We met the Executive Chef, Massimo, who did an excellent job. Seek him out, a young man who has been on the cruise ships for 17 years.
The food was great, the entertainment entertaining and an overall great experience.
We have been on the big ships-Royal Caribbean , Carnival, etc.but this is much better.
Last year we took a similar cruise with Louis Cruises and this too was small and great.
People complain about the announcements in different languages,so what, if all you wish to hear is English, stay home. There are lots of passengers speaking different languages and they too deserve to hear the messages.
All in all a great cruise and we will use Costa again.
