Cabin: Balcony Classic
Creativity!  Outstanding
Trieste - how convenient!!

Costa is a good provider of fun, food, pleasure. While the quality of the shows has deteriorated and the experience of the Medusa Restaurant was embarrassing, the overall ship is to die for... the service is as usual, excellent. Must admit, the creativity of the four star chef was not top-of-the-mark. Now then, they have changed the drinks package. So if you get the 25 euro a day rather than the 29 euro, your disappointment factor will be high. What is advertised, what you find on the table provided menu cards versus reality - well good luck, And getting into an argument with the bartender will only frustrate the issue, especially when you have the paperwork in front of the two of you. Beware! Costa is Italian.

Each port was as are ports today, full of tourist shoppes, tourists and if you think I would pay 17 euros to walk to Dubrovnik wall, you must think little of me. We don't take the cruses just for the stops, they are at best secondary. Our reason is the ship and she is a beauty.

Balcony Classic

Just fine, no problems and the cabin boy was wonderful, well trained and quite observant.
