A Costa Fortuna Cruise welcomes everybody, who likes adventures, fun, rest and the ocean. Enjoy your holiday's onboard one of the most well equipped cruising liners ever. These are not only words and the Costa Fortuna history successfully proves it.
On the face of it, the most significant difference between the Costa Fortuna and the other ships in the Italian-based Costa fleet is her size. At 105,000 tons and carrying two thousand seven hundred and twenty passengers, this ship has captured the "biggest ship ever" crown not only for Costa but for all Italian-based cruise lines. However, what is really important about the Costa Fortuna, launched in mid November in Italy, is that her arrival marks a continued evolution in the ship design for the Genova-based Costa Crociere. Three years later, since Costa was fully acquired by Carnival Corporation, the line was heavily invested, both: in financial commitments and in developing prototypical new vessels. As a result, the Costa has established a new standard of contemporary cruising that the other European-based cruise lines are only beginning to emulate.
The Costa Fortuna design proves to excel the most refined and fastidious expectations. The Costa Fortuna ship has a rather high balcony ratio. Forty-four percent of the cabins have balconies: 522 of 1,358. Standard cabins have any kind of balconies, from inside to the ocean view to the basic models with cubbyhole bathrooms featuring showers. The storage space is good and the cabins offer enough room, particularly, if you are more ship focused than "stay in your cabin" oriented. There are two models of suites, both of which are quite pleasant and roomy, presenting double-wide balconies with teak furnishings and bathtubs in the bathrooms.
The routs of the Costa Fortuna Cruise do not fall behind the design of the ship. Therefore, you will visit the most prominent European cities, Rome and Athens including. Your days ashore are invitations to adventures, education and the pure pleasure of seeing things you have only read about before. You will not only visit castles, museums and galleries, but also explore ancient cities through winding canals and see everything with your own eyes: from glorious gardens and gilded theaters to famous boulevards and fabled landmarks.
According to the old saying, all roads lead to Rome: why not follow the wisdom of the past and visit the city, which is still powerful and glorious even nearly 2000 years after the empire's fall. The guides, employed by the Costa Fortuna Cruise, will do their best to fit the most fascinating places in your schedule. You will be awed by the sheer sanctity and enormity of the Vatican City. You will be floored by the Renaissance masterpieces, found in the city's museums and art galleries. You will be amazed by the colossal Coliseum and charmed by the seemingly seamless combination of the old and the new in Rome, the Eternal City.
Visit Athens during your Costa Fortuna Cruise and see the very place, where our civilization originated. Although Athens is a modern city, the history and antiquity of Greece is not entirely forgotten here. That is the reason why there is a great number of places, commemorating Greece's achievements in science, sport, architecture and art during the Classical Age. Pay a visit to the Natural Archeological Museum, the Acropolis or the Parthenon, which are only a few glorious sights on the list.
The Costa Fortuna Cruise bears the name, which promises to bring good luck to any of its guests. Do not miss your chance to take a piece of it!
