“We sailed out of Fort Lauderdale on the Costa Fortuna...”

Written on: 25/04/2010 by Stephen Mellor (1 review written)

We sailed out of Fort Lauderdale on the Costa Fortuna to cruise the caribbean and returned 7 days later to enable mostly US citizens to leave the ship and to pick up mainly Europeans for the remainder of the 24 day cruise. The first 7 days was fantastic, but after the US passengers disembarked the food quality was inferior to that of the 1st week. Costa also increased the on board prices by circa 40% by changing the currency from US dollars to Euros. In fact what they did was to change the $… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2010

had a good trip . ship was clean and the housekeeping staff were excellent as were the young men & women serving us in the various dining rooms. Bravo to each & everyone of them. Cabin Was well Equipped and comfortable.
However buyer beware in regards to shore excursions purchased on the ship.
They are expensive for what they are and we feel that we were totally "ripped off" on a tour that was recommended by staff on the tour desk in Manila. We complained to the tour director on return to ship… Read Full Review

“OK- I am going to be very straight forward- don't...”

Written on: 02/02/2010

OK- I am going to be very straight forward- don't mistake anything for attitude- just the facts, the way I experienced them.

Accomodations- fair-
The steward was lovely. Clearly she only had so much control- she tended to us as if she were our live in maid. The bed was made daily, clothes put away (thanks), however; the linens were old, tough, and the sheets were never changed. Fresh towels were delivered daily, (face cloths were hit and miss). I am American and understand that… Read Full Review

“Don't get me wrong this is a good ship, but it could...”

Written on: 23/10/2009

Don't get me wrong this is a good ship, but it could be better, if you got rid of the smoking below decks in the bars and the cabins,even if you have one side of the bar no smoking it still comes over your side, my God what a health risk, especially children and those that have poor health. Come on Costa lets get to the 21st century and ban the smoking below decks, it is only a short walk to the upper deck and then you can smoke to your hearts content.

One other item that got to me is that… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2009 by Charlie Chops01 (1 review written)

I think that it is very apt that I start by saying that someone I spoke to commented and said that if you have not been on a cruise before then the Costa Allegra was ok, but if you have then it is sadly falling short of the mark.
The first thing I noticed is the draconian attitude towards smokers or non smokers, as it appears that they are of the belief that signs indicating that it is ok to smoke on one particular side of a bar is ok whilst it is not on the other, maybe someone should have… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/06/2009 by AnnAllan (1 review written)

Too many wingers on the review sites sent us off on our cruise with a bit of a heavy heart. BUT happy to say the wingers are in the minority as we had a fantastic time!. Itinery was perfect , the Costa Allegra ship was clean, cabins perfectly adequate, plenty of good food
( and a new English chef who made sure that the food was good) Lots of activities if you wanted to join in and quiet places if you didnt. Happy hour from 11-12 and 5.30 to 7.00 meant there was plenty of time for cheap… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2009

Hi Ann, me and my boyfriend are on the cruise that leaves 22nd May - I contacted Costa and the currency on board is EUR. They also recommended you change up local currency for all countries visited before you board as currency is limited on board?
<br/>I must say after reading all these awful reviews - i am not looking forward to it too much. We have had a nigtmare already with Costa & Virgin so not too hopeful of the dream holiday we thought we had booked ......

Written on: 24/01/2009

Food on the Costa Cruise was varied and good, staff excellent,always cheerful. Good itinery round South China sea. A clean well organised ship. Drinks were expensive, £5 for a small beer. Entertainment seemed mostly poor or very poor. Trips ashore seemed grossly expensive, little less than £50 for a local bus trip. 5 euro per day service charge… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2009 by groovyhasbean (1 review written)

Bartenders, Barwaiters, cabin maids, food waiters and english speaking host were very friendly and provided exceptional service at all times. The animation team were very friendly and good at their job. The food was bland and of poor quality. The drinks were very expensive. The cruise itinerary was excellent and although the food was terrible and the drinks blew our budget I enjoyed my time on the Costa Allegra… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2008

Overall very disappointed with our cruise of the Far East on the Allegra. The food was of a very poor standard have you ever tried cold strawberry and banana soup for a starter or chunks of mutton served up as roast lamb to name but a few. The buffet was bread rolls cheese and ham with a few cakes and pizza every day, they offered a surprise buffet one night but the only surprise was they had moved it. We were hoping for more of an oriental menu as we were in the far east. The entertainment was… Read Full Review
