We enjoyed the rear facing balcony cabin.The room Steward was good the waiters were excellent.T\Rebecca the assistant waiter form Serbia always kept my glass full and was very friendly. I tipped her extra over the auto tips.The food in the dining room was very good with the exception of the unpounded Veal Scallopini which we had to send back as it was so tough. Normally this is a good dish to order,.Also the rock fish was very mushy. I would avoid these two choices.The steaks were better than the last cruise, though my wife thought the Rib eye was a bit tough.The Pizza was terrible and tasted like cardboard. This seemds to have been the case for a while, so I would avoid it. Not sure why this would be. We found the buffet generally good, with the exception of the ice cream which obviously had melted and been refrozen. You can tell when ice cream is crunchy that this is the case.The usually had lemonaide, with the exception of one day when we were told the standard reply"There is none on the ship". Very disapointed in the lack of strawberries or other berries on the ship. This has been the case the past two cruises. Not sure if this is a new cut back but not happy about this. The filet Mignon in the Steak House was excellent as was the Onion Soup and the scallop appetizer. What wasn't good was the cold baked potato and the non creamed spinach. The waiters were agonizingly slow. After two hours we left, skipping desert. Only 5 tables filled that night. Hard to understand.Aslo tedious descriptions of the food which were boring and unnecessary. The entertainment was top notch. excellent Violinist , comedian ,ventriloquist and Princess dancers.easy to get a seat on this small ship. You could come at the last minute, unlike the mega ships where you have to get there a half hour before the show. Bingo only draws 25 people so I won three times and came away with $200.00. The normally silliness connected with Bingo seemed to be gone, although the numbers were called agonizingly slow. We booked allot of ships tours since we had alot of onboard credit.Most were good, except Rhodes where the guide really could understand no English. WE missed one port due to wind, always a disapointment but luckily it was not one of the ports we had most wanted to visit Lesbos, Greece. We docked in Venice when all you could see was fog. amazing job by the captain as Costa did not dock and their passengers were disembarked 150 miles away causing most to miss their flights( Many were in the Marriot Courtyard with us}

Very nicely remodeled ship

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin B5 7116
7116 is a nice large cabin with a large balcony facing rearward. Loved the view, although it did cost a little more.The was a strange Vinegar smell in the bathroom when we returned from Dinner the last night. Didnt complain since it was the last night. Not sure if they were calking around the shower or what.
