My wife and I chose this particular cruise because of the whole package being offered, the flight, start location, ports of call, and generally inquisitive as to what we would get for the unbelievable price. With regards to the ship we could not find any fault at all with everything in general, the cabin superb, service to be believed, everything in our opinion 5 star. We had the drinks package and it more than covered all that we required, the bar staff were so attentive and nothing was too much bother, and Kumar the head barman at the bar on deck three could work at any 5 star bar/restaurant. The food presented at dinner in the Fiorentino restaurant, beatifully presented, service second to none, wine glasses filled without asking and good quality wines on offer in the drinks package. All in all a wonderful experience. We will be looking to cruise with Costa again perhaps next year when the new ship Emeralda comes into service.
Very good cabin, exactly the same as cabins on board Celebrity ships, well lit, balcony a little smaller but still usable. Cabin service first class, everything changed daily, immaculately clean, cannot fault in any way.
We never used the excursions so we are not able to comment, however the shuttle bus service at each port was totally excellent.
No excursion taken
Used the shuttle bus into town centre
