I'll start with a variation on the traditional Costa opening... We've been on three previous cruises (Princess, NCL, Celebrity) so were a little concerned by some of the reviews of Costa. However, given the timing and the itinerary we ... Read more

This was our first tie taking a cruise aboard Costa, although we're not new to cruising. This was my tenth cruise having sailed with NCL, RCC Princess and Cunard previously. We chose this short 5 night cruise as it fell on the dates we ... Read more

The Costa Pacifica is a beautiful ship - clean, nicely decorated, big and well appointed staterooms and suites. When we cruised, the ship had just gotten out of dry-dock a few weeks before and the hull was stark white and really amazingly ... Read more

As seasoned cruisers who have travelled extensively on Princess, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean we thought we would take up the superb offer on a Costa Cruise, as an experiment and to compare the cruise lines. We were very pleasantly ... Read more

WE are an older couple and have cruised several times before. This was a quick, cheap winter holiday and our expectation were not high. We live near Barcelona, so just needed a quick rail journey to Barcelona Sants and a 20 euro taxi to ... Read more

Bullied into paying 15% 'service charge', for drinks ; is too much, considering you are charged 48.00 euros each for 'service charge' with the final invoice. This is on top of extortionate prices for drinks - 20.00 euros for a white table ... Read more

My friend and I (21 & 25 male) decided that for spring break we would book a cruise. We found Costa to be the most economic value so we booked it without really reading into it too much. Once I actually started reading reviews I got a ... Read more

Our main objective was to see certain ports/sites & this ship did that. We looked @ Costa as a floating hotel. For this reason we were satisfied. If I were choosing for just a 'cruise experience' I'd try another line/ship. Embark, ... Read more

We booked very much last minute, and didn't pay a lot, so didn't expect much...how wrong we were!The connections from the airport to the ship was easy, embarkation stress-free, and on arrival in our cabin, we were pleased with the space ... Read more

My partner and I have just returned from a Western Med cruise on the Costa Pacifica. In Costa`s defence, it was a reasonably priced cruise, but we now know why...we suspect that this is the primary tool used to entice business. We have ... Read more

I was a little hesitant to take this cruise due to many negative reviews. I found that many of those were due to the fact that the ship is filled with mostly foreigners. This is true. I personally do not travel to Europe to be with ... Read more

When we saw the ad for a 5 night cruise for less than �£100, in a premium balcony cabin to boot, we thought it would be extremely rude not to......and so we booked for the Costa Pacifica short Med cruise. The prospect of ... Read more

We selected this cruise for its itinerary and pricing. After reading other reviews we were well prepared for what to expect from the ship and crew. The cruise met our expectations but certainly wouldn't appeal to everyone's tastes. We ... Read more

Why overall poor service? Easy! The crew don't get any time off during their contracts apart from the odd half day when they don't work and as 'service charge' gets automatically added to your bill, there is no insentive for the crew ... Read more
