Costa Favolosa

An innovative cruise ship designed to stun

Weighing in at 114,500 gross tonnage and with accommodation for up to 3,800 guests, the Costa Favolosa is the largest Italian cruise ship.

She has been designed to stun onlookers with her spacious outside areas, state-of-the-art technology, impeccable service, and art and design.

Among the main innovations are six new veranda suites with their own Jacuzzis and a new entertainment area, with a 4D Cinema and PlayStation World. There is also a new children’s open-air Aqua Park water playground with its own pirate galleon.

Other Innovations

  • The 6,000sq m Samsara Spa, one of the largest wellness centres ever built on a cruise ship, with dedicated cabins and restaurant
  • A large central lido extending over two decks with a sliding glass roof for all-year round relaxation and a giant 18m2 film screen showing music videos and other entertainment
  • Grand Prix driving simulator 60m above the sea, produced from an original GP car, reproducing the excitement of the world’s best racing circuits
  • The world’s most advanced golf simulator

  • The brand new design aft pool area is particularly large and inviting: 1,000sq m of space dedicated to relaxation and entertainment with 160 sun loungers, suspended whirlpool tubs and an invigorating waterfall.

    The shipboard gym offers all the latest Technogym equipment, which allows users to browse the Internet, watch TV and listen to their iPods while they train.

    The culinary experiences on board offer something for everyone: from the à la carte Club to the “wellness” restaurant, the self-service buffet with dishes typical of the places visited during the cruise, and the traditional Mediterranean delicacies in the two main restaurants.
    Costa Favolosa’s exclusive, specially commissioned art collection features more than 6,000 works that enhance the interior decoration of the ship and her cabins.

    The addition of the Costa Favolosa’s sister ship Costa Fascinosa, also being built in Marghera, will complete the Italian company’s ambitious fleet expansion programme when she launches in Spring 2012.
