Staff was kind and helpful, very clean. Cabin and corridors are cleaned daily. Restaurants on 5 and 9 floor was cleaned permanently. We were informed about everything by daily news. Very nice. Information desc was available all time. It was possible to eat 7 am - 10 pm. But in case of trip outside of ship, from 3,30 pm to dinner time, nothing to eat except cakes and bagetas. Nothing for ...

Staff is from the Philippines and they could not care less about the customers. They are paid very little money so obviously job is not made properly. We had a baby with us and one time we were asked to leave the dining room since there was no place for us and the baby. Food was great on a few occasions but twice we had to go sleep hungry since the food was inedible. I asked the refund for the ...

1. Cabin had layer of dust on furniture and carpet hadn't been cleaned in ages. It only got a good clean after complaining - only to be bitten by dust mites. Balcony furniture is in very poor shape and needs replacing. Hair dryer was broken and dangerous with parts exposed. 2. Food is mediocre and often recycled ie desserts available in restaurants the night before are recycled for breakfast ...

We wanted a break in mid April.. . . . . . it turned out to be very disappointing. 1. All jacuzzis were always full of people with no control of time limits so we stayed out. 2. Very young children (some with dummies) were uncontrolled, both on the dance floor and at the evening meal. No problem with children playing at the right time and place.. 3. The evening's theater music ...

The ship is of course not new. We booked on April/2017 (two adults and a child) a balcony cabin. The check in was very smooth since we embark from Malta and very few people embark from there. The total price was very cheap and we sailed 3 years ago with Costa Mediterranea and we liked it. But Costa Cruises have changed everything since then. There is no free coffee 24hrs only in the morning and ...

Most of the costa cruises depart from Savona port, northern italy, so if you fly to milan, you get a nice 2 hr scenic coach ride to port, with great shots of the alps, and fab views through hills and tunnels. Always go all inclusive, Costa probably do the best deal, approx 20 to 30 euros per person per day, and its WORTH IT! Compared to other cruise lines that want $70 PPPD! How exactly does ...

We have not taken a cruise holiday for several years, with a few weeks notice, we booked a cruise with Costa. This was our first time with this line, however we have used Celebrity, Carnival and Princess Cruises in the past. We arrived by car to Barcelona port, upon arrival, was all a bit confusing on where to go, park, etc. One of Costa officials said, you can park in WTC, show your paperwork ...

Bought the cruise to celebrate my wife's pregnancy . Make the mistake of booking online. They said some beverages are included. well only water was included. Besides that the cruise is designed solely for italians.. all the activities around the pool are done only in italian and you are always lost in what is happening. besides that the waiters are REALLY IMPOLITE.. excedenly RUDE.. the only ...

My wife and myself chose this cruise as the date, price, and departure point fitted in with the rest of our holiday plan. We read the reviews before travelling and went with great trepidation as it seemed that our cruise was going to be awful! IT WAS EXCELLENT!!! Embarkation was fine - we arrived in our inside cabin to find that it was bigger than anything we had experienced on the "high level" ...

I have to write a review because I believe that there are so many bad reviews on this ship that I have to chime in. Our cruise was very nice with the highlights being the immaculate condition of the ship, the excellent food, and the very friendly behavior of the staff. Of course there is going to be congestion on a ship with 3000 people and yes many if not most of them are Italian. We enjoyed the ...
