Anyone been on Costa Fortuna recently, please?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone been on the Fortuna recently, please, as I would really like to know about your experiences.


Are there still minibars in the cabins? Are they stocked with anything? 

Can you still get room service? I am particularly interested as we like this service for a simple continental breakfast.

What general impression did you have about cleanliness eg.cabin cleanliness?

What did you think of the restaurants and, of course, the food!?



We have chosen to go on Costa Fortuna as although the new ships like Smerelda and Toscana, are beautiful and very appealing in many ways, we much prefer the old smaller ships and in particular we find the noise from the large open atriums on these huge ships too much for us. We last were on the Fortuna in 2018 and we really enjoyed it.


Thanks so much for any feedback.

We disembarked from Costa Fortuna yesterday. We also did a trip on Fortuna in November and a few more several years ago when the ship was newer. In November we had a comfortable balcony cabin in the middle of deck 7. This trip we had a terrible balcony cabin on the rear of deck 6.

As soon as we entered the most recent cabin, we immediately noticed the bed sloped, so the mattress was higher at the bottom end than the top. Each of the 2 mattresses also dipped in the middle as they are worn out. At first this didn't cause us any problems but, after a few days, we both had aching bodies, especially our spines, so we started taking pain killers.

Now we're home and, after only one night sleeping in our own bed, our backs are much better and we feel alive again.

The room service breakfast is a bargain at just 5 euros a person.

Our cabin was very clean and our steward was very good.

Here's a pic of the bed. If you look at how it lines up with the base of the window, you'll see what I mean about how the worn mattress slopes so badly.

Looking through doorways, a few of the cabins seem to have worn-out mattresses.

The cabin we had in November was fine. It was cabin 7366.

The one we've just been in was 6463. I don't recommend it, but the balcony was fab.

Thank you so much, mustafabalcony, for your postings and replies to my questions. It is greatly appreciated.


I am so sorry you had such an unpleasant experience with the sloping bed which sounds awful. I am preparing for the fact that the Fortuna is now quite old and the cabins have had an enormous amount of wear and tear.


How did you find the food and what did you think of the entertainment? Did you enjoy the cruise overall? Thank you again.
