Ragged ship, overpriced excursions, fine dinners

Review for Costa Victoria to Asia

Costa Victoria is more confined than the ships of similar price we know (this was our smallest cabin ever) and would need major refurbishment. Our bathroom was a little smelly at times, and the shower tray was running out of water. The feeling of narrowness was exacerbated by the fact that the ship was full (of course, we can't complain that Costa is trying to rent all the cabins). That amount of ...

We chose this cruise mainly due to the itinerary as India has been on the list for a while. The negative reviews were numerous but we decided to go ahead as we were not expecting 5 star treatment. First the positives; Embarkation was quick and easy as was disembarking. The staff was pleasant and helpful in the dining room and bar. The excursion we booked for Goa was OK. Second the 'requires ...

The cruise was part of Imagine Cruising itinerary for our cruise of the Indian Coast. We would never have chosen Costa Cruises as their reputation precedes them. But with good intentions we went ahead. Rather a dated ship to say the least. Exceedingly Italian, but we could live with that. The cabin was adequate if a little crammmed in. Certainly no luxuries. The Restaurant Manager listened to ...

Firstly can I say, I'm baffled by the previous two negative reviews given that we were on the same Mumbai to Cape Town Cruise December 28. I do agree that the on board service was delivered in the usual outstanding way and this included Guest Relations enquiries. We had little or no issue with the unlimited WiFi included in our booking deal. We travelled in a Verandah Plus Cabin on Deck 8 which ...

Disappointing cruise

No Amazing evening - all cancelled, no white night all abandoned, missed ports and very poor decision making by the Cruise directors. Cuts in included drinks and cuts in quality food, very poor cooking. Good on board orchestra but that s all. The Guest relations dealt withy the visas very well so that was good. Not memorable and really quiet naive and badly lacking in research as this is AFRICA ...

We went from Mumbai to Cape Town - 24 nights with 11 sea-days. I will start wit the good bit by saying that the staff were without exception excellent and as good as any ship that i have sailed on. The rest of my comments are critical - Management was another matter! We did not get off to a good start! We were supposed to spend two days in Mombasa, Kenya which was a prime reason for us ...

My husband booked cruise on Costa Victoria mainly for destination Indian Ocean I was a dubious after some of the reviews. We arrived at Mumbai Port at 11am and were allowed to board straight away. Embarkation was fast and straightforward and we headed to buffet while waiting for our cabin which was ready by 2pm. The cabin was a good size and clean. Our cabin steward always had a smile and ...

This is our 5th Silversea cruise and we are currently on the ship. Service and food are no where like it used to be. Obviously it’s purchase by Royal Caribbean last year has affected the elegance, food quality and top tier service we’ve experienced in the past. We are going to be on the hunt for more luxe cruise line! The service in La Terrazzo is SLOW and the food was cold and subpar to ...

We wanted to go to Dubai and are experienced cruisers world wide. This is our 12 th cruise and it started in Mumbai. Mumbai should never be visited unless you like crazy traffic with shanties everywhere. Way way worse than the poorest town in Mexico. The next 3 ports were literally gravel pits with commercial cranes and little access to leave the ship. At one port my wife and I barely made it ...

We boarded Silver Shadow on 17th April 2019 in Mumbai for a 9 day cruise visiting ports in India, Oman and UAE. We chose Silver Shadow as we had sailed on her in 2016 in Alaska. In 2016 the ship truly lived up to its 6 star rating in all respects. Comparing the latest trip with the 2016 trip I am sorry to say that Silversea has lost much of its reputation. The only standards that haven't ...
