Costa Pacifica

August 2016 - 12 Night The Northern Capitals (Kiel Roundtrip) Cruise on Costa Pacifica

Needs new computer systems and better communication to English speakers!

The itinerary was  the reason I chose this one.  I would never go on Costa again.  Too many people, too much being herded like cattle, they don't seem to care about English speaking people (the daily news was often missing information, like explaining that there is a Gala celebration and what that means, and the announcements were not always repeated in English).  The staff was nice, but I think they have to follow bad procedures. For example, the disembarkation meeting was primarily a sales pitch for future cruises and to rate the staff highly, and then she didn't have time for questions. The computer systems do not interface with the My costa system.....not worth the money spent.

October 2014 - 12 Night Shadows Of The Ancients (Rome To Istanbul) Cruise on Nautica

Cruise Tips

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Awesome sites, but one guide for 40 people is impossible. Hermitage is extremely crowded. The representation that you won't wait in line if you book on line excursions is not true.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Nice city, but they cancelled my excursion and I didn't find out until the night before, even though it was booked and confirmed months earlier.

Expect to spend A LOT of time standing in huge lines. Do not rely on the information given to you on the internet or on your personal "my costa" account on line since the computer systems do not seem to interface. Don't take cruises with 3800 people!
