Overview

Costa Fascinosa first debuted in 2012 as one of the largest ships in the fleet. Carrying 2,962 passengers, the ship offers a variety of dining and entertainment options geared toward both adults and kids.

Families can catch a flick at the 4D cinema or race against each other at the Grand Prix simulator. Additionally, kids can spend time at age-appropriate youth programs and the children's pool, while adults enjoy one of the 13 bars or get treatments at the two-level Samsara Spa.

For dining, guests can choose from five restaurants, including two specialty dining venues that require reservations and an additional fee. Some recent cruisers noted they were disappointed with their wait times in the dining rooms.

In terms of lodging, about a third of cabins offer balconies, and all cabins come equipped with minibars and flat-screen TVs. Guests can also opt for Samsara category staterooms, which offer unlimited access to the spa and aroma diffusers. That said, some recent cruisers describe the ship's staff members as inattentive and caution that the ship's public areas can feel overly crowded.

In 2018-19, Costa Fascinosa offers sailings in Europe and South America
