My review is written in 2 sections for reasons that will become apparent. I'm reviewing the service and food etc, then an incident that had a major impact on our trip. This is our 5th Costa cruise. Despite what is written by others we ... 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

Hi, We are an English couple, 60 years of age who have just completed our first Costa cruise. This was on Costa Mediterranea, 7 days down the Dalmatian coast in late April 2016. To put our comments in context I should add that we have ... 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

This cruise exceeded all our expectations. Accommodation, ship, staff and the food was simply some of the best I have had on my dozen cruises. The passenger make up was mainly Italian, but few English but many English speaking foreign ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation - Fast and efficient. Gym - Antiquated equipment. Much of it should be replaced. Entertainment - In the theater...I only went to the shows where the ship's singers/dancers performed and the crew talent ... Read more

We cruised on this ship in December 2015. The ship itself was very clean and well maintained if somewhat flamboyant in the decor, still everyone's taste is different. However if you are English speaking beware. The announcements on ... Read more

After reading some reviews we were slightly aprehensive about the cruise but l can honestly say l don't know what people want. It's an Italian line so they do it Italian style which is fun, laid back with a relaxing atmosphere. A real ... Read more

We boarded the ship at Trieste where l have to say was very disorganised, whether it was due to the hurricane strength winds l don't know. Anyway after boarding we went straight to our cabin which was the largest inside cabin we've had. It ... 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

We had a great cruise, spoiled by a few incidents and poor follow up. We embarked at Trieste, a great town where I would have liked to have spent more time. We visited Split, Kotor, Argostoli (very forgettable - stay on the boat), ... 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

I dedicate this review to the people working on the ship, especially the people cleaning the rooms and working as waiters. These people are so hard working, they speak several languages, they smile all the time, help you any way they ... 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

We heard many negatives about Costa but went against them and chose this cruise line because of the Mediterranea's Adriatic port intensive itinerary, round trip Venice, and the reasonable price . . . and so glad we did. Day 1: Venice, ... Read more
