16th ship in the Costa Cruises fleet is on her way
Costa Fascinosa, as her name suggests - in Italian “fascinosa” means “charming” - was conceived as a tribute to charm in all its forms.
The interiors are inspired by the atmospheres of great historic films, the protagonists who made them famous and the works that brought success to the most celebrated theatres in the world.
The new flagship, which entered service in May 2012, offers a holiday experience brimming with atmosphere and authentic cinematic locations. Interiors are designed to be works of art themselves: from fine furnishings, where the dominant colours are silver, gold and purple, to the sculptures and lights.
