Costa Fascinosa Review

Review of Costa Fascinosa

Launched in 2012, Costa Fascinosa is the fifth and last Concordia-class cruise liner, with sisterships Concordia, Pacifica, Serena, Favolosa and also Carnival Splendor. Fascinosa was Costa fleet's flagship until the launch of Costa Diadema in 2014.

History - construction and ownership

Costa Cruises is a Genoa-headquartered subsidiary company owned by Carnival Corporation. Costa is Europe's second-largest cruise line (after MSC) with year-round operations in the Mediterranean. Costa was founded in 1854 as a cargo shipping company. It started passenger shipping services in 1947, with regular Transatlantic crossings between Europe (Italy) and South America. In 2000, Costa Cruises was acquired by Carnival Corporation (shipowner).

Costa Fascinosa cruise ship

The 113,216-ton, 3,780-passenger cruise ship Costa Fascinosa was designed by the well-known cruising designer and interior architect Joe Farcus. The theme onboard is “things that fascinate”, meaning celebrities, exotic spaces and movie stars, synonymous with enticement and charm. If that does not narrow it down, try this: a “Gone With the Wind”- themed lido place. Fascinosa features increased whirlpool tubs and waterfalls, her “Millionaire Casino” is called after the Italian Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” movie. Fascinosa ship provides five dining rooms, casino, theater, two show lounges, library, steam room, modern fitness center, 4 pools, and 5 jacuzzis plus SPA.

Besides the ship's staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.

Cruise itinerary program

Costa Fascinosa itinerary program is based on 7-day Mediterranean round-trip cruises with departures from Barcelona, Rome, and Savona.

Cabins

Costa Fascinosa has a total of 1508 cabins (of which 58 Suite, 524 Balcony, 560 Inside rooms) in 13 grades.
