Costa Riviera

Costa Riviera was built as Guglielmo Marconi at the Cantieri Riuniti dell'Adriatico, Monfalcone (now Fincantieri) for the Europe-Australia service of Lloyd Triestino.
Like her sister Galileo Galilei which joined Chandris and later became the first ship of Celebrity Cruises Guglielmo Marconi underwent an extensive refit to become the cruise ship Costa Riviera of Costa Cruises.

Whereas Costa Riviera has been scrapped, Galileo Galilei - the later Sun Vista - sank in the Strait of Malacca following a fire. You can find more information on this incident on this page at Maritime Matters.
