I should have read the reviews before I booked: Costa Favolosa Cruise Review by Jiena
Overall Member Rating
I should have read the reviews before I booked
Embarkation: Malta (Valletta)
Reception staff were always very abrupt and annoyed that you dared to bother them.i agree with previous reviews, food was not appetising, fish previously frozen and bland and fruit tasteless. Ship to overcrowded, staff too pushy to sell you tours and next cruise. I More went for a message & reflexology session and came out more stressed having to repeatedly decline from buying products forced onto me by therapist. They even have therapists near the bar in the evening, accosting you and not letting you move on until you listen to beauty treatments they have on offer. Loud speakers going on in the corridors incessantly announcing excusions. If they put as much effort into ensuring that passengers were having a good time, it would have been a great cruise for all. The lift situation is ridiculous. My mother is unable to walk up stairs and when we had to go anywhere an extra 15
minutes had to be added on most occasions.
The gym was overcrowded, never any clean towels in changing room, only 2 showers so a long wait or just give up and go to cabin. Pools overcrowded and noisy, never managed to get in. They have a wellness spa which looked more relaxed but all extortionately priced. Less
Cabin review: 6397
Cabin was lovely. We had a balcony, which was the best part of the cruise as the decks were too crowded. Room was spacious and clean.
