Review summary

This was our first cruise( done shorter before) We are a very well traveled couple both in work and leasure (luxury,all inclusive,adventourus,charter and on our own) and we are satisfied with Costa cruises and the ship Costa deliziosa. We had read some really bad reviews about both the ship and the cruiseline.. I must say I dont know what they are talking about! The staff where great to talk to,fun,professional and attentive! The food was well prepared and very tasty! We would absolutely go again with Costa cruises

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining : albatros had great staff and very tasty menu all week! The special restaurant called samsara restaurant was a bit slow the night we where having dinner there so we got full attention from tthe staff there as well. We booked in advance so they knew we where coming. The special restaurant with the hamburgers on the other hand was not as good experience to be honest. Kinda rude staff,tasteless burger and I got more then I ordered (ordered just a plain burger with cheese but got with potatoes,mayo,sallad,tomatoe) so I paid more than I usually should...really bad with other words! The drink package we choosed was ggreat for us! We love prosecco and nice wines and piu gusto package covered that and more.

Corfu, Greece

4 out of 5
We did an excusion organized by Costa (prebooked) and it was great but to short time at both the stops (corfu town and the caves) The caves where fantastic to look inside and the captain of the boat was fun and competent The local guide seemed a bit bored to be honest

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
A great guide and a fantastic island. Beautiful scenery and very competent guide called Glyka!

Mykonos, Greece

3 out of 5
We went on an excursion that actually was about going to a beach just. Very windy this day and cold in the water

Dubrovnik, Croatia

3 out of 5
My wife went on a kayaking and snorkeling excursion and she said it was ok but could have been better organized with the bus. Should have been personnel to guide people to the right buses..

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Easy and well organized. What costa should think of is that there personnel that are in positions for disembarking and embarkation should know better english
