Food was horrible

Sail Date: February 03, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

i would think that sailing through Italy and France would bring about some pasta and other good food options. None of these were available. The sweets were lacking taste and it seemed that they only offered ice cream during lunch from 12-2 in which most people were visiting the country. Only sauceless pizza and dam near burned burgers were available for lunch options from 4-6. The main dining options for dinner were much better. Announcements were in 4 different languages which seemed to be repeated every 15 minutes. Guest service staff were not on the same page as you were told different information. They kept your passport which was our only form of ID so we could not use our credit cards to buy stuff off the ship unless we had cash. It was a hassle to get the cruise to make a photo copy for us. The only great part was that our rooms were great as well as the service for the room.

I would think twice about taking costa again even if it was paid for. I have cruised on norweigen, carnival and princess and costa is the worse.
