The renovations for the transition to "neoCollection" were originally planned for November 2013 only to be postponed in the fall of 2014.
At the conclusion of the works, the cruise ship has sailed on 18 December 2014 from the Italian port of Savona to the Seychelles joining the fleet, "Costa neoCollection" already involved neoRomantica Costa and Costa neoRiviera.
The structural change was not invasive like the neoRomantica mate. The most obvious change is made in the aft part of the ship, the bridge 10 "Al Fresco Café", where a metal frame was installed in order to close the outdoor buffet area. It was also installed in the vicinity of the funnel, a new antenna for satellite services.
