The cabin was the smallest I have ever seen on a cruise ship despite the fact that we had a deluxe cabin. The picture windows that you were supposed to be able to look out of had not been cleaned in what appeared to be several trips. All the food was served cold, not that it mattered much because the food was terrible, especially the soups. There was no selection for room service and the continental breakfast buns were so hard it seemed as if they were days old. If you were 15 minutes late for your lunch sitting you couldn't get in and were forced to go to the buffet line which served mystery food and leftover pastries from some other day. The only good thing about the ship was our food servers and cabin steward. The ship was overall bland in appearance and in several areas quite dirty. The information desk was always helpful, unlike the room service, which was argumentative. The shows were an attempt to imitate Las Vegas. There was only 1 formal night and we never saw the Captain, or even the other officers, for that matter. This ship was a large disappointment for all the money we spent for this trip. I will say though that Costa did a great job on the travel arrangements and all the tours.
