We booked this cruise at the last minute and then went on this review forum and found lots of bad comments which of course worried both myself and my wife. We couldn't disagree more with all the negative reviews as this was one of the best ... Read more

Generally a pleasantly designed ship but has many choke points which jam with guests: notably elevators and exit-entry points . Planning and timing of events results in major crowd jams – e.g. when diners and theatre goers must all ... Read more

The absolute worst experience of my life. Took my mam on this cruise to give her a holiday of a life time and possibly her last holiday, due to ill health. Been on four other cruise liners and loved every minute. Waiters and staff were ... Read more

It wasn't what I had heard of and what I had expected. In the pool areas there was no control, and organisation. To go in the spa, you had to wait a long time because the people stayed in there for about an 1 hour, and children would ... Read more

The ship is very big. Getting around took some time but slowly we learned where we were going. Embarkation was a breeze. We each had forgotten we had a bottle of something in both checked bags and carry on which was completely ignored. ... Read more

I have been on several cruises, from multiple companies and this is by far the worst one I have ever been on. We disembarked a day early and thankfully we did because 6 days was long enough! The ship isn't that nice, though it's relatively ... Read more

We had a beautiful cabin- but with finger breaking hooks to open drawers.The ship is 2 years old- ample time for management to correct this simple-to-fix defect. The cuisine was bad, even by Costa standards. We had table 385 in the ... Read more

Firstly the ship is huge and it took nearly a week to navigate our way around it.There were a lot of good things ans some not so good. With size you get variety but you also get crowds, there were certain times of the day particularly ... Read more

The ship, cabin and staff (apart from some waiters in the dining room) were good. There were about 200 teenagers on "school trips" on our cruise, they took over the swimming pools, jacuzzis and were noisy,especially at night ... Read more

I was a little anxious about this cruise, but it was booked by my wife's parents as a present for the family and I had hoped that some of the reviews on this site were wrong. They are not. We had a great time, but not because the boat, or ... Read more

Drill prior to sailing was poorly demonstrated. Everyone stood around at their muster station which was on deck. For those passengers who have never sailed before, there was much confusion as to how to put their life jackets on, etc. ... Read more

When cruising with Costa Americans need to accept that they will be a minority on the ship. You will here many languages spoken, however the staff all have English as their common tongue. The embarkation in Savona was very smooth and well ... Read more
