We booked Costa Pacifica for 10 night Mediterranean cruise for our wedding anniversary. It was our first cruise and i would say that it met and sometimes exceeded our expectations. Value for money was great and with few exceptions everything was awesome.
Cleanliness overall was top.
Reaching places on the ship was easy after we discovered the interactive screens. Sadly, always some of the elevators were out of service.
With the exception of our dinner waiter who was later then other waiters, the staff was very helpful and friendly.
Food quality and variety for us was exceptional. Many serving buffets and hours. We loved sea fruits, bakery, grills, pastas and desserts. We dinned in My Way restaurant. The menu was different each night, with 3-5 options for each meal, italian cuisine at it's best.
Daily and evening events, some free, some paid. We were clearly explained that this is an italian ship and although we enjoyed the italian atmosphere, we felt that some events were for italian guests mainly. English is the second language here.
Theatre shows were ok with some good singers, decent dancers and great acrobats. Some comedy also.
Internet packets are expensive like all cruises, but there are some social packets and even one option to pay for minute.
Excursions were worth it, some a little expensive but it was the best option. We booked northern part of the Lanzarote, Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife, and the 9h all around Funchal (fabulous experience). We chose to visit Marseille and Malaga on our own and it was a good plan.
We absolutely loved the condition of the ship, the design and decorations. Everything reflects a musical theme.
Balcony cabin was perfect. Smoking is allowed in wall attached ashtrays on balcony and public areas. Bed was great, nice furniture, valet was great. Bath was great, bigger then expected. All works, no noise. no smells. You can order extra pillows, toiletries, towels, etc. You can even use the wifi app to order these. Room service is posible for a cost. The TV has few channels, but you probably will spend time doing something else.
Nice little italian port city, Lots to see. Don't miss the Priamar Fortalezza and the cathedral (chappel).
Nice visit. Tries to take a boat to Chateau d'If but it wasn't possbile due to weather. See Notre Dame de la Garde and Le Panier.

We visit Oratava and Puerto de la Cruz.
We took a 9h tour and visited the best attractions. Monte and the toboggan rides, Pico dos Barcelos, Cabo Girao, Ribeira Brava, Encumenada Pass and the best ocean view and lunch at a beach rastaurant in Sao Vicente. Well worth it.View All 57 Island Tour Reviews
