I just read the review from april 30 2014, and I think we were on the same cruise. And I could not agree more. This cruise was not a nice experience. The ship was too crowded, lots of kids running around and occupying all swimmingpools. ... Read more

We travelled for 7 days starting on the 15 October. We chose the ship because of the itinerary, and the ports were all interesting. The ship seemed to be very crowded most of the time even though the weather was fine enough for the ... Read more

Check in started at 1pm. Embarkation was quick here in Malta since there was a group of about a hundred staring their cruise. They don’t give you your cruise cards, but you find everything on the bed once you go to your cabin. No ... Read more

Well, our friend had never cruised, and asked if we'd help her out. So, for ease of arrangements, we flew independently from Liverpool to Barcelona with Easyjet. We have been to Barca before, so knew the transfers were easy enough. A 7am ... Read more

We booked this cruise because the price during the easter holidays was very favourable. We had read the reviews online before going and were rather concerned about a few things. Overall we had a great time and would book with Costa again. ... Read more

Excited to be back in Venice and ready for our 7 night cruise, we caught the People Mover to the Dock. Not well signed but we found where to take our luggage (and were given No. 18 for embarkation) and then around the corner to the ... Read more

This review is long overdue as we travelled in October, but here goes anyway. Hope someone finds it useful. I travelled in October half term with my mother and two children aged 9 and 6. After a somewhat traumatic start (9 hours in ... Read more

Compared to Royal Caribbean: it looks like there is less personnel per passenger, personnel at Costa looking harried and less friendly. 7206 Handicapped accessible. Food: buffet is bad, and pizza is awful. Enjoyed the (rare) olives ... Read more

Although not as stylish as Celebrity or Royal Caribbean, this cruise did pleasantly surprise us. Spacious public areas (a bit decorated over the top, but you get used to it), nice furniture, enough food varieties to choose from. Main ... Read more

My wife and I travelled on the Costa Favalosa out of Venice on 23 September 2012 and visited Bari, Katakolon, Izmir, Istanbul and Dubrovnik. We had a standard inside cabin on Deck 7. We initially chose this cruise because it fitted in ... Read more

Favolosa was great for my family (2 parents+2 teenagers) - we expected fun and relaxed vacation, and that's exactly what we got. Last time we went west mediterranean by MSC Fantasia, and we expected elegant, peacefull, international ship. ... Read more

As Floridians who primarily sail the Caribbean with Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess and Celebrity we were initially a bit wary to book with Costa. In addition to the "issues" that Costa has had this year with two of their ships, we ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise and was part of a coach & cruise holiday with Leger. We embarked in Venice after driving to Italy with overnight stays in Belgium and Austria. The boarding process appeared to be a bit of a cattle market ... Read more

If you like to socialize with English speakers in a non-smoking environment, do NOT go on Costa Favolosa. There are NO "NON SMOKING" AREAS. In 7 days, we were probably exposed to the equivalent of living 3 years in a heavy smoker's ... Read more

There were seven of us total in 4 Cabins. We all had balconies on the 8Th deck and, upon boarding, I was impressed with the cabins. I felt they were a bit bigger than the standard cabins on the Cruise lines we have been on (Carnival, ... Read more

Firstly, i'll summarise myself. I like to know what i'm getting on a holiday, and enjoy nice dry heat destinations. Prior to 2011, i'd never taken a cruise, and my winter resort holiday to Marsa Alam, Egypt in December 2011 was negated ... Read more
