Overall Member Rating
We had a A I package, didn't really have any info what was on it, but on 2 nd night in the theatre i asked for a Gin and tonic ( Bombay ), which i was given, after the show we went into one of the lounges asked for the same, and was told it wasn't available on the all inclusive, i said but iv'e just had it, she said your card will not except it, check your card !, when your receipt arrives you can not see the price, just a place for your signature, your card is returned to you with you copy folded around the card with the price out of site, on checking i found i had been charged 9.8 euro's for the Bombay Gin & tonic. It was suggested i go to reception, which i did they said nothing they could do go to the theatre, i replied will there be anyone their - yes, no one at the theatre, but along comes the cruise director with another guy, explained the position, and was told he was the cruise director and didn't deal with bar issues but the bill was correct, accompanied by his finger waging in my face, i waged my finger back, and was told don't wag your finger at me !, i am the cruise director, at this the other guy asked him to step away while he called the bar manager , bar manager arrived, called the waiter, who said i asked for Bombay Gin ,which i had but i thought i should have been told it was not on the package, i was quite happy to pay the difference, but not the full wack, the whole time this cruise director trying to have his say, whilst waving his arms about, i just had to tell him to keep 2 yards away.
Will i go back with Costa NO, Neo ships or any other Costa ships.
By the way it is nothing to do with Italian Cruise lines, we already booked our 4th cruise with MSC, sailing in August 2014.
