A very nice cruise

Sail Date: February 08, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

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.

Pros: Cleanliness of the ship

Cons: Drawing during a meeting

Recommends Costa Fortuna? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Although we had to be patient with our waiters the first night ( as everybody was on board ), but they adjusted afterwards.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent room service
Service and Staff
Grand Turk Island
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
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.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
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
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.
