Crowded is the first word that comes to mind when I think of the cruise I just took on the Costa Fortuna. In my opinion, the distribution of passengers is not well organized. Most of the guests end up eating meals in the same ... Read more

As a frequent and enthusiastic Costa client I was extremely disappointed this time. What was meant to be a romantic getaway turned into a nightmare. Where do I begin.... Well for a start, I'd like to point put that the itinerary was ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Costa (did the Med in 2009) and apart from the food couldn't find a lot wrong with it then. Unfortunately, although the food has improved, they seem to have taken a backward step overall.Once again we flew ... Read more

1.I realize that these large ships have a difficult time logistically in loading all the passengers, however it took a very long time and this was probably exacerbated by the fact they arrived at the terminal about two hours late. 2. Our ... Read more

We booked this cruise last minute . Embarkation was a bit hit an miss as our flight had been delayed and as a consequence we got to the port 3 hours later than expected so we didn't get on board until 3.45pm. Once on board we went straight ... Read more

I had high expectations with Costa cruise lines and was a little disappointed. Costa is a luxury cruise lines with the Europeans, not Americans. It doesn't compare to Celebrity or Royal Caribbean. The ship was VERY warm...all temperatures ... Read more

Just returned from Eastern Med Cruise from Venice. Two hours waiting in embarkation hall, then an unceremonious departure, despite leaving beautiful Venice. Our fellow passengers need a lesson in courtesy on board, i.e. allowing people ... Read more
