My review of Costa Victoria trip Jan. 4th - 18 Mumbai

First thing the inside cabins are about 4 feet smaller then -Princess, Cunard , RC, Celebrity, Carnival, and so on. Could not open my night beside side drawer see pictures. My bathroom think water was brown. When I had to call the front desk because my fire alarm was going off - nobody came to see what was up- nobody answer the phone # 88 customer service - after 15 min my husband finally found our cabin steward which got someone to change the battery. After he left -AGAIN the alarm went off ... eventually it got fixed. Shower curtain was to short - after a shower the BR was wet had it changed.

Buffet: only packets for decaf coffee-at night when you need it or want it ---- all gone, sugar containers where empty numerous time, milk container same, no paper napkins, Supervisors just walking around doing nothing - Except " Indian looking one " Yogurt bowl empty, omelets cold, only same 5 vegetable available for 14 days- carrots, garbage red and white, zucchini, tomatoes, bell peepers.

Cabin Review

Inside Classic

Cabin was much smaller then my other experiences on NCL, Carnival, RC, HA, Cunard, ...Could not open my nightstand drawer without moving the blanket out of the way. No desk, no regular chair, only one socket in the whole room. Bathroom curtain to short so bathroom flooded. TV selection not reflecting customer country, bad reception see picture.

Cabin steward was great.

Port Reviews

Mormugao (Goa)

everything is far away need transportation so taxis know that and take advantage - Catholic shirines are an hour away....

Mumbai (Bombay)

Go to outdoor laundry, Slums, Portal of India, spice market, Recommend Linda Tours - Dipen was AWESOME GUIDE-

Kochi (Cochin)

could not take any excursion since they where demonstrating a new immigration law. So was concerned we could not come back to the ship in time. Had stalls to by stuff by the boat.

Colombo

Took a double decker bus tour for 25.- dollars. Go find them 200 yards away from port exit. Good value
