OK - so you've read all the reports about how bad Costa Classica is and has been. Well we booked our trip before we read any reviews and then panicked when we started to read the bad reviews. Now that we have returned from a 2 week ... Read more

Costa has by far the best organization (at least from Europe) of finding you at your origin airport, managing transfers and delivering you to the ship. Once again this proceeded flawlessly on our way from Frankfurt to Singapore. Things ... Read more

The cabin was roomy and no problems. The cabin steward Lu was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her. The excursion were quite pricey and a lot of wasted time that could have been utilised better. Sanya Island off China was a ... Read more

As a yearly cruiser and believer that the best bang in the travel industry for your dollar is spent on a cruise, I regretfully have to say that Costa is not on my list of companies to travel with ever again. While I would say the ship ... Read more

My husband and I are seasoned cruises, however this was our first experience with Costa on the Costa Classica and it will definitely be our last. In comparison to other cruise lines this cruise did not measure up in terms of service, food ... Read more

Unfortunately we hadn't read any reviews on the ship until after it was booked and paid for, and though we panicked on reading them, we still decided to go with an open mind. On December 23rd we eagerly boarded our much awaited holiday. ... Read more

Thank goodness we did NOT read the reviews of the Costa Classica before setting sailing. Otherwise, we may not have decided to go and could have missed out on a wonderful experience. The itinerary was outstanding - 9 ports of call - and ... Read more

We were apprehensive about Costa after reading some of the reviews but decided to book and decide for ourselves. We found that lots of the reviews we had read had made valid points. We were disappointed to find when we arrived at the ... Read more

Even though we were aware that the Costa Classica does not have a good reputation, we had no problem with the ship itself. I didn't like the pool deck and the theater, but since there were hardly any decent shows at the theater it didn't ... Read more

The cruise was not the best we have been on. I give below the plusses and minuses. The cabin was a nice size, bigger than usual, but no tea or coffee facilities, no laundry room, no clothesline in the bathroom, no glasses in the ... Read more

Enjoyed the cruise - our main reason for going was to give the grandkids a taste of Asia. Should have just paid for them to go on the cruise - and we stay home. They hit the arcade on the first night - fantastic arcade for kids. Met up ... Read more

First of all I'm rather disappointed from the mixed reviews others have left about the Classica...We had a ball.. The ship isn't classy by any means, and is awaiting a refurbishment... The staff were unreal. The buffet was ok. There wasn't ... Read more

This Singapore/Malaysia/Thailand Costa cruise was billed as 3-star, but often delivered above that level - particularly in the quality of food and the service levels from staff. The cabin was spacious, the bed comfortable and our porthole ... Read more

After having read several bad reviews on the internet about this ship, I tried to not have any high expectations of the Costa Classica. However, even my low expectations were not met. We arrived on 2nd January for a 14 day cruise ... Read more
