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

Before leaving on this cruise, I read some reviews on cruise critic and was a bit concerned, but the itinerary of this trip was too appealing. Now, I am wondering what people's expectations were? I found the staff extremely helpful, ... Read more

Our Baltic/Norway cruise was July 5-19. Luminosa is a beautiful newer ship and our room was very nice. Costa still has a way to go to get me back. - Charging for water at dinner was unbelievable. - Same for yoga and spinning sessions ... Read more

We saw 9 countries in ten days and the sites were fabulous! The price for the 4 of us including taxes and port fees was $2170. The ship was clean and heavily decorated in a tacky manner. This is our 3rd cruise with Costa so we knew what we ... Read more

As a frequent and enthusiastic Costa client I was extremely disappointed this time. What was meant to be a romantic getaway turned into a nightmare. Where do I begin.... Well for a start, I'd like to point put that the itinerary was ... Read more

I was disappointed in many aspects but perhaps my expectations were off for a European line. I haven't cruised that much, I went for the scenery (Fjords) and convenience of a cruise. I was taken aback by how much Costa pushed the bars and ... Read more

This was my and my girlfriend's first sea cruise and we chose it as a relaxed way of seeing western Norway and also because it departed from a port relatively close to our home city. The cruise went from Amsterdam all the way up to ... Read more

As first time cruisers we had a lot of questions. Cruise critic was very helpful for many of them. Neo romantica is a really beautiful ship and the staff are superb. The Baltic Northern Capitals are really beautiful and there are plenty of ... Read more

We did not experience the negative things that other reviewers had written about. The check-in was efficient, but it did take several hours, and our luggage did not arrive at our cabin until almost dinnertime - a relatively minor ... Read more

So we just got back from a sailing on the Costa Luminosa. Basically, we had a great time despite the ship. The ship is generally attractive and the crew helpful, but the management on the ship is awful. They are very disorganized. ... Read more

Why overall poor service? Easy! The crew don't get any time off during their contracts apart from the odd half day when they don't work and as 'service charge' gets automatically added to your bill, there is no insentive for the crew ... Read more

I looked forward to this cruise for a very long time - and now it is over since a few months! But it was a very good cruise experience. The Costa Pacifica is in a well condition, also the staff was neat - for example at the guest ... Read more

The ship was great. The accommodation, food, service and entertainment was very good. On the down side: 1. To get from one end of the ship to the other you had to pass smokers areas no matter which way you went. We found this most ... Read more
