I chose this cruise because it had the right mix of fjords, northern ports, and international feel. I did not want to be on a cruise with a whole bunch of Americans, so instead chose a cruise with a whole bunch of Italians. This made a big difference in appeal and also in quality. Overall the cruise was fine and I am glad we did it. However there are a lot of issues at a corporate level I ...
I have previously been cruising with NCL (Norwegian Epic) and Royal Caribbean (Adventure of the Seas), so that is what I have to compare with. We always opted for the cheapest possible price/cabin. I was travelling with my wife and two kids (11 and 14).
This was fairly easy. Our luggage (3 out of 4 pieces) arrived at our cabin as expected. My suitcase didn't and the Cabin ...
Costa favalosa was the worst cruise I have ever been on. I have been on many cruise lines. the food quality was only a little better than a high school cafeteria food. The entertainment was poor. The ship had no real food choices but italian and that was very poor. All other ships have multiple food types and different places to eat. If the main dining hall was open the buffet was closed ...
Worst cruise from the start.
90% of the staff were rude.
The food on the ship was awful.
Couldn't get tea or coffee after 5:30 without paying for it.
Second week of cruise had no tea or coffee at all unless paid for it.
Our cabin was dirty and had stains on the pillows.
Most days room didn't get cleaned until 11 at night.
Very unorganised overall but especially when ...
Overall the cruise was good…but nothing special to write about. It has been a while since my last cruise (I have cruised on both Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past) so I knew what to expect but was aware things may be a little different now. The ship was as expected, elegantly decorated and the room was very spacious and well kept (we had a premium balcony). I was most cautious about smoking ...
We recently took a cruise on the Costa Fortuna in Eastern Europe. We chose the Costa cruise line simply because we had no other choices as we had specific dates we could travel in August. We departed from Copenhaugen and made port at Stockholm, Sweden, Tallin, Estonia, St. Petersburg, Russia, and Warnemunde, Germany. From Germany we returned to Copenhaugen.
This was my family’s fourth cruise. We ...
This was not my family’s first time on a cruise liner, however Costa surpassed our expectations.
Our trip immediately started on a good note. Even though we were quite skeptical for the embarkation procedure I have to say it was flawless. The staff was very helpful and midday sharp we boarded the ship, an hour before planned. As soon as we boarded the ship we were instructed that lunch was ...
Very unorganized cruise
Poor English speaking staffs

Worst disembark experience! Had to go back to port to pick up missing luggage. Unresponsive staffs!!!
Costa --- first time ...
We had a 14 days cruise on Luminose last month(actually in Baltic Sea and Norway) and I would like to share with you some my experience..
There were some new changes started on our trip: no buffet for dinner only restaurant, no free water on dinner table and no cold and hot and ice water after 5 pm (water stations were closed).
Menu was almost same everyday and cooking was terrible. In my mind ...
Our Baltic/Norway cruise was July 5-19. Luminosa is a beautiful newer ship and our room was very nice.
Costa still has a way to go to get me back.
- Charging for water at dinner was unbelievable.
- Same for yoga and spinning sessions (13 Euros each time).
- Want pizza after 6:30....then pay extra.
- Want a nice dinner....reserve a table at their special restaurant for 25 Euros each person.
