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 second Costa cruise, our previous was on the Costa Concordia a few weeks before she sank and we found the Concordia much more glamorous and classy. We boarded in Malta and that was very efficient. We were also impressed with ... Read more

Just returned from our mediteranean cruise ( November 2014) The Costa Favolosa lived up to our expectations with high standards of service and cleanliness. The buffet service for breakfast and lunch is busy, obviously, but the restaurant ... 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

1. Food and services: the food in general in the dining room and buffet was good. However at lunch time and sometimes during breakfast it was very difficult to be seated as it was packed. After a certain time (like 7-8pm) the water ... Read more

First cruise and we plumped for Costa due to kids price and itinerary around the Med. Embarkation in Barcelona was easy and quick, started at 15:30 and we were in the cabin by 15:45 with cases already delivered. Exterior cabin was very ... 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

Reading previous reviews confirms that our terrible experience was not an isolated occur acne. Firstly, the English speaking hostess was totally useless and did not care about the passengers, just about promoting tours and what she thought ... Read more

I just read the review from april 30 2014, and I think we were on the same cruise. And I could not agree more. This cruise was not a nice experience. The ship was too crowded, lots of kids running around and occupying all swimmingpools. ... Read more

We travelled for 7 days starting on the 15 October. We chose the ship because of the itinerary, and the ports were all interesting. The ship seemed to be very crowded most of the time even though the weather was fine enough for the ... Read more

Check in started at 1pm. Embarkation was quick here in Malta since there was a group of about a hundred staring their cruise. They don’t give you your cruise cards, but you find everything on the bed once you go to your cabin. No ... Read more

Well, our friend had never cruised, and asked if we'd help her out. So, for ease of arrangements, we flew independently from Liverpool to Barcelona with Easyjet. We have been to Barca before, so knew the transfers were easy enough. A 7am ... Read more

We booked this cruise because the price during the easter holidays was very favourable. We had read the reviews online before going and were rather concerned about a few things. Overall we had a great time and would book with Costa again. ... Read more

Excited to be back in Venice and ready for our 7 night cruise, we caught the People Mover to the Dock. Not well signed but we found where to take our luggage (and were given No. 18 for embarkation) and then around the corner to the ... Read more

Compared to Royal Caribbean: it looks like there is less personnel per passenger, personnel at Costa looking harried and less friendly. 7206 Handicapped accessible. Food: buffet is bad, and pizza is awful. Enjoyed the (rare) olives ... Read more

Although not as stylish as Celebrity or Royal Caribbean, this cruise did pleasantly surprise us. Spacious public areas (a bit decorated over the top, but you get used to it), nice furniture, enough food varieties to choose from. Main ... Read more
