Precisely! The cruise Paul is on, is one of the first for this ship, it is probably crawling with press, especially travel writers like Paul, and other people who favorable opinions can mean huge revenues to Costa, so of course I am sure Costa is putting their very best foot forward. I love reading Paul's daily updates I find it interesting and very enjoyable, but I would also be interested to see in 6 months if they are able to maintain the level of service Paul experienced over the first five days.
