We booked this cruise because of its destinations and reasonable price. Having been on Costa before on several occasions, we were aware of the potential problem with few english speaking passengers but this did not detract from our enjoyment.
We travelled as a group of 8 younger pensioners into dancing and activities, all of which were excellent.
Even the six days at sea from Tenerife to Buzios in Brazil were busy, dance classes, Stretch classes and the entertainment team were excellent.
Beautiful decor, plenty of storage. Down near the water line exactly where the Pilot boat came aboard. very interesting and you get a real indication of the speed. Occasional flying fish seen from sea level, very good. with the curtains pulled back, you often se phosphorescence in the water, nice experience!!
