Costa Fascinosa Review

Review of Costa Fascinosa

The 2012-built Costa Fascinosa cruise ship is the fifth and last Concordia-class Costa 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.

The vessel (IMO number 9479864) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247313500) and registered in Genoa.

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 3000-passenger ship Costa Fascinosa was designed by the well-known cruising designer and interior architect Joe Farcus. The liner's theme 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.

Decks and Cabins

Costa Fascinosa staterooms (1507 total, in 16 grades) include 70x Suites, 524x Balconies, 321x Oceanviews and 592x Inside cabins. Most staterooms are sized 185 ft2 / 17 m2 (nearly 40% of all) and have a private step-out balcony. Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 28. The largest accommodations are the Grand Suites (345 ft2 / 32 m2, with terraces sized 85-120 ft2 / 8-11 m2). There are also Spa Staterooms (103 total, including 12x Spa Suites), and single cabins (12).

The boat has 13 passenger decks, of which 8 are with cabins.
