After the scheduled call at Marseille was cancelled due to the damage, the following stay in Savona starting on Mar 6 at 8 a.m. was extended for the necessary repairs. On Mar 7 at 8 p.m. the ship sailed again bound for Kalamata with an ETA of Mar 10. The lost anchor had to be replaced in the near future due to its safety relevance.
Costa stated that the safety of the passengers had never been endangered.
