Costa Classica Review
About This Ship
The single main restaurant on each ship serves open seating breakfast and lunch, with dinner in two assigned seatings. Breakfast and lunch are also available at the Lido buffet, where seating is indoors or out. Dinner buffets are scheduled for certain nights during the cruise, as are traditional midnight buffets. An upscale alternative, reservations-only restaurant on Costa neoRomantica carries à la carte charges—a perk for suite passengers is a complimentary dinner for two there. The Samsara specialty restaurant on Costa neoRomantica is complimentary for passengers in Samsara Spa cabins and suites and requires reservations and a service charge for all other passengers on a very limited space-available basis. Each ship has both a pizzeria and a patisserie, and 24-hour room service is available.
