Wonderful ports

Sail Date: August 17, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: the destinstion ports were great

Cons: huge buffet lines and no cabin amenities

Recommends Costa Concordia (RETIRED)? Yes!

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
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 being your own everything.
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
We had a person in a wheelchari and staff were always on hand to escort us off and on the vessel.
