Sail Date: Aug 2014

This has been the worst vacation I have ever had although the expectations were really high.

We were looking forward to going to the Norwegen fjords, escaping from the hot summer days and enjoying good food. Actually, we were promised that the food in the Costa Pacifica was amazing. To our disappointment, the food has been the worst I had payed for to dine out. I have to say I didn't have high expectations on the buffet for breakfast and lunch which was awful by the way, with thousands of people fighting to get a fried egg. In Celebrity, we fought for sushi. The main problem was dinner, I have been in other cruises like Carnival or Celebrity whose dinners were amazing, totally amazing. Costa dinners were horrible, totally disappointing, trying to offer well presented plates but with horrible execution and taste. I had to take out of my mouth some fish and meat because I could not bite or swallow it. This is how bad it was.

The entertainment was laughable. Each day was worse and on the nav days I was totally bored. I stopped going to the night shows because they kept bringing these two singers (couple) that I could not stand.
