Review summary

vegetables with meals were a bit overcooked but that is the only negative.some of our meals got mixed up and not correctly delivered.also the birthday cake i ordered was not the one received. are we now in the costa club; wasn't sure how to gain membership.or is that automatic.would like to go again on one of your cruises.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
maria santoro was wonderful and professional as she spoke to me in my distress.a tribute to herself,her family and costa.i was glad i got to meet her the next day. as i told her i never met a "bad" maria or mary.she was one more positive mary memory.

Ship Quality

staff were always cleaning something. i liked that there were toilet facilities all over the place; important for the older folks.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

we didn't eat there.the rush of taxi drivers at the gate was a bit overwhelming.the one we chose given advice of the tourist kiosk was ok.the duty free shop he guided us to,jingles, wasn't the best prices.we got "taken" when we paid $18 for a 750 ml bottle of rum.not sure about the vanilla extract either as i haven't opened it yet.better prices for booze on the ship than at that shop.we bought in the whirl of sightseeing.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
the woman at the museum shop was very pleasant and helpful.i like buying gifts made on an island and supporting local artists which i did at the museum shop.my nieghbor loved the tie i purchased for him designed and made on the island.didn't eat there either.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
someone who worked in key west was nice to walk us directly to the trolley stop.that was kind of him.we didn't eat there; did go to the church.would have been nice to see hemingway house; next time.
Don't Miss: trolley ride was very informative.

Pros: the international crowd both in cruisers and staff.

Cons: not enough computers and too expensive.
