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 ...
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 ...
Was on the CM this last week and had an awesome time! We were due to embark in Venice and flew in the day before and stayed at the best western olimpia in P. Roma. Very beautiful hotel and I highly recommend it. Only one bridge to cross ...
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 ...
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 ...
Costa Mediterranea (Venice/Croatia/ Montenegro/Kefalonia/Corfu)
Costa not as good as Royal Caribbean. Decoration is very gaudy/loud/not matching (don’t know who their interior decorator was but I wouldn’t have him in my ...
Costa Mediterranea Eastern Mediterranean October 2015.
It can be very difficult to get a picture of a cruise line by reading cruise reviews. People experience the same thing but their opinions can differ. The case of ...
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), ...
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 ...
Having traveled on dozens of cruises, several in europe, i feel well qualified to review this cruise. It provided excellent value for money paid, terrific service in our cabin and in the dining room, and was a gorgeous ship. Everything ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Costa Mediterranea 17th to 24th July 2015
Arrived in cruise terminal with several hundred other guests , embarkation was supposed to start at 1400 hrs a numbers system operated deck 1 was called first you were only handing over a ...
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 ...
We had two nights in Venice then a 7 night all inclusive cruise on the Costa Meditteranea .. We had a port of call every day Italy, Croatia Montenegro and Greece .
We had a basic inside cabin that was totally adequate for our ...
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 ...
We booked this cruise direct with Costa as this was the cheapest option available and we arranged our own flight with Ryanair from East Midlands Airport to Venice Treviso as we did not want to stop a few extra nights in Venice and as we ...
I booked my first cruise with Costa and came back with happy memories. I'll try and cover all points and tips which I hope would be useful especially for first time cruisers!
- Embarkation from Trieste, Italy was ...
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 ...
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 ...
