We cruised on this ship in December 2015. The ship itself was very clean and well maintained if somewhat flamboyant in the decor, still everyone's taste is different. However if you are English speaking beware. The announcements on ... Read more

Actually this was only a 2-dot cruise. But seen to the discounted price we, and most others, paid, it was a 5-dotter. In my eyes the ship did not look nice, neither outside, nor inside. This 1:st november-week was warm and sunny each ... Read more

If you respect yourselves, do not even think of going on the Costa Favolosa (and by extension, on any Costa ship). We are experienced cruisers, this was our 12th cruise with various lines. The balcony cabins are spacious, but cleaning the ... Read more

We had great food, great entertainment. We were more than happy with our cabin, and our dinner waiter. However, the thing that spoilt this cruise was lack of water. They wanted us to pay for every drop we drank. I found some waiters ... Read more

The absolute worst experience of my life. Took my mam on this cruise to give her a holiday of a life time and possibly her last holiday, due to ill health. Been on four other cruise liners and loved every minute. Waiters and staff were ... Read more

The Costa web page lacks of enough information. We did not know anything about our dinner and if water was included or not. We got that information the first day we got to the ship because we went to the front desk and ask. Our room was ... Read more

Having read previous reviews of the Costa Fortuna and the Norwegian fjords cruise we had doubts and low expectations of the ship and the itinerary. However, we were very happy that everything was far beyond our expectations. We had ... Read more

The thing to remember is that this is an Italian ship. Although it departed from Miami, it is an Italian ship. Most the passengers were Italian followed by French and Spanish with the number of Americans far behind. Everything was in five ... Read more

Before our cruise I had read a lot of negative feedback about Costa Luminosa. Well, I don't know why did they get that all because I think they really didn't deserve it. On the contrary: all the staff was nice and polite, smiling, helpful. ... Read more
