So I've read a lot of bad reviews about this ship and they are not true at all. I've cruised Costa before as well as Princess, Celebrity, NCL, RCI etc.. To start with it's worth saying that this is not an American cruise line, its quintessential European (Italian) and you get what you pay for! We paid for a suite for the same price of an ocean view on a similar Celebrity cruise itinerary of the far east. Pro's: - Free room service breakfast (for suites) was well worth it. It avoided the queues and the rather bland breakfast buffet. Really good option! - Staff were generally amazing. Especially restaurant staff, our Butler Angelo and our room steward Babbo (?) - Lunch buffet and dinner buffet were good. Not amazing but on par with carnival cruises -Evening meals at the speciality restaurant which is included for suite guests is good! Some really good options especially if you are a fish eater! - Clean ship with lots of pools and hot tubs, plus a free spa which is good -Suites are awesome and worth paying the extra for! Huge balcony and shower room, plus priority boarding , tenders, disembarking etc.. Con's: - Entertainment is generally terrible. I don't go on cruises for the entertainment, but if you do then please note this! You get what you pay for with the entertainment - The food is generally geared towards meat eaters at the sit down restaurants. Just a note for any vegetarians or vegans. I coped ok, but with a lot of cheese and pasta - The experience would have been considerably different had we not had a suite. Our friends had a standard balcony and said they didn't enjoy it as much due to not as great food options, queuing, no free drinks package , no butler etc.. we had such an awesome deal it made sense. Could never afford it on NCL or princess etc.. Generally very good, great itinerary and I would recommend it for anyone looking for something slightly different and cheaper. Read Less

First of all, the cruise was cheap. 8 nights in outside premium with 250 MB internet and drink package including both wine, beer, cocktails and special coffee and included gratitude (service) for 700 $ per person. So expectations of course needs to be in relation to what paid. First the positive: -Itinerary is great with stop in Port Klang, Langkawi, Phuket (2 days), Penang och Malacca. Only one sea day -Ship is not overcrowded. Compared to larger ships the 3 swimming pools and deck chairs seems sufficient. Previous cruise was with Carnival Magic and it carries 1000 more passengers with only 2 swimming pools. I was never able to get into one. -Costa knows how to throw a great deck party. Really fun on white night! -You get some nuts snacks when sitting down in a bar ordering a drink -Compared to previous cruises the launch hours have been extended so some kind of food was available to 4PM at least (previous it was no food on the ship between 4:00-6:30 PM) But still, lots of things they need to enhance: -Communication is non existing. Like, where will the ship dock? is the time in local or ships time? Is room service available, there's no menu? Is it included in the premium price? Where's the exit when in port? How's the disembarkation procedure? -Ship interior is outdated and ship looks overall worn -Buffet food is hardly eatable. -Excursions are way to expansive -Entertainment is just sad -General lack of activities to do on your own. Why not have some shuffleboards, mini golf, fussball games etc available? They had ping pong tables and a tennis court, but there's no equipment and no information how to get the equipment so it was never used by anyone As we have cruised Costa before we expected not much, still a bit disappointing. However it works if you only expect to use the ship as a mean of cheap transport with food between interesting ports of call. Still slight more comfortable than an airplane or bus at least ;) Read Less

Embarkation was very disappointing. There was absolutely no system of boarding the ship. On board everything was Italian themed. Even the quizzing and bingo was in Italian. If you are sailing in international waters you need to make allowances for other passengers as well because not only are Italians travelling on your ship but other nationalities. I think one of the bars should have had English music for at least a couple of hours for non Italian people to enjoy. I spoke to a number of groups while disembarking and they were all very disappointed. As for the food it was horrible. The meats were hard and had no salt or taste. As for the Indian counter the food was absolutely tasteless. The food in the Indian/Asian counters (I felt) were actually the food that the staff eat and Costa decided to make an Indian/Asian counter out of that. Very disappointing. My cabin 6263 was very noisy. All night I could hear banging of doors and could not have a good nights sleep on the 8 day cruise. The staff at the information desk were not very helpful and would get irritated if you asked them a question. I have been on Princess cruises and they is absolutely stunning no comparision to Costa. Princess Cruises are a class above all. I will never ever cruise a Costa ship again. Read Less
