Our cruise was chosen for the itinerary and we kept reminding ourselves of that aim every day spent on board the Allegra. First impressions count and we are not first time cruisers but were still disappointed with our Costa experience. ... Read more

Chose this trip because of the itinerary - great places to visit in the Far East. We chose an inside cabin which was absolutely fine - one of the most comfortable I have had on a cruise. The food was generally good but that is about where ... Read more

The reviews on the web especially from subscribers to this site do not give potential cruisers on Costa Allegra a lot of confidence. How can I explain to those doubters that, "in life you get what you pay for" We chose the itinerary first ... Read more
