CRUISE NEWS: COSTA MAGICA TO REPLACE COSTA CONCORDIA

Costa Cruises will replace the shipwrecked Costa Concordia (114,147-gt, built 2006) with the smaller COSTA MAGICA (102,587-gt, built 2004) for the 2012 (northern) summer season, it has been announced. Costa Magica is currently cruising in South American waters.
Although only a little smaller in terms of her gross registered tonnage, Costa Magica carries over a thousand less passengers than her ill-fated sister, 2,720 as against 3,800.
Meanwhile the fallout from the disaster which occurred alongside Giglio Island is growing by the day. With the salvage team from Dutch company Smit Salvage on site to recover the oils on board the cruise ship, but no word yet as to how she will be salvaged, her ultimate owners US-based company Carnival Corporation says the loss of the ship and resultant fallout will set 2012 financial year profits back by up to US$175 million.
These estimates do not include any impact on possible bookings. Carnival revealed that the net value of the Costa Concordia at 31 December 2011 was $490 million and that the ship carried insurance coverage of $510m.

So they stand to profit $20 million on the sinking?
