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 EVER AGAIN. 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.

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.

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.
