Ship Facts: Costa Atlantica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Atlantica Deck Plans
Costa Chaotica

EMBARKATION

Those unlucky enough not to have priority waited in a queue for up to four hours to board the ship.

LUGGAGE

3.5 hours after boarding one of my two suitcases showed up. I eventually found the other one on the wrong deck.

DINNER AFTER BOARDING

We were allocated an 8.30dining time. The queue at the dining room took 20 minutes to negotiate. At 9.30there was compulsory lifeboat drill. Much of the meal went unbeaten. This wasn't such a bad thing as it was barely edible anyway.

SHIPBOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS.

Repeated in 5 languages through a crackly intercom.

DISEMBARKATION

The ship docked at 2.00 pm but cabins had to be vacated by 10.00 am leaving 1500disembarking passengers wandering the decks and public areas with overnight luggage in tow. Overcrowded lounges and bistro resulted.

TENDERED PORT

2 hour wait for a tender. There has to be a better way of allocating times so that the passengers need show up when their transfer is to take place rather than waiting in the theatre for an hour and a half before their allocated number is called.

BRIDGE PLAYERS

My wife and I are bridge players. There was no process for identifying other bridge players. Surely a notice board in the card room would suffice!

MEALS

Generally poor selection and very questionable quality. The bistro was ok but the main dining room was very mediocre. The charge for plain water in the premium dining room was outrageous.

CREW

Generally polite and helpful.
