Ship Facts: Costa Marina Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Marina Deck Plans
Costa Marina costs a packet!
Are you a good sailor? If not look elsewhere as the Costa Marina is a rough ride. At least it is in the Atlantic. We spent many a "happy hour" clinging to the bed to avoid being thrown off!! (No exageration).

Do you enjoy a drink? Then learn to go tetotal as drinks on board are at crazy prices (ie 400ml beer Eu 4.50 plus 15% service charge. Whilst we are on the subject of service charge, don't forget you will also pay a compulsory Eu 6 per day each for staff service. Doesn't sound much? Add it up.Over the fortnight it comes to an extra Eu 160!! Oh, and dont think you will bring drink back on board, as eveything is scanned each time you board ship. The staff will return any such contraband on your last day(Not much good then)

The ship also seems to berth further away from the port gates than others. However, fear not, as Costa will relieve you of Eu 6 each for their shuttle bus to the gate (Hmm) Get used to bargaining with foreign Taxi Drivers as Costa's Excursion packages will threaten bankrupcy on your return (Around Eu 100 for the pair of you for each trip)

Would we go again? No thanks
