I cruise average 2 times a year and this was our 10th cruise, but our opinion about this cruise is terrible, first the food was terrible, staff around the ship was not friendly at all, we used to see at in other lines when you met any crew member they always say hello, ask you if everything is ok, not in this one . At the restaurant our server never asked if everything was ok, if we needed something else, even when we ask for any recomendation about the options in the menu, nothing he was just taking order. The cabin too small (it was not surprise because this was not our first time at Costa cruise) but the cabin attendant was terrible: first the bed sheets seems like never was washed, dust everywhere,"no comment".
At the self serving restaurant if you were looking for something and you ask they said "is in the other side" and you go to the other side and ask, obviously, the answer was "is in the other side". so you have to desist because is a never-ending story. One day the lunch ( should be open until 1:30 pm ) at 1:10 the only available food was bread, and we were waitting standing there for 20 minutes (long line of people) and they said , sorry but is 1:30 pm and the lunch time is over. You can imagine what happened after.
The ports visited were ok but the time in each port was extremely short, you have no time for shopping. 3 or 4 hours is not enough at europe. Other cruises lines are 8 -10 hours, while costa 3 - 5.
Between 1:30pm to 7:00pm the only food available was bread and thin pizzas (inedible).
Nights life were fantastic, singers, piano, excellent.
