Beautiful ship but the additional costs are exorbitant and leave a bad taste

As a first time cruiser from South Africa, our family did the European cruise which was absolutely amazing from the ports we stopped at and being on the ship as a family. We enjoyed our time together although we were shocked at all the additional service fees charged from mandatory daily service fees (on top of an all inclusive package) as well as purchasing anything onboard e.g. a coke is ...

This was my second cruise with Costa. First one was with Smeralda . Check-in and access of the cabin worked well. Deck 2 insides. The journey from Copenhagen Danmark to Tarragona Spain went perfectly. The cabin was okey, interior grey but the bed was really good. The food is varied, the breakfast and lunch buffet is tasteless ,hot food is cold when you have found somewhere to sit. Restaurant ...

I know Costa as a place for great Italian food, vibrant entertainment, beautiful ships and a well functioning service. Now I took just a short time out on a repositioning cruise around Western Europe. I wanted to sail on Costa Firenze, because she and her sister Venezia caused very positive and very negative reactions and I wanted to have an impression on my own before the ship will leave the ...

What should have been a relaxing cruise for two ended up as a constant battle against a ship and its crew. There was no hospitality on board, worst cruise experience I have ever had. At one point I had to fear for my life and not one person would take responsibility. We were stuck in line on deck 2 with over 100 other passenger for more than a hour with no information or assistance, only after ...

Trip from IJmuiden to the Shetland islands and Iceland and back. Reading all the reviews I don't need to add much more comment. Costa is not learning from the reviews people are writing . In short: food is always cold/ extra payment for water!!!!/ extra payment for frenche fries/ pizza/ snacks. Embarkation was a chaos in IJmuiden. Much too less tender boats in some harbours with resulted in ...

We chose this cruise because of the dates and the itinerary, which fit with other travel plans. Also, the price for the cruise was extremely reasonable compared to other cruise lines making the same itinerary. However, we were hesitant about booking with Costa, largely because of the negative reviews on this and other sites from U.S. Citizens. But I must conclude that these negative reviews ...

If you are English speaking and want to take shore excursions don't book a cruise in Europe with Costa, Due to the lack of Numbers of English-speaking passengers there are very few excursions that are available, but you don't know that until you are on board and in most cases, you are advised a day or two before. The tours that you may be able to go on are with a guide who speaks at least 2 ...

If you are a North American traveller and have done cruises with American companies (Royal, Carnival, NCL etc.) you will be extremely disappointed. The service sucks - not enough staff to accommodate all the guests. The employees are rude and do you a favour they want to help you. The service is super slow and takes forever to get anything. The food options are mediocre, really nothing ...

As most of you know I can no longer go ashore but stay on the ship, Costa's team in Genoa & on board, made this cruise special for me, and a great big thanks to all involved in helping me cruise again. Firstly I had a loan of a wheelchair for the whole cruise, which proved wonderful as I could push myself round ship & to Club Dining room. The cabin (Suite) on deck seven was just the same as ...
