We have done 5 cruises with Costa this was the worst.food was bland no water at table the waitress was the best thing about it.the cabin was very noisy as we were at the front asked to change but said ship was full so several days didn't get much sleep.cabin was kept clean but the cabin boy was not very helpful.days at sea were boring as not much entertainment put on.there were only 50 or so ...
This was our 24 th cruise and our second with Costa. The frist being many years ago and it was our second cruise ever. I've never written a review for the other cruises, but I felt compelled to do so this time , wishing to help inform other travelers about my expencience. Hard earned money and vacation time should not be wasted ,the selection of cruising with Costa , well I would advise people ...
When travel with Costa you are treated like cattle that is there only for them to milk money out of you without showing you any respect.
What about informing you att 22 in the evening that you must leave the cabin att 8 in the morning for the only reason that they are saving on personnel costs.

Room steward was excellent but overworked, on other ships we never saw a room steward working every night at ten pm.

The itinerary was interesting and the price was reasonable so I decided at the last minute to go on this cruise with my friends who booked long before I did.
I knew Costa do not have the best ships so I did not expect the best.
I also did not expect the worst.
One positive thing to start with: I got a cabin upgrade and I have nothing bad to say about my cabin, it was very nice.
