I cruised Costa and really enjoyed it. I felt the food was often better then the blander food on other lines, there was a pasta dish every night with dinner but there was no late night Pizza, unlike Carnival.The line dance classes on deck were amazing seemed the whole ship was dancing, it was a great workout plus you got to learn some dance steps. Least favorite things were the amount of smokers on board and the longest ever life boat drill because it was done in so many languages. Entertainment was interesting because you could hear the singers all had accents. The Toga party was fantastic again the whole ship seemed to participate and we got to vote for the guest talent acts like the Romans thumbs up to keep, thumbs down to feed them to the lions. Feeding them to the lions was hysterical (but I won't give away the secrets here!) Value wise it was cheaper then a Carnival cruise. I don't recall any problems with service. If you like to experience different cultures and are a think outside the box type person, I'd say give them a shot they do a good job!
