We took an ...
Positive thing: the cabin area and layout was good.The old style shower curtain was a challenge. After one took a shower the bathroom was like a swimming pool.I felt sorry for the cabin attendants.
The food was a disgrace. The self ...

I've cruised on cheap and expensive ships and enjoyed them all .However, Concordia was to be the exception.

The cabin, apart from its location near entertainment areas, ...
This was the second cruise I have been on with my family. I joined the cruise in Savona where Costa has its own dedicated terminal. The organisation was spot on with friendly and helpful crew throughout the ship. My daughter is disabled ...
In the Costa Cruises letter that came with our tickets from our booking agent, Cruise Club ,they stated that 'Costa's staff are ready to welcome you and anticipate your every wish'. This statement is far from reality.

This was our 2nd cruise this year - our first was with Princess in the Caribbean, with a balcony - and we wanted something not too expensive, which is exactly what we got.

I almost didn't book this cruise due to the reviews I read here but decided to be open minded and give it a shot. I was extremely apprehensive while boarding the ship as I really didn't know what to expect. Let me preempt this review by ...

Before you read further into my review, it should be noted that I am not the typical cruiser:I am a 22 year old American college student. My father booked this cruise for my Spring Break, and we had no idea what to expect. This was suppose ...
Just returned from an 11 day med cruise on the Concordia. I too was a little worried about the reviews, but I have to say I had a fantastic time.It is a beautiful,clean and friendly ship. here is a quick review, hope its helpful.
The ship was clean and that's all the good stuff over with.
Do not go on this type of cruise if you are British as we are simply told "this is an Italian ship and has different cultures..." this is regardless of the problem.
Smoking on the ship is allowed in many public areas, and in the cabins, these public areas are in the centre of the ship on the fifth deck, (with a open space all the way up to the tenth floor) on the starboard side of the ship, next to ...

This was our 11th cruise and 1st on Costa. We specifically picked Costa to cruise on for the cultural experience of cruising on a line where we knew we would be a minority. In contrast to many reviewers this did not turn out to be a ...
Hi there, I was assured by my local travel agent that because costa concordia have single cabins, they cater for people travelling on their own, this is so far from the truth. If you are travelling on your own, you will be treated as a ...
We booked our cruise at the Cruise Show at Olympia direct through Costa Cruises. What attracted us most was the itinerary, going mostly to places we had not visited before. On paper, everything looked fine - but perhaps we should have read ...
