Costa’s Military Discount

Costa’s official word on military cruise discounts is “they are offered on select sailings”. But unofficially, we are having a hard time finding any discounted rates for the military on any Costa Cruises. If and when they do exist: active, reserve, retired and spouses of the military member, all qualify for the discount, which is then applied to the rate paid by everyone in their cabin.

However, Costa already provides such a good cruising experience at such an affordable price – even without an additional military discount from them, they will often be the lowest-priced option for the cruise you prefer.

Fortunately, the military discount from us here at Military Cruise Deals applies to every Costa ship and sailing! Our online cruise search and booking engine is configured to add this substantial military discount to every Costa cruise!

So go ahead and compare our online rates to anyone else: we’re always less than Travelocity, Orbitz, USAA, Expedia, Vacations To Go and the cruise line directly! Then feel free to book the cruise directly online or Contact Us for assistance.

Military Spouses Reviews of Costa – April, 2017

Heather Stinson

We just returned from our third cruise. This was our first time on Costa (the Diadems). I originally booked because I received a phenomenal deal, but then was skeptical because of things I had read online. I will tell you, most of the negative things I read were WRONG!

Firstly, we are a family of five, so our previous experience was with two cabins. Costa’s cabin for five was a HUGE selling point, and it worked so well for us.

We had an oceanview room with two upper bunks, and they rolled another bed in for under one of the top bunks. The cabin also had two bathrooms-one with a toilet, shower, and sink; the other had a bath/shower and sink. It worked perfectly for our family (our two teenage girls like to primp).

The staff on board was very helpful, despite what we heard. I will say they were different. By which I mean they weren’t “in your face” pushing services on you; but if you needed something, they did everything possible to help.

Booking excursions was so easy. The ship had multiple kiosks on board where I could choose and print my tickets.

The food was good-typical European cruise food, on par with our previous experiences. There was a hot breakfast served in the restaurants every morning, and euro breakfast at the buffet. Every night, there were multiple options for dinner, and the restaurant food was delicious.

Every night on board there was a show and every day there were multiple events to keep cruisers of all ages entertained. My teens liked their “teen club”, and my five year old had a good time in the “Squok Club.”

Overall, I would say Costa is an excellent value, especially for those who don’t want to spend a fortune for a memorable experience! When booking our next cruise, we won’t hesitate to go with Costa.

Spouse Reviews for Costa Cruises

Ericka Panlaqui-Zuñiga

My husband and I with our 2 yr old went on a cruise with Costa exactly a year ago. It was our very first cruise.

I’ve read negative reviews about Costa Cruises but we still went for it because we were given an awesome deal. I was very skeptical at first since it was our first time cruising with a toddler in tow. But man oh man! I was soooo impressed with everything since day one!

We were in Costa Delizioza, and had a blast the whole time, we didn’t even want to debark from the ship! The food wasn’t bad, there’s a buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There were days we opted for the sit-down restaurant; the service, crew, and food did not disappoint. We did the formal dinner almost every night and were treated like a king and queen by our designated server.

Our room was cleaned and immaculate every time we came back to it. They had live shows and programs going on everyday. My daughter even got to meet Peppa pig and had lunch with her! How cool was that! We didn’t have any issues the whole time.

The only thing I would suggest that they could improve on is the way we had to get in line to get a ticket for some stuff and when we had to pick up our passports at the end of the trip it was a little hassle. Overall it was an amazing experience, we always recommend it to our friends and we can’t wait to get on our next cruise with Costa!

We just returned from our cruise on Costa Diadema. This was our first cruise ever with any cruise line for my family. I had set my expectations pretty low because of all the negative reviews. I would have to say without a doubt this cruise was great!!!

The food was delicious! The buffet for breakfast and lunch had a big variety of Italian/European dishes, with pretty displays of fresh fruit.

The sit-down dinner meal was a nice selection of finer dining food and it all tasted great! We did the restaurant dining once for breakfast to order hot eggs, but we preferred the buffet breakfasts mostly because it is a quicker option in the morning.

We only did one boat excursion. In Marseille we went on the Aix en Provence tour. It was a nice walking tour with some free time at the end to explore/shop. I do wish we had more time there but it was only a 1/2 day tour option.

At all the other ports we explored on our own and all the ports had information booths available with maps and some with last-minute tours that you could go on. Also, we pre-booked a Rome all day tour with All around Italy which was great!

The staff and service were very helpful when you asked and needed it. They were never pushy or constantly asking if you needed something.

The cruise ship was super clean. They were always cleaning it, I saw deck crews cleaning throughout the day.

It is a full European cruise experience, which you should expect since you are cruising in Europe. I would cruise with Costa again a heartbeat! We are already talking about next spring break.

A Costa cruise starts off with a Buon Viaggio (bon voyage) celebration, ends with an Italian street festival, and consists of all sorts of Italian-type joys in between, including tossing pizza dough at Italian cooking classes. That’s amore!
