The lady at the port that checked us in was very rude!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in Club Favolosa was excellent. We had a great time thanks to Jennifer and Bryan. As far as drink service don’t try to get a non-alcoholic Pina Colada from the bar. I was told at several bars that they couldn’t make one I had to argue every time that it was the same process just don’t dump the alcohol in!

Main shows were great

Children's Programs

We have a 15 year old who has been at see over 100 nights. He did not have a good time like help normally does. Not many activities until late and then he had a language barrier.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our butler Ruffy was excellent. We didn’t actually see him often but we knew he had been there. The same thing with our cabin steward Ian.

Ship Quality

Everything was always sparkly clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was great well cleaned by Ian and well stocked in the fridge and our fruit bowl by Ruffy.

I would pick a different cruise line if you are wanting to have conversations with other passengers that speak English

Geiranger, Norway

4 out of 5
The port was pretty. Very little to do at the port. We did an excursion to the top of the mountain. It was a English tour but the guide did not know English well.

Bergen, Norway

5 out of 5
Cute city with beautiful houses. Only problem is that it rains almost every day

Stavanger, Norway

5 out of 5
Lots to do at the port. We had an excursion booked but Costa cancelled it in English due to lack of participation. We found plenty to keep us busy.

Goteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden

4 out of 5
The city was fine. Costa used an industrial port that us 30 minutes from any place and then charges 15 euros to take the bus to the city center

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

5 out of 5
Quaint little town. Once again Costa cancelled our excursion in English due to lack of participation. We found plenty to do without it.
