We liked the itinerary and it was a good value. The ship is beautiful with lots of really wood. It was well maintained and spotless. The itinerary changes due to the Covid-19 virus were NOT THE FAULT OF COSTA, and we believe that the cruise line, the ship's officers and the amazing crew did all that could be done to keep us safe and informed. The in room food service while we were quarantined ...

Medical the best, avoid tours group and hope you don't need the host desk

This was an RCI package cruise and the worst way to ever travel (bye bye RCI) because it was either a balcony on Costa/MSC or an interior room on the bigger names, like Royal. We decided to try Costa and it will be the last time. First, Costa likes to play the "we're separate entities" game when dealing between the host desk and tours. No one is responsible to the passenger but the department ...

Our bad cruise experience on the Costa Luminosa. Dec 2-20th 2014, from Sovana Italy to Miami, 18 day transatlantic cruise. Here are a list of negative things we experienced from our cruise recently on the Luminosa by Costa: We had a panoramic suite # 8374. Renesa our room steward was very well trained in cleaning and housekeeping with 7 years experience she told us. But everything else was ...

Staff is A+,house keeper Christopher Cabbo and waiter Jonathan González are 5 stars on my book and in general all the where always helpful.On the flip side of the coin...They charge for everything.The charge for water at the restaurant and they don't have the buffet after 1:30 pm,if you are hungry you most dress and go at the restaurant.The don't have coffee after 10pm and they charge for pizza ...

Very mixed feelings about Costa. The best service from the staff and some of the best food that we have ever had on a cruise ship! We did all our research and knew that our shore excursions may get cancelled for lack of English speaking quest and they were. The tour desk was very helpful re booking us with our choice of languages, we chose German for Casablanca and Rabat. Took lots of pictures ...

I have always loved Costa, going back to the Fredrico C, Carla C, and Flavian. Service was very European and luxurious-we had this 3 years ago on the Costa Serena, so when we decided to go westbound transatlantic we chose the Costa Luminosa for the trip - the itinerary contained 8 ports we never docked at (impressive sine we have over 100+ cruises under our belts. The ports were interesting but ...

Costa Luminosa trans-Atlantic Dec 2 - 20, 2014. A very disappointing cruise. Before the cruise we understood the drink packages were confusing and that was true. Water was not available in the dining room unless you bought a water package or brought your own bottle that you may have been able to fill during the breakfast or lunch hours at the buffet. Also cocktails or specialty coffee drinks were ...

After reading all the negative reviews we were very apprehensive about stepping aboard Costa Luminosa for our 28 day trans Atlantic cruise. All I can say is you don't believe all that you read. The first issue was language as Australians & English as our only language ,we had no difficulty in communicating with the staff and crew ,all shows included English and shore excursion are offered in ...

We have done 11 transatlantic crossings. I am reluctant to ever answer the question as to which was the best or worst. I have never posted a review prior to this, but felt compelled this time for two reasons. Very few, on this board comment on Costa, and most I have read tend to be somewhat negative about many aspects. We have been on many lines over the past 20 years. Costa is very European. Out ...

We were very impressed with the ship when we boarded. This went rapidly down hill when we realised Costa had such a bad Smoking Policy. All areas had smoking areas, but the problem was that non-smokers were overwhelmed by the smoke from these areas. Every night we went to our cabin smelling of smoke. I caught a cold after a couple of days, which was made worse by cigarette smoke. To add to our ...
