Review for Costa Concordia to Europe - Western Mediterranean

The Concordia (Costa) is a nice enough ship. As on all lines, the staff was pleasant, the ports were charming and fun to experience. It was the moment to get away from the daily work hustle and bustle to be with the lady I have loved for 40 years. My absolute disappointment started with the on board internet system. Slow is normal for most cruise lines (obviously because of the profit ...

We took the Costa Concordia Western Mediterranean cruise over Christmas and boarded in Savona. Boarding in Savona was smooth and efficient - could not have been better. Luggage was in our room before we reached there. We took an outside-view cabin. The room was spacious but untidy. The sheets were unclean, pillow had stains and the bathroom drains were blocked. We needed to make frantic ...

Positive thing: the cabin area and layout was good.The old style shower curtain was a challenge. After one took a shower the bathroom was like a swimming pool.I felt sorry for the cabin attendants. The food was a disgrace. The self service for breakfast and lunch was very limited in options and without any alternatives for a passenger who wants to do a balanced diet. As an example, no skim milk ...

We just came back home last night after sailing last week on Costa Concordia. Our family was two kids age 15 and 10, my wife, my mom who flew all the way from Israel and of course my mother in law. We all had a great time together on the ship and visiting ports of Savona, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Malta and Palermo. The first stop in Savona we went to Monaco. The trip to Monaco was ...

I've cruised on cheap and expensive ships and enjoyed them all .However, Concordia was to be the exception. Embarkation and disembarkation were quick and efficient - a breeze! The cabin, apart from its location near entertainment areas, was good and the cabin staff excellent. The colour scheme of the ship has to be seen to be believed - brash! The shows, especially the dancers, were ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Background This was my first cruise. I have friends who enjoy cruises and its something that I have wanted to do for a while. I had some annual leave I needed to use up before the end of the year, so was looking for a last minute holiday to book. I had a look on the Cruisecritic website looking a cheap last minute cruise and saw the Mediterranean Spirit cruise offered via IdealCruising; however ...

Very good value for money - but you get what you pay for.

This was our 2nd cruise this year - our first was with Princess in the Caribbean, with a balcony - and we wanted something not too expensive, which is exactly what we got. We originally booked an interior cabin, but having worked out the actual size, decided to upgrade to an outside. We made a good choice, as having seen the size of the interior ones on board, I don't think we'd have been ...

We made a 7 night western Mediterranean cruise with Costa Concordia starting from Civitavecchia visiting Savona, Barcelona, Mallorca, Malta, Palermo. We used the train to get to Civitavecchia from Rome; it was not easy to get to the harbour from the train station; you have to walk at least 10-15 with your luggage's. This is nothing about Costa but you should know and organize ...

I almost didn't book this cruise due to the reviews I read here but decided to be open minded and give it a shot. I was extremely apprehensive while boarding the ship as I really didn't know what to expect. Let me preempt this review by saying that I travel extensively, have done about 9 cruises and did this cruise after a 3 week stay in Europe as I thought it would be the cheapest way to get to ...
