Cruising – Costa Favolosa in The Mediterranean

Our European cruise in Mediterranean

Costa Favolosa is a cruise ship based on the Concordia class design and owned by Costa Cruise line (A subsidiary of Carnival Cruise). The ship was built in Genoa, Italy and launched in 2010.

We travelled Western Mediterranean on the ship in the Spring of 2015. Our itinerary took us from Barcelona to Marseilles, then eastward by the Riviera coast into Savona, Italy.

The below video clip details the first part of our journey. Highlights include exploration of the beautiful interior, an amazing evening entertainment show and a memorable dinner.

Grand Turk

Video blog of our trip to the Turks and Caicos

Grand Turk Island is an island in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We visited the island in 2016 on a Carnival Cruise. Grand Turk contains the territory’s capital, Cockburn Town and the JAGS McCartney International Airport. During the early 1960s NASA Gemini space program had several capsule landing on Atlantic near the island. An interesting memorial of these missions are showcased near the Carnival Cruise terminal.

Half Moon Cay, The Bahamas

A video blog of our trip to the tiny island chains in the Bahamas

We travelled to Half Moon Cay in 2016 via a Carnival Cruise Ship. The island is part of a chain of tiny islands (Cays) in Central Bahamas. Due to its small size, there is no large harbor for the ship to dock. So we took a boat from the ship to its tiny harbor.

Once in the island, we took a tour and enjoyed a traditional Caribbean lunch. Enjoy the video clip to learn more!
