Let me start by saying the cruise was great. Cabin service was excellent, entertainment for both children and adults was very good. The captain himself spent time taking children's questions in the kids club. Our 7 year old was very happy with 3 pools and big slide. Our 2 year old had great time both on the slide and in the kiddy pool. My wife and I enjoyed the european food, with a lot of variety at dinner in the main dining room. The portion size is european (smaller), but you can order two of each or different if you wanted. We NEVER went away hungry. My only complaint about dining overall is that in between main food service (breakfast, lunch and dinner) the only place serving food was pizza bar.
We had checked the reviews before we cruised and were a little concerned about some poor reviews given to Costa. We have been on many cruises on many different cruise lines and found Costa to be a very enjoyable cruise with service more in the european style (very good but more reserved than we as americans are used to). We would definitely cruise Costa again.
