Costa Pacifica Traveler Reviews



Costa Pacifica

Traveler Type: Family w/older children | Room Type: Interior | Experience: 4-6 cruises

The Costa Pacifica cruise itinerary is spectacular and the cruise personnel were very helpful and pleasant.  Breakfast and lunch menu items were the same each day which was a little disappointing as we are use to a wide variety of foods at each meal on other cruise liners.  Over all, the value of this cruise was very good and we were satisfied.



Crucero en el Mediterraneo

Traveler Type: Couple | Room Type: Oceanview | Experience: 2-3 cruises

   Muy bonitas las cabinas, muy amplias y limpias.  El servicio muy bueno de parte de toda la tripulación.  Las excursiones muy bonitas pero algo caras, si las adquiere junto con el crucero ya no tiene que preocuparse durante el viaje.  Lo único que me parecio fuera de lugar es la venta de los refrescos gaseosos, que no van incluidos en las comidas, cada refresco cuesta 3.50 Euros; las bebidas que si van incluidas son: agua, té, café, leche, jugo.  La comida en general buena, pero muy estrictos en los horarios, retiraban todo el bufet y si alguien llegaba fuera de ese horario ya no encontraba nada.  Los shows del teatro muy buenos, los bailarines de las coreografías son excelentes, dominan todo tipo de bailes, pero la pareja de cantantes que se presento casi cada día, no sirven, no es que esten desafinados, sino que no transmiten ninguna emoción cuando cantan, como que les falta alma o algo.    Fuera de esos detalles todo muy bonito y recomendable.



Great experience, price includes the basics.

Traveler Type: Couple | Room Type: Balcony | Experience: 2-3 cruises

It was a honeymoon holiday for us.  We flew to Barcelona to board this cruise.  The port is close to town but the cruise was parked at the outermost terminal.  Glad that we took a taxi from Parallel to the boarding gate.  (Do not attempt to take a bus and walk even from La Ramblas... it is very far walk regardless if you have luggages.)   This cruise embark and disbark at almost every port.  This is very interesting.  We met a few other North Americans who boarded in Barcelona.  But apparently, Savona and Marseille are the most popular embark/disbark ports for locals.   We had a Balcony cabin, it was very comfortable.  Generous bedroom size and bathroom size.   The population on the cruise is mostly European families.  All announcements were made in at least 4 languages including English.   When I was onboard, I was non-stop bombarded with "Book your excursion now!" information.  No one forced us to book anything, but I feel that there were too much onboard-selling... it was on announcements, cabin TV, swimming pool screens... non-stop looping.  I managed to visit and navigate all the ports on my own without any excursions.  But I have heard good reviews on the excursions from other passengers.   Most ports have excursions organized by local companies, look at those if you have time.  Much better pricing.   Drink packages, upgraded dining, jewlery sale, spa specials... these are in my face all the time!  Not complaining, but for budgeting.  Just beware that the cabin price only includes the basics and be ready to spend more money onboard!   The only rough day (I actually puked and stayed in bed all day) was the "At Sea" day.   Overall, it was a great experience.  Great staff, great food, great shows, great ports.
