Costa Victoria Cruise Review by Margaret Robinson: Holiday Heaven
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Our expectations were not high as we knew the Victoria was an old ship-we had been on the Indy media launch and knew what a superb vessel she was. We couldn't,t fault Victoria.
Our cabin was small but very comfortable and spotless,with a cheerful steward who kept us supplied with iced water. The food couldn't be faulted whether in the buffet or in the dining room. We had a window seat in the dining room and sailing down the Grand Canal on the first night was a wonderful experience. We had bought the X1 drinks package and thought this was value for money.
Thought the tours were very poor value and would do our own thing another time. Entertainment was first class but often difficult to find a seat-one night we just stood at the back. Although it is made clear that a sum is added to final account for 'service' some people were having a moan after receiving their final account. We actually left a tip for our steward as he was so good. Do check your final bill as More there were mistakes on mine and my daughters bills.
Although this year we are flying to Cuba it will be at least a two weeks cruising every year from then on. I only wished more cruises would cater for the lone passengers-I don't say singles because this implies you are looking to become a double. Can recommend cruising for all ages Less

Sorry can't remember cabin number. It was an inside cabin close to back of ship. Quite small but couldn't fault it. Any one who is claustrophobic would not 'hack' it
