We have just got back from a cruise around the Greek islands. My opinion is very mixed about the whole experience!
On the plus side, the staff were generally very good. Attentive, friendly, helpful. The excursion into Athens in particular was very good and well worth the money. We thought the food was excellent, although the lunch time menu lacked variety. Generally, the cruise was very well organised, although you often felt like a sheep being herded.
Unfortunately, there were quite a few... (read more)

We had a good holiday, met some very friendly people nice places to visit and if we had known about airport wait would have sorted something out e.g trip round rome. Also Italians do not like queing and can be a bit pushy but I think that's just their way. The main gripe was leaving boat at nine but not flying to six o'clock some even later. It was as if they said: "you've had your holiday now go!". (read more)

Overall a great holiday with the Costa Victoria, and we would go again! Service fantastic! The crew work flat out to ensure a good holiday is had by all.

This was our 5th cruise, but the 1st and last with Costa.
We were locked out of our cabin on-board the Costa Victoria Mediterranean cruise. It took two hours and a lot of running around on our part to find help.
We missed going off to the island of Mykenos due to the lack of help from the staff.
We were told that security were all busy with disembarkation and we would have to wait. It didn't bother them that we wanted to disembark too.
Security finally came and the maintenance men broke... (read more)

Sailed from Venice 30 October 2005. First experience of cruising with Costa Cruises, Costa Victoria. Will be going again next year.
From the time of arrival at Venice airport, everything was organised to make the trip as easy and stress free as possible. Costa staff took our cases to a Merc or the transfer to our hotel (we booked two nights in Venice before the cruise), then took them to the hotel. When we left the hotel Costa collected the cases from the hotel and delivered them to the... (read more)
