It met all our expectations.
Our stateroom steward service was again excellent. The food and wine waiters in the dining room were attentive and helpful.
We had a sunset verandah stateroom, which was quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of other areas of the ship.
We enjoyed the time ashore at all the ports we visited and had a marvellous warm sunny day cruising Doubtful, Dusky and Milford Sounds. This was one of the highlights of the cruise.
It there was anything that was disappointing it was the entertainment. Nearly all the acts were Australian and they did not have the professionalism, sophistication or finesse of the entertainers of our previous cruises. It was a pity there were no New Zealand acts.
Cruising around New Zealand is a great way to see many parts of the country from a different perspective. In our view the cruise is to be highly recommended.
The bulk of the passengers are Italian so be prepared for that. The food was good though not spectacular, the formal dining at night was good, a lot of courses but small portions. We bought a wine package which was good value, 5 bottles of wine and 7 bottles of water.
We started from Venice and stopped at:
Bari - Dirty, not much to see
Katakolon - Olympia was very interesting, cheaper to hire a car and drive yourself up compared to the excursion from the cruise.
Santorini- Did the excursion to Oia, just amazing...
Mykonos - No excursion needed, you can walk yourself round
Rhodes - Great shopping
All in all very happy with our cruise and would choose Costa again if the right itinerary
The ship was everything we expected and more,not for a minute would you think there were over 3000 people onboard.
The room was spotless and well laid out ,the balconey was a good size complete with table and chairs.
Selection of food was excellent with plenty to choose from and a wide selection of tea and coffee.
Ports of call were great, service on board was friendly and attentive,the entertainment was second to none.
We highly recommend cruising as a fabulous relaxing holiday, our suggestion is to pay the little extra to up grade to a balacony cabin, it is surely worth it!
Looking forward to our next cruise .
