I chose this cruise because of the many places we would stop, and it was the best decision I ever made! The service was exceptional, especially from Santanu, my waiter, and Ronal, my butler! My favorite hangout was on the 9th deck, at the ...
Enjoyed our cruise, we stayed on board for back to back for 20 days. The true facts. If you are Canadian or American they do write USA water on your ship card, so you can get water or sparkling water at dinner, at no charge. But water is ...
My mother and I (20-year-old daughter) were traveling for the first time on a cruise - but with that said we have been traveling around the world since I was born; which of course mean that we have seen and experienced quite a lot and ...
The positive is embarkation was easy...probably too easy. Even though we didn't have all documents to board, got through without any hassles. Nice to leave at 11pm vs 5pm, so more time. First the good....was upgraded from inside to a ...
Got an excellent price for the three of us in a balcony stateroom, so had to give it a go. Always wanted to try Costa so this seemed like a good opportunity.
Our tickets said borading would commence around 1PM so we arrived at the pier ...
Front desk personnel were very rude and not helpful at all. I had preordered the drink package and they had no record of it and when I showed them the voucher with the packages they still argued with me saying come back tomorrow. It took ...
This cruise took us to Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and Grand Cayman. There was no description above that fit it perfectly. The cabin was spacious and allowed us to put all our things away and store the luggage under the bed. The beds were ...
This was my fourth crossing and my 20th cruise. My first time with Costa Cruise.
Pros: Well laid out ship. Entertainment around the ship was excellent. The entertainment staff wanted you to have fun. They worked very hard. Drinks ...
After deciding on a five day stay in Rome, we chose Costa Deliziosa due to the return route, and time of year. The boarding process was routine, however, the rest of the trip went down hill from there. For the lifeboat drill, we were told ...
I am sitting on my balcony in Cerrife, Spain on the Costa Delioza.
The ship is beautiful!
The ports are amazing!
The Service is AWFUL.
The Staff is Arrogant and Indifferent.
The food is NOT EDIBLE! My dog eats better.
Just off the Costa Deliziosa 24 day transatlantic from Venice (Trieste) to Port Everglades.
Problems with embarkation: Arrived at the port from our Venice hotel via private water taxi. Ship was nowhere in sight! Was greeted by port ...
This cruise was spotted by my other half and was arranged by an agent who did a superb job and as the holiday included 2 days in Venice before sailing they arranged a great hotel (Hilton Garden, Mestre) and unbelievably good transfers from ...
it suited the destinations to Santorini BARI, mykonos , dubrovnick curfu..i really enjoyed the entertainment, the dancing troupe from HUNGARY were fantastic, the pool dancing and entertainment was great. daily buffet was only 7/10 as it ...
We found a last minute offer that was ideal as we live fairly close to Venice
To get to Venice we travelled in an Austrian Rail bus that dropped us at the port 3 hours later
We checked our bags and walked to Venice for a short visit
Most of the highly critical reviews are unfair. Do your homework - this is an Italian line catering primarily to Europeans. If "foreigners" and hearing other languages upset you then stay home and go to Epcot instead. All crew ...
We've been on more than 25 cruises from Carnival to Cunard. It's always been a great experience. I booked with Costa, because I had heard they have large dance floors. It was beautiful: the floor, the music, the length of time the music ...
We booked our trip on the ship a year in advance, the ship had not been to this port in the last four years. This ship is made for Italians speaking people only, if you do not speak that language then do not book a trip with them. You only ...
This ship is one of the largest of Costa Cruises.
The checkin was very fast and efficient. Once we got on the ship, we realized how spectacular it was.
As it was a special cruise New Year, it was almost maximum capacity, and still ...
This cruise was the worst cruise i have ever been on for various reasons. I will first start by saying the only two positives which were the Ship which was fairly new and in good shape and the overall staff (they work really hard/do the ...
First I want to say the room with a balcony was great and roomy. The workers on board work very hard and long hours. Now the bad, This was the most unusual cruise ship that we have been on. Did not know the ship would be mainly Italians, ...
I like to start off with good things to say, the bread, pastries, deserts, our table waiters and cabin steward and dance lessons were all good. Outside of that the experience on the ship was the worst.
This was our 16th cruise and 9th ...
Room steward was excellent but overworked, on other ships we never saw a room steward working every night at ten pm.
The waiters were overworked but excellent
The theater shows were consistently very good. ...
i would like to start with we have done 3 cruises before all pand o first time with costa will be last. it was mine and my husbands honeymoon, the ship was beautiful clean and tidy, the cabin we were in 6234 was noisy couldnt sleep we ...
We had booked a classic without view and were amazed when 3 weeks before sailing we got our cabin assignment - upgrade to a mini suite. The cabin was comfortable and clean and was our oasis of calm helped by a very efficient stewardess. ...
Wow fantastic, Fabulous food, brilliant entertainment, stunning dancers, well looked after ship and great service who could ask for more!
We embarked from Venice, all the staff were friendly and efficient. When we entered, wow it ...
