Great cruise all around by MaryA52

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean

Very clean ship, nicely decorated Italian theme. We were there over Christmas and they had a Christmas buffet with an ice sculpture with octopus legs hanging from it; unique stuff like that. Excellent food and service in the dining room. They also had a couple theme nights (toga party) that involved the people. Entertainment was great in the theatre - opera singer and jazz singer plus numerous grand shows. Gym was fabulous with good equipment, steam and sauna room, jacuzzi in the gym area.

A first time family cruise!!!!!!!! by JoelS1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This was our first cruise and we were just over excited to be cruising, but when we got on the ship it was much more than we could have imagined. The ship was very clean and were greeted by the most excited crew ever. The overall ship was decorated with the most beautiful decor. We were really amazed at how so much can go on at one time on this ship. Beautiful ship!!!!!!

A very international cruise by MarkR76669024

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We went over the Thanksgaving week as is a family tradition. We have been on many "U.S" carriers and we were enticed by the Eurpoean flair and kids sail free offer from Costa. It certainly was different that what you would get on the larger cruise lines. The ship itself was nice and well laid out. The intermixed smoking areas were a surprise and not appreciated. The kids area needs inmprovement but with only a total of 150 kids on board it was certainly not the priority.

the world's most horriffic cruise lines by LindaW18

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

the ship was clean. the captain shouldn't be allowed to drive a car let alone a ship. the waiters would get fired at McDonalds and the cooks .....well I think they used a campfire and one skillet....NO skills.....and they nor the servers cared....the head waiter was arrogant and only interested in young chicks !! We had NO air in our room, made several inquiries; please note we were very low key & nice about the whoe trip while we were there...that is why it has taken me so long to respond, I have just been festering.

Not worth it! by KimberlyL

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The ship was beautiful and kept very clean. The staff was typically rude and unable to communicate unless you spoke 5 languages other than english. They could speak: German, Italian, Spanish, French and maybe Dutch. The food staff was disappointing. The desserts left you sad. The ice cream machine (when it was on) would often produce very running ice cream or nothing at all. The variety of all, to include auidence participation, was just not inviting.

The most fun we ever had on a cruise! by RuthR3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We enjoyed the cosmopolitan atmosphere, with mostly Europeans and enough Americans. This was a Caribbean cruise, so suprised to see so many European, but loved the ambience. We're seasoned cruisers and realize we're not at home and can't expect it to be like the local country club. The food was fine and the waiters efficient. Enjoyed the piano bar often, The occasional roving musicians and dancers were a lot of fun but the whipped cream on the cake was the Toga Night, the last night. We got into the spirit and enjoyed the laughs and contests. You could tell that there were a lot of people who had done this before on this ship because of the golden crowns, bracelets and other accessories they added to the basic sheets provided by the ship. Such a ball! (Actually, our cruise was in 2005 - hope it hasn't changed!)

A trip very much enjoyed! by JuneP1

Sail date: / Traveled as:
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Mostly, everything was well organized, food was good, service very nice, our cabin was more spacious than I expected. Amoung the English speaking guests, there was a lot of camplaints that there was too much foreign language and not enough English. I, However, felt that we were kept sufficiently informed.

Interesting cruise by SusanA6

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

The ship was beautiful and clean! Our balcony stateroom was lovely. The shipboard activities were poor - the shows well below par compared to other cruises we've been on. We were unprepared for everything on board being in euros! With $1 US equal to E1.40, this was significant.

Baltic Criuse on Costa Atlantica by AndreaS3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

We chose the cruise for the date and ports of call. We had a good experience. Overall the service and food were good. There were many bars and lounges, but not many restaurant options. The dinners were excellent in terms of choices, quality and service.

trip of our life by SheilaP2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

My husband and I recently went on the Atlantica for their eastern seaboard cruise. We have travelled extensively for years [all-inclusives] independant, and cruises] and we both agreed that this was one of our best trips ever. We loved the ports of call and got to see places that we had only dreamed of seeing. The staff for the most part were very friendly and professional. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the ship, especially in this time of flu season. It made us feel relaxed about coming down with some bug or other. The cabins were quite roomy even our inside cabin. We liked the fact that they had happy hour every day, but felt that 11:00 AM was way too early for the first one! When you are heading off for land tours, you really don't need to have a drink first!!! There were some negative things too. For instance, all the Canadian and Americans heartily disliked being charged in Euros in their own countries! I doubt if they are charged Canadian or American in Europe!! It almost felt like an insult. The front desk people were not the best for sure at handling problems. In fact, we had a problem and they just upset us further. Not a good impression on our first cruise with Costa. In fact, we wrote about not receiving our ship board credit, and they haven't bothered to answer us. Not too impressed there! They catered too much to the European clientele with the entertainment. eg. the music for dancing, and the lounge music. The North Americans definitely felt like outsiders at times. [We talked to many people about this] Would we go with Costa again. Yes, because we felt that it was good value for our money and it had enough positive things about it. if you are young, I would hesitate to go on the trip we took because it was geared towards a much older crowd. Sometimes we felt too young and we are 61 and 64!!!!

Costa Atlantica by Steve3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Western

It was a very clean ship - people constantly were washing the deck / windows / etc. The restaurant, however, was very disorganized. Service there was substandard, although the food was acceptable. Breakfast and lunch had particularly poor restaurant service - slow, large numbers of mistakes, difficulty getting coffee or utensils. Dinner service was slow and confused -- courses were rarely served to the whole table at the same time. The buffet was pretty good with fewer service issues, although we saw several other guests treated rudely by some of the staff. The cabin service was excellent. The room was kept very clean, and the staff was very professional.

Beautiful ship; Terrible maintenance by DanD11

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Atlantica / Destination: Caribbean - Western

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.
