Embarkation was a breeze. To entering the port, parking the car, checking in and boarding. It took less the 45 Min's!
Our balcony was right at the back of the ship! What a great view! We got our bags less than 2hours after boarding and we boarded at 2pm, the ship didn't leave until 7pm!
The ship is beautiful and clean and its easy to find your way around. The staff were helpful, polite and always available.
We had 2nd seating for dinner and dining room temp was normal, i have no idea what the previous poster is talking about!! Very strange. Maybe was she in the boiler room with the engineers for dinner!!! Service in the dining room was superb and yes i got my glass of water refilled over and over again. Food was on par to other cruise lines however we never got lobster! BTW in the buffet area there was plenty of ice cream with LARGE SPOONS! lol
Her comment about the languages shows complete ignorance and does not merit a reply.
The shows were great, just as good as any Carnival, Royal or NCL we have been on.
We enjoyed the international flair on board. We made friends with Germans, Italians, Portuguese and a couple from Brazil!!
Overall we had a marvelous cruise and i would highly recommend the Costa Atlantic.
We got back to San Juan around 2pm so we just over an hour to see the Fort and old San Juan.
