Military Spouses reviews of Costa - April, 1017
Firstly, we are a family of five, so our previous experience has been 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, 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 (two teenage girls who like to primp).
The staff on board was very helpful, despite what we heard. I will say they were different-just meaning 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 chose 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 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.
The food was delicious! The buffet for breakfast and lunch had a big variety of Italian/European dishes, with pretty of fresh fruit.
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.
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 boat was super clean. They were always cleaning it, I saw deck crew 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!
