As most of you know I can no longer go ashore but stay on the ship, Costa's team in Genoa & on board, made this cruise special for me, and a great big thanks to all involved in helping me cruise again. Firstly I had a loan of a wheelchair for the whole cruise, which proved wonderful as I could push myself round ship & to Club Dining room. The cabin (Suite) on deck seven was just the same as ...

I had been on this cruise before and had a nice time. This time it was a different experience because our fellow travellers were rude and unfriendly. I have no idea whether this has anything to do with Brexit, but despite my trying with my Italian and French, they didn't want to know. We had a personal problem on board that meant we had to go home early, so a smile or a greeting would have ...

This was our 24 th cruise and our second with Costa. The frist being many years ago and it was our second cruise ever. I've never written a review for the other cruises, but I felt compelled to do so this time , wishing to help inform other travelers about my expencience. Hard earned money and vacation time should not be wasted ,the selection of cruising with Costa , well I would advise people ...

This was a 9-night "Beyond the Pillars of Hercules" Mediterranean cruise on the Costa Favolosa. It was our first cruise on Costa (we live in the US and previously had been on Carnival and Celebrity in the Caribbean). We enjoyed the trip very much. First, we chose this cruise primarily because of the ports (Malaga, Casablanca, Cadiz, Lisbon, Valencia, Barcelona) and had wanted to board in ...

If you respect yourselves, do not even think of going on the Costa Favolosa (and by extension, on any Costa ship). We are experienced cruisers, this was our 12th cruise with various lines. The balcony cabins are spacious, but cleaning the room was only done in a perfunctory manner. Breakfast was a nightmare. Either a cold selection in the buffet. Believe it or not, no warm food in the buffet! Or ...

To begin with are the positive.... The ship was very clean and beautiful. We had a suite which was absolutely beautiful and perfect. Nicest suite we have ever been in. Our butler and room steward were fabulous and willing to do anything to make us happy. Now that is it with the positive! Food was HORRIBLE!! And this was not just our opinion. Everyone in our group plus nearby table guests ...

I have used costa for the second time and once again i was not impressed at all with the service given. Here under are some favourable and unfavourable conditions. favourable: Depart from my own country in Malta, only 10 minutes away from home. Very well clean room. Settle the bill very quickly Costa card is given at imbarcation stage and thus you don't need to go to the reception ...

As a regular Costa traveller we are concerned with the latest changes in service, food, quality and choice. Since May many Costa ships are no longer serving or making available English breakfast food in the Buffet areas....no bacon, sausages, eggs of any descriptions , no omelettes they do have toasters which won't toast even after passing through 3 times. English Breakfast, German, American & ...

This is our second time on Costa Favolosa and how it has changed in the last 2 years.Firstly I must tell you that although other's complain about Costa cruises we have only sailed with them and always found them to be good.We are now Pearl members and only been cruising for 3 year. Embarkation was excellent as we arrived very late and was on the ship within 30mins. Our room which was balcony ...
