Costa Fortuna

Ship: Costa Fortuna

Review summary

Meals were fair, service was poor not because of personnel but because of lack of training and communication of management. Excursions one specific was misrepresented when we scheduled snorkeling the crew although knowing the weather was stormy took us to a cove that was dangerous and then did not allow snorkeling. That cove appeared dangerous even in the best weather because of undercurrents. We paid for an excursion that should have been cancelled before reaching the site.
