  3. Costa Favolosa
Costa favalosa was the worst cruise I have ever been on. I have been on many cruise lines. the food quality was only a little better than a high school cafeteria food. The entertainment was poor. The ship had no real food choices but italian and that was very poor. All other ships have multiple food types and different places to eat. If the main dining hall was open the buffet was closed along with any other options. The lines were always very long because they only would have one place offering anything at one time on the ship. They nickled and dimed you for every thing and the quality was poor. The spa hot tubs stem rooms and relaxation rooms were extra. they had no ice cream unless you paid extra and only at limited time offerings . They had no soda drinks or even juice with out paying more. all other ships I have been on at least had juice through out the day or soda during the main meal of the day included. They had no piano bar jazz club. no comedy club. the excursion desk was disorganized. One of my excursions was even cancelled and another was set for the wrong language. The management told the room staff not to waist towels making towel animals which on all other cruises is a custom. There was no onboard welcoming party. The alcoholic drinks were watered down. If this was my first cruise I wound never do another.

Avoid Costa Cruise at all cost!
