Default RE: Costa Atlantica

Looking forward to first class 5 star experience in feb. on this ship. ANy hints I should have.
Do you think a room with a balcony is any big bargain? Are the people dressed very formally? or a little more upscale casual?

Is English the first language spoken in the Caribbean.........do you think because it is Italian it will attract more Italian speaking than english speaking in the Spring.

How was the food?

Thanks. Liz.philip wrote:
