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

We cruised out of Singapore to a few stops around Indonesia over Christmas. Whilst no one hated this cruise - we certainly overly didn't enjoy it either - especially having sailed with much, much better cruise lines. The Costa website is ... Read more

We receive a promotion package from a road show and I must say, its really worth it! Our embankment was simple, smooth and fast. When we enter the ship, we have to take a photo to identify ourselves. Next, we have to take a lift to our ... Read more

Costa's cruise is everything better than the last previous cruise that I had board on. I wasn't keen on the trip due to work reasons, but I am happy that I had been there to experience it all. After left our cabin, we head immediately to ... Read more

I don't normally take time out to write reviews, but I feel I owe Costa one. =) After all the reviews I had read about Costa Victoria, I was expecting the worst, but hoping for the best. We boarded Costa Victoria at the Shanghai port ... Read more

I was not impressed by Costa Cruise Lines. We sailed on the Victoria Nov. 19, 2011. They do not communicate well (with Americans)seemingly by choice. The cruise got off to a bad start in Venice (where we were to board). The port fogged in ... Read more

On our way to Venice, KLM managed to lose our baggage in Amsterdam and it didn't catch us up until 4 days into our one week cruise. Despite this we had a wonderful time thanks mainly to the efforts of the ship's crew who are among the ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth and generally quiet. The area for waiting was a bit hard to find but it was a pleasant enough wait which wasn't very long as we arrived early and had plenty of assistance from friendly Costa staff on the ground. ... Read more

Our expectations were not high as we knew the Victoria was an old ship-we had been on the Indy media launch and knew what a superb vessel she was. We couldn't,t fault Victoria. Our cabin was small but very comfortable and spotless,with a ... Read more

I booked the cruise on Costa because I wanted a European experience for the cruise. I felt that a European cruise line would give me that. Thia was not correct. It didn't seem any different from other cruise lines. Here are my thoughts. ... Read more
