Default ex crew member can tell you all!!!

Hi, I am new to this site. Happy, happy Xmas to all of you and the very best in 2006! I am an ex crew member on cruises, Costa in particular. If you want any imfo on cruising, and what to expect from cruising, and Costa lines, then contact me. I will tel you. as it is, with no colourful pictures, the truth, and the truth only. To be honest with you, I have worked for a few companies, but, Costa was the happiest time of my career and the most proffessional of ships. I wish that you all enjoy your holiday with Costa, and tell me all when you return. Would anybody who is sailing with Costa soon please contact me, as I would like to pass on a message to my ex colleagues, one in particular, who I would like to contact again. All the best. Juls

Dear Juls,

I am planning on going on the Magica on the 22 of Jan. I will deliver a message for you if you like. It is my first cruise, so any and all of your suggestions are needed and welcome, espically all the hidden charges. I cant seem to get an answer if room service is free or not. Also where do they hide the menus? Any favorite not so tourist places to go eat or shop while at the ports? I am doing the Eastern route.

Thanks for all the help, just send insturctions on any correspondence you would like for me to deliver.


Maureen

Default Costa Cruise Western Caribbean

Rethinking my plans. Are most of the destinations still a mess after the hurricanes of 2005? Does the Magica dock or tender for the Western Caribbean trip?

Default Costa Mediterrenea

I'd love to hear about this ship. We're staying in a panoramic suite and have not been able to find too much information. Also, I'd be happy to pass a message for you.

Hi Juls
We are leaving Savona on May 2 on Costa Mediterranea, any tips on what to do in Corfu? What shops are on board - is there a duty-free liquor store, and can the liquor be available while on board?
Look forward to any info on this cruise.

hi,
im leaving this sunday for a western carib cruise. its my girlfriend and i's first cruise and we could use any tips or info you would be willing to give us. its a seven day cruise and we are looking to have as much fun for as cheap as possible. is there any way in the world we can get alcohol on board besides paying for drinks at the bars/restaurants? is it better to do the excursions offered independently onshore rather than through the boat? once again, any info would be GREATLY appreciated. please let me know- thanks alot!
Dante

hello juls, nice to see your posting... how thoughtful of you to offer help! before i ask you anything please do tell me whom i should greet for you on board. my question ... should i be concerned about our last-minute, last costa magica cabin available for easter sailing on giotto deck in the next-to-last veranda cabin away from what's looking like a pool deck? my 78-year old mom, husband and i are looking forward to the cruise, but i'm concerned we'll never get any rest in this location. hey - any hints re: must-do's onboard or in roatan or cozumel? and is there a way to find out the cruise director's name and email before we go? thanks for anything you can offer. blessings! rosemary

Do you know anything about the Magica? We are sailing on the christmas cruise. What kind of television is available in the staterooms? Any US stations? Like TNT or USA or NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN? Thanks for your help.

We have cruised 5 other times but all were with carnival cruise lines.

Thanks in advance for the info.

Debbie

We brought several bottles of water onboard with us without a problem. Dont bring too many, you can just refill them with the water that is available in the buffet area (unless you need to be drinking bottled water).

You will be able to bring wine and beer onboard. Just make sure to wrap it up so it doesnt break...the baggage handlers are known to throw your luggae around. Enjoy your cruise!

Default can tell all?

How would I get in contact with a costa cruise director.
e-mail would be easier...
mailing address of any kind would be next easiest....
then a phone number (long distance and $)
