"GUGLIELMO MARCONI" bought by COSTA CRUISES

After a very short period with I.C.I. both ships were sold in November of 1983, we've seen on the previous post, the GALILEO GALILEI to CHANDRIS was the first and then MARCONI was purchased by COSTA, she would be renamed COSTA RIVIERA. The ship went for a complete rebuilt that completely transformed her profile, unfortunately she was no longer the beautiful sleek MARCONI that we have known for the past 20 years, but of course she was back where she belonged, cruising. The ship is seen here still laid-up at Genova but already owned by COSTA, her funnel changing colours and a video dated from 1997 showing the ship arriving Savona.
