Our embarkation was in Guadeloupe which does not give you many options from Canada. But learning that it is a French island flights from Montreal are direct and worth going. Costa did not offer transfers from airport to ship but a taxi ... Read more

This was my first experience and will probably be my last due to Costa Favolosa. At first impression, this was a WOW. But the good impression lasted two days only. This ship is very poorly administered and lacks organization. 2,000 people ... Read more

I have previously been cruising with NCL (Norwegian Epic) and Royal Caribbean (Adventure of the Seas), so that is what I have to compare with. We always opted for the cheapest possible price/cabin. I was travelling with my wife and two ... Read more

We have cruised with several shipping companies. Costa is without competition the worst we cruised with so our recommendation is do not throw away your money on this company and its ships. The food on the ship was really lousy and ... Read more
