DO NOT CRUISE COSTA

Hi everyone, well im made a huge mistake and am hoping i can save everyone a lot of money. Booked a 10 day CRUISE on COSTA thought wow what a great deal for a balcony room. Boy now that im here, finding out how they can sell so cheap. They up charge for EVERYTHING.... ( theatre, room service, water...yes even a glass of water in dining room) add pizza and hamburgers to list of extra charges.  please look close before i book a cruise... i found out YOU DO GET WHAT U PAY FOR ON COSTA LINES........

Not to give anyone a big argument over your post, but U.S. News rated 17 cruise lines---Must be some pretty bad ones if COSTA managed to come in so high in certain categories.

"Best Cruise Lines 2018"

"U.S. News has made it easier to find the cruise that’s right for you with our Best Cruises rankings, which identify the best cruise lines and cruise ships for a variety of traveler types in a range of regions."

#7 in Best Cruise Lines for the Money----COSTA

#10 in Best Cruise Lines in the Mediterranean---COSTA

#9 in Best Cruise Lines in the Caribbean"---COSTA

My sister is cruising Costa next month. As a former “Cruise Assistant”and “First Purser” it will be interesting to see what she thinks of it.

So, because you didn’t do your research, no one should cruise COSTA Cruise Lines ?  

Well, back in 2005 we sailed Royal Caribbean. The food was salty. The meat was tough. The stores were poorly stocked, so I think everyone should avoid Royal Caribbean AT ALL COSTS.

 

 

btw, what happened to my other post ?  Oh wait, I think I know.

I don't know what to say! I pray that you enjoy your cruise. Did you use a travel agent or did you book it on your own?
