Recommended by friends who had been and we loved this cruise! Flew to Nice and used the Costa coach transfer to Savonna. Embarkation was very efficient and cruise terminal in Savonna comfortable. First stop was Marseille, the cruise terminal is about 10km from town centre with free bus shuttle provided by the port. In Cadiz the railway station is right next to the terminal. In Madeira, St Martin, St Kitts, Antigua and Martinique we shared minibuses or taxis - we were in party of 4 - for 25 to 30 USdollars or euros per person. In Philipsburg the water taxi is great to get you to the beach.
Five days at sea were very relaxing with good activities . We enjoyed the Italian course with Marco and took part in table tennis "tournaments""- we had brought our bats. Food on the Pacifica was superb, our waiter Ramir very helpful and spoke good English. Got a delicious birthday cake for only 11 euros - and card from captain.
The entertainers dealt brilliantly with all the languages, shows were good and plenty of live music and dancing in bars.
We left the ship in Guadeloupe and disembarkation was quick and efficient.
A great cruise and would definitely go with Costa again
A very comfortable cabin with excellent cabin staff, Mr Ricky
