Costa Favolosa Review

Review of Costa Favolosa

The 2011-built Costa Favolosa cruise ship is the fourth Concordia-class Costa liner, with sisterships Concordia, Pacifica, Serena, Fascinosa and also Carnival Splendor.

The vessel (IMO number 9479852) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247311100) 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 Favolosa cruise ship

The 3000-passenger ship Costa Favolosa features all of the signature Concordia-class elements, like the Asian-themed Samsara Spa, a swimming pool space with a huge movie screen and sliding glass roof and a Grand Prix driving simulator. Favolosa also offers a handful of new options not found on its older sister vessels. These include 6 new apartments with private verandahs and Jacuzzis; a new place for teenagers with a 4D cinema, ice cream bar, and dance floor; and a new outdoor Aqua Park with a pirate galleon.

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 Favolosa staterooms (1507 total, in 16 grades) include 70x Suites, 524x Balconies, 321x Oceanviews and 592x Inside cabins.

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 6x Samsara Suites are with balcony Jacuzzis.

Itineraries

Costa Favolosa's itinerary program is based on Central and Western Mediterranean cruises, alternated seasonally with voyages in South America or the Caribbean. Transatlantic repositioning cruise crossings are offered with the ship's redeployment in spring and fall.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, the ship's 2020-2021 Caribbean program (Dec 6 - Mar 19) of 7-day and 14-day roundtrips from homeport Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe was canceled. Favolosa was rescheduled to operate in the Mediterranean starting on April 2, 2021.

  • Starting November 20, 2021, Costa Favolosa had scheduled cruises in South America (a total of 144 days/almost 5 months long) - Costa's longest season in the region. Favolosa offered 5 itineraries (3 to 6 nights in length) leaving roundtrip from homeport Santos-Sao Paolo and visiting Buzios, Salvador da Bahia, Ilhabela, Balneario Camboriu.
  • December 13, 2021, through April 2022, Costa Favolosa was planned for homeporting in Rio de Janeiro for 15x 8-night "Prata" itineraries visiting Itajai (optional embarkation/for the first time), Montevideo Uruguay and Buenos Aires Argentina.
  • Favolova's South America 2021-2022 season had to start with the Transatlantic crossing (RepositionCruises.com) from Savona on November 2, 2021. The 18-night itinerary visited in Europe Marseille, Barcelona, Malaga, Casablanca, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and in Brasil - Recife, Salvador, Ilheus, Rio de Janeiro. The return/eastbound 15-night Transatlantic voyage had to start on April 16, 2022, from Rio de Janeiro and visit Salvador, Maceio, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Malaga, Barcelona, Savona (ends on May 1). However, the entire program was canceled.

Eventually, due to the Coronavirus crisis, the Costa ship Favolosa was paused for 2,5+ years (March 2020 through October 2022) restarting operations on October 7th from Tarragona Spain (3-day Mediterranean itinerary to Marseille France and Savona Italy). The South America 2022-2023 schedule was for the period December 5, 2022, thru April 14, 2023, and based on 7-day roundtrips from Santos Brazil (principal homeport), plus select roundtrips from Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
