Costa Favolosa Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Costa Favolosa, a Concordia-class ship sailing since 2011, is decorated in the tradition of majestic palaces and museums. With that regal theme, the atrium characterizes the grand Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles. More than 6,000 works by original and contemporary artists are featured in public spaces. Routes in the Western or Eastern Mediterranean are where Costa Favolosa is usually found.
The largest ships built for an Italian cruise line are larger versions of identical sister ships Costa Magica and Costa Fortuna, which were derived from parent Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Triumph and Carnival Conquest. But Costa has pulled out all the stops with these vessels.
The Samsara Spas are far from ho-hum, both in facilities and amenities. Some of the largest at sea, they span 20,500 square feet. Luxurious, Samsara staterooms and suites are located adjacent to and one deck below the spa itself. A health-conscious Samsara Restaurant is reserved for their dining pleasure on deck 3. Other cool features are not one, but two swimming pools with retractable roofs, a huge outdoor movie screen, and a Grand Prix racing simulator—just like the ones Formula One race car drivers use for training.
