Ship not prepared for many sea days

Costa Pacifica Cruise Review by Nicholas II

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2017
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Outside Classic

This is an 8 day cruise with three ( 2 consecutive ) sea days.

I don't know why the crew insisted on keeping the lido pool roof closed during all sea days (despite of sunshine and 27oC) creating an awful combination of food smell + pool chlorine + workout sweat, and isolating the others decks (10 and 11) from all the pool parties and contests. Nobody in our party of 22 wanted to go there.

The lido buffet has insuficient lines for all the crowd on sea days, and many lines are permanently closed. Water machine on lido never had ice.

No pizza, no ice cream or sandwiches on lido. No fruit juice machines after 11 AM.

After 22:30h, it is very difficult to find food, there is only one line open at a time by night.

By the way, some of the Costa Cruise Line policies are not kind: no free tap water during dinner, no laundries, no towel huts on pool.

On the other hand, I saw top theater shows, entertainment staff is very good and guest services solved all my issues quickly.
