My wife and I had heard and read very mixed reviews on Costa but this cruise which included flights and a two night stay in Venice at a very affordable price booked through Cruise Nation looked too good to turn down. Even had the ship been ... Read more

So this was the first time we've sailed on Costa so we went in with fairly low expectations (Due to other reviews, the sinking of Concordia and crash of Classica) and we only paid £210 for the week. But they exceeded expectations and ... Read more

Our family had a fantastic time apart from a couple of points. Venice departure point is amazing. Embarkation was quick. The ship is lovely and always being kept clean by the hard working staff. Cabin is quite big. The food got a bit ... Read more

We are a retired couple and chose this cruise because of the ports it called at - bad choice of ship. The embarkation in Venice was awful with everybody pushing and shoving to get on first. The ship was okay but the public toilets on ... Read more

It was for our 40th anniversary. We had never been on a cruise and we absolutely loved it. We had a wonderful suite at the back of the ship with a large deck. It was spectacular. Of course now we had already raised the bar to the top so we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports some of which we had not been to. We sailed from Venice to Trieste, Split, Dubrovnik, Katakalon, Corfu and Kator. We had previously been on 30 cruises, 4 of which were Costa which were prior to ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports, which did not disappoint. However, we encountered many problems on our first time on the Costa line. The cruise was marred by inefficiency, little concern for the passenger, needless standing, waiting, ... Read more

Not recommended for English speaking or US residents. The staff are disrespectful, rude, very unorganized, never on time, staff never smiles, once cruise over never says thanks or acknowledges you. This is an international ship that ... Read more

We wanted an Adriatic cruise with great destinations and ports. This cruise delivered spectacular views and 7 ports of call. The positives included the amazing food and service at the restaurants. The shows were excellent as well with the ... Read more

Travelling independently we flew from Stansted to Trieste airport, which is around an hour from the city. A bus from the airport to the city costs around 6 Euros and leaves half hourly, it delivers you to the bus station which is adjacent ... Read more

I chose this cruise because the timing and itinerary worked best for me to relax on a cruise after a land tour. I have never cruised with Costa before. Though my agent said that it is so-so, I decided to give it a try. After 7 days on ... Read more

We were a little worried due to some of the negative reviews that we read but are very happy that we went - my husband and 7 year old boy. We chose this cruise because we wanted a true European experience and we definitely got it! :) ... Read more

We choose our cruises by itineraries and desired destinations since little time is spent in a room. The Mediterranea food is average to poor. Dinner menus are fine in that they offer more than you would ever cook at home, although seafood ... Read more

Costa is a good provider of fun, food, pleasure. While the quality of the shows has deteriorated and the experience of the Medusa Restaurant was embarrassing, the overall ship is to die for... the service is as usual, excellent. Must ... Read more

Hi, We are an English couple, 60 years of age who have just completed our first Costa cruise. This was on Costa Mediterranea, 7 days down the Dalmatian coast in late April 2016. To put our comments in context I should add that we have ... Read more

First I would like to say I called the Costa Cruise line several times prior to booking to be sure, that as a Orthopedic, Chronic Pain and Cardiac Handicapped person, I could get from where the ship docks to the front of the port. They ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation - Fast and efficient. Gym - Antiquated equipment. Much of it should be replaced. Entertainment - In the theater...I only went to the shows where the ship's singers/dancers performed and the crew talent ... Read more

We cruised on this ship in December 2015. The ship itself was very clean and well maintained if somewhat flamboyant in the decor, still everyone's taste is different. However if you are English speaking beware. The announcements on ... Read more

We boarded the ship at Trieste where l have to say was very disorganised, whether it was due to the hurricane strength winds l don't know. Anyway after boarding we went straight to our cabin which was the largest inside cabin we've had. It ... Read more
