Our lowest level of expectation was not met

Chose this cruise because of the hot deal of $400pp, the timing was perfect for us, and we had a need to pamper ourselves with downtime and get away from the awful year we had endured. Planned to relax in the sun ...

Don't do it!

We chose this as a last minute cruise with a deal we found on Black Friday. You get what you pay for. This was our 4th and worst (by far) cruise. If you are american expect to be treated horrible. I had one bar ...

Stay far away-- cheapest cruise line ever

Well, we chose this cruise because it was listed as $590, which sounds like a good deal, especially over new years. This was a huge mistake. Speaking exclusively to the price, yes it was $590 initially, but then you ...

Hope this wasn’t your first cruise experience.

This cruise was chosen by someone else so we could go on a New Year’s cruise. First I must say that this was my fifteenth cruise but first (and last) cruise on Costa. I cannot find many positives to say about this ...

Poorly Trained Restaurant Crew

Usually the food on a cruise ship is a major highlight. Not the case on this ship, that is gorgeous, has a beautiful spa and well appointed cabins. Apparently the regular restaurant and kitchen crew get Christmas ...

Medical the best, avoid tours group and hope you don't need the host desk

This was an RCI package cruise and the worst way to ever travel (bye bye RCI) because it was either a balcony on Costa/MSC or an interior room on the bigger names, like Royal. We decided to try Costa and it will be ...
