Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Premium Balcony

I totally agree with everything others on this site have written about the ship Costa Venezia - it was a terrible cruise.

The food was poor - we were on the ship 53 days and only had salmon twice, it was low budget food every day. Always long lines everywhere. The embarkation in Trieste took 5 hours stranding in lines without water or food. And it continued with queue the whole cruise from the buffet to the pool area, sun beds, theater, excursions. Always kaos with poorly trained staff and a very bad logistics from Costa so butter, wine, glass, beer etc was missing for serveral days. There was something totally wrong on the ship - the staff was NOT smiling and we did not have the feeling off beeing on a vacation. The information onbord was NOT existing - we got No information about the port/city we were going to visit. We couldn't follow the sailing route for 3 weeks on the tvscreen - it went black and we didn't get any other information instead. We had to stay in lines 1,5 hour 3 times during the cruise to get a stamp in our pasport from the customs officers there were on board. Again totally kaos.

The exit in Tokyo was dealyed 3 hours and we had to stand up becaused there were not seats enough.

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony

Cabin BP

A Lovely big cabin with a nice Balcony. But all the doors slammed in and made a lot of noise all times of the day.

There was no fridage. And you had to bring your towel with you to the pool and back again. Our stevard Jonathan was very nice og very good, the only positive on the ship
