Never Again

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
We have been on 10 cruises so feel we have some experience in cruising. This cruise on the Costa Luminosa was by far the worst cruise we have been on and will be the last cruise for Costa Line.

The two good things about the cruise was that the balcony room was great and the ship was clean. The rest was not so good. The food in both the buffet and dinning rooms was warm to cold and not a real good variety.

They kept changing the dinning times for the buffet so one could hardly get a cup of tea or coffee. They were always running out of coffee espically in the mornings. Most of the waiters could hardly speek english so make it difficult to figure of the meals in the dinning room. They were not talkative and friendly at all.

Every there was an announcement we had to sit through at least six different languages until english was spoken and some times we never got any in english at all.

My husband and his friend went on an diving excursion in Grand More Cayman that was supplies by the ship. The whole trip was a disaster as our friend was not able to dive for long as they did not have a life vest to fit and it was suppose to be an english tour which too much time was spent explaining to others who could not speak english at all so which took time away from the dive. My husband went to guest relation many time to complain about the excursion which they did not care at all even though each spent $108.00 to go for nothing.

The ship does not back up their excursions. The evening shows were so,so and not much entertainment was provided after that. The only saving grace was we were a group of 8 and made our own fun so couple not imagin if we went along. Spoke to many other english speaking people about the cruise and the general

concenses was they would not go on costa again eigher. Did I mention there was only a skeleton crew on and that we are Canadian and a pretty tolerent people but not in this case. So please save your money and go on Celebrity and we have never been disappointed with them!!! Less
