6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

The wife and I took the cruise in the Costs Marina basically because it was a small ship and I wanted to try a different cruise line having cruised mostly on Hollandamerica. I had originally tried to get this cruise in November but was told the Marina was going in for a referb, once on board and walking around I could see why. The layout of the room was a bit odd, the beds were in an L shape. ...

We traveled on the Costa Marina on July 5-July 11 from Barcelona to Monaco, Livorno, Sardinia, Capri, Tunisia and Menorca. We were an American family of six. My husband and I are in our 40s, my parents are in their 70s and our children are 10 and 9. This trip appealed to all of us and we all enjoyed the ship and fantastic itinerary. My parents have been cruising for 40 years and have probably been ...

Costa Marina 17th January - Canaries etc. Ship - If anyone enjoys the very large ships then they should think carefully before booking on the Costa Marina as it doesn't take very long to walk from one end to the other, but it is a very nice ship and much friendlier than the large ones because if you get chatting to someone, then you are sure to meet up with them again. We got to know various ...

The Outward Journey. All was well until we arrived in Milan. Despite the instruction, to look out for a Rep from GlOCO VIAGGI there was no such person. We wandered around the concourse and the outside coach area in vain in extremely cold temperatures. Convinced we had somehow missed the transfer, we nearly gave in to the many offers of special price to Savona from the many cab drivers touting ...

Are you a good sailor? If not look elsewhere as the Costa Marina is a rough ride. At least it is in the Atlantic. We spent many a "happy hour" clinging to the bed to avoid being thrown off!! (No exageration). Do you enjoy a drink? Then learn to go tetotal as drinks on board are at crazy prices (ie 400ml beer Eu 4.50 plus 15% service charge. Whilst we are on the subject of service charge, don't ...
