I chose this cruise because the timing and itinerary worked best for me to relax on a cruise after a land tour. I have never cruised with Costa before. Though my agent said that it is so-so, I decided to give it a try. After 7 days on ... Read more

We choose our cruises by itineraries and desired destinations since little time is spent in a room. The Mediterranea food is average to poor. Dinner menus are fine in that they offer more than you would ever cook at home, although seafood ... Read more

Costa is a good provider of fun, food, pleasure. While the quality of the shows has deteriorated and the experience of the Medusa Restaurant was embarrassing, the overall ship is to die for... the service is as usual, excellent. Must ... Read more

This cruise was not much fun for English speaking guests. No tv channels except news, no movies, slow old ship that spent too much time at sea and not enough time at the ports, all the excursions are too expensive for when you do the euro ... Read more

First I would like to say I called the Costa Cruise line several times prior to booking to be sure, that as a Orthopedic, Chronic Pain and Cardiac Handicapped person, I could get from where the ship docks to the front of the port. They ... Read more

Actually this was only a 2-dot cruise. But seen to the discounted price we, and most others, paid, it was a 5-dotter. In my eyes the ship did not look nice, neither outside, nor inside. This 1:st november-week was warm and sunny each ... Read more

We just returned from a 7 day cruise on Costa Mediterranea. We have been on 5-6 cruises on other lines, but I would say this was our favorite, and for the price, far and away the best value we have ever had on a cruise. We were pretty ... Read more

Just got off this cruise, and could not get off the ship fast enough. Firstly, the OBNOXIOUS, LOUD, rap music playing non stop throughout the ship was so aggravating. Despite complaining it continued all week. The irony was that the ... Read more

Embarkation was a little more organized than noted in some of the previous reviews. At first it was not made clear how the process works. Upon arrival at the port, you hand over your luggage and are given a plastic card with a grouping ... Read more

We had great food, great entertainment. We were more than happy with our cabin, and our dinner waiter. However, the thing that spoilt this cruise was lack of water. They wanted us to pay for every drop we drank. I found some waiters ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its itinerary and great price. The ports were terrific except that the time was way too short in both Dubrovnik and Kotor, less than half a day if you include transportation to and from the old towns. The small old ... Read more
