Good for Italians Not so Much for English


We wanted to see India but were concerned about the pollution so thought this cruise would be the best way. We were in Mumbai for 3 days before embarkation to explore the city. Boarding the ship went well. We ...

Costa are very money grabbing, with poor customer care.

I was in same group as MchrisD and would echo everything that was said. In addition, I pre booked bought a drinks-package Pranzo & Cena for €237.86 which entitles you to wine and beer only at lunch and dinner ...

Not our best cruise

This was my 4th cruise and my first with the Costa line. Will also be my last cruise with this line. The ship was small and we knew this, but the restrictions placed on teenagers was not acceptable. They had ...

No better way to see India by sea

We scuba dive and this itinerary gave me and my wife the opportunity to see India by flying into Bombay and use of the ship for a hotel for a day and half while touring Bombay. The ship was fantastic and the ...

Aweful!!! Stay away!!!

From the moment you get to the port in Mumbai there is total confusion and chaos. We have been on about 30 cruises and this ship is the worst we have ever been on. The rooms are mediocre and unexceptional. ...

A 3-star cruise for high bracket price, (mostly) to interesting destinations

I chose this cruise thanks to its stops in many Mediterranean islands. Apparently some stops could be avoided as there was nothing interesting to do there. The ship is renovated with a modest but comfortable ...

Lovely, Old, Classic Ship and Charming Greece

I had seen the Costa Classica in Singapore harbour about a decade ago, she looks like a cruiseship should look. Last year I travelled on her 'Neo' stable-mate, the Costa Neo-Riviera twice (around the Gulf and ...

Ships on a budget!

We have cruised with Costa before and had enjoyable trips, however not this one! In a nutshell they appear to be cruising with economy. We boarded at Genoa after a coach transfer from Milan - all good. We were in ...

The itinerary was interesting and the price was reasonable so I decided at the last minute to go on this cruise with my friends who booked long before I did. I knew Costa do not have the best ships so I did not ...

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, ...
