First, I though this was a joke -- you know, with the cost of the dollor v. Euro.

But, while I have no experience with that particular ship, I took one cruise with Costa (Atlantica, I think it was). Never again. The food (IMHO) was the pits. Everything seem to be "fake." Not cream or 1/2&1/2 for your coffee, whipped "creme" on the desserts starchy soups....

May I suggest that you go to and pose your question there. You'll probably have a better chance of getting responses. You might even find someone who would be/will be on your same sailing!

I did a Costa ship waaaaaayyyyy back in the 70's from Miami to the Bahamas. Ships have changed a LOT since then!!!

Hi Edu: DH and I took a Costa cruise a few years ago and found it to be horrible. We have cruised the Carribean before and, while we enjoy trips to Europe more, we have enjoyed the cruises. However Costa was just a bad experience. The food was pretty awful and that horrible stuff that passes for cream in the horrible coffee still leaves a foul taste in my mouth thinking of it. Over all the entertainment and everything on the ship was just boring. I was ready to throw myself overboard and swim for shore after only two days. Thank goodness we had 7 days in Italy at the end of the trip to look forward to or I might have really jumped overboard.
