The Ship: Enjoyed the ship overall. Mostly clean and well laid out.
The cabin: Spacious. Balcony needed cleaning.
The itinerary: Interesting ports of call in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Romania and Ukraine.
The best part of the ship: The chocolate bar's "tasting" menus. Well worth the Euro4!
Workers: Trying very hard to please.
The car racing experience: Quite pricey but wonderful fun to teach you how badly you drive a F! car.
The 4D cinema: Fun but costly for the short movies.
The staff: trying very hard but obviously tired and over-worked. In fact, with little prodding, they tell you exactly that.
Differences in water: Getting good drinking water was a problem. There are differences in taste throughout the ship. The water dispensers take several minutes of moving your hand around.
Senior staff: The Cruise Director, head of photography and head chef need to be replaced. Fast.
Food: The second-worst food we've ever had on a cruise. The worst was the other Costa cruise we took.
We actually ate meals on land whenever we could to get some edible food.
The breakfast: Coffee and tea, disgusting. The bread is not edible. The selections are boring and unhealthy. No good cheese.
Lunch: Over-cooked, dry food under lamps for too long. Difficulty in getting seats. Some dishes were inedible.
Dinner: Looked much better on the menu in writing than the food in reality. Over-cooked, barely edible meals with no imagination. I could have cooked them better and I'm no chef.
Nightly shows: Totally lame. Underwhelming. Amateurish.
They must think that volume will mask the awfulness of the singing because the volumes were at ear-damage levels.
Repetitive acts from different artists.
Nice theater that could be exploited well. Not by this group of artists and bad singers, though.
You know what priority a cruise line is giving to attracting artists when it advertises for artists in its daily bulletin on the ship!
No interesting speakers at other times.
