if internet access is important be careful!! The wifi charges were extremely expensive but the internet service was VERY slow! Not worth the price at all! And the support when I had problems was non-existent! Try an internet cafe at port!

If you're an English speaker, just go in with an expectation that there might be a slight language barrier and a different type of service in some situations. It'll help if you've sailed a US flagged boat before.

Don't expect to eat anywhere but the sit down restaurants. There is no night time buffet and the breakfast and lunch buffets have the same thing every day. No variety in the foods.

When you go a shore and come back to ship betwen 3:30PM and 5:30 Pm it NO place to eat. Only what is work is PIZZA on the deck. We came back to ship very tired and NO FOOD on the deck and you must wait till you going to your diner at 8:45 PM. Terrible !!!!!!!!!

Listen VERY carefully to English messages - they are often garbled or too fast to understand among the 4 other languages..

Basically you have to pay for everthing even like a bag of chip. If you plan to have a diet during the cruise, you probably pick the right cruise with Costa.

Wait for free on-shore Wi-Fi. On board cost is 27 euros per hour AFTER a 3 euro "registration" fee. Common areas are kept VERY clean. Staff constantly polishing.

Make golf simulator cheaper to use as it's not very best in class and quite expensive to play.

Very stable and with a fine climatization ( not noisy and not too cold... )

Book excursions thru United Cruises or an outside tour company, you will get smaller groups and more personalized tours.

Ask them prior to the cruise what the evening themes will be so you can bring appropriate dress to join in the fun.

Bring lots of extra cash for food. Drinks are limited to piss warm water. Food service hours very limited. No free food after 9pm. Over priced drink packages. Br prepared for incredibly short port times.

It is worth going on the planned excursions.

Bring your own bottled water. Its hard to come by on the ship. Also, don't expect the dining experience you find on other cruise lines. Costa encourages you to spend more money in their exclusive dining areas to receive the best food. Save your money for the ports of call where the food is amazing.
