Never travel on Costa Fascinosa

Sail Date: April 07, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was the worst cruise I have ever taken. The ports were great but the ship was terrible. I did not like the food they served and the service they provided was not up to par. It took 12 hrs just for someone to fix my toilet. The entertainment they provided was not interesting. Wish they had more to do on the ship. I spoke with other passengers and they said that they did not enjoy this cruise either. They cruise other cruise lines and said this one was the worst. If your only wanting to see the ports then this is for you. I did love the ports but a couple of times they were late getting this set up so that took away time in the ports. Check in was a nightmare, everything was disorganized.
