Cruise to Eastern Caribbean

|

We chose this cruise to join some friends on a vacation and the ship went to islands we had never been to before. This is the first time on a Costa cruise. I had read previous reviews about pushy people, ...

Pleasant Cruise

What we liked about the tour: • The room was an ideal size and the placement of the bed was nice so you could walk around it and could see out the window. • Lighting in the room was more than adequate, ...

Glitsy Italian boat

This was our first cruise on Costa. We were apprehensive because we never cruise on Costa before. Favolosa is a beautiful and great boat, maybe the decor is a bit to roccoco for my taste but the service is top ...

VERY DECEIVING !

This was my first experience and will probably be my last due to Costa Favolosa. At first impression, this was a WOW. But the good impression lasted two days only. This ship is very poorly administered and lacks ...

Second worst cruise of 12, food terrible, choose another cruise line!

The MSC cruise a few years ago was my worst cruise, this COSTA was the second worst cruise I ever did. After booking I read all the bad reviews so I had contacted the cruise line and they did charge 75% of what I ...

Nice cruise, but would not choose Costa again.

My husband and I just returned from a one week cruise on the Favolosa. We have sailed on almost 20 cruises with most of the major lines so have a good base for comparison. Overall we enjoyed the cruise but there ...

If you do not speak Italian, don't book.

We booked our trip on the ship a year in advance, the ship had not been to this port in the last four years. This ship is made for Italians speaking people only, if you do not speak that language then do not book a ...

Disappointing First Timers' Cruise

Embarkation was slow and a little chaotic but bags were waiting at our cabin. Don't stay in 8312, we were disturbed by the constant scraping of chairs in the cafe above. Cabin kept immaculate by our steward, towels ...

This First Time Cruiser enjoyed herself!

Everyone who complained about the cruise ( mostly the food ) said I couldn't really be objective about this ship as I was a newbie to cruising, therefore I had nothing to compare it to. While that might be valid I ...

Not even a glass of water available after 6:30 p.m. in the whole ship

I'm starting right with an issue that, in my belief, overwhelms any other comment possible on this cruise. Every cruise day, after 6:30 p.m., simply there is no food or drink whatsoever available in the whole ship, ...

Need to know.

The Costa Mediterranea is arguably a beautiful ship. It is our third cruise on this very ship, the years have reduced her status. Had we known about the service or lack thereof we would never have chosen this cruise ...

It's Italian!

The thing to remember is that this is an Italian ship. Although it departed from Miami, it is an Italian ship. Most the passengers were Italian followed by French and Spanish with the number of Americans far behind. ...

Costa does not equal other cruise lines!

To pre-register on Costa website you need lots of patience. Their website is not very advanced. Boarding in Miami was easy. Ships was clean and neat. Lots of passengers get on at French Guadeloupe - so you have ...

I was advised against cruising on Costa lines and rightly so! The shower has no cold/hot water pressure regulators so you are either getting cold or scalding hot. The dining room is 100% staffed with waiters from ...
