Review summary

With costa you will need to time your free water and coffee and tea with meals pay your daily gratuities and be early on a sea day to get a sun bed europeans like to reserve for the day 🙄 no matter if the use or not and costa have no policy discouraging this, there is no waiter service around the pool deck and food can be same same.. they cater for Italian passengers first ..late night life, fixed dining time at the restaurant, mix of European nationality’s, except this and you will enjoy ..staff are great mostly Filipino or Indian as per..
