I have never been so disappointed and dissatisfied

Review for a South America Cruise on Costa Favolosa

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

I can't even begin to start, the captain is a terrible driver we were on the 9th floor and we felt the ship moving so bad that the whole family got sick the food is extra and the buffet food is the same every day we couldn't even play bingo correctly without people yelling about the numbers and it was rigged to drop down from 5000 to 500 dollars no one ever wins the 5000$ I suggest if your gonna ...

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Favolosa

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

All us residents should read this review before opting for costa cruise lines (in europe) or this ship, the costa favolosa. If you are familiar with the “normal” us-type ships (e.g., carnival, royal caribbean, ncl, holland america, etc) then favolosa will come as a shock to you and the standards you are used to. i am not trying to be disparaging but simply stating the facts in comparison to ...

Avoid at all cost - not worth a $

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Favolosa

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

If you are a North American traveller and have done cruises with American companies (Royal, Carnival, NCL etc.) you will be extremely disappointed. The service sucks - not enough staff to accommodate all the guests. The employees are rude and do you a favour they want to help you. The service is super slow and takes forever to get anything. The food options are mediocre, really nothing ...

Excursion assistant manager very rude

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Costa Favolosa

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

The restaurant staff very professional and well trained. Out cabine room was superficial clean every day lots of dust and the bedsheets not changed for the entire week. The excursion staff lack of knowledge and very rude not happy to offer any excursions in English unless is just downtown were we can go by ourselves. We we looking forward to have a nice hiking and engage with nature but NOT ...

7 Nights Cruise to North Europe on Costa Favalosa

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Costa Favolosa

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

We chose this Cruise Trip to North Europe, as this covers four stops in Western Norway, besides Copenhagen and Goteburg in Sweden. This was our second trip on Costa Ship. Very happy with their Itinerary, since main attraction was to visit Norwegian Fjords. Vast variety of food and comparatively far better Entertainment compared to others. Overall a great experience and Value for ...

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Favolosa

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

As most of you know I can no longer go ashore but stay on the ship, Costa's team in Genoa & on board, made this cruise special for me, and a great big thanks to all involved in helping me cruise again. Firstly I had a loan of a wheelchair for the whole cruise, which proved wonderful as I could push myself round ship & to Club Dining room. The cabin (Suite) on deck seven was just the same as ...

Never again with Costa..

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Favolosa

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose the cruise for the destinations which we had not been to previously. The embarkation in Valencia was a fiasco and no assistance when entering the ship from Costa staff. Beautiful ship, we had a classic inside cabin which was fine. We did notice that the carpet wasn’t too clean but other than that okay. Went to buffet to get a bite to eat and drink!!! No way, it is only open for short ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We choose this sailing because of the itinerary. We are experienced cruisers and have been on over 30 cruises. We had never tried Costa Lines but virtually have sailed with all other cruiselines including Norwegian, Holland America, Carnival, Royal, Princess etc.. We had thought how bad could Costa be? Firstly. when we boarded, our Passports were immediately confiscated When we ...

Great staff, unfriendly passengers

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Favolosa

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I had been on this cruise before and had a nice time. This time it was a different experience because our fellow travellers were rude and unfriendly. I have no idea whether this has anything to do with Brexit, but despite my trying with my Italian and French, they didn't want to know. We had a personal problem on board that meant we had to go home early, so a smile or a greeting would have ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Costa Favolosa

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We have just arrived in Waremunde, Germany from a 7 day Fjord Cruise on Costa Favolosa. When we first considered Costa as part of our 6 month tour of Europe we were very hesitant. We had sailed three times previously on Costa and we vowed never to sail Costa again. Money being the driving force for this trip, finalized our decision. Keeping in mind our previous experiences with Costa, ...
