Costa Cruise Line

Your Rating:Four Stars

# previous cruises: 2
Date of Trip: July 27, 2001
Itinerary: Mediterranean

This is a great vessel and crew, but at least in the Med trips with approx. 75% italian passengers, what means that most of activities are dedicated for them.

Public Areas
There were 2 or 3 areas where you could find the atmosphere that we were looking for (quite, romantic, lux, etc...) like the Restaurant Magnifico (Zefferino) with the appropriate good service , better quality food, and live music , etc... where you will not find any italian....!!. Also the indoor swimming pool in the Pompey Spa was very nice (Fitness club, Turkish bath, 2 Sauna, Massages, ...).

Food and Service
There are 2 restaurants (exactly the same decoration, food and service) Fantasia & Symphonia, where food and waiters service (Our waiter was Francisco Andino from Honduras), at least in our cruise, were very good, but you have also more choices in buffet,which are not recommended if you do not like overcrowded places. Also you have the best option which is the Rest. Magnifico Zefferino but here you have to pay 30000 Italian Lira per pax.

Cabins were bigger than expected, and always clean (Our cabinist was Julie from Croatia), with a very good cabin service.

The theatre was nice, not problem to get a good place.

Our itinerary was Marseille, Genova (Nice excursion to Portofino), Naples (Horrible place), Palermo, Tunisia (Only few hours to make shopping in the Medina), Mallorca (We recommend the excursion to the Son Amar Show, where there is always an international star, and we had the good luck to see The Drifters)

Who Goes
Wide variety of people and nationalities on this cruise.
