I have read bad reviews about COSTA, but the destinations looked very appealing so I took my chances. Well, I should have listened to those reviews because other than the great port of calls, reasonable price of the cruise and the very ... Read more

As a pensioners we looked for a good value for money cruise and couldn't believe the price we got it for, very reasonable plus we had three days in Venice prior to cruising. We read lots of reviews which were not very favourable but ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was extremely good valve for money. We secured it through Groupon and flew from Gatwick to Nice. Transfers smooth and on arriving at the ship our bags were whisked away and placed outside our cabin, let the fun ... Read more

Beware this is a rip off! We were looking so forward to our cruise. The embarkation went smoothly and the staff were fine. The ship is very Bolliwood and over the top, with glitz and glamour everywhere. Our cabin was adequate and ... Read more

We choose this cruise because we wanted to see a bit of France and the fact that it was from Malta to Malta our country. it was rather a late booking so we had to be content with the dates available. The cheaper price made it more ... Read more

We mainly chose this cruise because it took us from Northern Europe to the Mediterranean. We were very sceptical of cruising with Costa because of the reviews on this site. However the experience couldn't have been better. Costa ... Read more

I was interested in doing the islands of the Western Mediterranean and after a fair amount of research the Costa Fascinosa had just what I wanted. There were any amount of queries from friends and family...why Costa? My answer was ... Read more

Most of the highly critical reviews are unfair. Do your homework - this is an Italian line catering primarily to Europeans. If "foreigners" and hearing other languages upset you then stay home and go to Epcot instead. All crew ... Read more

This is the newest ship in Costa's fleet and its big. The design is modern, rather than classic, but tastefully done. Cabins and balconies are slightly larger than average and there is plentiful public area seating when the weather is wet. ... Read more
