Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
You have to pay for a glass of water at dinner, which I find ridiculous! Friendly waiters, though. Food quality is passable.

I did not particularly enjoy the show I saw, but that does not mean they are bad, just not my cup of tea.

Ship Quality

If you are a non-smoker, definitely do not cruise with Costa. Although they do have many areas of clean air on the ship, too many areas way too smoky. The cigar lounge is right next to the entrance to the theater. Cough cough!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The best part of the cruise was the large room, but the air conditioning did not work properly and it was hard to sleep at night.

Ports of call

Rhodes, Greece

3 out of 5
Beautiful town. I saw it on my own and did not do a shore excursion.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

3 out of 5

Messina, Sicily

Taormina is beautiful. Too bad our tour guide's accent was so thick that we could not understand anything she said.

Pros: The stateroom was very roomy; great stateroom steward!

Cons: Having to pay for water at dinner; poor food choices; too many smoking areas

Recommends Costa neoRomantica? No.
