Costa not longer what it was

Sail Date: February 22, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

As a previous Costa use. and also many other cruise lines. I wanted to impress my wife with Costa and also find out if their being purchased by another line made a differance in Costas service. Well it sure did and for the worst. The food in formal dining was poor in quality and prep. as was the dining service poor. The first nite service was outrageses when first nite should present a high impression of what to expect. When food and service was compared to previous Costa cruises I give it a rating of 0 on a 1 to 10 scale. Actualy the buffet food was much better. As example on other Costa cruises we had a wine stewrd , none here, and pasta between each serving, none here. There was never enought butter on table foe six there was 3 peices every nite There was no exprosso as with other cruises. Attention to table was so poor I had to get up several times to look for someone to get what the table needed. Only one salt and pepper for a table of six..I could go on and on but what the use . Worst of all upon boarding we were told that the lowest cost wine package was unavable and certainly this was the better choise of wines . I believe a attempt to push the higher price package. Oh and the orange juice was watered down to the point it was not drinkable.. Card room andd craft classes the staff just dumped stuff on table and left. The only misic played anywhere was the island style so no dancing for old timers like me who want rock and roll. The only good things ablut the cruise were the ship (altough old is well layed out) and the theater and the shows which were the best I have experanced. Well its appeartant that they are trying to cut donw expances buying poor quality food and cutting service personal. By the way I had the best room steward ever. All in all I will never use Costa again. I planned to use Costa for a Med . cruise this year. So now I will not
