Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Samsara Outside with Balcony

We were looking for an alternative to cross the Atlantic other than by plane to avoid the jetlag. As this sailing fit in our time schedule we booked a cruise on Costa Deliziosa leaving Ft. Lauderdale March 03.

-To begin with the ship: Costa Deliziosa is an eldery lady in need of a thorough make-over. The entire interior decor and design was retro.

- Our cabin, which was a so-called Samsara balcony cabin mid forward looked tired and worn with stains on the old carpet and a shower curtain not properly fastened. Worse, the bedding reeked, and the linens were worn and had holes in them. The blankets were flimsy and not warm enough.

Cabin Review

Samsara Outside with Balcony

Cabin SB

very poor standard for a Samsara Outside and noisy from above

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Amber Cove is a really nice port, clean and with interesting facilities

St. Maarten

Very touristy

Tenerife

interesting town offering nice strolls

Lanzarote

very nice and easy to discover

Malaga

beautiful town with wonderful historic buildings

Marseille

we very pleasantly surprised by vieux Marseille and really enjoyed our walk through old town.

Genoa

The ship berthed in Savona not Genoa we were amazed by the beauty of this little town.

Naples

well, Naples is Naples so in comparison to other Italian cities we did not find it too appealing.

Just did a city tour on the hop-on-hop-off but beware they are trying to catch customers right outside the pier and then, make them wait until the bus is full. Not recommendable.

Bari

Unexpectedley beautiful city with lots of history and nice to walk about.

Dubrovnik

we took a simple transfer bus from the ship and that did it. Historic Dubrovnik is easily self discovered although we found prices outrageous and a tourist grab.
