Costa Cost-a-lot Nightmare

Age 60s

My family had wanted to take a Mediterranean cruise for years, and after completing six domestic cruises in the U.S., we decided to finally take a giant leap over the pond for a European cruise. Simply put, when booking with Costa, shame on me for not doing research; I was unaware I was booking with the European version of Celebrity Cruises! Upon onboard it, our first impression was that the Costa ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

I choose that cruise, because it was the only one for my date and location. The ship is pretty old, the cabin especially the bed and the shower were very good, but your hear everything from outside ... you have to pay for everything. The worst is the WiFi ...3 GB for 150€... The staff of the ship are very poor - they have to represent a high standard, but themselves have a horrible life ...

So a group of 7 girls decided to go on a cruise for one of our friends 40th birthday, only 2/7 people has done a cruise before so it’s an amazing idea on something different to do. We boarded at Barcelona, everything went very smooth, the check in staff were helpful and informative, so sat at the bar waiting to be called. After looking at the info the check in desks give we head into our room, ...

The furnishings in the cabin looked well used. The ship is getting old but it is still seaworthy. The staff gave conflicting answers to simple questions asked. A inexpensive Wi-Fi program was offered to counter the expensive charges on regular internet programs. Unfortunately this program was useless as you could not get your emails. Some of the water dispensers in the buffet lines ...

We did a Med. cruise on this ship and it was , well ok, but I couldn't say I would recommend it to anyone, in fact I would not recommend Costa t anyone other than an Italian, why, well it's because they don't really care about anyone much other than the Italian passengers. The annoncements are in Italian , sometimes repeated in English if you could call it that,very hard to understand most ...

Our first Costa cruise ,chosen for the ports that we had not been too. The ship is quite large in good condition, clean, with elaborate decor. Most of previous cruises have been with Royal Caribbean. It has some very different policies. Passengers were mixed mainly Italian French Spanish, only about 250 passengers spoke English, although most staff had reasonable english skills. The most notable ...

6 ports in 10 days plus a rare opportunity to go to an Arab country. The itinerary was fantastic and the ports themselves met my expectations. As for the ship, well, that also met my rather low expectations. I had cruised once when I was much younger and didn't really enjoy the experience of being trapped on a boat with people with questionable hygiene and d-list entertainers (hey, I've lived ...

Age 70s

We chose this cruise as it was extremely good valve for money. We secured it through Groupon and flew from Gatwick to Nice. Transfers smooth and on arriving at the ship our bags were whisked away and placed outside our cabin, let the fun begin! The ship is very ornate and the interior decorating a little offensive to those who like colour co-ordinated surroundings! However it was clean and ...

For perspective, we are an American couple in our 50's. We booked this cruise for the itinerary of almost all places we had never been to before. We are now "empty-nesters" so this was a chance for us to travel off season and enjoy each others company. We chose to embark on the late side to enjoy some more time in Barcelona. After maybe a 10 minute cab ride from the Duquesa Suites we were at ...
