Joanne, please tell me why you would go to the trouble of reincarnating a 5 year old thread that was dead and buried and resting in peace? Not to mention that someone who shares your name already posted on it 5 years ago?
It is wonderful you enjoy Costa and they suit your tastes. You seem to pretty much be their target market. I returned from a Med. cruise on the Concordia a month or so ago. It was not a horrible cruise, but it was the least enjoyable of any cruise we have taken so far.
As my MIL says... there's a lid for every pot, while Costa may be a good fit for you, it doesn't fit us at all.
