General

The 113,216-ton, 3,780-passenger cruise ship Costa Favolosa features all of the now-signature Concordia-class elements, like the Asian-themed Samsara Spa, a swimming pool space with a huge movie screen and sliding glass roof and a Grand Prix driving simulator. Favolosa also offers a handful of new options not found on its older sister vessels. These include 6 new apartments with private verandahs and Jacuzzis; a new place for teenagers with a 4D cinema, ice cream bar, and dance floor; and a new outdoor Aqua Park with a pirate galleon.

Besides the ship’s staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots – the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.

Kosher Travelers 

Let us pamper you with our freshly prepared cuisine by renowned chefs, cooked from start to finish on board and entirely from fresh ingredients.

From casual hot & cold buffets to elegant glatt kosher dining in our ocean view restaurant with choices sure to please those with even the most discerning tastes.

Expect fine china, crisp linens, fine glassware and cutlery, and sheer elegance through which you will enjoy a glatt kosher dining experience at sea.

To compliment the three delightful meals, there are also afternoon and late night snacks to tempt your palate.

You will enjoy the Glatt kosher cuisine of uncompromising quality and strict kashrut standards. All meat is Glatt kosher and milk products are Chalav Yisrael. Our on-board Kosher kitchen is under the full time supervision of a team of mashgichim, headed by our cruise Rav HaMachshir. 

nrRabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg was raised in Jerusalem and educated at the Ponevezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. After his marriage, he studied at the Beit Midrash of Horaah at the “Kol Ya'akov” Yeshiva, as well as with the Rishon LeZion, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, z"l He was ordained by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel.

Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg came to Vienna to serve as Rabbi in the community in 2002. During his tenure as Rabbi, he was the head of the "Zehut" Beit Midrash, and during his work in the community he dealt extensively in matters of Kashrus as a representative of many Batai Din (בד"ץ) around the world. Before 2002, while living in Israel he has dealt with kashrus issues and ran a weekly radio program on kashrus.

During the past decade Rabbi Rotenberg’s main specialty is turning hotels throughout Europe to be able to provide food of the highest Kashrus level for Pesach and the summer months. Kashrus of a hotel is a distinct job and requires much expertise in the field, familiarity with the industrial kitchens, the form of Kashering an industrial kitchen, and of course extensive knowledge of kosher food products in Europe. His Kashrut team are all hand picked and well versed with many years of experience.

Rabbi Rothenberg has spent many years developing the community Kosher list in Vienna for hundreds of food products sold in large retail chains throughout the Europe. This knowledge is very important and gives hotel operators in Europe the ability to bring local products and not need to import from Israel or the USA. His Kashrut experience has further expanded into the Kosher Cruises and he the Rav Hamachshir for Eddie’s Kosher Travel/Destinations Cruise packages.

Rabbi Rotenberg works throughout the year to obtain Kosher meat and poultry throughout Europe at the highest kosher level, at the best price. For every shechita Rabbi Rotenberg sends a special overseer on his behalf in order to ensure that the shipment of meat from the start will arrive at the hotel with the utmost supervision.

Rabbi Rottenberg currently serves as part time Rabbi of Savion community in Israel Further enquiries pls contact Rabbi Nechemia Rottenberg +972 584038543 +436889171489 or nr@zehut.org
