Good for Italians Not so Much for English

Review for Costa neoClassica to Africa

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 spent one night on board ship then took the ship sponsored trip to Agra to see the Tai Mahal. That trip was very rushed. and we almost got left in the Delhi train station on the way to ...

We had an insurance conference. Sailed out of Mumbai till Cochin for 3 nights. From the welcome till departure everything was seamless. Thomas Cook employees were also coordinating with the Italian staff. We also had a lot of Indian staff to manage 300 of us. The main meal was a buffet in Al Fresco and we had a choice with Tivoli where we had a sit down dinner to be booked a day in advance. ...

I read some terrible reviews and ignored them. That was a big mistake. This company is bordering on a criminal organisation A complete rip off. They lie about everYthing and try to extract every penny from you. THEY EVEN CHARGE FOR THE USE OF A TABLE TENNIS BALL! They cut corners everywhere and have missed out several tires of management resulting in on deck chaos. No customer care and no ...

The cruise from Mumbai, to the Maldives and to Sri Lanka and back seemed ideal. I love cruising and India and this cruise was January a good way to get away form the cold in UK. I booked through a cruise company not directly. The initial concern was a visa. Ringing Costa to ask for advice I was told they didn't know if I required a full visa or not (In fact a full visa is ...

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 times. On getting on cruise, Costa offered a package of 6 bottles of wine and 7 bottles of water over €113 cheaper. I asked to change but they would not let me. The wine on the Pranzo package ...

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 the option of one pool (small) and no Jucuzzi, unless they were 16 plus. What were they supposed to do, so it was boring on cruise days . Not even allowed to use the gym. The ship ...

BAD EXPERIENCE NEVER COSTA AGAIN IN MY LIFE

I had recently been on the costa neo classica . Not a good experience as it is not indian friendly and the food is terrible , mostly frozen stale and half cooked or half baked. They cater to italian delicacies and totally ignore the needs of other country specialties. They ran straight into the ockhi storm and had a rocking ride from day one. They expect guests to pay for water every time which is ...

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. There is no thought put in as to how to make it inviting. The ship looks "tired" and in need of some rejuvenation. There is nothing exciting going on and, quite honestly, the crew ...

After reading previous reviews I was slightly worried what to expect from this ship but I was pleasantly surprised. I went on this cruise with my partner for 6 nights to Greece and Italy. We got on the ship at Bari. Embarkation went very smoothly and quick. The ship itself was smaller to what I have previously been on but still a good size. It was clean all over and comfortable. There was a ...

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 service superb. Americans on Costa get their water with or without gas free! This was a great surprise for us since I regularly drink water with gas. At night we had entertainment both ...
