The MSC cruise a few years ago was my worst cruise, this COSTA was the second worst cruise I ever did.
After booking I read all the bad reviews so I had contacted the cruise line and they did charge 75% of what I paid so I decided to go anyway. After the MSC I thought it could not be worse, and I was right, second worst!
Mainly the food is terrible. Breakfast ordinary and long lines waiting for the food in the buffet restaurant. In the main dining room breakfast almost every time cold and long waiting time. Once I had to wait 35 minutes to get my breakfast, my 3 friends were ready a long time when finally my food came.
Cabin was OK, nothing special. On other cruise lines every day nice decorated towels, free water, here nothing like that
went to altos de chavon on my own. beautiful!
went with a taxi to town.
on our own to the city
we went to a beach, very nice!
Been a few times. Because of arrival time too short to go to explore the island with my friend that were there the first time. We went with the water taxi to Philipsburg. We were there on a Sunday so lots of shops closed!
