After having read many negative reviews about Costa and the Concordia, we went on our cruise with no real expectations. Were we surprised and pleasantly so! Our balcony cabin was spacious and even on chilly days, we used the balcony and ... Read more

Overall impression: Embarkation and disembarkation chaotic. Passengers left hanging about and having to find their own way to cabins. Decor in public areas - not to my taste, rather bright. Cabins - we had an outside cabin which was ... Read more

Arrived in Rome from Australia on 30/1/09 and stayed near the Railway station in Rome. Then on 31/1/09 travelled by rail to the port very easy to do and cheap. Walked from the Railway station to the port about 4 blocks you can see the boat ... Read more

I decided to put in my 2 cents to help the English speaking people who may want to join the Costa Cruise. Before booking this cruise, I read many horror stories about this Italian cruise line but decided to come anyway to see what it was ... Read more

The Concordia was getting some bad press on the boards so I was beginning to doubt my decision to cruise Costa. My fears were totally unfounded. My husband and I loved our Costa cruise and would definitely sail on the Costa Concordia ... Read more

This Cruise Liner carries a 5 star rating-but I'm afraid it falls woefully short of that tag on many counts. We cruised as a family our ages ranged from 12 to 75-I can only say that every member of our family was disappointed with most ... Read more

Hated this cruise. It was my third cruise and my first in Europe. The boarding went well, the ship was huge and gorgeous and the room was a typical balcony room. Then the cruise started... We left from Civitavecchia on time, but without ... Read more

I was robbed in Athens Greece on April 6 while on shore from the Concordia. I lost several hundred dollars to a pickpocket. Come to think of it, I think I was "pick-pocketed" by Costa for the entire Mediterranean cruise (April 2 - 13). ... Read more

Let's just say our flight over could have been better, had to make connection in Amsterdam and then fly to Rome, board a bus and head to the port (about a one hour bus trip). Once there, you got checked in, which I guess by cruise ... Read more

We were on the Feb 29 sailing on the Concordia sailing to Greece, Turkey and Egypt. Normally we sail the smaller ships of HAL, so not only was this our first Costa cruise--but the largest ship to date. We flew into Rome 2 1/2 days early ... Read more

Entertainment was outstanding most evenings. Dining service was good but not polished. This beautiful ship just does not have the adequate social/public places to accommodate over 3000 guest - passageways were ALWAY crowded, all deck ... Read more
