Costa Cruises has released a statement claiming that it has appointed Adam D. Tihany as the Creative Director for two new LNG-fuelled vessels, which are scheduled for delivery in 2019 and 2020. The vessels will be built at the Meyer shipyard in Turku, Finland, and will exceed 180 000 t each. They will each be capable of carrying 6600 passengers.
Tihany said: “It is a rare honour to narrate a design story from the director's chair.
“The fact that this opportunity creates a partnership with Costa Cruises is all the more extraordinary. The phrase 'Italy's Finest' not only describes the design concept, but wholly embodies the Costa brand.”
The President of Costa Cruises, Neil Palomba, said: “We are fortunate to have Mr. Tihany, the world's preeminent hospitality designer, as Creative Director for our next-generation ships.
"'Italy's finest' concept represents the roots and the identity of Costa Cruises. It deals with the best things that our country has to offer: passion, quality, hospitality and, of course, style. I am confident that Mr. Tihany will create a unique style for our new ships, that will help us to offer our guests unforgettable and happy holidays."
