Ship Facts: Costa Pacifica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Pacifica Deck Plans
The Jelly Ship [ Costa Pacifica]
My first view of the Costa Pacifica was "wow" what a big and wide ship. Very imposing and beautiful,the interior of deck 3 is as I expected well designed and put together immaculately. We set off and while in our cabin we noticed a vibration and slight whining sound this became worse over the next two days at sea, this we put down to the ships engine not being isolated from the ships hull.

At our first port [Katakolon] I noticed a large machine mounted on a lorry trailer it must have been fitted by the time we got back because the vibration had nearly stopped. Dinner that night [first sitting 6.30pm], Food a bit bland but sauces tasty and over salty.As the ship left port the tables,overhead suspended lighting and glassware rattled and vibrated due to the front propeller pods which push the front of the ship sideways.Entertainment was very fair and had to suit the multi European guests on board the ship, Dance areas was more in-tune with French and Italian tastes with singers reflecting this,The ships guests 3450 of which 340 are English what can we expect!. Breakfast meal's buffet stile, there is plenty to choose from but again very salty with the cooked items. The ships crew are very good always a smile and polite but a little overzealous in taking drink orders, on the other hand the dinning room waiters were very attentive. WOULD I GO ON THIS SHIP AGAIN? Answer "NO" not while this ship keeps shaking like a jelly you never know if the super structure is going to collapse like a pack of cards.
