we didn't choose the ship or the company, but we went for the Middle East itinerary.having sailed in owners suites on both Holland America and Royal Caribbean, we knew it would be a bit of a step back, but, as we sailed with Carnival in suites as well, we got exactly what we expected.nice ship, o.k. food (but not at lunchtime, not even in the main restaurant) and nice entertainment (except for the ...

We thought the Costa Victoria was lovely at the time, but the Deliziosa beats it hands down. Modern and beautiful, this ship is stunning.We have done the Middle East trip before, but this time had to miss Bahrain due to the unrest. Not keen on staying in Oman for two days, would have preferred Abu Dhabi.We had a balcony cabin which was lovely, cant fault it. Lots of storage space, adequate ...

Embarkation We arrived about half an hour after the allotted time and found no queues. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bags were delivered to our cabin in a few minutes. Others we spoke to who arrived too early had not had a pleasant experience as they were not allowed to board, although there was a baggage drop area. Ship This is a new ship and as you would expect is in excellent ...

We travelled from Cairns, Australia to join Deliziosa in Dubai for the 7 night cruise. We were able to board the ship around PM but did not get access to our cabin until around 8 PM. Some guests did get into their cabins earlier. The cabin was a good size for comfort and there was plenty of storage space. We did not have any problems with the cabin other than occasionally the shower drainage ...

It was very great. The ship was new and often cleaned and the condition of the ship was well! The itinerary was okay - we visited Dubai, Muscat, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. Very interesting. The food was also good - okay, the first day, the breakfast was a bit disappointing, but all other days we liked it. Dinner was great - every day. We had to dine in the main restaurant (late ...

First let me say we have cruised about 20 times on various lines and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. So, we are not serial moaners and we have never had cause to report a negative review before. This cruise was 18 nights repositioning from Dubai to Savona visiting many ports in the Emirates, Oman, Egypt, Jordan and Italy. Major sightseeing to the Pyramids, Luxor, Petra, Suez Canal, ...

I am a first time cruiser and chose the Costa Deliziosa "Jewels of the Emirates" cruise round Dubai as this is somewhere I had always wanted to visit and the cruise seemed to have everything I was after. Myself and my partner chose to pay for the J2 package before we left out. We could take any drink we liked from the minibar excluding super alcoholics (not sure what they were actually - but we ...

I'm not sure if I was on the same Costa Deliziosa as other reviewers here as we found it to be an excellent ship with excellent staff and excellent food. I traveled with my DW and DM. The cruise was Dubai to Savona, with stops at 8 ports. Embarkation We flew out on the Saturday and had an overnight in a hotel near the airport. There was a Costa rep waiting for us as we came out of ...

This was our 2nd time cruising with Costa and we were really looking forward to it as we had a brilliant time on the Serena 2 years ago(our 1st cruise!). It was nice to see more Brits on board and a good mix of Italians, Germans, French and various other Europeans. Cabin: We got our first ever balcony so we were well made up and we got our request of portside. Cabin was fresh and clean as ...

We decided to book everything with Costa through our TA and through Costa website. This was good and bad. Good because of the flight/transfers because this way we had nothing to worry and because we got a deal that offered us the X1 drinks package (excellent for those who don't drink alchool like us). Bad because due to the Bahrein cancelation due to the unrest overthere the tour package we had ...
