Carnival Corporation has sold its COSTA MAGICA, marking the 24th ship to be sold by the company since the start of the pandemic, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “The ship’s AIS signal now reflects its new name, “MYKONOS MAGIC”, and its registry has been changed to Bermuda, indicating a change in ownership. The ship was delivered to the Italian port of BRINDISI on February 8th.

“With a gross tonnage of 102,784 and built-in 2004 for $400 million, the COSTA MAGICA has the capacity to accommodate 2,720 guests. Although no official details of the sale have been disclosed, it is widely reported that the ship has been acquired by Marios Iliopoulos’s Greek ferry company, Seajets.
“Seajets has been expanding its fleet since the pandemic, acquiring five ships from Carnival in 2020 and two ships from the now-bankrupt Cruise and Maritime Voyages, as well as one ship from the Royal Caribbean Group.

“Carnival has been selling ships as part of its fleet renewal program since the onset of the pandemic. The company has disposed its smallest and oldest ships and has continued to receive deliveries of new builds. It has also stated that it anticipates ordering more ships in the future. At the beginning of the pandemic, Carnival had 104 ships in its fleet, but now it has only 90.”
