Not comparable to other cruise lines by ST27704338

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: South America

Food, attentiveness of staff, decor, accessibility to English language were all poor. This cruise line can not compare to Princess, Holland America, or Royal Carribean.

An awful cruise by AshleyP1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Nasty food, uncomfortable beds, rude out of line staff, and I could go on forever. Basically this ship is to rip people off and get everyone's money, if you go on this cruise, expect nothing more than the worst. The only good thing was the places we went. That's it.

Nice Cruise by ShellyP

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

We had a great time on our cruise. The places were beautiful. The ship was huge and kept very clean. Staff, especially our cabin steward, were nice. Only wish was that we were alotted more time in some of the ports. Overall, really cherished experience.

Don't Sail Costa Worst Cruise Experience by JasonH1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We booked an oceanview room, and landed under the navigation deck. We were told we had to leave the curtains closed after dusk. Couldn't even leave them open at night because "the light would glare into the navigation deck". They would round on us every day to ensure we closed them. So why did we pay extra? The food was horrible. Shows were amazing. Every announcement was in 6 languages. No one could speak English. Our cabin steward threw away our belongings and we STILL, months later, have not gotten any compensation for it. ONCE, I have been offered a cruise credit, but I will never sail on this cruise ship again. It was a few bucks cheaper than going Carnival or Royal, but it is not worth it. If this your first cruise, you might enjoy it. If you have ever cruised before, you will be sadly disappointed. I was happy to get off the ship, get a good meal, and have an English conversation. PLUS, we went on spring break, and it was nearly 80% elderly/at least middle aged foreigners. Where are all the college students? And nearly forgot, the night life... Horrible. The DJ refused to play any decent, recent music. He only played music that was at least 10 years old, when we were the only ones in the club. There were 4 of us, and he wouldn't change the music and was the biggest tool of a DJ I've ever seen. Costa theirselves has also been quite rude on my dealings with my items that they threw away....

Horrible Cruiseline by LisaW96051004

Sail date: /
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean

I would not recommend Costa Cruiseline!!! No wonder why I have never heard of the cruiseline before. Spend the extra money and travel with Carnival or any other than Costa!!! Definately will never book with Costa again!!

great Cruise by Carol13

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We had the Best time ever on this cruise. The staff was all accommodating and there to make our trip exceptional. The entertainment was better than we have ever seen on a cruise ship --- and there were different entertainments each night. I laughed every night at the antics of the Cruise Customer "Animators" -- those in charge of getting people involved in different activities. There were 6 lounges each with their own styles of music and entertainers This is definitely a European experience (without leaving the Caribbean) . We were surrounded by different cultures and languages and enjoyed learning how to communicated with those from other countries. We found that we could enjoy people and have fun even when we did not speak the same language. The food was very European but we also enjoyed opportunity to try new things. Portions were small but the variety was plentiful. And when you are eating a 6 course dinner you don't really need large courses. There were always the buffets available if you wanted more to eat. I also liked that the ship and staff didn't push us to drink all the time. The Drinks were there if you wanted to buy them but you could go into the lounges and enjoy the entertainments without being made to feel you had to buy drinks all the time This was the best cruise ever

Enjoyable Cruise by MelanieC6

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I have never been on a cruise before this one, but I really enjoyed it. I think the staff was all very friendly and helpful. It was very clean and they did their best to keep everybody informed and entertained. I would recomend this cruise to family's, however if you were looking for a party ship, you should look elsewhere.

It was good by SamuelM1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I like the destinations, food and the crew. It was fun, but they should improve in long time that we were to wait to get dinner in the restaurant, the short time in the shore in each island and the few activities over all in the days that we have to spend in the cruise.

Great Relaxing Cruise! by PattyN42751117

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The ship was nice and had a unique European flair. It was neat to hear all of the Italian onboard, and their were more foreign passengers than American...that was interesting too. It is not as much of a party ship as others I have been on, and seemed to be more geared towards mature cruisers and families.

Cruising the Caribbean by JoyL1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The ship was beautiful, our room was spacious and very nice. I was disappointed in the food, the meals were bland, the deserts were not quality at all, the buffet was the same foods and deserts daily. The quality of the deck grill hamburgers and etc., were pretty bad. I had purchased a CD for $75.00 of all the pictures taken of my husband and myself and was told by 2 of the photographers that I could take the CD to WalMart, Kmart, etc and they would print off my pictures with NO license agreement. Totally false, now I have a useless CD and no pictures of us.

Non Stop Fun by KathleenB2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was a fantastic vacation. The enterainment at the pool in the afternoons was so much fun and the Carribean night was awesome. If you want to play tennis, which we did, be aware that it is not a full size court so it's not the real deal but still fun to volley on a ship. Also b ring your own racquets and balls so you can play any time. The food was a little disappointing - good but not great - bland sauces and odd entree selections. We had a great vacation.

Not my favorite cruise by KenH6

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean - Western

While the ship was beautiful, the trip was smooth and the crew was helpful and friendly my biggest complaint was the food. I'm not saying it was bad but it was not to my liking. Maybe because it was true Italian not the American Italian that I am use to. I would have liked to have seen more variety in the food. After all this was a Caribbean cruise.
