costa cruises itinerary change?$#@

Jump to last reply

Has anyone else had problems with Costa changing their itinerary/ports of call. I am booked for a trip from HK in Feb. and just by chance I logged into their site and found that we are no longer stopping at Sanya and Halong Bay - but two ports I have never heard of in Taiwan...... On emailing them, they said they decided to change because its the new hot spot..... what about the likes/dislikes of the PAYING passengers!!
I know its in their general conditions that they can change the itinerary but it says due to weather or navigational matters or safety of passengers etc. - not because they bloodywell want to. It seems like a con, get people to book on for the nice ports of call and when the cruise is full, take them somewhere that's cheaper for them or whatever!!

Like most people, I booked because the ports of call appealed to me. They also said that all south pacific region travel agents had been advised and this is not true because I checked with my t/agent.

I has taken the shine off our trip and if we can, we will cancel, and spend the time elsewhere however I doubt they will refund us - Anyway I intend to have my say and tell them what I think about it. Its not what we paid for..

Would value any comments?
