Costa Favolosa Cruise Review to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Sail Date: July 30, 2013
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Review SummaryExcept for Palma, the ship adds new passengers and debarks others, making chaotic lifeboat drills a daily occurrence. No afternoon naps are possible! As English speakers we were seriously disadvantaged: English tours were cancelled due to lack of participants, yet with a no refund policy we were obliged to take tours in Italian or Spanish. Waste of time, in many cases, and very frustrating and disappointing as we chose this ship's itinerary specifically for its cultural activities..
Wish we'd been warned ahead of time that the cruise was not suitable for English speakers. Felt like outsiders most of the time! Even the admin.agents, restaurant people, and tour desk folks hardly spoke English, and when we tried to communicate our concerns the attitude seemed to be "Get lost."

more like being in a circus than well-organized and efficient operation
