Costa Classica Review
About This Ship
Pros and Cons
Pros: the layout of these midsized ships makes it easy to learn your way around; duty-free shops have Italian designer goods as well as the usual logo stuff; the observatory has a 360-degree view by day and morphs into a disco at night.
Cons: outside cabins on the lowest passenger decks have large portholes instead of picture windows; there are no self-service passenger laundry rooms; with smoking areas in most lounges, the smell of cigarette smoke can be bothersome.
