  • Samsara Restaurant- for an additional charge, guests can indulge in Mediterranean and Pacific cuisine at this sophisticated restaurant.

  • Classic Restaurant- for a more formal, sit-down meal, head to this main restaurant for a taste of classic Italian flavours.

If you’re looking for a cruise experience that is just as memorable for the time you spend on the ship as the hours spent exploring the exciting destinations, then look no further than Costa Favolosa.

Recreation

There is no shortage of activities to please all the family onboard Costa Favolosa. One of the most popular areas is the pool deck, with a specially reserved aqua park area so that kids can enjoy themselves too. Away from the pool, the Grand Prix Simulator is a fun way to spend some time pretending to be an F1 driver. If you’d like to find some peace and quiet for a little while, head to the library where you can lose yourself in one of the many books available. For anyone who steps onboard and realises they’ve forgotten to pack some holiday essentials, the Costa Boutique has everything you could possibly need (and more) for a great price.

Customer reviews for Costa Favolosa

We went to Brazil in March with Costa Favolosa we find it very dissapointing with the food and no buffet.  After 5pm very little English speaking and it's costly for drinks and is dirty spoke to the waiter and they just look at you not recommend this ship but I hope not every costa ship is the same .

We found the ship to be in excellent condition and well maintained. However, there were issues regarding extra expenses on board for items that on other cruise lines would have been free. The compulsory service charge would seem to be a way of extracting further money from the customer on top of the cruise price. The General Conditions state the contract price includes the services and facilities set out in the brochure. The layout of the ship in some areas was poorly designed. The reception area was badly positioned next to an entertainment venue and the noise level was not condusive to business needs at the desk. Lauren the Argentinian guest manager was extremely helpful and professional. Our waiters (Ruel and Rodrigo) and cabin steward (Generoso) were excellent and without fault. However, some additional training for other members of staff would be desirable. An example: staff pushing past you,not greeting you as is expected on other cruise ships where the customer always comes first. This could be a first class ship if these issues were resolved and apart from these examples given we enjoyed our cruise.

Great itinery Brazil to Italy , great cabin with balcony, lovely ship decor wise but the food and the entertainment completely let it down . Also was dropped off at Nice airport eight hours before the return flight was due with nowhere to leave cases , unacceptable .
