When travel with Costa you are treated like cattle that is there only for them to milk money out of you without showing you any respect. What about informing you att 22 in the evening that you must leave the cabin att 8 in the morning ... Read more

We have cruised with several shipping companies. Costa is without competition the worst we cruised with so our recommendation is do not throw away your money on this company and its ships. The food on the ship was really lousy and ... Read more

In an effort to make this fair, I'm going to provide both the positives and the negatives...My last experience with Costa, almost 10 years ago was an unequivocal success. But this experience was incomparable, failing in almost every ... Read more

This was our first on cruise on Costa (Favolosa) and did not meet our expectation compare to other cruises we had taken in the past. Although, the ship was fairly new (4 years), we were disappointed by the lack of customer care, limited ... Read more

If you respect yourselves, do not even think of going on the Costa Favolosa (and by extension, on any Costa ship). We are experienced cruisers, this was our 12th cruise with various lines. The balcony cabins are spacious, but cleaning the ... Read more

To begin with are the positive.... The ship was very clean and beautiful. We had a suite which was absolutely beautiful and perfect. Nicest suite we have ever been in. Our butler and room steward were fabulous and willing to do anything to ... Read more

What a disaster. Essentially trapped on a slow moving, deluxe livestock hauler for 7 days. Whole experience reeked of carefully crafted ripoff at multiple levels. Boring, contrived "activities" I have no interest in. A bad version of ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise. A formal cruise didn't appeal so we opted for the informality of an Italian-basewd trip. The ship itself was fantastic and our balcony cabin spacious and comfortable. We love Italian food so were in heaven ... Read more

Costa really needs to solve the unruly children problem on their ships. This is our 4th costa cruise and it is getting worse - children jumping into the adult pool and whirlpools. " Adults Only" signs need to be posted in different ... Read more
