A little disappointed

Sail Date: February 15, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We just returned from a 7 day cruise on the Costa Fortuna - our first trip with Costa although we have cruised three other times with different cruise lines. The ship is beautiful and well maintained. The menus in the restaurants were carefully thought out and creative however, the food did not live up to expectations. If you had chicken two nights in a row you were apt to find the same sauce both nights - and it was bland... quite disappointing. The shore excusions sounded good but several of them were very disorganized and some of the excusion staff was curt bordering on arrogant.

Pros: beautiful ship, wonderful stateroom with balcony - all kept meticulously clean

Cons: menu was wonderful, but food was boring

Recommends Costa Fortuna? No.
