Well the whole holiday far exceeded our expectations and I would definitely recommend a cruise with Costa.
Firstly the flights with Emirates were amazing although we did have to run across Dubai Airport on way out as we were late leaving Madrid.
The locations we visited on the Cruise were all excellent apart from Malacca on the last day but we decided to stay on board for the day so can’t comment. Koh Samui and Langkawi were breathtaking and we did our own overnight trip to Phi Phi Island while we were docked in Phuket which I Would recommend to everyone. Will definitely be returning to each of the above.
On board the staff were excellent, the Piu Gusto package we had was really good and saved us a lot of money. We ate most nights in the Sinfonia restaurant and the food was amazing. The only blemish was the food in the buffet restaurant and the lack of local cuisine. There was no Thai or Malaysian food apart from last 2 nights but I think others had commented about this! Luckily I love Italian food and culture and the cruise is totally geared up for Italians although there was a good mix of nationalities and ages
I can’t thank you enough for your help in making this trip a true holiday of a lifetime.
