My wife and I had heard and read very mixed reviews on Costa but this cruise which included flights and a two night stay in Venice at a very affordable price booked through Cruise Nation looked too good to turn down. Even had the ship been like a budget hotel on sea the itinerary was great so we had a chance to visit Croatia and Montenegro for the first time. Well, our expectations were ...

So this was the first time we've sailed on Costa so we went in with fairly low expectations (Due to other reviews, the sinking of Concordia and crash of Classica) and we only paid £210 for the week. But they exceeded expectations and were better than some other cruise lines we've been on. We've sailed Princess, HAL, RCI, NCL, CMV, Carnival and MSC. This Costa ship and experience was ...

Our family had a fantastic time apart from a couple of points. Venice departure point is amazing. Embarkation was quick. The ship is lovely and always being kept clean by the hard working staff. Cabin is quite big. The food got a bit repetitive and queuing system at buffet not very good. The service in the restaurant was very slow, should have an early dining time for families with children. ...

Exceptionally rude customer service, you raise a complaint and they do nothing, just deny it and refuse it happened. Never any apologies. Service so bad, it becomes irritating and the food is tasteless and very little of it, Have to pay for water even for medication and tea/coffee only free at breakfast time and between 4 and 5.30 in the afternoon. Buffet also stops during the day and you ...

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 days on the Costa Meditteranea sailing from Venice to Katakolon and return. We also sailed during the week of a storm so had an extra day in Corfu but have nothing but praise for the staff. We are an English speaking retired couple who travel quite a lot. At no time did we feel that as English speakers life was more difficult for us on the Costa ...

We chose this cruise because of the ports some of which we had not been to. We sailed from Venice to Trieste, Split, Dubrovnik, Katakalon, Corfu and Kator. We had previously been on 30 cruises, 4 of which were Costa which were prior to Carnival buying them. The food was OK, not great as it used to be. The entertainment was only great when they did the production shows which was only twice, but the ...

We wanted an Adriatic cruise with great destinations and ports. This cruise delivered spectacular views and 7 ports of call. The positives included the amazing food and service at the restaurants. The shows were excellent as well with the singers and dancers being professional and enthusiastic. Best stops included Split, Corfu and Venice. Sailing out of Kotor was a great experience to watch the ...

Travelling independently we flew from Stansted to Trieste airport, which is around an hour from the city. A bus from the airport to the city costs around 6 Euros and leaves half hourly, it delivers you to the bus station which is adjacent to both the rail station, taxi stance and local bus terminii. Rather than pay top whack for a city or riverside accomodation for a 3 night stay we opted for a ...

My review is written in 2 sections for reasons that will become apparent. I'm reviewing the service and food etc, then an incident that had a major impact on our trip. This is our 5th Costa cruise. Despite what is written by others we have always had a great holiday. Yes, there are issues, things aren't quite what is expected, the management are surly and short (not height!), but that happens ...

Hi, We are an English couple, 60 years of age who have just completed our first Costa cruise. This was on Costa Mediterranea, 7 days down the Dalmatian coast in late April 2016. To put our comments in context I should add that we have previously cruised with Cunard, MSC, Princess and Celebrity. If you have experience of different cruise lines you will know that each has its own individual ...
