What hapen IF the The lost enginer brook out.we shame. Officeal languids was 5,italy,german,france,spain,and bad englisch. They most have an scandinavia crew. The food loks werry atractive,but dont small anything nothing. Coffemachine was open 2times in à day,morning and afternoon 4-1730. Ju most have an drinkpaket,anyway it's gona be werry expensive for you. All presentation in the theatre are 5langues,we sleep before they start. When we have gala dinner,maybe 20ptocen was dress,ashamed. IF you dont go to the restaurang on the eveening you gona sleep hungry,IF you dont bay pizza or burger,Moneybrother money.ashamed. Same god things,the ship was so clean. You most learn chefs to dont serve red burgare,and till them about garlic an pepper.

We chose this cruise because due to the location we knew it would be cool weather wise.This was correct..nice and cool.Itenerary was Stockholm/Helsinki/St Petersburg/Talinn/Stockholm.Absolutely loved all the ports except St Peterburg.Would not recommend going there.And if you do my advice is if your there 2 nights as were were only sign up for one day of excusions.Many people had booked both days and wished after the first they had not.You cant get a refund if you book both.Also avoid walking tours in St Petersburg...terribly crowded in summer and street level grim and dangerous w pick pocketing.Be prepared for all the tours in St P to be extremely crowded.Your main concern will be not losing your tour guide.On this cruise the best place to shop is Talinn pricewise.We were very pleased with the Luminosa.Service was great food was good.Biggest complaint which is significant is no free wifi.Its crazy paying extra for wifi and we didnt but our trip would have been easier if we could have.Also wish they would have been better about keeping kids out of the adult pool.Other wise we were happy with our cruise.

If you are English speaking from the United States, do not consider this cruise line unless you enjoy being treated as a second class citizen. The passengers were predominately from Italy, France, Germany and Spain with few English speaking guests. This was our tenth cruise and we will never, ever book with Costa again. Food was nowhere near as good as all the other cruises we've been on. At the buffet we had green molded roll, toast with ants crawling on it, and in the main restaurant, even was served sour milk which the waiter tried to tell us was just the cream. Cream doesn't curdle on top your coffee and tea! It was only after we insisted he take it away and bring up new cups and milk, that he did so. In the main restaurant, at no time did the waiter ever come over and inquire if everything was OK. Even after we told him we didn't care for an item, did he offer to replace it with something else. Any meat that required carving was over cooked and tough. Even on formal nights there was no steak or lobster served. In fact if you ordered anything with shrimp you were served those miniscule shrimp that can be purchased in a can. Forget lobster bisque, french onion soup, etc. - never on the menu, but you could have their version of watered down minestrone soup everyday. And forget any speciality desserts like bananas forester, baked Alaska,pie ala mode etc. Ice cream, gelato, sherbet and one cake is the offering each night. You can order a drink package which can be purchased in advance for $260 pp which is supposed to include water, soda , liquor, wine, coffee and teas which we did. What they don't tell you is it doesn't include a bottle of water or can of soda that you can take off the ship during excursions. Only a glass of water or soda is included. You can purchase a bottle of water for an additional $5 each. They then give you a limited menu of alcholic drinks that are included. You can have a Margarita, but a strawberry Margarita will be an additional $6.50. Room service is also supposed to be included. It only includes coffee and tea in the morning and were surprised when we ordered their miniature danish and was charged $15. The buffet area was very large and extensive. Other than the green molded roll, and ants on the toast it was quite good. Plenty of choices for everyone for breakfast and lunch. We never ate there in the evening. Maybe that would have been a bette choice than their main dining room. The ship itself was beautiful and kept immaculately clean. We left a small tip each day for the housekeeper even though tips are automatically charged to you room so we always had enough towels and found our room was one of the first to be cleaned. We had a veranda stateroom and it was quite roomy and more than adequate closet and drawer space. The water in the shower and bathroom sink did have a strange odor that I never found on any other the other cruises I was on. The ports we visited were very nice and most of them allowed enough time for an excursion, beach visit and shopping. This was my second Costa cruie, but it will be my last.   Read Less

Don't knock it till you try it. This is our second Costa cruise in two years. Our first one was the most fun we had and this one is not far behind. The ship is well maintained. The staff are friendly. Both the cabin steward and the dining room team were great, dinner takes one hour fifteen minutes almost everyday. Dining room food is hit or missed and portions are smaller than other cruise lines. The buffet was open for full dinner on the first three evenings only. The lunch buffet was great, lots of choices. The grill served steak fries and their chicken burger ie great. The pasta was not cook well, not aldente but just under cook most of the time. Dessert selection was poor. I am just pointing out some of the weakness in the food area, when the dish was done right it was very good. Costa need to get rid of those stupid water and ice dispensers that uses sensors. They do not work properly most of the time, it will drive you crazy. Offer more than just ice tea would be great. The entertainment was just ok this time but it was great on our previous Costa cruise. However, ballroom dancing is just as good as before. Best ballroom music and dancing at sea. The TV program is horrible so bring a book. The ship was super smooth, never felt any movement. COSTA offers a terrfic value, different food and experience. Go with an open mind, we will be back.   Read Less
