COSTA ATLANTICA 1/2/10-1/9/10
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Movies were $8.95 inroom only, no movie theatre onboard. Also not one flat screen TV on the whole ship that I saw. They really need to upgrade there.
The theater shows were no better. Very European. Jugglers, acrobats, Italian tenors. Like a bad Ed Sullivan show. Not even a live orchestra. All the music for the shows was pre-recorded. One night however they had a comedian/ impressionist who was pretty good. He claimed to be Bruce Springsteen's second cousin. Hey, I believed him.
We did find one really good lounge band, the Brian Ellwood Trio. Ellwood plays a nasty piano and he handled rock n roll, Motown, country and standards with ease.
My wife was not nuts about Costa overall. I admit I was a bit more enthusiastic than she but if she won't go on Costa again I guess that's it. Too bad. I loved that Lasagne. Less
Cabin review: ver
We had a balcony cabin on the 7th deck perfectly positioned right next to the atrium elevators. Elevator service was quick and efficient. Enough closet space. Verandah furniture nothing to write home about. The table looked like it came from a hospital furniture catalog. Bed very firm. I liked it, my wife less so. I had no backaches on waking up. Only one 120v outlet located under the dressing mirror on the desk. Cabin service pretty standard, no complaints.
