We have recently returned from a transatlantic Cruise on the Costa Fascinosa and completely disagree with the 2 previous reviews. What do people expect for approx £20 per night full board ( that is all it cost when taking off the air fares and transfers). We don't go on a cruise to sit in the cabin to watch television so the lack of English channels was not a problem, the staff on the ship were pleasant and helpful and it was also nice to meet so many nice people from other countries( I am ashamed to say the only people we heard moaning were British)
OK the entertainment was not as good as on P&O, Fred Olsen or Thomsons but they are not catering soley for the British guests, there was a least 7 different nationalities so entertainment had to suit all tastes. They did several quizes every day in different languages. One of the best shows I have seen on any cruise line was the Brazilian Three Tenors. so come on you moaners if you don't like Italian food or Italians why pick an Italian cruise line..
