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

Where do I start? After reading many terrible reviews of the Costa Serena after I had booked this cruise I should've learnt my lesson & cancelled it! Several times I tried to contact Costa by email prior to departing with some ... Read more

We have never been disappointed to this level in over 30 years of cruising. Starting with the food: First there were no ice tea or lemonade at the meal, which was a first for us and the 3 other couples with our group. Had to ask for ice, ... 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

The destinations were great, the crew were not overly friendly or accomodating, the excursion that we went on was good. The other passengers on the ship were not very courteous especially in lines. The dress code is casual, but some ... Read more

We did the 7 Beaches cruises, around the Greek Islands, and a visit to Izmir in Turkey. Fabulous apart from a couple of hitches getting ashore due to windy weather - only to be expected. The Greek Islands never disappoint apart from Samos, ... Read more
