“…”Beyond the Pillars of Hercules” Mediterranean cruise on the Costa Favolosa. Top notch. Great places. We booked on excursion in, you guessed it, Casablanca, after reading numerous other people’s experiences online.We did the Rabat tour and enjoyed it…”

– Cruise Critic 

“…The buffet is very large running the whole length of the deck with so many food choices we were amazed. The food was tasty and plentiful with lots of good choices. If you want another main course you can ask for another main course and you will be served with a smile. All the staff were friendly and polite. The pools were never crowded and the hot tubs were delicious.”
