hey nycruiser, let us know how the ship is, it will be replacing the atlantica next winter here in florida, she is going back for refurbishment already, only 5 yrs old, we are leaving sunday on the mediterrenna, about 2 1/2 yrs old. i will be posting pic's of the ship when i get back, haven't seen any pic's of any costa ships on cruise photo board yet, from what i have read on this board, and have viewed on the website their fleet of ships are very elegant, i hope this is true. have a wonderful trip and don't take any wooden nickels.

Get ready to be disappointed...I just came back from their May 15th sail. Amazing how rude the employees could be. I felt like the european people in general were anti-american. People on the ship acted like disparate herds racing and pushing to get in front of the line (buffet, elevators, excursions, etc).

Don't bother getting off in TUNIS (not safe and very dirty).

Rome (OK)
Palermo (OK)
Malta (WOW)
Barcelona (WOW)
Savona (do the Portofino tour--WOW)
Palma de Mallorca (OK)--do the CAVE TOUR (WOW)

We spent 2 weeks in Europe (Spain, Italy, Switzerland and France). They worst people we had to deal with were the Italians, everyone else was nice if you knew how to deal with them.

INTERNET PEOPLE--you might be able to access some free internet at the ports using your wireless internet from your laptops.

TRAIN PEOPLE--beware of the train strikes in ITALY. they are famous for their strikes and abandoning everyone with tickets to deal with it. Also, a cheaper way to get from CITY/ROME to PORT is cheap by train ($13 each way).

Hope this helps
