Pre-cruise started off to a weird start - no prompting from Costa to fill out anything for the cruise, no communications at all. Found their web site to be very cumbersome and non-informative. We experienced Quick embarking (showed ... Read more

Our previous cruise with Costa, on a Neo ship was extremely disappointing, but we tried it again on the Costa Pacifica. This time Costa was all what we expected and even more. All the complaints we had on the previous cruise with the Costa ... Read more

Cruise ticket stated 'Embarkation from 13.00; sailing 15.00', arrived at Savona at 12.55, given slot '20' and told to wait until number was called. By 15.00, they were dealing with batch 7! The terminal was loading two ships, about 6000 ... Read more

The Costa web page lacks of enough information. We did not know anything about our dinner and if water was included or not. We got that information the first day we got to the ship because we went to the front desk and ask. Our room was ... Read more

Costa Cruises is really awfull. I have never experienced such a bad taste, bad service, bad food, bad acomodations and very bad common areas. I have done a lot of cruises including the "high end" like Silversea but also the "standard" ones ... Read more

We saw 9 countries in ten days and the sites were fabulous! The price for the 4 of us including taxes and port fees was $2170. The ship was clean and heavily decorated in a tacky manner. This is our 3rd cruise with Costa so we knew what we ... Read more
