We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed every port of call, stunning scenery combined with history and beautiful buildings. The Costa Pacifica was a lovely ship with lots to offer. We dined in the ... Read more

Our ship departed early the morning after boarding allowing us to explore Stockholm before departure. Embarkation and disembarkation were very well organized and went very smoothly. There was no waiting for check-in. We were on board ... Read more

My Italian sister-in-law who lives in Italy chose the cruise, as she has only ever cruised on Costa and does not realize that there are many better cruise lines from which to choose. Ship: It compares very poorly with MSC, Princess, ... Read more

This was our first Costa cruise and we loved it. My husband and I had been wanting to see Scandinavia and St.Petersburg, so we decided to book this cruise. The ship was lovely and very clean. Things were well marked and it was easy ... Read more

Greetings, fellow cruise lovers, I write a review like this one once in a blue moon, but this time, in view of the "terrible press" this ship has been having here, I felt that I had to. I understand that other cruisers have ... Read more

A last minute booking, but having been on Costa ships previously I had a good idea of what to expect. I liked the fact that there were only 13 English passengers on board and lots of interesting people to meet from around the world. The ... Read more

Costa cruises are only worth considering if you can buy one really cheaply and forget any notion that you'll get good service and be treated like a guest. On the positive side the dinner service and food was quite reasonable, unfortunately ... Read more

This was a first time cruise for myself and my family. I was a it dubious of cruising and quite anxious to be truthful. We did encounter a problem when we first went to the airport to check-in as we had no allocation of bags and we had to ... Read more

Worst cruise from the start. 90% of the staff were rude. The food on the ship was awful. Couldn't get tea or coffee after 5:30 without paying for it. Second week of cruise had no tea or coffee at all unless paid for it. Our ... Read more

We have not travelled on the Costa line for 3 years and the change was beyond belief. No carafe water was served in the dining room at any time. Bottled water was available, of course, at a cost and including a service charge. Tea and ... Read more

Overall the cruise was good…but nothing special to write about. It has been a while since my last cruise (I have cruised on both Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past) so I knew what to expect but was aware things may be a little ... Read more

We recently took a cruise on the Costa Fortuna in Eastern Europe. We chose the Costa cruise line simply because we had no other choices as we had specific dates we could travel in August. We departed from Copenhaugen and made port at ... Read more

This has been the worst vacation I have ever had although the expectations were really high. We were looking forward to going to the Norwegen fjords, escaping from the hot summer days and enjoying good food. Actually, we were promised ... Read more

We are veteran cruisers but this was our first time to sail on Costa. Costa took the fun out of shipboard life. On our cruise of the Norwegian fiords we were charged three Euros for every one liter of water in the dining room. Free iced ... Read more
