The buffet becomes a latenight bistro so you can have a light or even a full meal at two in the morning if you so desire. This feature has replaced the traditional midnight buffet on Princess vessels. The newer and bigger the ship the more Personal Choice there is. The modern and rapidly growing Princess fleet features all-white exteriors with generally graceful lines and gentle curves. The cuisine on Princess is excellent, falling somewhere between Carnival and Celebrity in sophistication. The same is true of the service throughout the ship.
The one big criticism that often is heard about Costa is that their food isn’t all that good. Well, it is good – just not great. Most other lines do a better job in this regard, but Costa has made some improvements here too. Cuisine quality also seems to vary more from ship to ship than it does on most lines. The newer and bigger ships are generally the ones where the food seems to have improved the most. In any case, they do have excellent pasta, pizza and midnight buffets. 8 Despite recent refurbishments and the fact that this ship isn’t that old to begin with, there is no hiding that this ship looks something like a converted freighter.

Of the many beautiful public areas, the pièce de résistence on each ship is the upper portion of a fountain-flanked grand stairway that is home to a wonderful lounge (the Caffé Florian, a replica of the one in St. Marks Square, on the Atlantica; and the Roero Bar on the Mediterranea). Both are visually magnificent and have a level of sophistication that is the antithesis of the light-hearted and festive atmosphere elsewhere on these ships.
