was recommended cruise by iglue,had cruised twice before with different lines if your thinking of a Costa cruise I highly advise you look elsewhere ,the ship was spotless that's the good point over and done ....English is the last language spoken,its pot luck if you get a waiter whose not moody, the buffet is like a cattle market free for all with pushing in and general bad manners,we waited 1 hour and 15 mins in between the starter and the main when we went dinning...,making tea in the cabin is forbidden,you have to pay for everything other than breakfast time when tea, orange ,coffee is free,a small beer will set you back £4 every thing is overpriced and will make a big difference to your budget,there is nowhere to buy toothpaste or small items on board but you can get a high end watch or handbag,the constant having to pay out soon puts a damper on things,wouldn't be so bad if the prices were not so outrageous .The main theme is Italian so expect cold meat and sweet cakes for b/fast,we tried the full English and I am not exaggerating when I say the fried eggs were fridge cold and the rest was disgusting. evening buffet was OK with more variety available,the entertainment ranged from good to childish,my son in laws father collapsed in palma and we rushed him back to the ships doctor who would do nothing till the cost was explained,there are silent light switches in the cabins but very noisy door locks that wake you up in the middle of the night by some inconsiderate door slamming...the tv has over 80 channels but only 3 are English and 2 of them are news channels I could go on but I think you get my point ..look elsewhere .
