Costa Fortuna

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)

Sail date: February 08, 2009

Ship: Costa Fortuna

Cabin type: Inside

Traveled as: Large Group

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Review summary

I would rate the ship ( overall ) very good. The staff was very friendly and we had only good comments about the room service and waiters. The activities personnel were very entertaining. The only cons: The trip to San Juan, Pto Rico is too long at sea and the sea was choppy. Also, the jewelry store held a drawing during our meeting with the activity director. In order to claim the prize ( a nice watch ), you had to be present. My wife's name came out and she could not claim her prize since we were all at the meeting.

Although we had to be patient with our waiters the first night ( as everybody was on board ), but they adjusted afterwards.

3 out of 5
Only good, because we got there at 5 PM and had not eaten yet and the ship was leaving at midnight which gave us only a litlle time to visit.

Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Punta Cana is not too far out. For the golfers: Casa de Campo. Altos de Chavon tour = a must see. There is not to much to see in town La Romana.
Don't Miss: Altos de Chavon tour.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Spend a day on the beach ( which could be cleaner ). The water is clear but the beach isn't. I strongly recommend sandals to avoid getting hurt. Good shopping especially for jewelry.
Don't Miss: Jewelry shopping

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Must do : island tour ( but be careful that you get what the driver describe ). We were told that we would be going to a beach during the tour, but after we boarded we were advised that we would have to pay extra to go to that beach.
Don't Miss: Nice sightseeing during island tour.

Pros: Cleanliness of the ship

Cons: Drawing during a meeting
