Travelling on the Costa Atlantica would be a good ship to go on for a first-time cruiser. With no previous experience on other ships or expectations, the trip would be acceptable and even pleasant for some. The good points about Atlantica is the relative ease and expediency of embarkation and disembarkation.
Everyone we met thought the entertainment was great. I found the performances polished and costumes impressive. The food was fair, but selection very limited. Desserts at the buffet… Read Full Review

This was our 12th cuise and the first and last on Costa. After boarding we find out that kids ruise free in the same cabin as parents. Needless to say there were well over 500 children on this cruise. Seems that could have been mentioned as we booked direct with Costa. The staff would be best described as surly. The food was average at best. The dining room service was so slow that dinner usually averaged over 2 hours.Even getting a glass of water at dinner involved begging. We have previously… Read Full Review

Luckily we did meet some other Canadians and had a good time because of them - it was not because of anything Costa did. The smoking onboard is still prevalent ... and unpleasant ...
We would never go on another Costa cruise - there are much better experiences out there for much less money… Read Full Review

I don't mean to trash the ship. It's kind of fun in a nutty, Vegas way, as many ships are. It's just that this is not really a cruise for North Americans and besides, you know what? The Canadians on board didn't even merit a lifeboat drill. It was held the day before we left… Read Full Review

My boyfriend and I booked a last-minute Caribbean Cruise with Costa Atlantica the beginning of January 2006. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our time together - the Caribbean is always such a beautiful place to visit - but I had some concerns about the cruise itself.
I would suggest that you not recommend the Costa cruiseline for anyone wishing to go to the Caribbean. The cruiseship, Atlantica, was a beautiful one, I do concede that. The interiors were fashioned after famous Italian cafes and… Read Full Review

I would not recommend the Costa Cruise Lines to anyone. If this would have been our first cruise we would never want to go on another cruise. The waiters and room stewards, and bartenders were great!! Passengers were very rude!!!… Read Full Review
