Costa review is nice and we had a high expectation when we book our cruise.

English language should be the principal communication on board. Anouncement over the shipboard communication system sometimes never transmitted in english.

We are force to join the Italians, Spanish, French or Germans in our excursions because no English speaking groups.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Cruise staffs never did enough to accommodate English speaking passengers. We book all excursions in English prior to boarding but all was canceled because of not enough English speaking passengers to fill a whole bus. What is worst, we are only notified the night before the excursion. No time to select alternative one.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food is OK. Westerners has to bear with Italian foods. No eggs. Dining was made a passageway between two swimming pools. Sanitation is not strictly enforce. Children with their trunks, bear footed crossing the dining.
