After visiting different message boards online, I was a little worried about this cruise line. However the service on board and the ship itself were just amazing. It was an incredible value. Food was hit or miss, geared more to a European taste.
I would not hesitate to take another cruise with Costa if the price is right.

Food and Dining

Buffet hours were a little different from Carnival and the like, but once we got the schedule down we were good.

Staff did a wonderful job. It was next to impossible to get my seven year old to leave the kids club.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Incredible staff. Everyone always had a smile on their faces and I was always amazed with the ease they could go from one language to another to communicate with anyone on board.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Gorgeous decor. Felt like I was in an art gallery. Discovered new areas and details up to the moment I stepped off the ship to disembark.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Lots of shelves in bathroom, bedroom drawer and cabinet space a little crammed for a family of four.

Pros: Staff, Price, Decor

Cons: Food

Recommends Costa Atlantica? Yes!
