Default Atlantica Service?

The review on this site says the service on Atlantica is really poor. Is this true?

If you check my review, in the Members Reviews Section you'll see I differ!

Actually, superb service!

The cabin steward, waiter and busboy that we had were excellent. Most of the staff (waiters, bartenders, buffet) are from the Phillipines and very hard working. We had some problems with language barrier with some of the staff when we stopped to ask them a question. The food was mediocre. Breakfast was the same everyday (typical breakfast buffet plus an omelet station), lunch buffet wasn't very impressive, we ended up eating burgers every day. The dinner was a 5 course meal every night. The appetizers were excellent such as the scallops, shrimp cocktail, and salmon. The salads were boring, the little Italy course was always good and main course usually delicious. I rarely had enough room to eat dessert although the menu looked great. The farewell dinner is when caribbean lobster is offered. They announce everything in 4 different languages on this cruise because of the high number of Europeans on board. Italian, German, French and English. There were alot of kids on board.

I too have been concerned about the service on the Atlantica. My husband and I are going on the March 3 sailing from Fort Lauderdale. This is our first Costa cruise and I, being the worrier, have researched everything I can about the ship, service, and destinations.

Have you scheduled your cruise and when are you going?

Keep in touch.....Deena

To my knowledge, no reviewer from Cruise Mates has actually sailed on the CostaAtlantica... at least Anne Campbell has not.

I have sailed on the Atlantica. I found the ship to be big and beautiful one of the nicest I've sailed on (16 Cruises ).

I found the food to be below average mass market Cruise Line food .

I found the Cabin service to be good.

I found the Cabin to be the best I've had.

I found the Dining Room service sub standard but adequate.

I found the entertainment to be just OK

Will you have a good time, Yes

Will you gain weight, Yes

Just go with the right attitude and you will have a wonderful vacation.

I guess many experienced cruisers have a problem with the level of service and quality of food on Atlantica.
After 16 cruises I must say I never had a bad time or a bad meal, just some are better then others.

The Atlantica is a beautiful ship that provides a good not a great cruise experience. Go and have a wonderful time
