With 14 floors and 1,400 rooms, the largest cruise ship in Pakistani history has docked in Karachi.
A 14-story high-cruise Italian ship has docked at Karachi’s Gadani Shipyard with no intention of leaving. Unlike other ships that have arrived at this shipbreaking yard in the past, this ship would not be cut up into parts.
Celestyal Experience (previously Costa Romantica) is a Costa Cruises ship from the 1990s. An Italian shipbuilder constructed the 56,800 gross-ton cruise ship, which debuted in 1992.
New Choice Enterprises, a Pakistani business, purchased it for scrap but subsequently discovered it in “excellent condition” and wanted to turn it into a hotel or cruise ship.
