Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
having cruised on many lines,and reading the negative reviews on costa ships,i thought it cannot be that bad,i was wrong,i should have listened,IT WAS AWFUL.the ship itself is really nice,and well decked out,the balcony cabins really nice,but goes downhill frof there.

3 hours in the terminal before you can board,find your own way to the cabin, the food onboard in the buffet is tasteless and repetitive and is the same every day,pitza and pastaif you feel like a late snack all that is on offer is a pitza,breakfast is not that brilliant you end up walking around trying to find somewhere to in the retuarant is nice,but small portions,the staff onboard are not the happiest I have comme across on cruise ships,but waiters in the restaurant are brilliant,

it is mostly Italian spoke over the tannoy. the theatre is nice but most of the entertainment is of poor standard and narrated in Italian,great when you get a comedian telling jokes in Italian.end of cruise you get More a bill ofover £100 service charge,even though you feel obliged to tip your water and cabin steward.if you have cruised with royal carribean,STICK WITH THEM costa is a world apart. Less
