Costa Fortuna Review

Review of Costa Fortuna

The 2003-built Costa Fortuna cruise ship is the fourth Destiny-class Costa ship, with sisterships Costa Magica and the CCL-Carnival Cruise Lines ships Triumph-Sunrise, Victory-Radiance and Destiny-Sunshine.

The vessel (IMO number 9239783) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247094800) 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 Fortuna cruise ship

The 2700-passenger ship Costa Fortuna features a high balcony ratio, alternative dining, splashy decorations. The vessel was built on the same platform as CCL's boats Carnival Destiny (remodeled/reconstructed in 2013/USD 155 million), Carnival Triumph (remodeled in 2019/USD 200M) and Carnival Victory (remodeled in 2021/USD 200M).

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 Fortuna staterooms (1354 total, in 9 grades) include 58x Suites, 464x Balconies, 321x Oceanviews and 511 Inside cabins. Most staterooms are sized 185 ft2 / 17 m2 (nearly 40% of all) and have private step-out balconies. Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 27, single cabins are 14. The largest accommodations are the Grand Suites (345 ft2 / 32 m2, with terrace sized 85 ft2 / 8 m2).

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

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Mealtimes on Fortuna generally follow the traditions rather than set the pace for innovations. At breakfast, there is casual fare in ship's Restaurant Buffet Colombo 1954, including omelets to order, along with cold cheeses and cuts. At lunch expect the addition of an outdoor grill by the pool, where you can get grilled chicken, French fries and twice-cooked burgers. Lunch in either of the restaurants offers daily specials. There is also a daily "tea time" at the buffet. Dinner is the big event onboard Costa Fortuna. Most of the attention is focused on a formal-style meal that can last 3 hours. Alternatives are limited to Restaurant Buffet Cristoforo Colombo 1954, transformed into a pizzeria from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m., and Club Grand Conte 1927, at top of the ship, for a romantic experience (with EUR 23 service charge). Costa Fortuna also offers complimentary 24-Hour Room-Service.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Costa Fortuna was designed by Carnival ships design-master Joe Farcus. What passengers get is a pan-European voyage mixed with the comforts of the American style. Fortuna cruise ship provides a casino, theater, 3 swimming pools, and 5 jacuzzis plus SPA. Club Squok is the ship's kids' facility. Teens have their own area next door.

Itineraries

Costa Fortuna itinerary program was based on Caribbean round-trip cruises from Pointe-a-Pitre (Guadeloupe). In the summer, Fortuna sailed in Europe on Mediterranean itineraries from Rome, Barcelona, and Savona, as well as to the Norwegian Fjords, leaving from Amsterdam, with Transatlantic repositioning crossings.

Currently, Costa Fortuna is homeported in Shanghai China, serving the booming Asian tourism market. In 2019, the ship will be deployed back in Europe (repositioned to the Mediterranean). In Asia, Fortuna will be replaced by the new ship (specifically built for China) Costa Smeralda. Fortuna is deployed in Asia since April 2016.

In the Mediterranean, Fortuna will be homeported in Genoa Italy (March through November 2019). The Spring-Fall itinerary from Genoa visits the ports Marseille, Barcelona, Valencia, Civitavecchia-Rome and La Spezia. The Summer itinerary from Genoa visits the ports Marseille, Tarragona (Costa Daurada), Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, and Olbia.

Costa Fortuna Wiki

Fortuna is of Costa's Destiny-class liners, with sisterships Costa Magica, Carnival Destiny (Sunshine since 2013), Carnival Triumph (Sunrise since 2019), Carnival Victory (Radiance since 2020).

Costa Cruises Fortuna has almost the same architecture as the Destiny-class (oldest) Carnival Cruise Lines ships. However, Fortuna is somehow resembling an old steamship/ocean liner. In the Atrium, passengers can see exhibitions of ship models. Many Italian steamships, along with 26 Costa ships (including Fortuna) are arranged upside down there. Fortuna's all public rooms are named after and inspired by a different vessel.

In 2016, Costa Asia confirmed that Fortuna will join the other three Costa ships homeported in China, further increasing company's capacity on the Chinese market by 38%. In early 2016, Fortuna started roundtrips leaving from China (homeport Shanghai), with berthing at Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal. In 2017, the list of Costa Asia ships also included Atlantica, neoRomantica, Serena and Victoria.

In 2019, the ship was deployed back in Europe (repositioned to the Mediterranean). In Asia, Fortuna was replaced by the new ship (specifically built for China) Costa Smeralda.
