I chose this cruise thanks to its stops in many Mediterranean islands. Apparently some stops could be avoided as there was nothing interesting to do there. The ship is renovated with a modest but comfortable look. and so are the ... Read more

We have cruised with Costa before and had enjoyable trips, however not this one! In a nutshell they appear to be cruising with economy. We boarded at Genoa after a coach transfer from Milan - all good. We were in cabin 4082 which smelt ... Read more

I had seen the Costa Classica in Singapore harbour about a decade ago, she looks like a cruiseship should look. Last year I travelled on her 'Neo' stable-mate, the Costa Neo-Riviera twice (around the Gulf and central Med), and I love that ... Read more

The itinerary was interesting and the price was reasonable so I decided at the last minute to go on this cruise with my friends who booked long before I did. I knew Costa do not have the best ships so I did not expect the best. I ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise. We were in cabin 6001, and were a bit worried when we read some of the reviews on here after we'd booked it. But no real problems. There is some noise from the anchors being let out, but that's over in a few ... Read more

Disappointing waste of hard earned savings. Absolutely NO entertainment unless you enjoy passengers being called up and derided. No films. English speaking guests avoided. Italian staff mostly rude and unhelpful not to mention the ... 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

My first gripe was that Costa never provided any information on times or venue to embark in Trieste, Italy. There was no boarding pass provided or facility on the website to print one either. On boarding, I asked the customer service ... Read more

It is nice to cruise on a medium size ship that "only" accommodates about 1,600 passengers instead of the 3,500+ on the new mega ships. We were looking forward to this cruise and the ports. We embarked at Trieste (near Venice) and took a 7 ... Read more
