Review summary

Among the shore excursions the ROMA and StPeter excursion was fabulous, thanks to the guides that were accompaniing us (ENG speaking), no matter that there were. 


The Sardegna Cagliary excursion of Olive and Wine was pretty weak. The visited sites (olive farm and winary ) were interesting, but the young lady guides were pretty uncompetent.


The Ship itself - COSTA PACIFICA- is pretty good, though little bit more shabby than the Fascionosa (we were cruising in 2016 with). The serving staff were kind and very pleasant.

The food on the ship was realy not so tasty. The Breakfas variety was good according to expectations, but the coffe served were blaaaah (hot and tasteless). We were avoiding the the lunch on deck 9- because of huge mass production and mass-tasty- we often had lunch on the shore. The dinner menu seemed well planned, but the cooking was worse than in Fascionosa last year.

We had Samsara Room reservation- and could not realy make advantage of the free spa entrance, as the hot tub and hot saunas has not so much advantage on hot summer days. 

The drink package "Brindiamo" covered fully our expectations. We are not coctail fans, but prefer more than 1 bottle wine/day , coffee and water.

Ship tip

Best solution to register the credit card to the Costa Card right after the embarkation. If you purchase the dring package on the ship than you have to change the Costa Card to new one in order to get it acceptable in the bars.
