Review summary

This was our very first time taking a cruise and I gifted it to my wife as a Second Honeymoon,& invited another elderly couple to join us,which they did.

The welcoming committee was warm and friendly and taking our first snap at the wheel was memorial.The cabin was spacious and welcoming but most of all was the human face of Costa in our cabin attendant namely "Bayu Sahid. He was kind & hard working & we gifted him.//On the flip side we were fed the same menu for 10days with no salt or any variety,pasta,macoroni etc. No German,Chinese or Indian food at all.B'fast eggs were tasteless.Chefs had no idea of using sauces & light spices or even soy sauce.//Entertainment was great & lots of activities.On our last night we attended the theatre and our friends wife decided to go to the WC and trajedy struck as from the first step of the balcony she tripped on the first step and came tumbling down two flights of stairs. Each of the stairs had steel edges which broke her big toe and as she lay there,a Costa lady (White Uniform)came and asked if she should call the doctor and that would cost $180 initially.Our friend was in shock & so was her husband,while I held her head off the floor waiting for someone from Costa to assist her with a wheelchair.I hear that Costa may be liable for damages as no attempt to assist the dazzed passenger,but most of all,NO Medical or accident report on this passenger was ever made,while crowds gathered around.She had a black eye,head and rib laserations from the steel edges(no carpeting)

Finally, a wheelchair was brought & we wheeled the patient to her cabin in great pain.No Costa personnel followed up to her cabin to see if any further assistance could be offered....very poor response.

We are waiting a response from Costa on the matter. Ashley Francis

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
very impressed with the design of the ship.Where was it built...Taiwan?Cleanliness excellent.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Excellent for style & roominess, but being in the front of the ship any slight roll or movement tended to give her nausea, so we would have to go up to the middle of the 9th floor. Your stabalizers were very good and yet she was uneasy.

Ship tip

Take Gravol for sure and dont expect a bonanza of variety in food offered even in the dinning room.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5

Ocho Rios, Jamaica Did not visit port

Of all the Ports of call this was the least appealing as passengers and Bauxite shared the same harbour. The path for the passengers should be wider & cleaner and more appealing for sure.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

A great place to stop.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
A great place to shop.
