Costa Deliziosa Cruise Review by enjoy traveling

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Panorama Suite with Balcony

This was the ONLY cruise ship available for the one week we could sail and go to the ports we wanted to visit.

The food was sub-par. The crew was miserable and literally opened up about how poorly they're treated and paid by Costa. Ever since Carnival Cruise Lines purchased Costa, everything's gone downhill.

The entertainment was extremely poor. The dancers acted as if they were practicing just going through the motions, and not really performing. It was an embarrassment for them.

The activities director NEVER spoke one word in English. Most of the cruisers were Italian and she catered to them 100%. This was the overall theme the entire week! Even the nightly DJ'S spoke and exclusively played italian. It was as if they were purposely trying to exclude ALL NON-ITALIANS!!

Many of our excursions were canceled because "there weren't enough English-speaking cruisers on board," so we were told.

Never again will we sail on Costa Cruise Lines!!! They couldn't pay us to cruise with them again.

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with Balcony

We had an upper level suite and the ship's engines vibrated us like crazy!! It was nearly impossible to fall asleep each night. Everything in our cabin rattled. It was horrible!!!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

City Tour

The guide had a hard time talking in italian and English and yelled at tourists who asked questions. The city streets smelled like sewer at times. Couldn't wait to get back on the ship.

Dubrovnik was the highlight of our cruise. It was the silver lining of the costa dark cloud.
