  3. Costa Fascinosa
Most of the costa cruises depart from Savona port, northern italy, so if you fly to milan, you get a nice 2 hr scenic coach ride to port, with great shots of the alps, and fab views through hills and tunnels. Always go all inclusive, Costa probably do the best deal, approx 20 to 30 euros per person per day, and its WORTH IT! Compared to other cruise lines that want $70 PPPD! How exactly does one get value from that?? Inside cabin is small, but you only really use it to sleep! If you are the kind, stuff your face and drink yourself silly, tons of bars and restaurants on board, and when half the people disappear when moored up, you can take full advantage of a near empty ship. Try the jacuzzis on the top decks, which, on the 14th floor, will give you great views over wherever you are! Goes well with cold complimentary champagne (All Inc) Bugger is, you have to pay tips, usually at least 10 euro per person per day. The room staff are friendly and hard working, but surely the cruise line should simply pay them more?

Good value, always go all inclusive, works out 20 Euro per day!

Cabin Review

Inside Classic
Cabin IC
Small, no wifi unless you pay a fortune, though if you are in port, or are at least within sight of shore, you should get good 3G/4G!
