Sample text

The interiors of the line’s huge new ships are by Carnival’s former designer-in-chief Joe Farcus, who took inspiration from Italy’s traditions of painting and architecture but filtered it all through his signature “more is more” style—think Venice à la Vegas. Passenger Profile Costa attracts passengers of all ages who want lots of fun and action and who like the idea of a more European cruise flavor in the Caribbean. Italian Americans are heavily represented aboard the line’s Caribbean cruises, and, in general, Costa passengers are big on participation—the goofier, the better: I’ve never seen as many guests crowding the dance floor, participating in contests, dressing up for costume galas, or having a go at mask painting or other crafts as I have aboard Costa’s ships.

Each ship is glamorous, exciting, and comfortable, offering sleek modern styles accented with cutting-edge art collections. Its most recent ships, the five Solstice-class sisters, are, bar none, the most elegant megaships in the cruise world, and the line delivers the goods in a lot of subcategories too: Its spas are among the most attractive at sea, its decor the most original, its art collections the most compelling, and its restaurants among the most appealing (especially aboard the Solstice-class ships, but also the alternative restaurants on its Millennium class).

With a father from Puerto Rico, a husband from Trinidad, and timeshares in The Bahamas and Florida, it is clear that the Caribbean is in her blood, close to her heart, and always on her mind. Acknowledgements With so many spectacular port destinations in the Caribbean, this volume wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of so many. I’d like to thank my co-authors for their contributions, and also Angelo Berkowitz and writer Matt Hannafin. Our editor Christine Ryan was steadfast throughout the process.
