Review summary

We just came back after celebrating Christmas as well as my husband's 50th birthday on the Costa Deliziosa. Although we have cruised several times previously, this was the first time with Costa. The things that impressed me the most was the cabin size, that was impressive, as well as the cleanliness of the entire ship, and especially my cabin. The entertainment was top notch and we were a group of 11, all of us enjoyed that part. The part we were thoroughly disappointed in was the food. A majority of us were vegetarian and we had very limited veg choices. Lunch wasn't too bad but dinner was quite awful, the food was often uncooked and everyone on the table got served at different times so it was a bit awkward. There was also very limited complimentary coffee, and it was only available certain times of the day. The breakfast was identical every single day. We expected the pizza to be the best since it was an Italian cruise liner, but that, too was disappointing. Overall a good cruise, great itinerary but we didn't gain the customary cruise pounds...which I guess is a blessing, but we feel a bit short changed!
