:mad: we come back.Beautiful vacation is over

WE had beautiful cruise,here is my review(please forgive my english)

1.embarcation was bad,we been first one who borded the ship,so for us was no problem,but for other people ...Lagage got soaked under the rain,terminal is very small for this ship.I have to say you cannot blame Costa for this,its US customs who did a very bad job.When they open terminal they had only 1 skaner working to go :eek: second one was broken!!but even with 2 it was not proper for 3000 people to go on board.Porters are very rude,they aks for tip before they take your luggage!but againe nothing to do with Costa,only US customs to blame.

2.Service was very good no matter where you go,cabin steward,waiters,bar sevice every one very professional and polite.

3.food-I have to admite we been on 4 cruises before(incl. Costa Atlantica)this time we had THE best food.Breakfast is ussual for any ship,but lunch and dinner is very good, specially if you like sea food.Go aroudn the buffet they have many stations,incl. health station on aft of the ship(dont ask me what they serve there ,we never eat healthy on ship)));)

4.Etertaiment -exellent!!!Costa is well known for beast entertaiment and they did it againe THX Max))))

5.shore excursions.....well once againe choose one with water activities,there is nothing to see on those islands.

San Juan is beautiful looks like Europe.Casa DE Campo got changed to privet island(for my opinion for good)we took ferry excursion for Altos DE Chavon ,village is beautiful,but I am not shure if this trip was wors $40.00

and be careful if you get sea sick easy,40 min trip can be very bumpy.

Grand Turk-our favorit island,nice beach.

St.Thomas we took Mountain Top and Coral World excursion:cool: ,unless you have kids Coral world its nothing special to see for adults,we had a quick tour and went to the beach(very nice).

 

Over all we had a exellent vacation.BUT we will never go Hollidays againe!

to many kids,to many people who dont care about there kids.I dont know how can you let your kid sit in very hot jacuzzi for hours(forget the part they are not supposed to be in jacuzzi at all)In each Today they say-please no kids in jucuzzi,casino e.t.e.t,but I dont blame kids,I blame parents.Costa did had security going around the pool and casino,but what really can they do?pull you kid out of jacuzzi?We saw only one family with very well behaved kids(British of cours:D )

 

one more thing-people please if go on cruise take a pair of pants with you,its really look stupid when some one dance having shorts on,when everey one else in Tux and long dresses))))

please if you have any quastions ask,I will be happy to answer

Did you go to the private island of Catalina in LaRomana? We are having a hard time trying to figure out what to do on this stop.

What beach did you go to on Grand Turk?

 

We did go on privat island after excursion,they have dance show ,lunch and some water toys for fun)))Just go to the beach and have a wonderful time)On Grand Turk we just went to the beach,its much better than privat island,not so crowed(Only one ship in port)and you dont have to take tender ,just walk from ship)))my advise book your seat first,than go shopping))if you dont like to be on sun,limited amount of cabanas avail.:o

I know people went Sea Trekking and horse riding,but its not for us))))

Hi there, I have already stayed at Casa De Campo as a land vacation so the port will not be a good stop for me. Did you book your excurision to Catalina Island thru Costa or do you have a choice of carriers when you disembark from the ship. How much did it cost you....Thanks

Ther was couple more available like river trip to Casa De Campo $66.00pp

I would stay on ship,or go on privet island better.Ride to Casa is 40 min and if you have rough sea......:eek:

I'm happy to hear that you liked the food..I have read some negative reviews about this. I've only gone on Princess where they have a 24 hour buffet open and do not bother with midnight buffets..do they still have Midnight buffets on Costa?

 

Thanks

Yes,they do(I think only company left with midnight buffet every night)))

and pizza bar open till 1:30?:confused: not shure.food was really very good,specially if you like sea food,thay have 2 buffet station 1 main (differnet food every day)and other one near entry with Italian buffet .

If you dont like some thing in dinning room just ask waiter to bring you something else.(I did it only once ,because I ordered too much of pasta and rizzotto,so rizzotto got changed to salad:D
