The over the top restaurant. Or is it the Sistine Chapel.

My review is written in 2 sections for reasons that will become apparent. I'm reviewing the service and food etc, then an incident that had a major impact on our trip.

This is our 5th Costa cruise. Despite what is written by others we have always had a great holiday. Yes, there are issues, things aren't quite what is expected, the management are surly and short (not height!), but that happens with many holidays, not just cruises. And perhaps many things are down to language differences.

Booked this a month after the last one, in November last year. Got an excellent price and the Euro was cheap. We book it with a travel agent in Italy and got on board credit as well.

Cabin Review

Outside Premium

Cabin EP

Typical Costa/Carnival cabin. Plenty of room for 2, Ok for 3 and just about ok for 4. Wardrobe and drawers space is ample. Not sure our steward was as good as the past ones we have had, it was always made up but perhaps his vacuum cleaner was broken.
