COSTA is a very disorganised company!

We chose this cruise because it visited the Countries and Ports we really like. I contacted Costa on 29th February the day before flying into Singapore and they told me the cruise was going ahead as originally planned. We had heard via (Facebook) that Cambodia and Vietnam ports had already been canceled, and I suspected that Thailand and Malaysian Ports were also going to be canceled as ...

We booked this Far East Asia cruise six months ago after seeing it advertised in our local newspaper. It was included in a package with return flights to Singapore and was priced very reasonably. We always check reviews before making holiday bookings (cruises, hotels etc) but in this instance we didn't until after we had booked. After reading the many negative reviews about the Costa Fortuna we ...

Part of a package of 4 Cruises. We are a couple in our mid 70s who have been on several cruises and this is our first Costa Cruise. Cabin - spacious. Crew - overworked but wonderfully friendly, courteous and helpful. However, *No ice- bucket in cabin in spite of it being a Premium Balcony - whatever Premium means in the Mediterranean. The fridge was not called. *We only had ...

So I just got home from my first Costa Cruise (Feb. 2020/SE Asia). There was SO much question about Costa going into it. We choose Costa because, quite frankly it was the ONLY ship that went to our desired destination at the exact time we could go. Otherwise, honestly, after reading reviews on Costa, I would have chosen any other line if offered by another line as my husband and I are Princess, ...

Disappointing

Embarkation was very disappointing. There was absolutely no system of boarding the ship. On board everything was Italian themed. Even the quizzing and bingo was in Italian. If you are sailing in international waters you need to make allowances for other passengers as well because not only are Italians travelling on your ship but other nationalities. I think one of the bars should have had ...

2 weeks sailing from Singapore 17/12/19 to 30/12/19. Paid extra over Christmas (nearly $5000 AUD. And so it went as follows: Air conditioning not working in cabin. No soap in cabin..had to ask for a $5000 cake of soap. mediocre room cleaning. No clean sheets for 2 weeks. Evacuation drill was a confused mess with no communication or guidance from staff. No help from staff to put on life vests as ...

Would not be shy to admit that kids travel free was a bid draw for me. Secondly, was attracted to the itinerary from singapore to Koh Samui to laem chabang(ie. Bankok or Pattaya) and Cambodia. Love the fact that it was docked at Laem Chabang for 2 days so had more than enough time to explore and enjoy the stopover, which we did by signing up for a 2d Bangkok & Ayutthaya tour. It was a pretty ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

It was fitting to my choice of the ports, countries and my time. That was the reason I buy this cruise. But will never again on this ship. Generally the cabin (room) for me as being a hotelier for 40 years was ok. We had booked balcony cabin and thanks god I did it. By chance we were on the buffet restaurant level. It was almost impossible to find a seat in the restaurant so we were bringing ...

My wife and I booked a back to back cruise around South East Asia with Costa for their cheap balcony pricing and attractive port itinerary. We read a lot of mediocre at best reviews of Costa and decided to give them a chance in hopes we would have good luck. Upon arrival to Singapore we were immediately upset with the logistics of the cruise line. We stood in line for two hours to embark only to ...

We cruised with Costa for the first time in 2018, on the Diadema. It was excellent, so we booked again on the Fortuna. All in all, it was a good cruise, but I felt not as good an experience as the Diadema. The ship is smaller for a start, and I missed the numerous bars and extra expanse of the Diadema. The staff were in the large part nice and friendly with a few exceptions. Those who ...
