This is an 8 day cruise with three ( 2 consecutive ) sea days.
I don't know why the crew insisted on keeping the lido pool roof closed during all sea days (despite of sunshine and 27oC) creating an awful combination of food smell + ...
During the dates of 20-28 January 2012, I had a perfect experience aboard the Carnival Dream, for a 7-day Western Caribbean Cruise. Everything was spot-on, to include: dining, public rooms, the cabin, entertainment, value for money, and ...
Costa Pacifica 9th Oct 16. Savona, Marseille, Ajaccio, Cagliari, La Valletta, Rome, Savona.
Some nice ports on this short cruise even we ventured ashore in two of them decent weather made my slow walking enjoyable.
After booking this cruise, I started reading the reviews posted by Cruise Critic and I started worrying I may have made a mistake. 53% say they loved it I thought was low. So we were forewarned of possible issues with the ship. The ...
We choose this cruise because we wanted to see a bit of France and the fact that it was from Malta to Malta our country. it was rather a late booking so we had to be content with the dates available. The cheaper price made it more ...
We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed every port of call, stunning scenery combined with history and beautiful buildings. The Costa Pacifica was a lovely ship with lots to offer. We dined in the ...
Chose this cruise because it fit well within a month long european trip, and got a good rate ($500 pp). Always wanted to visit Norway, so what the heck.
Cruise leaves from Steinwarder dock, which is the hardest one to get to. Some ...
We chose this voyage because the timing allowed us to complete an earlier Princess cruise; spend a week driving the northern lake region of Italy; pick up this cruise, and then put us in position to cruise back to the States. (We were ...
We are regular Costa cruisers in our mid 50's. The itinerary appealed to us. We started in Savona and disembarked in Hamburg.
8/5/16(Sunday) Stansted to Milan. Transfer to Savona and embark.
9/5/16: (Monday) Marseille. 08h00-13h00.
Just returned from a cruise. This time with Costa, the Costa Pacifica. My wife and I are cruising enthusiasts. We have travelled on several cruising lines. Being both retired,we prefare to travel in the off season quiet months.
We took our first Costa cruise on March 2, 2016 on the Pacifica - we chose it partly because of the itinerary as it was repositioning from Brazil to Italy, and also because the price was very reasonable.
- ship is lovely with ...
We chose this cruise because we had just spent 8 days cruising the amazon river, we thought this would be an ideal way to return home without the long flight, My husband and I have cruised with a number of cruise companies including Costa ...
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 ...
I'm sorry to have to write this and perhaps add to Costas problems, however I believe people should be able to make an informed decision. We went on this cruise with no prior views on the changes Costa has made in recent months. On the ...
1. Tour Price was significantly discounted
2. Excellent Itinerary
3. Overall Service & Cleanliness were good
4. We liked the dance lessons
1) Embarkation was unusually slow, ...
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 ...
Flew to Nice from Liverpool to pick up pre arranged transport to Savona. No rep available and had to find our own way to find many people with Costa luggage tags all waiting for coaches. Eventually found a rep who told us we were on number ...
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 ...
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 ...
This was a first time cruise for myself and my family. I was a it dubious of cruising and quite anxious to be truthful. We did encounter a problem when we first went to the airport to check-in as we had no allocation of bags and we had to ...
I traveled with my wife and 2 children (aged 9 and 12) to Kiel to for our cruise on board the Costa Pacifica from August 5 to 16. The embarkation process took a couple of hours. We boarded the ship and found our way to our inside cabin. ...
Queues, queues and more queues: for food, for free bus tickets ( why were they not included with the daily activity sheet for each cabin ?)to get on the ship, to get off the ship, a total lack of organisation.
No Emergency drill ( I ...
Had wonderful cruise from Buenos Aires to Savona, Italy.we are very seasoned cruisers and after reading some reviews a little worried no need to be, lovely clean ship inside and out! Food ranged from good to excellent,starters could have ...
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 ...
We had no problems at all, everything worked as planned
After reading previous reviews like many we had worries, but no one should be put off and we had a wonderful experience,
What I would say that being an Italian Ship ...
