Customer reviews for Costa Cruises
The basic cruise was good value and customer service very good. Cabin and ship very clean. A few issues worth noting, limited activity for my teenage grandson. Long often chaotic delays during embarkation and disembarkation and finally too many extra costs.
All of the arrangements for transport to/from the destinations were well organised and went off without at hitch. The hotel Europa in Desenzano was very comfortable and we had a room overlooking Lake Garda. The Carlton Hotel in Venice was in a great location, however the room was the smallest we have ever stayed in and was quite claustrophobic. Our cabin on the ship was fantastic and very comfortable. The whole ship was kitted out to the highest standard and was kept immaculate during our cruise. The staff were very friendly and our cabin staff and waitress in the Club Restaurant were superb. This was our first cruise and we really enjoyed the choice we made.
Ha sido una buena experiencia, los únicos inconvenientes que le veo son que las 2 piscinas que tiene el barco son muy pequeñas para la cantidad de pasajeros que hay. Y la otra sería que el tiempo de visita a las ciudades durante las excursiones es muy poco y casi no te da tiempo a ver nada. Pero en general ha sido una buena experiencia.
