Cruise price was attractive, probably in collaboration with one of the larger travel agency in Hong Kong. However, the quality of the cruise was poor. Food: not much selection even the salad section, dressing unlike what you normally ... Read more

If you are looking for upper class society experience, this ship is not for you. Costa Victoria is a very laid back, relax ship. Overall, this is a ship without big wow factor like rock climbing or ice skating rink. It is quite an old ... Read more

Pros about Costa Victoria: 1) It has very nice noodle soup every night from 10pm - 2am as well as pool deck on sea days afternoon. 2) welcome drinks on the day of boarding and after returning ship from Penang. 3) Very nice live ... Read more

This cruise was booked to celebrate my husband's big birthday and was a once in a lifetime event for us. We picked it mainly because the advertising stated we would be visiting the orangutangs in Borneo but it just happened to be part of ... Read more

I travelled with Costa and it was my first cruise experience. It was a short getaway with my JC friends as we wanted to get away from work for awhile before the year starts. As this was my cruise expedition, I didn’t know what to ... Read more

I travelled with Costa Cruise recently and it was awesome! My family and I decided to try after numerous trips with other cruises – been on star cruises way too many times. There was a huge variety of food and the staff was really ... Read more

The first cruising trip with my boyfriend. We were so excited for it. This was something we longed for a very long time. A 6D5N trip, from Shanghai to Nagasaki and Kobe is our choice. We booked for a balcony cabin because of the limited ... Read more

I have to say, the Costa cruise line was totally failure. I spent more than $1700+ USD for my trip (per person), and the following are the services I received. First, the cruise itself is a 18 years old ship and had many places seems ... Read more

We took this 21 day cruise on Costa Victoria which departed from Singapore on 19 December 2013. I apologise in advance for the length of this review...it reads like war and peace. However I thought it was important to "highlight" just how ... Read more

We have sailed on Costa before and promised that we would not do so again, but the dates and the length of the cruise and the ports to be visited made us get excited again, and it was a different ship this time, so we thought, why not? ... Read more

Well, what a disappointment. Whilst we understood that Costa is by no means a premium cruise line, we did not expect SUCH a poor level of service and facilities. Apparently the ship just underwent a multi-million Dollar refurbishment, ... Read more

Well where do I start. In all my years of cruising, this cruise was the worst and what the cruise industry has built up over time was ruined by Costa. As Carnival owns Costa and many other, the Costa name is a liability to the Carnival ... Read more
