We have sailed on Costa before and promised that we would not do so again, but the dates and the length of the cruise and the ports to be visited made us get excited again, and it was a different ship this time, so we thought, why not? ... Read more

Well, what a disappointment. Whilst we understood that Costa is by no means a premium cruise line, we did not expect SUCH a poor level of service and facilities. Apparently the ship just underwent a multi-million Dollar refurbishment, ... Read more

Well where do I start. In all my years of cruising, this cruise was the worst and what the cruise industry has built up over time was ruined by Costa. As Carnival owns Costa and many other, the Costa name is a liability to the Carnival ... Read more

We receive a promotion package from a road show and I must say, its really worth it! Our embankment was simple, smooth and fast. When we enter the ship, we have to take a photo to identify ourselves. Next, we have to take a lift to our ... Read more

I don't normally take time out to write reviews, but I feel I owe Costa one. =) After all the reviews I had read about Costa Victoria, I was expecting the worst, but hoping for the best. We boarded Costa Victoria at the Shanghai port ... Read more

Costa has by far the best organization (at least from Europe) of finding you at your origin airport, managing transfers and delivering you to the ship. Once again this proceeded flawlessly on our way from Frankfurt to Singapore. Things ... Read more

Unfortunately we hadn't read any reviews on the ship until after it was booked and paid for, and though we panicked on reading them, we still decided to go with an open mind. On December 23rd we eagerly boarded our much awaited holiday. ... Read more

Thank goodness we did NOT read the reviews of the Costa Classica before setting sailing. Otherwise, we may not have decided to go and could have missed out on a wonderful experience. The itinerary was outstanding - 9 ports of call - and ... Read more
