Worst Cruise Ever

Sail Date: February 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The ONLY thing we liked about our cruise was the size of the
room (window view) and closet space. Food awful. Dinner
took too long to be served. The layout of the ship is awful.
To get to the dining rooms you have to take one elevator, then
walk the ENTIRE LENGTH of the ship to take another elevator to
get to the dining rooms.
European Italians were very loud and very rude.
I have sailed on 8 other cruises, mostly Holland America, and
kept asking myself "What made us choose this line?" NEVER
Also, not enough time in the Ports. We would arrive at 5 PM
and sail at Midnight - (San Juan). Nassau - arrived at Noon,
sailed at 6 PM.
Our own cabin was very noisy with something that felt like a
cannon ball hitting the side of the ship every morning at
l:30 AM. We actually jumped up in the bed and said "What
was that?" No sleep for 7 nights.
Try another ship, not this one. Not a pleasant experience.
We were traveling as a group, l8 people, -- no one liked the
food on the COSTA FORTUNA....not even the Italians.

Pros: Size of cabin

Cons: FOOD! Either served cold or it tasted awful.

Recommends Costa Fortuna? No.

Food and Dining
Tasteless, cold, dessert serving sizes were extremely small.
Not enough entertainment and WHERE was that Midnight Buffet
our last night out? They talked about it during the show,
but we checked out Floor 9 and was sent down to 5 and 3, but
there wasn't one.
Ship Quality
Layout - tiring, walking from one end of the ship to the
other to get to the dining room.
Service and Staff
Young man had a duffel bag stolen from outside his cabin.
It held all of his identity papers. Guest Services was
very laxadaisical in assisting him.
Cabin / Stateroom
ize of the room really nice.Room steward kept it very clean.No
digital clock supplied. Bring your own clock and shampoo.
