Costa American East Coast Discovery oct 2010

Sail Date: September 2010
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: Quebec City

Excellent cruise program: from Quebec to Ft Lauderdale via Canada, Boston, N-Y, the Bermudes, and Fflorida: 7 stops in total

but:

- Charlottetown was replaced by Halifax, absolutely UNinteresting

- Due to wrong manouevre on departure Bermuda, delay and arrival at Cape

Canaveral at 2pm, with departure at 6pm = no time for raisonable visit

-Cabins (superior balcony:) very luxury , spacefull and tastefull decoration

-Staff:all asians exceptionnaly kind , polite and helpfull

-Organistion: perfect on board and on ground (US immagration in a minimum record time!)

-Food: european style, very good, a lot of choice (bf/diner)

-Entertainment at the theater: disappointing (the musicians playing in the bars

do the performing also on stage), except one Gospel singer boarded in N-Y

-Captain's cocktails(VIP, Costa CLUB, Anniversary/honey moon): ridiculous, below acceptable standards: all invitees sit More down in the theater, get a fast drink, a very short speech by the captain (reading his text) and ...that's it!

Better do nothing.

Photos: every night at the restaurant,cocktail a.s.o: too much is too much!

And who wants to pay 14€ for 1 picture?

Passengers: at this time of the year, mostly over 50,upper middle class,(many europeans) = very ageable (well behaving,well educated).

Wifi: promised in the cabins, but too signal is too weak, so at 10€ per hour

one spends 3/4 time waiting for connection...

BUT, all by all, a very nice cruise thanks to the confort of the cabin, the kindness of the satff, the itinerary, the food and the SUPER organisation.

Will try Costa next (third) time again. Less

Bermuda is cute, but very small, so 1 day is more tha enough
