Costa Fortuna

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)

Sail date: December 02, 2007

Ship: Costa Fortuna

Cabin type: Inside

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Review summary

The ship was clean and smooth sailing but was very noisy because of the many sounds the ship made while moving. The shopping areas were too small and had a very limited selection of merchandise. Everywhere on the ship was too crowded because the public facilities were too small for the number of passengers.

Ports of call

Catalina Island (Isla Catalina), Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
It was just a beach area and not equal to the private beaches of other cruise lines we have visited on previous cruises.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

3 out of 5
The Fortuna did not arrive in San Juan until evening so we were very limited in what we could do or see after dark. An earlier arrival time would have been much better.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Strictly a tourist trap.

Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic

1 out of 5
We arrived there in the evening and the ship's staff recommended not going into town. The only option was a theatre performance at an amphitheatre which we chose not to attend.
