The parent company may be CCL but Costa is a still a bad tempered step-child. The other reviews have been kind. This was the worst cruise I have every taken and I've been on NCL. They make you stand in line twice to check-in, once before you board and again after you board just to give them a credit card! We wanted to rest after being up at 4 am to get a taxi and transportation to the port but the room steward wanted to unlock the mini-bar and was knocking on the door every 15 minutes. The food was cold, bland and the service slow. The waiters and bus boys either don't understand english or just ignore what you ask for. I ask for whole wheat toast and got rye, I ask for whole wheat toast again and got white, the third time I got rye again. Then I was told they don't have whole wheat toast, but they had it on the buffet! My wife didn't get her entree at lunch one day and the waiter argued that she did not order one when everyone at the table had heard her. Self service at the buffet is the only way to dine on this ship. The entertainment was what you would expect at a junior high play. The singers were first round rejects from American Idol and the dancers looked like it was their first time on stage, it's excusable to miss a step when the seas are rough, but that night were were in port! All the photos, 1000's of them, were in plastic trays. Some were on display like on CCL but most you had to thumb thru to find your pictures. My wife and I gave up about half way thru one tray. If you like to read take your own books with you, the library is only open 2 hours a day. Most of the passengers I spoke with after the cruise were not happy and do not plan to book with Costa again. In my opinion the other reviews of this cruise were too kind, the crew is surly, the food is cafeteria quality at best and the entertainment second rate. Read Less

Embarkation was crowded and disorganized, even dropping off luggage was a hassle of disorganization. After boarding, you were "pointed" towards an elevator to find your room on your own. The beds was very hard as were the pillows. The dining rooms were well hidden and you could not get there in a straight line. The first night was a nightmare of trying to find the correct dining room. The food was poor, selections unimaginative, deserts pitiful. The buffet upstairs not much better, it was real easy not to gain weight on this cruise. The casino tables were always crowded and they were slow to open more blackjack tables, for those of you who like 3-card poker one table and one table only. Music playing in casino inspired ear plugs. They do have a fairly good selection of slot machines. Disembarkation was again lengthy and disorganized. We did not come into the same birth a common occurrence at Ft. Lauderdale so had to take a shuttle to the car park. The shuttles however were not marked nor were there signs to direct you. Registering your credit card at the beginning of the voyage is a mega hassle, it is done after you board the ship so another line to stand in folks. Then a lot of people had to go to the pursers office another 2-3 times because they did not get confirmation codes from the credit card companies. The attitude of the pursers office people was not good, they did not care that you were being unconvinced. It's like if you don't like it get off! The shows were mediocre and scheduled at weird times. When in port there was never an announcement that you could now get off the ship and most important never a clue as to what floor you could disembark at! Read Less
