The Costa Atlantica has recently started operating out of Shanghai, targeting the Chinese market. One of my wife's friends had booked up to go on the ship and so my wife decided that we would go too. The cruise was from Shanghai to Korea's ...
Those unlucky enough not to have priority waited in a queue for up to four hours to board the ship.
3.5 hours after boarding one of my two suitcases showed up. I eventually found the other one on the wrong deck.
Went on this cruise in May 2013. Short one along the Straits of Malacca with stops at Malacca and Penang. Boarding and final disembarkation took really long time, over two hours, which was a bit of an issue for my mum. Ship facilities on ...
My husband and I decided on this trip as the itinerary was right up our street - visiting all the places we have on our bucket list. We booked 10 months previously and only then were there two inside cabins left. We thought long and hard ...
Had a lovely time on the Costa Atlantica, made all the better by the staff. Boarded in Heraklion at 13:30, had no queues at all, entered terminal and on board within 30 minutes. Noticed long queues late though.
Cabins were 6 level, ...
Just back from the Costa Atlantica cruise.We got such a good deal with the cruise that we upgraded to the All Inclusive, which was well worth the money. Most drinks are covered unless you like really special whiskeys or brandies, gins etc. ...
Recently we travelled to Europe for the first time. As new retirees, and having disposed of children, we decided to travel for a month encompassing a cruise around the Greek Islands and then onto a European River Cruise, which I will rave ...

Good value for money ...
The overall experience on Costa Atlantica was poor. Most of the crew were not very friendly with exception of Room Steward, some bar staff and Wait staff at dinner. I thought that cruise line took advantage of exchange rate as all items ...
We were a group of six, having chosen this cruise because of the itinerary. Having read some of the reviews online our expectations of the cruise were really great low. Consequently we were pleasantly surprised and really did wonder what ...
My wife and I have been on 30+ cruises and this ranks tops in our book.
The good: Very smooth ship, never felt any movement at all. Best ballroom dancing at sea, excellent non stop ballroom music from 5:30pm - 1am on Deck 2 Madam ...
I sailed from Miami on February 27th for 10 nights in the Western Caribbean on COSTA Atlantica. Let me start with the few good things about the ship. First, its a beautiful boat especially the 10 deck tall main lobby...very impressive. ...
We were on Costa Atlantica from February 17th to 27th, 2012
If you were thinking about cruising with them, I hope to help you with your choice.
If you already booked with them, I wish you have better service than we did.
Too many ...
Embarkation: We were three hours late for embarkation, due to mechanical failure on one of our flights. We called the emergency number located in our cruise documents and to our suprise were told not to worry, ship is also delayed and wont ...
This ship when brand new must have been spectacular, too bad they don't seem to be able to keep it clean. Dirty windows, dirty carpet, dirty drapes, furniture, Sticky tables to eat or just read or play games on. But it had some good ...
For many years my wife and I have read Crusie Critic and Trip Advisor finding them helpful tools when planning a getaway. This is the first time we felt the need to post a critic to try and guide others.
On January 28, 2012 we ...
We cruised with our sons (1,2 and 6) and some friends and their kids. We were about 10 adults and 7 kids and had a good time, but it could have been better. The service was between mean and very bad. We booked this cruise about 9 months ...
I am an avid cruiser and I had sailed on virtually all major cruse lines including Costa before I took my Dec29-Jan8 Caribbean cruise on Costa Atlantica.
The good: like all other cruise lines, Costa follows its itinerary, the ...

We are a Belgian couple who travelled with another Belgian couple from Copenhagen to Sint-Petersburg on the Costa Atlantica.
We had a very nice holiday.
Our inside cabin (without view) was comfortable and large with many space to ...
Costa was just as beautiful as most reviews stated. I didn't find the cabins to be as large as the impression was given. Nothing special there except lots of storage space for those who unpack. Hairdryer in the room kept malfunctioning, ...
I have never done a Cruise Review but I feel that I must on this occasion, after reading a couple of negative entries about this cruise, that departed March 25th 2011, from Miami, Florida.
