It was alright.
"We were seated in the 3rd floor dining room so, we could not see any of the entertainment the dining staff put on.I joked with the other couple we were seated with, that we were the leftovers and that was why we were at the catch-all table set for 10 in the back of the room...."Read More

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. ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

It was by far the worst cruise we have ever been on! The service was terrible! Nobody was friendly. Bartenders are not nice or helpful. The food is absolute trash and the chefs and servers are very very rude. We talked to over 50 people and all of them agreed to never go on a costa again. After 8pm you can’t get anything to eat except for the pizza that they charge you for. Can’t get bottles of ...

We chose this as a last minute cruise with a deal we found on Black Friday. You get what you pay for. This was our 4th and worst (by far) cruise. If you are american expect to be treated horrible. I had one bar staff (Roberto Santo) who intentionally served other Italian guests (that came to the bar AFTER me) before serving me. He was so rude! Here are just some of the ...
