First Time Cruise - Costa Fortuna

Jump to last reply

I am taking a Costa Fortuna cruise of the Eastern Med in early Nov. This will be my first ever cruise - I'm from the US. I have not read much on the boards about Costa or the Fortuna specifically. Anyone have any info for me? It looks beautiful on the website. We have an outside cabin but I don't yet know which one or deck. It is with a Collette tour that begins in the Italian Lakes. I understand a Collette rep will be on board & it has been suggested to wait till on board to book excursions with the rep.

I also understand that it is the off season in the Greek Islands so not many shops will be open. Guess this is why the cruise was such a good deal! I was also told that when the shop owners see a cruise ship pull into port that they usually open the stores for that time.

Any tips for me would be appreciated.
Thanks!
