We have travelled with costa twice, aboard europa and magica,both were very nice.there is such a mixture of different people aboard. we are in our early 30's with 2 kids.i'd recommend it to anyone, you'll have a great time.
There are a wide variety of age groups on any cruise ship but costa ships are geared towards the Italian market hence how good is your Italian? It is difficult to make conversation with fellow diners if you only speak English. Several work colleagues have used this line - all say the ships are good, the food is mostly pasta and the main drawback is only a minority of the staff/ passengers speak fluent English. If this isn't a problem have a great cruise.
My friends and I are off round Asia May 2008 our agees (56-63yrs) and beleive me the younger the better for us, look out guys here we come. I hoping to find out mor reveiws myself about Costa Allegr.
My husband and I went on our fisrt cruise this year for our honeymoon. We went round the Carribean. Would definately cruise again, its great waking up somewhere different every couple of days! The entertainment was good but repeated the same the next week. A cruise is what you make it, we chilled out, we didn't do the Butlins style stuff! Bingo, salsa dancing etc, but one thing about it is the food! You can eat constantly. It's worth trying anyway!!!! Tell him to give it a go, the cruise you're looking at looks lovely!
I just returned from the costa victoria cruise. it was great but not a young crowd. there were mostly couples around 50 years old, or couples with teenage children. if you are wanting to do a cruise to be with young people, i would recommend you dont do it. if you want some quality 'couple' time, its a fun thing to do.
My husband and I went on Costa Atlantica last October and what a beautiful ship, the Italians know how to be flamboyant and sometimes outrageous, the decor was fantastic, I imagine all Costa ships will be similar. We were in a minority speaking English as most were Italian but they are great entertaining people. Ages were mixed, I would go for it and in Asia you wll be spoilt. Anit.
