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 have just been on the Costa Meditteranea from Venice to Croatia, Montenegro, Greece etc. If we had read the reviews on here and not had previous experience of Costa, we would have been dreading it. We found the ship to be ... 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

First and last time with this company. The entire crew are like robots, they do not care. Food! I lost 4 lbs on that ship! I am glad they had a stop everyday in different place. I could properly feed myself and bring some real fresh ... Read more

Good things 1st. Locations visted and sail times great. But more time in Dubrovnic would have been better than corfu(everything shut from 2_4pm. So not much to do after a morning excersion and being there all day). Our room attendent ... Read more

We found this cruise at a very convenient price but the topics we are reviewing we understand that no matter how much you pay are good to be aware. Positives: Food was good for Italian and Spanish but Americans or British may suffer ... Read more

This was our 4th time with Costa and each time it exceeds our expectations. Being a coral member we were offered a free upgrade to an ocean view cabin and received fruit and Bubbly in our cabin on arrival. I was a little apprehensive ... Read more

First I have to tell you that I normally don´t write reviews for this site. But I have heard it being mentioned so often, this past week, that I do feel the need to give my opinion. My family joined the transatlantic cruise ... Read more

Just returned home after our incredibly delightful journey across the Atlantic on the Costa Mediterranea with a few day's post-cruise stay in Trieste, Italy. We began our trip with very low expectations due to most of the recent ... Read more

Embarkation in Guadeloupe was a complete and utter disgrace, Costa ground crew where unhelpful, rude, arrogant and showed no respect or compassion to its paying customers. Having arrived at the port with a wheel chair passenger and 3 ... Read more

I'm starting right with an issue that, in my belief, overwhelms any other comment possible on this cruise. Every cruise day, after 6:30 p.m., simply there is no food or drink whatsoever available in the whole ship, except for the main ... Read more

Everyone who complained about the cruise ( mostly the food ) said I couldn't really be objective about this ship as I was a newbie to cruising, therefore I had nothing to compare it to. While that might be valid I truly felt that it would ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise and BY FAR the worst cruise I've ever taken, which is a shame because it was my wife and I's honeymoon. This was her first cruise ever. Needless to say, she doesn't ever want to take one again. Told her not to judge ... Read more

We have never been disappointed to this level in over 30 years of cruising. Starting with the food: First there were no ice tea or lemonade at the meal, which was a first for us and the 3 other couples with our group. Had to ask for ice, ... Read more

The Costa Mediterranea is arguably a beautiful ship. It is our third cruise on this very ship, the years have reduced her status. Had we known about the service or lack thereof we would never have chosen this cruise line. Please know that ... Read more
