Costa Victoria Questions ???

Recommended Posts

Hi we are travelling on Costa Victoria on a 3 week cruise. We have quite a few sea days (12), and we will have hot weather I believe, so want to ask quesions about the pools etc...   We have only done one Costa cruise before on Neo Romantica.  The suite experience was not what we expected.  The private pool deck at the rear of the ship was extra charge and we didnt get a "club" dining room - just a reserved part of the main restaurant.  Also the spa day was a no goer because the spa had broken down.  The small Jacuzzi on deck were like pea soup 😉 and full of kids.

 

I understand that we get a free spa day and it has to be on a port day - that is ok.  I tried to buy a 7 day spa pass but was told that I have to buy this onboard.  Can anyone tell me do I get to pick my own days for the pass ?   

 

Is there a separate sun deck on Victoria ?    is it also extra charge for suite guests ? what facilities does it have ?

 

Any help would be appreciated 🙂 thanks

Well Costa seem to change rules weekly, however as a suite guest you should be in the club dining room which is separate from MDR, however we have not been on the Victoria since it's last re-fit so it might even be a burger & Pizza bar now.

 

Worth looking at the deck plans as although they did have a separate pool area aft for suite & gold members back in the day, with the new rankings & perk change's not sure if it is still available.

 

Suite guests in the 'Med' still get to eat in the club restaurant., & get  drinks package and priority boarding.

If you look at the video on the Victoria, on the Costa website we see a menu « Club Ristorante ».  I presume this is the suite restaurant...  We will be on the Victoria for 28 days starting in Venice next October.

We start 12th October in Venice 🙂 then go through to the Maldives - we are leaving to come home in Male 😉 - someone has to work to pay for all this lol.  I think we may be on the same cruise.

We were on Victoria for a week last May. 

The Club restaurant is the nicest one of all the Costa ships we have been on. Its just a pity it’s one side of the ship as they turned the other half into. Burger /pizza restaurant 

Its very nicely furnished and the food was the best we have ever had on any cruise ship.

Victoria is an older ship and doesn’t have the glitz and glamour the newer ones have, but we loved our 7 night cruise on her. There was a very friendly atmosphere too.

The front of the ship on the outdoor deck has that green fake grass carpet stuff (yuk)and some pod things to sunbathe on.

Sorry I can’t remember if there’s a special area for suite guests. 

Here are some pics for you. The first 4 are all club restaurant

Ship 101 - lets make sure we catch up - I will change my picture so you know what to expect lol 😉 I love visitors so maybe your next trip can be an Australian one and I can show you around Tassie 🙂

 

I am chatting to some other Aussies on facebook who are on the same cruise as us.  And a South African lady.  I have started a roll call but no one else has joined.  Have you booked any excursions yet ?
