  3. Costa Deliziosa
We are an active over 70 couple and like to get away from the European winter for a while The Costa arranged bus trip from Austria to the Port of Savona was smooth and comfortable, Embarkation was painless despite the extra USA requirements We did a short walking visit in friendly Savona as the weather was a bit chilly The Ship was spotless and its classic layout still works well - all that is missing is a quiet solarium area Although the weather was mostly calm even on the bumpy nights there was never any discomfort. On some days there was a slight irritable vibration, but no real problem The cabin was adequate and served the purposewell serviced by Alms The food is good - sometimes exceptional and sometimes average, It is no surprise that the menus are Italian flavoured as Costa is an Italian Line. The complainers amaze one - how people can criticize the extensive breakfast selection that caters for all tastes is beyond comprehension. Yes - sometimes dining orders are lost in translation. as the new waiters do not always understand the drawling and yowling American dialects In the MDR Marc, Carlos and Alfredo were stars At breakfast we never had to place an order after the first day- our order came automatically, so good was the attention, Juice,Coffee, Mueisl, Eggs. Toast etc As for those complaining about he lack of pasta - in the buffet there were never fewer than 4 variations daily!!! Spaghetti is not the only Pasta type On the entertainment front there was always something on the go for everyone and the international theatre shows and costumes were varied and excellent The overall service was good to excellent and always friendly. a smile and greeting from passengers also works wonders - these workers are not there to be be abused by ignorant, demanding guests, We did an excursion that was good, otherwise we did our own thing So all in all we had a invigorating cruise with interesting ports

Cabin Review

Inside Classic
Cabin IC
The cabin was adequate. We only use it for showering, hanging up our clothes and sleeping.The places to spend your on-board time are the professionally designed and furnished public lounges and bars, these areas are 99% better than anything found in private homes
