“… We had a beautiful balcony cabin which was kept spotless by our extremely pleasant and hardworking cabin steward Raniell. We rarely had time to sit on our balcony though as there was always so much to do and not enough time to do it…”
– Cruise Critic
“…Our first ever cruise on the Costa fascinosa was excellent. The ship is nearly new and it showed. Everything was immaculate,spotlessly clean throughout,although sometimes the decor was a little bit overpowering.the mezzo restaurant was outstanding,the service was first class ,our table was next to a large picture window, we fine-dined watching the ocean go by.we had two gala nights within the week and if you wished you could wear evening dress .we found the menu to be excellent, one tip, you can select from each course which meant you could have two mains if required.the table waiter was very efficient,pleasant and eager please.we took advantage of the drinks package and it was well worth it…”
