Clifton's review of Costa Cruises, Costa Romantica

★☆☆☆☆

“Having just completed a cruise on the Costa Romantica...”

Written on: 12/02/2008 by Clifton (1 review written)

Good Points
The ship was clean and the service staff friendly.

Bad Points
Very Noisy

General Comments
Having just completed a cruise on the Costa Romantica from Dubai to Muscat, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and back to Dubai I would seriously have to consider whether I would venture on to a Costa ship again. Although the ship was clean and the service staff friendly and considerate, the overall management needs to be re-focused as the day to day management of the ship was not up to standard. The self service restaurant has plastic tables, plastic plates and plastic glasses coupled with cold food,. hence the ship should be called Costa Plastica. I also found the ship to be extremely noisy due to the din created by staff extending the access ramps whilst in port coupled with the noise generated by the engines whilst at sea.

In my opinion Costa Romantica should be avoided.

I agree with every word you have written only we were on the Luminosa doing the same trip. You forget to mention that all the ports of call are commercial container ports with nothing pretty about them, unless you like containers that is.
