We've been on more than 25 cruises from Carnival to Cunard. It's always been a great experience. I booked with Costa, because I had heard they have large dance floors. It was beautiful: the floor, the music, the ...

If you do not speak Italian, don't book.

We booked our trip on the ship a year in advance, the ship had not been to this port in the last four years. This ship is made for Italians speaking people only, if you do not speak that language then do not book a ...

This ship is one of the largest of Costa Cruises. The checkin was very fast and efficient. Once we got on the ship, we realized how spectacular it was. As it was a special cruise New Year, it was almost ...

To Sum It Up; Average

Embarkation was a little more organized than noted in some of the previous reviews. At first it was not made clear how the process works. Upon arrival at the port, you hand over your luggage and are given a plastic ...

Lack of water spoilt this cruise.

We had great food, great entertainment. We were more than happy with our cabin, and our dinner waiter. However, the thing that spoilt this cruise was lack of water. They wanted us to pay for every drop we drank. ...
