Don't believe any bad reviews most of the complaints are from people who haven't cruised in a while and things have changed, not so much for free but this is the same on al cruises. We had such an exceptional cruise the only reason I couldn't give it a perfect score was there were a couple of tiny issues.
20 years ago we sailed on the Costa Victoria and loved it.
This ship had an exceptional price and great itinerary. So we thought we would try Costa again.
Cabins were exceptional, 1250 was a nice big cabin with sofa, lots of room and nice window, cabin 4249 was a square room with obstructed view but with 2 huge windows. Loved the rooms and location of rooms was handy.
Hire a tasi for $120 for whole day to take us to Sloth Farm, Butterfly farm, shopping and Icecream, best day ever
A little bit of shopping, took a bus to Botanical Gardens and had a wonderful time.
Lots of trinket stores at port and entertainment, chocolate factory just a little store not worth going into town unless you are looking for a beach just trinket stores.
Sunday is not a good day to go 50% of the stores are closed, lots of shopping but mostly just mexican trinket stores no wifi that we could find other then Hooters.
