Costa Pacifica Cruise Review by AgataGracjana
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Inside Classic
The ship Costa Pacifica – it is not the biggest and most splendorous one, but clean and very well maintained, which is unusual for Italian companies. Costa was bought by Carnival some time ago and you can really see the American influence on their service.
My favourite place on the ship was Amarillo Cioccolateria. The best coffee is being served here, and you get advised on coffees like you were in a coffee factory! Absolutely fantastic!
The swimming pool had warm water, so that children can spend hours in it and do would not get cold. ( and believe me - they do!)
Waiters – nice, helpfull, always smiling
We were very also positively surprised with all the maintainance services on the ship. One evening hour toilette broke down, I informed the guest service, and within 30 minutes the problem was solved!
Very tasty food. You have a wide range on vegetables, bread, meet, fresh made pastas (their pastas are fantastic – my daughter was eating 2 plates of it every day! And the cook preparing them always knew what would be the best for a child). Also the food in the restaurants during the dinner was delicious! High quality, various dishes, cuisines and we were served very quickly every evening ( we were there with 5 year old child, so it was really a priority )
Entertainment. Every evening there was something worth seeing. They have an incredible tenor who was on stage 3 times during the cruise and every time got a standing ovation. Absolutely brilliant!
Also on the last evening the tenor sang in the restaurant during our dinner which was a lovely goodbye for all of us.
Well skilled dancers and very interesting choreography every evening.
We also enjoyed the animation team. They were on duty from 10 AM till midnight every day and honesty, they kept everyone entertained.
Kids club – wonderful, patient ladies who can communicate in English, German , Italian , Russian and other languages. Our daughter just loved it there.
Peppa Pig is present on the ship and you can take pictures with her for your children, apart from those taken by professional photographers. That was fabulous! Not like we experienced it on other ships, where you can see the Mascot once or twice during the cruise. Children could get engaged in various activities with Peppa almost every evening, and there was a beautiful Peppa Pig playground in the top deck with pool (warm water).
We were there for my husband’S birthday and he got some free “stuff” from Costa (birthday picture, cake and offer for spa treatments).
Also on the gala evening we got invited to the theatre for cocktails with Captain, which was a wonderful surprise.
So now we are searching for another cruise with Costa, because this was definitely worth the money and the time we spent there. I truly recommend!
