Just returned from a cruise aboard the Costa Atlantica. Must say I was very pleasantly surprised. I had taken two Costa Cruises prior to this one and was not at all pleased;but: because I liked this itenerary I decided to give it another try.. The ship was beautiful, the staff very accomadating, and the smoking not a problem. Unlike my other Costa experiences, this was very well organized. We were assigned an English speaking Hostess, who was very helpful throughout the entire cruise. I will not hesitate to take another Costa Cruise.
