Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This wa a well organized and very comfrotable shipwith lots of amenities like gym, pools, saunas, steam room etc. Spa activities were very high priced clear worth avoiding and waiting to get home for value for service.

Decor was over the top, Fellini sets up a carousel in Pompeii style. Lots of music and dance chances with enthusiastic, animated young staff.

Staff was very open, polite, caring and service oriented.

Pros: Places we went, food and staff great

Cons: a little crowded at meal times in the buffet

Recommends Costa Atlantica? Yes!

Food and Dining
Buffets were vaery varied and all good. Restaurant meals were excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Well designed. Beds could be a littlel better
Service and Staff
The best. They seemed to feel valued and worked hard and well with all th einternational passengers. Very Pleasant and caring.
Music variety was good and qualiity around ship was professional. Young, moderate sized troupe had a lot to carry in the shows but they pulled it off.
Ship Quality
Very large but very well organized.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Perfect little renaissance town. Right size, stunning architecture every where. Food ooportunites great.
Don't Miss: Franciscan Monastery
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Olympia was very beautiful with and informative and charming guide, Eugenia. Katakolon town is a rat trap in row of hugely overpriced chatchkas with a nice view of the bay.
Don't Miss: Olympia
Bari, Italy
San Nicolas church was worth the excursion
Izmir, Turkey
Ephesus is stunning and worth the trip. Spanish language tour with Reina was excellent. Mandatory stop to buy overpriced leather goods should not be mandatory as it is a waste of time for the uninterested. visit to Mary's house in mountain setting was very moving and beautiful, though brief.
Don't Miss: Ephesus
Istanbul, Turkey
Only enough time to know that more is needed. Great food and beautiful array of historic sties to visit. Some people love the bazaar. Learned about rugs under some duress. Coming away empty handed feels like a victory.
Don't Miss: Hayya Sophia
