We sailed August 31 to September 7, 2008 roundtrip from Venice Italy to Dubrovnik (Croatia), Bari (Italy), Izmir (Turkey), Istanbul, and Katakolon (Greece). Costa reminds me a lot of the Carnival cruise line, except most things on board Costa are in Italian. Both have bright, gaudy ships and similar entertainment.

While in the Mediterranean, my wife and I also sailed on the MSC Musica cruise ship, which featured slightly better dining room food and much better nightly entertainment in the theatre. Both ships offered shore excursions in multiple languages, since passengers were from al across Europe, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.
