  1. Thanks so much for those. We are about to board on Saturday, from Port Louis, Mauritius. Last on her in 2012. Hopefully we'll enjoy it just as much. Did you enjoy the ship CASPALL?

    Costa Victoria

    Hi Caspall. That is bad luck you can't post your pictures. I've noticed on some posts passengers are saying there is no water provided at the dining table and it must be purchased. Was it like that in your case? Though to be honest we normally buy a drinks package of 6 wines/7 waters and its more than enough. Any info on that or anything would be appreciated.

    kremorlorraine, I agree as long as its clean and the food is good (my husband likes to eat!), then as for the rest, we'll make our own fun. Enjoy your cruise down from Savona.

    Costa Victoria

    Hello Dizzy....OMG its been a long time and yes we are 'still around' LOL. We've done a bit of cruising over the last few years, but the last Costa was Deliziosa in 2013. We are excited to be on Costa again after so long. We are both well, thank you.
  5. Hi lul You should perhaps post this on the Costa Roll Call as you'd possibly get more replies. We almost meet up with you. We leave Mauritius on the 28th October, probably when you disembark. We last sailed on Victoria in 2012, Singapore to Shanghai...probably same as you and we enjoyed it very much. Was a bit worried with recent reviews about the ship looking old and tired, but your reviews seem very positive. Enjoy.

    Thank you Caryl, I like your heading 'fear not'...... We aren't fussy people so as long as its clean and we have good food, entertainment and good company, we'll be right. :)

    Costa Victoria

    Thanks for you reply elle712. We used to be Gold/Pearl members and got a good discount on the drinks packages in the past, but we've now lost that privilege not having cruised Costa for a few years. So you embark the day we disembark. I agree with your thoughts though. We tend to just look at the good points and ignore the not so good......as long as the food is good (which my husband enjoys) and the entertainment and the islands, we'll be happy. :)
  8. We are cruising on the Victoria on the 28th October in the Indian Ocean (Maritius, Seychelles, Reuinion etc). Our last cruise on Costa Victoria was in Asia in May 2012. I've read several reviews since our last booking, and most of them not so good....the ship is old and tired etc etc. I know its certainly not one of the newest glitzy Costa ships and the cabins are small etc. BUT can anybody who has recently been on her give me a review..eg the quality of the food, the entertainment, the service, the staff? Do they still have the water and wine packages available? With thanks.
