Costa Victoria

7 Night Greek Isles & Croatia (Venice Roundtrip)

Sail Date: July 24, 2006

Ship: Costa Victoria

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was very nicely layed out, the restaurants and sittings were very well organised,there were never long lines or long waits for anything. However, for the size ship I was expecting a bigger gym, better pool area and more facilities for kids. This was the ony disappointing aspect of the ship. The food was generally very good and varied, specially the buffets for lunch. While drinks were available at all times from the different bars, hot beverages like tea and coffee were not available at all times and this was inconvenient. All the staff and crew were very friendly and helpful at all times. The night shows were excellent and the ports of call could not be better. I also liked that they ship had environmentally friendly programmes, like for reduced waste and fresh water conser vation. We had a very good time.
