Default I like Costa Favolosa so much !

Have I ever been on that ship ?
Nope !

but I get 2 tickets already to Venice and next year to Dubai.

Why on hell do I love Costa Favolosa so much without ever beeng there ?
Right !
Because they sell the balcony and all other smaller cabin for only 24-30 % higher prize as for double ocupation. That is more than I can dream about.

Some years ago I was a fan of Aida Cara with its 20% , but now I "hate "
them for 85% for 1 ocupation of double cabin.

For the "same" cabin on the same route on Aida I must pay the double prize.

I know, I know Costa and Aida have the same boss.
Nevertheless badBy Aida , chao Costa

Serge....

Thank you for the tip. Is that a regular price for singles on Costa, or did you get a special deal. More details, please!

Hi Paul,

I don't think that is any special deal , I booked it in Web on kreuzfahrberator page.
I am not sure but maybe it is possible to get such "deals" only from Germany or Italy, but one can see and compare there prize there.

As a matter of fact I returned from Costa Favolosa.

That was the best ship I've ever seen.
(I can compare with Aida Cara, Golden Prinzess, Epic, R-7 or delphin rennisance, Costa classica)

As for me Costa Favolosa is really great.

I saw only one big minus : Italian people are really very nice
but they don't speak any language at all.

meal, excursions, etc. were the best one and perfect organized.
Last year I thought Epic was great - and it was true But I must say:
as for me Costa favolosa get from me 1,5 star more.

So my ship classification:
Prinzess 3-
Epic 3
Aida 3+
Costa Classica 3+
R-7 (officially 5) 3++
Costa Favolosa 4+


Of course there was a lot of things I didn't like on Costa Favolosa.
If there would be some questions I would be glad to give some more information.
But for any of my next tour I would try to get only the Costa ship (any modern costa ship - I think there are 3-4 or even 5 of them).
And not only because it is cheap, but because as for me it is the best one.


The ship passanger "population":
16 - Russians
400 Germans + lot from German speaking countries (as a matter of fact in Europe the most people speak German and any German sitizen speak English + maybe some other europe languages).

A lot people from Spain (they speak no language at all as Italian people too)

and maybe 2500 - 3000 Italian people.

Of course the whole relevant for tourists crew speaks English and sometime even German.

But can you imagine ?!- they have even one russian hostess on that route for 16 tourists from Russia and print the information every day on russian language for them too.

So I think it is really the best international ship.
And they have the best people playing and singing even in the bars e.g.
three violinist girls , and of course jazz intepreter Alex : I think one must book the next cruise on Costa Favolsa only to see and hear that people.

Haven't been on Costa, but was on MSC Opera when it was at FLL. There were so many europeans on board! All announcements were in 5 languages. Our tour was broken into groups according to our language, so each bus/van had their own tour guide.
