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.

Fascinosa is Costa's 5th Concordia-Class liner (first cruise on May 6, 2012), with sisterships FavolosaPacificaSerena, Concordia (sunk in 2012) and Carnival Splendor. Ship's name was chosen via online competition (like Favolosa). Fascinosa is the Italian word for "fascinating", and Favolosa - for "fabulous". Among the amenities onboard are the Grand Prix driving simulator, a pool area with a giant movie screen and sliding glass roof and the Asian-themed Samsara Spa with a restaurant who is associated.

In 2017 (April 6-9) the whole cruise ship was booked for a private event - an Indian wedding ceremony. Fascinosa was on a 4-day Mediterranean cruise (Genoa to Savona) with an exclusive itinerary visiting Barcelona and Marseille. The ship was used as a huge wedding resort by the Sajan family (India). The groom was Adel Sajan - son of Rizwan Sajan - founder and chairman of Danube Group (major building materials company based in Dubai). Adel Sajan (Danube Group's director) married Sana Khan (beauty queen, artist, writer). For more info - CruiseMapper news
