Never again with Costa..

We chose the cruise for the destinations which we had not been to previously. The embarkation in Valencia was a fiasco and no assistance when entering the ship from Costa staff. Beautiful ship, we had a classic ...

First and last cruise.

This was my first cruise, so I have nothing to compare it to, but based on my experience on the Favolosa it will be my last. Initially boarding was a nightmare - only 2 people to book in dozens of passengers that ...

Worst cruise I've ever been on

With only 3 exceptions (our dining room waiter Mark and two workers at the duty free shop) everyone on the cruise was very unhelpful. The crew also seemed unfriendly and unhappy in general. For example, I went early ...

I will never choose Costa again

It was a terrible cruise. The staff was very rude, the beverage package we chose, Brindiamo, didn't have bottled water and for the night we had to buy bottles of water, even if the water was included in the package. ...

Could be much better with some communication and respect.

When travel with Costa you are treated like cattle that is there only for them to milk money out of you without showing you any respect. What about informing you att 22 in the evening that you must leave the ...
