FLAVIA: 1947 - Deluxe deck plans/interiors brochure

Product Description

Costa Line:  From 1972, a twelve-page interiors/deck plan brochure for the FLAVIA.  Costa printed these deluxe brochures for all their fleet and filled them with gleaming interior views and color-coded plans.

A quick history lesson.  The ship took to the seas in 1947 as Cunard's combo liner MEDIA, designed to haul cargo and attract rich travelers.  It didn't work.  Cogedar Line bought the cast-off Cunarder in 1961 and performed one of the most radical transformations of the 1960s to create the sleek passenger liner FLAVIA.  When her around-the-world route was disrupted by the closure of the Suez Canal, Costa bought her.  In December 1968 the FLAVIA began her highly successful Caribbean cruise service out of Miami.

Now to the brochure.  Famed Italian designer Matteo Longoni penned the interiors for Cogedar and Costa wisely left them in place.  Photos show the split-level Riviera Lounge, Via Veneto, Dolphin Lounge, Floridiana Dining Room, two cabins, Swimming Pool, and several general scenes.  Six decks are shown in color-coded detail.  I've compared these plans to those of the MEDIA.  Good luck finding any similarities.

The FLAVIA sailed for Costa until 1982, then went into long lay-up which ended only when the ship caught fire and capsized in 1989.

Excellent condition.
