Costa Atlantica – Fantastic Cruising Experience
Travelling on the sea gives us a splendid experience. Not all the people in the world get the opportunity to travel on cruise. Travelling by air has become very common and a lot of people do it on a daily basis. However, when it comes to ships it is quite different. Most people travel by cruise for a vacation probably for a month or so. This is because travelling by Cruise in considered a luxury. Now let’s look at some of the features that make it excellent and splendid to travel. I have got a chance to look at one of the Cruise and that is Costa Atlanta. This cruise has got a fantastic design and is known for its interiors.
Although a few places the designer has tried to cut costs, it attracts the audience through its designs. The crew that visits this ship is just amazing. I was surprised to hear many different languages when I entered the ship. Some of the language sounded very funny, when listened for the first time. For some time I was surprised as well to listen to them. The crew seemed intent on passenger service with the only exception in the main dining room during open seating and that I think was more lack of staff than lack of interest. Still this problem with open seating is not limited to Costa and can be a problem on any ship with open seating.
There are many areas inside the ship where the public can visit and this includes both indoors and outdoors. One of the cabins that I visited had a French balcony with double doors with a rail across. This rail helped to open the door easily at night. The ship also has a lifeboat which was right outside. Food inside the cruise is just amazing although the buffet is limited both during the selection and service hours. There is a main dining room however; it usually is empty as there are open seating during the breakfast and the lunch hours. When the dinning is crowded, as mentioned earlier you can listen to different languages from different corners. However the dinner hours are crowded and there are no open seating during this time and are open quite late.
The Cruise has a standard cabin with Moving Boxes. It also has a shower with plenty of space around. With the help of moving boxes there is a lot of storage space as well. The couch appears to convert to a twin bed and as such is only comfortable by careful placement of pillows, still better than many I have seen on ships. Cabin colors to my taste are somewhat disharmonic but since she will be in dry dock in a few weeks maybe this will be fine tuned. There are plenty of places for the smokers to have a smoke the only exception being the dining room and main theater. Smokers sit right beside main walkways and avoiding the smoke is not possible. Although I did not experience it others at my dining table had an issue with smoke drifting to their balcony.
There is lot of entertainment and dance available like music and dance. The production shows and on board entertainers are of very high quality. Dancers are particularly strong and singers are enthusiastic but more limited in range than the material they attempt although most selections hit the mark. Apart from this you also have Classical and dance music offerings are truly exceptional.
Spa is also available for people to visit. Most people who visit this place are the North American passengers. I just spent a day and the moments I had been completely exiting.
