Costa Victoria Cruise Review by BetsyCruiser
- Sail Date: November 2011
- Destination: Eastern Mediterranean
We then sailed and were behind to our next port in Croatia and only got few hours there in the dark. It was very pretty place however I was disappointed we could not ride the cable car there
The port of Naples....that is a nightmare. Dirty, congested and pickpocket city! We got a cab and went out of town to see the Pompeii ruins. We hurried along as there is not much time in the ports. We boarded when we were supposed to and sat on our balcony and watched as others boarded late - we could have stayed another hour. I do not think Europeans know what "rules" mean.
The food on ship was much like hospital food. And the guests did not dress properly to dine in the dining room. So much for the clothes I packed.
The food was better on the back of the ship in the outside area. They only served water - no ice tea. Drinks (both Cola and alcohol were expensive).
Our waitstaff was good and our stateroom steward was great and kept our room very tidy. The bad grades would be for the management staff level. They seemed to ignore the passengers and very haughty attitudes.
The shows in the lounge were worst I have ever seen and costumes were ugly. I was embarrassed for them (dancers/singers). Only went to that once.
I do recommend a cruise - just not on Costa. I will not go on another Costa cruise. But again, I got what I paid for.
