  3. Costa Deliziosa
Regardless of poor reviews that we read, we embarked on the Costa Deliziosa due to provided price discounts (~70%) for 2 x 10 consecutive days. And, the following is our personal opinion: 1. Food and its variety was very good in taste and the quality terms. Except: a) there was very poor choice of tropical & exotic fruits like Papaya (popular in Central America), Dragon, Pepino,.....etc. Kiwi were to hard and not well matured. b) often we encountered a shortage of water melons. c) often there was an annoying line-up for the food at pick hours d) service over the supper lasted too long (~ 2 hrs). e) free coffee was of poor quality 2.There was too many outdoor cigarette smoking places. The smoke from outside was entering main corridors through the door openings into the Buffet area making difficult to find a smoke-free place. Smoke was even evaporating on walking / jogging path on the top deck. Also, the walking path was blocked by people laying on chairs. Cigarette's smoke from the balcony was penetrating over the day and some night hrs inside of our balcony, hence we were very limited to have the benefits of balcony.

Cabin Review

Balcony Classic
Cabin BC 5296
There was no liquid soap at all in the shower's dispenser over full 3 days regardless of monitoring the case right on 1 day to room cleaning lady and in the office. And, the major problem was the cigarette's smoke entering our room as soon as we opened the balcony.

However, on our second tour (Feb 01 to Feb 11 2019) the service man was excellent in maintaining our cabine #4336. Regardless of his cleaning duties he fixed not easy problem with not working TV and the lack of remote control.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Rainforest Tour
    Very nice trip, but the guide forgot to bring the CD to those people who agreed to pay for the life photos made during the trip.

    Also, generally all guides over all excursions were repeating few times to remember tipping them and drivers. It is annoying and it should be up to people's discretion.
