Excellent Greek Islands Cruise (+Izmir in Turkey)

We really enjoyed this cruise. We were in cabin 6001, and were a bit worried when we read some of the reviews on here after we'd booked it. But no real problems. There is some noise from the anchors being let out, but that's over in a few seconds. There is shuddering as the ship manoeuvres, but that's felt everywhere. The walls are thin and we did hear sounds from the next cabin and from the ...

We did the 7 Beaches cruises, around the Greek Islands, and a visit to Izmir in Turkey. Fabulous apart from a couple of hitches getting ashore due to windy weather - only to be expected. The Greek Islands never disappoint apart from Samos, there were roadworks going on so very dusty and hot. Wouldn't voluntarily go back as there isn't much to see unless you're on an excursion Classica crew not as ...

We chose this cruise purely for the itiniary , 7 ports in 7 days and lots time in every port. Embarkation in Heraklion was quick and painless, no horrendous queues as we have experienced on previous cruises. We had a 4 berth inside cabin, which had plenty of space for us and our 2 children. We didn't do any excursions ,but found we could do the things we wanted to do and see by ourselves. As we ...

A Pleasant Surprise

*6= Having booked this Cruise as part of a 2 week package including a week on Crete we were slightly nervous of what to expect as the Price was ridiculously cheap even having upgraded to outside Cabins.We were a party of 3 as we took our disabled 84 y.o. mother (who is totally wheelchair dependent) and this in itself can be problematical if things don't go smoothly with ...

This was my first Costa cruise. I’ve cruised on nearly all the other cruise lines including MSC, another European cruise line. I wasn’t sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised and very much enjoyed the cruise. The ship was in good condition, our oceanview room was fairly typical of other cruise lines, the main dining food was very good and the breakfast and lunch buffet was OK. The ...

Our second cruise this year with Costa and probably our last. We embarked at Heraklion on 25th October and, with hindsight, this experience set the tone for the entire cruise. The queue to check in and deposit luggage was not particularly long so we thought we'd be on board quite quickly, we were wrong! We waited in line for around two hours whilst 1 person checked passports etc. and one luggage ...

Crete to Italy - Fantastic Experience

We embarked on the ship in Heraklion, having flown in from London. We travelled as a family of 3 (myself, my wife and my 10-year old daughter, who is in a wheelchair). The embarkation in Crete was what I would consider to be the worst part of the cruise. Heraklion is not really geared up to be a cruise port but more of a ferry terminal. The small embarkation building meant that some people were ...

The boarding was a little shambolic especially when the baggage scanner packed in and they tried pushing all luggage through the hand baggage X-ray, total chaos ensued. Eventually got through this one and bussed to another queue in a ship side marque that turned out to be for the pre-boarding snap, not a happy picture! Glad to say it all improved from then onwards. This was our second Costa ...

If you are happy to be part of 10 per cent British people the other 90 per cent were Italian German, French and Russian, that's fine and you are happy to see entertainment in anything but English! The food was nothing great and the so called Lamb Shank on the last night on a bed of Smash Potato was horrendous. Cabin Steward very very accommodating though. The Cabin was comfortable, but on the ...
