Easter Holiday on the Costa Favolosa, a family holiday
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
The staff were not as friendly an approachable as on the NCL cruise we did in January but were helpful enough.
The food was very good, plenty of selection. The dinner is a sumptuous 7 course meal which lasts about 2 hours....those with little ones remember to take a couple of things to keep them going....children were given a colouring sheet that listed their choices of food (although they could of course have the same as you) but they did not have any crayons or pencils?!
We enjoyed the entertainment but if you are on the early sitting for dinner you have to wait until 9.45 for your show to start, but as it was only about 1/2 hour long it was okay.
The ship is very well maintained, there are a horde of staff constantly keeping it clean. The decor is very glitzy with plenty of attention to detail.
We were upgraded to an outside cabin which was wonderful, much more spacious than an inside and so nice to have the wonderful views. The only quibble with our cabin is that we were right next to the stock and ice room for the stewards, who unlike NCL start work very early (sometimes 5.30 am) and we would be woken up by them as they chatted and loaded their trolleys. We did complain to the manager and there was some improvement.....if you are able to request a room away from this stock rooms.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable cruise. We met some fabulous people and had a great time. I would book with them again but if a cruise came up on and NCL ship that was similar in price I would probably go on that instead! Less

Great view but too noisy as we were right opposite the ice room which the stewards would start using at 7am.
