Costa Fascinosa

June 2014 - Costa Fascinosa to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Too big and difficult for English speaking guests

It was way too big and difficult for English speaking guests.  Of the 4000 guests fewer than 300 were English speaking.  This made participating in the on board events difficult.  There was no advance preparation for any excursion.  No history or what to see was given.  The push was to take the excursions they offered which were very costly.  The food was attractively presented but  lacked taste.  The staff was generally helpful but were unable to give personal service.  My luggage was lost and they did provide me with some essentials but did not follow up on locating my luggage very well.

barbbjenkins's Tips

Dubrovnik, Croatia - Again, it would have been helpful to have some background and info on what we should see. The English speaking liaison had only been there once.
Santorini, Greece - The excursion is a must here. Not enough time to do it on your own.
Venice, Italy - Stayed in a great hotel the last night in Venice. Peggy Guggenheim Museum great.
Bari, Italy - Nothing to do here and shops were closed between 2-4 when ship was in port.
Corfu, Greece - British Cemetery. Grounds keeper was an elderly Brit who regaled us with relevant stories.
