Even though we were aware that the Costa Classica does not have a good reputation, we had no problem with the ship itself. I didn't like the pool deck and the theater, but since there were hardly any decent shows at the theater it didn't ... Read more

The cruise was not the best we have been on. I give below the plusses and minuses. The cabin was a nice size, bigger than usual, but no tea or coffee facilities, no laundry room, no clothesline in the bathroom, no glasses in the ... Read more

Enjoyed the cruise - our main reason for going was to give the grandkids a taste of Asia. Should have just paid for them to go on the cruise - and we stay home. They hit the arcade on the first night - fantastic arcade for kids. Met up ... Read more

First of all I'm rather disappointed from the mixed reviews others have left about the Classica...We had a ball.. The ship isn't classy by any means, and is awaiting a refurbishment... The staff were unreal. The buffet was ok. There wasn't ... Read more

This Singapore/Malaysia/Thailand Costa cruise was billed as 3-star, but often delivered above that level - particularly in the quality of food and the service levels from staff. The cabin was spacious, the bed comfortable and our porthole ... Read more

We were keen to cruise vietnam but when we researched cruises to this region that matched our 14 year old son's school holidays and were "teenager friendly " we were restricted to one _ the Costa classica. We eagerly booked but when we ... Read more

Once one has been on a few cruises it is easy to be disappointed. We expected to encounter Continental sophistication and flair on the Costa Classica cruise between Singapore and Hong Kong, but instead found ourselves on a very 'average' ... Read more

After having read several bad reviews on the internet about this ship, I tried to not have any high expectations of the Costa Classica. However, even my low expectations were not met. We arrived on 2nd January for a 14 day cruise ... Read more

Our family of four arrived in Singapore the morning of the cruise (after flying in from Perth, Australia). At the Port we were informed by Costa staff that we could embark at 1pm and enjoy some lunch. This was a pleasant surprise as our ... Read more

It seems like some people may be confusing Nov cruise with Oct cruise. Our cruise was from 11/6-11/21--no collision or atrocious weather. The weather was quite nice.  Contrary to some negative reviews, we loved the Southeast Asian ... Read more

Embarkation set the tone for this dire cruise, chaotic, badly organised, with total lack of helpful staff. From the dockside sight of the ship, she appeared tired and shabby, and the interior did nothing to improve that impression- she is ... Read more

Well, we have no-one to blame but ourselves really. After our experience on Costa Classica from Dubai to Singapore in March 2009 (reviewed on this site), we said no more Costa small, older ships. We weakened, however, when we saw the Costa ... Read more

I do not have much more to add to the reviews of this lamentable effort of a cruise. Everything that has been said is doubly true. Costa should never have allowed this cruise to go ahead after it's collision and a number of staff ... Read more

I'll begin by getting the bad stuff out the way. I cruised with NCL last year who definately have the 'wow factor' and in some ways I guess I was expecting the same from Costa however, the fact is the Classica is older, a lot smaller, not ... Read more

This is the worst cruise ship we have ever been on. This so called CRUISE SHIP was nothing more than a CROSS CHANNEL FERRY. From the minute we boarded it was nothing short of a let down. We booked this holiday from the television. The ... Read more

We have cruised on many other cruise lines but this was our first with Costa. We would be unlikely to choose Costa again because we prefer specific "english speaking" ships. The Costa Romantica is showing its age and its origins (probably ... Read more
