Our ship departed early the morning after boarding allowing us to explore Stockholm before departure. Embarkation and disembarkation were very well organized and went very smoothly. There was no waiting for check-in. We were on board within 10 to 15 minutes of arriving at the port. The ship itself was very well designed. There was never a wait at any of the 3 elevator groups. Moving about ...

I’ve finally chosen a cruise with Costa Luminosa after considering the same route, activities onboard, food seletion with other cruise line companies such as Royal Carribean, Norwegian Cruise, Princess Cruise. I selected Costa due to the reasonable price in comparison with Royal Cab and Norwegian (almost 1.5 times more expensive for the same cabin type, same route Stockholm - Helsinki -Tallin ...

My Italian sister-in-law who lives in Italy chose the cruise, as she has only ever cruised on Costa and does not realize that there are many better cruise lines from which to choose. Ship: It compares very poorly with MSC, Princess, Celebrity Or Holland America, our usual choices. 1.There was no water, tea or coffee available other than for purchase at the bar or when the buffet was open. ...

This was our first Costa cruise and we loved it. My husband and I had been wanting to see Scandinavia and St.Petersburg, so we decided to book this cruise. The ship was lovely and very clean. Things were well marked and it was easy to find one's way around. We had Suite 7314 on deck 7 which couldn't have been a better location. Our stewardess, Fe, kept the room immaculate and there was ...

I was part of a larger group, booked via Globetrotter so I really did travel with Costa by my own choise. (Aktiespararna, where I´m a member, had a 50 year anniversary cruise.) • The cabin was really excellent, spacious and fresh. Very few disturbing sounds. • The theatre, where we had two days of education, was poorly equipped; the resolution on the screen was terrible and it was ...

This was the WORST most HORRIBLE cruise I ever taken ever .Nasty Salty food. . One of the Gala nights the food looked like it was from a culinary school dropout that you would feed to a pig. Poor service My family and I were ignored many times in the bar as we watched others being served even though we were there before the others. Class of passengers were rude ,nasty and obnoxious .On ...

Greetings, fellow cruise lovers, I write a review like this one once in a blue moon, but this time, in view of the "terrible press" this ship has been having here, I felt that I had to. I understand that other cruisers have not much appreciated this ship lately (to put it mildly). My companion and I had a rather different experience. We boarded the ship in St. Petersburg which turned out to ...

Costa cruises are only worth considering if you can buy one really cheaply and forget any notion that you'll get good service and be treated like a guest. On the positive side the dinner service and food was quite reasonable, unfortunately everything else is very sub standard. The impression is that the company is struggling to make a profit and therefore is charging extra for everything it can ...

A last minute booking, but having been on Costa ships previously I had a good idea of what to expect. I liked the fact that there were only 13 English passengers on board and lots of interesting people to meet from around the world. The staff were polite, even under pressure, and were extremely hard working. The cabin was kept clean and serviced efficiently. It was pleasant having a 'dual aspect' ...
