Our cruise was a marvelous experience. We had a truly wonderful vacation. Beautiful cabin with balcony. We loved the international flavor of the ship and crew. There was always something exciting going on every day. The staff was vibrant and friendly. They seemed to be enjoying their jobs.

Some of the dishes were very tasty. Other entrees, like the beef dishes were disappointing. The appetizers were great and so were the soups. The sauces were flavorful but the desserts were bland. I think the food could be improved with more spices and herbs. The tomatoes and most vegetables were flavorful.

Our stateroom was MAGNIFICO! We were pleasantly surprised with the upgrade from inside stateroom to large cabin with balcony. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Good size bathroom. Very comfortable bed.

The activities were continuous. Plenty of things to do. There was something to do for everyone. We took advantage of the card and game room and enjoyed dancing and dance lessons in the lounges. We really liked the singers, choreographed shows and a great juggler act in the theater. The casino was fun and even won a little.

Don't miss Cozumel's Paradise Beach Club. You'll be able to walk on the beach, get a drink or bite under the palapas or take a snooze in the shaded hammocks. Also the ruins are very interesting. You can pass on Grand Cayman unless you like to shop. it's a shopper's paradise.

We had a wonderful time with our relatives. Costa is the best cruise ship we've been on. And we've been on four different lines. The ship is 10 yrs old and the accommodations are updated. We were amazed at the value of our cruise and the hospitality of the staff. We will definitely do this cruise again!
