Review Summary

The locations of destinations was fantastic but the food and overall interaction with other English speaking guests was not good. The food was a very big disappointment, types of food was limited, locations available for meals was limited and quality was VERY POOR.  Mostly frozen meats, no real fresh quality at all.  No true 24-hour pizzeria (without paying an additional amount), which you would expect on a cruise and it seemed they were pushing the "paid" restaurants versus the other food options. Will not take another Costa cruise.

Entertainment

Some highlights included music throughout the ship and the shows, but nothing stood out as great.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Our room attendant was one of two highlights of the staff, the other was the travel office and tour guides. All other staff were rude, didn't greet you in the hallways or other areas and we felt we were causing bartenders trouble each time we requested drinks. Not good!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
For a new ship it was tired and old looking.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small, which we expected for the cost, but towels were old and thin, pillows were old and thin and overall it looked old.

Ship Tip

It's an Italian cruise lines, do not expect American quality!
