If you're going on a trip to meet new people and interact with everyone on board, then this is not the perfect cruise for you. Out of 3000 passengers, there were 140 English speaking passengers. The Italian passengers were always really nice, would offer glasses of wine and we all did great making hand gestures, but it didn't make for great conversation. We would recommend this cruise for a couple that likes to be alone together.

Pros: Sitting on the deck

Cons: Language barrier

Recommends Costa Concordia (RETIRED)? Yes!

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Savona (Genoa), Italy
Went to Portofino, and loved that, but also went into Savona after the shore excursion and loved being in a non-touristy town.
Palermo, Sicily

Valletta, Malta
We were excited to be in an English speaking town, although it's a heavy accent. This too was a great town to stroll.
Don't Miss: Hypogeum -- a 5000 year old city under the city. Must make your own arrangements months in advance.
Tunis, Tunisia
Carthage was amazing. There is a one Euro charge to take pictures, but you can take all the pictures you want in Carthage after you pay.
Don't Miss: Take a shore excursion. It looked like a headache without one.

Barcelona, Spain
A great strolling town. We'd turn a corner and there'd be live spanish guitar playing in the gothic quarter. Do some research and hop into a museum that interests you.
Don't Miss: Las Ramblas (with your moneybelt securely fastened)
