We had a exellent cruise with the Costa.
The atmosphere was very relaxing and the crew was very servce oriented.
The ship was not the most modern, but everything workt on the ship.
It was very pleasant evening at the ship.
In short, a nice cruise repeating
Nothing but distaste for this cruise. The staff were unhelpful & even rude at times. Everything seemed to be too much trouble or too difficult for them to bother with. Command of English was not good.
We will not travel with Costa again.
If what you are looking for is a great itinerary then this is the cruise for you. The housekeeping and wait staff were very gracious. The ship itself is passed its prime but is low key and the public rooms are simply yet pleasantly appointed. Overall, a pleasant experience.
The ship size was small and the amenities resembled it. The air conditioning on the 6th floor didn't work, there was only 1 outlet for 2 people and that kept going out. The location of the outlet was obscure. In the bathroom, the shower needed the black mold to be cleaned along the walls and this was probably due to the air circulation in the room (poor air conditioning). The pools were small, which I at first thought they were hot tubs for the ships size, and always packed. The ship should not be booked to its capacity.
