It is different from American cruising but, I got use to the environment being a bit on the cold side, I don't mean temperature wise but the coldness of the staff. Only the room attendants would automatically speak to you. Officer's would walk right past and not look at or acknowledge you. It seemed that they were scared you might ask them something and they really didn't want to be bothered. ...

We thought it would be more for adults. Wanted diversity with other nationalities. Wait staff and bartenders were very nice. Costa excursions are a far cry from being organized.Recommend going on your own as Costa tends to forget about you once you are off the ship. This company wants to nickel and dime you for everything. Very pushy about buying extras. Stated many times not interested but they ...

My wife and I (both active 60-year old’s) have been on a couple of Carnival Cruises, first time on Costa. We sailed mid-January on the 10-day cruise out of Fr. Lauderdale. We chose this cruise due to the length of time and price. It was dirt cheap and we had very low expectations. I had read all the reviews and was worried about coffee, water, drinks, and food. On top of all that, I am very ...

We chose this trip because of the Itinerary/ We knew it was targeted for the european passengers and were aware there standards were lower then the reg American cruises ... Not sure why .. The first thing I noticed is the lack of hand sanitisation stations and one's that were operating properly.. The cabins were not cleaned properly after last trip, noticed staff not following through on good ...

Don’t book Costa unless you’re planning to be drunk 24/7

Selected this cruise based on itinerary and low price point. Absolutely disgusting food. Crew is pathetic and service was rude or non existent from nearly all staff. Many, many, many unhappy passengers. Lacked fresh produce, food was tasteless and extremely limited choices. We actually lost weight on this cruise it was soooooo bad. Do not book this ship unless it is your first cruise and it’s all ...

Well, we chose this cruise because it was listed as $590, which sounds like a good deal, especially over new years. This was a huge mistake. Speaking exclusively to the price, yes it was $590 initially, but then you can expect a service charge of 12.50 per day, per person charged to your cruise card. So really, not $590. Not to mention, everything on this ship is paid. Pizza, ice cream, deserts ...

We chose this cruise at the last minute for a New Years Cruise, our first of this nature. The ship is beautiful, the cabin spacious, entertainment and activities are above average for a cruise of 7 days. BUT, this ship is really BEAUTIFUL, Murano glass, marble floors and highly polished interiors make the Luminosa a spectacular ship. We had booked this cruise, allowing the cruise line to ...

We, as a group of couples, decided that we would like to be on a New Year’s Eve cruise. This was one that had an itinerary, and price that we were interested in. Check in went well and was efficient. The rooms were a great size and had tons of storage. Not happy with not having a turn down service,but, found that that was the least of our problems. The first night at dinner, I decided to ...
