Beautiful ship; Terrible maintenance

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Although the ship is beautiful to look at, there are many problems with it. The ventilation system does not work properly and the maintenance/repair personnel cannot fix it. The Guest Services Desk is unresponsive and is not interested in passenger comfort or satisfaction.

Pros: Decor of ship

Cons: Lack of air conditioning; apathy of guest services; poor dining room service; mediocre food

Recommends Costa Atlantica? No.

Limited activities available. Shows were not worth the wait.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Unresponsive to passenger complaints and comfort. There is a general atmosphere among the crew that they would rather be somewhere else in a different job.
Food and Dining
Main dining room service was extremely slow and the food selection was very limited. Food on the upper deck buffets was only lukewarm and was usually late in opening.
Cabin / Stateroom
The panorama suite was very nice in size and decor, with plenty of closet space, however, it could not be enjoyed, because the air conditioning did not work properly throughout the entire cruise. Repair personnel were called daily, but the problem persisted.
