However I just came back from a Transatlantic on the Navigator and loved it. I was actually looking at the Independence of the Seas, but guess I will be fine with the Navigator too. Besides that I'm platinum(might be diamond by the time we cruise) with Royal Caribbean. My e-mail is
Just sharing my BAD experience on Costa T/A last Nov/Dec.
We booked a inside guarantee and the cabin they gave us was so small, it was only meant to be a cabin for a single. We paid for 2 people double occ. They insisted it was a double cabin but it would be impossible for 2 people live in this cabin for 14 days. After much arguing they moved us to a normal sized, for Costa, inside cabin.
The food was really bad, service was poor. Their currancy, on board, was in Euros, not good for Americans with U. S $. Overall not a good experience.
I will NEVER cruise with Costa, again.
I hope you have a better experience on your Costa cruise, but I would NEVER recommend Costa to anyone.
As for RCCL, I would HIGHLY recommend them. I did 3 T/A's with them since April. 2008. Each one was a WONDERFUL experience.
I, also did several other cruises with them and in less than 2 years have 13 cruise credits with them and am Diamond.
I'm booked on their T/A on the Voyager (LOVE that ship) this April, from Galveston to Barcelona and am really looking forward to it. Also, caught a good price a couple weeks ago.
I wish everyone good luck on getting on a, good, T/A and hope you all manage to find suitable travel partners.
I posted for a partner a couple weeks ago but a friend from Phila. decided to join me.
My recomendation to everyone is to go on an RCCL ship.
If anyone books on the Voyager, maybe we'll meet on board.
