Costa Concordia - Costa nota lotta!
We were looking to Cruise on a relatively modest budget but didn't want bargain basement.
Modern and well laid out, Themes for the different public areas are distinctive and individual but flow into each other well.
Would have liked to have seen more Dance classes and less Quizzes
Attentive and Friendly, I saw none of the 'European distain' that has been described previously in fact just the opposite.
Port & Shore Excursions
Superb Intinery, the only excursion we used was the Coach transfer from the boat to the edge of the Port. The excursions did seem expensive.
Travel To Port of Embarkation
Airline - Easyjet. Not great but understandable given the price of the Fly and Cruise
Brilliant. Plenty of space, clean and tidy.
From 6:30am - 1am You could eat!
The Buffet area was less canteen than RCI and had a nice Art Deco More feel. Plenty of food stations so you didn't have to fight for the right to eat.
The MDRs were great for dinner with up to seven small and perfectly formed courses on offer giving you 'A little bit of what you fancy' in a very european way. If you want large portions and a blow out stick to the buffet.
Breakfast and Lunch in the MDRs were also buffet but breakfast had limited
service options like ommelettes.
Young and enthusiastic staff, sometimes introductions in five languages was galling, other times it was amusing, fun and added to the charm. Better than I was expecting
Trouble Free and easy, unfortunately once we left the precious care of Costa Easyjet lost the pilot (yes, really) and we had to wait 5 hours for a crew to be despatched. Less
