Just returned from a recent cruise from Naples/Mauritius 17/11/2015 - 14/12/15. I decided to do this trip as the places the ship was travelling was very interesting itinerary. However, I returned very disappointed. The passenger in my cabin snored very loudly and sever times requested a change of my cabin but was only offered ear plugs. Surely, there must be cabins for emergency!!! When the sea was rough the cabin squeaked. The walls chaffed. There was plenty of food but the passengers use to load their plates with the fruits and if you were late there was none left. I know it is impossible to control the amount of food being eaten but some control has to be implemented. Oranges & bananas were hoarded by passengers Very ill mannered behaviour among the passengers, never will I do an international trip again. Very ill mannered passengers. I wanted to be in Israel longer, too short a stay and early departures. Poor port stop over. The last stay in Mauritius, the location and the stains on the sheet concluded with a sower taste.
Had the time of my life on the Costa neoromantica. Thanks to the crew and many lovely people on board who enjoyed socialising. Anyone who is sceptical of travelling solo should just do it. Food good and varied. Entertainment varied and always a wide itinary. Trips and excursions well worth doing as places of interest with local knowledge really interesting and fascinating. A very satisfied first time solo passenger. Thank you.
Very strange arrangements for many things on this ship. Eating arrangements are rather bizarre. Can't say had bad experience but not the quality or style I would expect when cruising. Should have known better. Also wish the crew could shut up the fat man with the older over protective wife. He kept making comments which bordered on sexist and racist and complained about food. She just seemed to turn a blind eye but expect she babies him. Great shame that his loud English voice was louder than that of the crew who were rather ashamed of him
