Sail Date: August 17, 2008
Ship: Costa Concordia (RETIRED) 548
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship was beautiful. It was difficult at times to get out point across as it was pretty much an italian speaking vacation. I have cruised many times before and felt this ship lacked the activity schedule of fun. It was just limited. The food was good, but lacked variety. I was looking for the delicious italian desserts, and they just weren't there. Crew and staff were friendly, but be prepared with everything except a blow dryer for in yor cabin. The ports were all wonderful. I liked that we had a stop everyday, however some port days were not long enough.

Food and Dining

The food was good, but lacked varitey. It was basically a lot of fish, and the lines at the buffet were like an E ticket ride at Disneyland! Horrible! It was a very limited menu for kids as well.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The size of the rooms was awesome! We simply had a steward who really didn't want to be there and did very little. There were absolutely no amentities int eh cabin at all...so being your own everything.
