Our first cruise by MerleR

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

The ship was nothing special or exciting. We needed a wheelchair and found it impossible to get one so getting to the shows and dining room on the other end of the ship was extremely difficult (our dining room was closed for breakfast and lunch bacause a special group was using it) There was little or no sugar-free desserts on the buffet for diabetics. The Lido deck buffet became boring.

Not bad cruise by NatachaD

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

I would like to say that I am very dissapointed that I did not have access to all the ship portions of the ship was reserved for the Kosherica restaurants, pools, bars and elevators. When I reserved I thought I paid the full price and not half price.... I demand a explanation and refund for the portion of the ship WE DID NOT HAVE ACCESS TO

Disappointing cruise by RichardW5

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

We were quite dissapointed that a specialty cruise group (Kosherica) were given such special treatment on our cruise.The group had one dining room reserved for breakfast and lunch. They had exclusive use of some deck areas in the evening and refused to let us pass through to reach other areas of the ship.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Some of the staff was not helpful, no one could make a decision about several customer service issues. Never again on Costa Cruises for us.

So much to do! by TiffanyW

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

The Costa Fortuna was a beautiful ship! The staff was the best part: they were all very friendly, accommodating, and willing to go above and beyond. The food was excellent. I also enjoyed the ports of call. The islands were beautiful! However, the pillows were terrible and we were charged a "service fee" at the end of our cruise that we were not previously told about. We had to go to the front desk to have it removed.

Not so wonderful. I expected more. by JoseT3

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

Tv programing was very poor and if you wanted to watch any movie you had to pay for it The food was not up to par for an Italian ship. Not enough personnel in the gangway during embarkation. Took a very long time.

Great ship if you don't have to eat by EdithH

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

The ship itself was very nice. The rooms were a good size and clean (but don't expect toiletries, mints on your pillow, towel animals or any extra touches). The public rooms were very nice although they kept the ship uncomfortably hot (no need for a shawl in any rooms including the dining rooms and the theator). The 'European style' of cruising translated into a major lack of organization (no such thing as waiting your turn in line as the European guests just push in front of you at any time). The food was poor except for the breads and pastas. The service in our restaraunt (Raffeal) was the worst I have ever seen although we heard that the other resteraunt was fine. The buffet was of poor quality and selection and again no such thing as organization existed. The specialty restaraunt had great service but the food was nothing special. The Casino was great, love the coins versus the card in the slot machines it makes winning more fun. Tendering ashore and disembarking were unorganized disasters and took twice as long as on any other cruise we have been on. I wouldn't want to do another Costa Fortuna cruise, but I might try another Costa ship (although it wouldn't be my first, second, or third choice).

Fair but not great by MiguelR3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Costa Fortuna / Destination: Caribbean

The service provided in restaurants and buffets was real bad. I asked in customer service if they sold future cruises in the ship and they did not know what I was talking about. The A/C in public areas was real bad. The shows and Music was great. The food was ok.

Wonderful cruise! by StephanieH2

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

I thought it was a wonderful cruise. There were many activities and the layout of the boat, however a bit confusing, was fun to explore. I would have liked a bigger pool or a different pool, sunbathing area layout, but in general, I liked the ship a lot. Eating at the same table every night allowed me to become close to those I dined with. I liked the way things were set up and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was well treated and entertained and would do Costa Fortuna again.

Wondeful way to see the Greek Islands by NicoleT34329742

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

My overall impression of the ship was very good. It was a clean ship with a polite staff. They had specific hosts/hostesses for each of the different languages, to keep you well informed of all the ship happenings of the day. Most of the ship's crew spoke multiple languages - so you could approach anyone with any of your questions/concerns.

Venice/Greece Dream Cruise by IvanU

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

The ship was great and new. The entertainment and ffod flavor and quality was one of our worst experinces in cruises. The "smoking everywhere" was horrible, we could not get away from it...we don't smoke.

an interesting (mixed) experience by Nellag

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

I am European, but lived in US for a long time. I did not want to believe negative reviews, but I was wrong. The ship is great and clean, the locations are awesome, but the food, food service and entertainment - all definitely needs improvement. The assigned restaurant sitting was rarely on time and they kept us waiting by the closed doors for at least 1/2 hour every time. Then English speaking diners were served after Italian speaking were served, so we often ended up being served desert when others were leaving. It was sort of funny, and we thought that maybe we just feel that way, however other English speaking felt the same. And the food itself looked like it was just unfrozen. This is not what you expect of Italian cuisine! Entertainment - with all the bravado about being Italian ship - most of the songs performed were very old American songs. We would so much more enjoyed contemporary Italian music. It is time to update the repertoire. Another annoying thing was that a lot of kids were present in all the pools on all decks and that kind of limited my enjoyment of that part of cruising. I have nothing against kids, but usually they are allowed only in one pool where they can splash and jump and go nuts if they want to. Rules were not enforced there at all. But with all said, the trip was fun and we loved dance lessons on the deck and all of the well organized activities. The activities coordinators were great. And great organized ship unboarding/boarding effort helped tremendously to enjoy our stops at all locations. Yes, and people were dressed much nicer than you would see on other cruises. That was definitely pleasant.

A Basic Into to the Eastern Med by JonG3

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

Overall the ship was pretty nice, but we had a suite room on the 8th deck rear corner with a huge balcony -- so we expected something nice.

An interesting adventure by JohnS8

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

Let me start by saying we had a great time. The ship was clean and well cared for. Our cabin was a good size and the cabin stewart was attentive. The food was just ok. What really sold us on this trip was the ports of call. Italy, Greece and Croatia. The down side was the rude Italians. They refuse to wait in line, constantly cut you off, and are not the least bit friendly. Even the crew was complaining. We were two of only about 60 Americans on the ship.
