Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Outside Stateroom

We really did not expect this. The Italians were noisy, water was only available when the buffet lounge was open. We had to buy water otherwise. Nothing on the ship is for free. Even when we wanted to play table tennis we had to pay for it. The gym is quite small, so if we wanted to gym and it was full we had to wait for machines.Our trip to Istanbul was cancelled so was the Mykonos port cancelled. The cling on showers, the small cabins. Although Athens was nice we spend three days there, while in other ports we docked 8 o'clock in the morning and sailed again at 14h00. We had to upgrade and pay for an excursion, because there was not enough English speaking people. Do not doe excursions! It is a lot cheaper by bus or by taxi.The shows were not in English so as South Africans we could not attend it.

We sailed with Royal Caribbean in the past and Costa does not compare at all!

Our cabin attendant was excellent! This was the only nice thing I can say about our trip.

Always a good port to visit


Nice and scenic


A good experience


A place to visit!


Will never know. This port was just suddenly cancelled


A walk on the wall is a must and a pizza in the old city was very good
