Ship Facts: Costa Favolosa Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Favolosa Deck Plans
Amazing Cruise!! Loved It!!!

This was our first ever cruise!! and It was SuperB!!!

Our cabin was on Deck 8, very comfortable; bed and the shower was good & we also had a sofa. Loads of wardrobe space, not noisy.. and with Balcony. Near the lifts, all we had to do is go up 1 flight of stairs for breakfast and Lunch; & use the lift to go to the Restaurant on Deck 3 or other bars etc. on Deck 5. Room was kept very clean; Our steward who was in charge of our Room was amazing he came twice a day and everything was spotless...always smiling & ready to help! Thanks for everything Roel!!

The food was Excellent, the buffets at lunch and breakfast will be a little packed, some queuing to be expected but alot of seating available, as one can also sit in the bars outside which are connected to the restaurant, which also has upstairs where there is also a Sandwich station. For Lunch the Grill will also be open serving burgers, hot dogs etc.

Coffee, tea, milk and water was available free of charge in the buffet 24hrs.

The evening meal in Duca D'Orleans one of the two MDR, was simply excellent with alot to choose from. We had an All Inclusive package and therefore had unlimited amount of drinks through out the cruise which was very worth buying; MDR served tiny portions of food but if you like a particular plate one can opt to ask his server for a larger portion, but having a 6 course meal be sure that you will be full by the end of the evening, if You will not than there will be Buffet in Deck 9. Not everyday is the same for the Dinner Buffet; sometimes only Pizza will be available.

Our Servers at the MDR were simply amazing, they went out of their way to make sure that we are satisfied and having a great time! Way to go Eugene & Putu!!!

The cruise is mainly for Italians, however all the announcements were in 5 different languages, Italian, English, French, German & Spanish. Nathalie our English host was available to chat an hour a day, and she was very helpful.

Great Shows & good entertainment, always having something you can do. A daily program is delivered to the cabin that let you know of what will be happening on the ship.

We went to 1 excursion- Classical Rome costed 96€; Could have been cheaper, but we had 2 guides who were very informative & explained the History of Rome, and lunch included (3 course meal incl. wine and Water) Excursion was not available in English, but this depends on demand.

When visiting Savona, we were told that there is nothing to see there, but at the Port there is an information centre where you can get a map with all the spots worth visiting- make sure to visit the Sistine chapel in Savona (tickets 1eur), and you can also swim in a nearby Sandy beach just 10 mins walk from the Port.

Photos are quite expensive 20€ each.

We were only disappointed about the handling of the luggage when disembarking, as we had one of the luggage damaged.
