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 ... 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

This was our second time to cruise with Costa and we are experienced cruisers. We chose this cruise line because we were happy with our previous one with Costa as well as the itinerary. The itinerary did not disappoint, Embarkation was ... 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

To pre-register on Costa website you need lots of patience. Their website is not very advanced. Boarding in Miami was easy. Ships was clean and neat. Lots of passengers get on at French Guadeloupe - so you have about 85% of the ship ... Read more

Just when I thought I was a seasoned cruiser I took this Costa Mediterannea out of Miami and what a shock I got. First let me say that my observations are not really to be critical just to alert others of an alternative cruising ... Read more

We got a real good price for an inside cabin so it made the trip worth it. The ship was refurbished in 13 but already shows wear and tear. Embarkation was a pain. First they won't let you take your own luggage on the ship. You have to give ... Read more

I was advised against cruising on Costa lines and rightly so! The shower has no cold/hot water pressure regulators so you are either getting cold or scalding hot. The dining room is 100% staffed with waiters from Asia who learned a bit of ... Read more

Costa is having problems that worsen each year. Many blame Carnival since Costa became part of the Carnival Corp.; others insist Costa has tightened purse strings because of the tragic loss of Costa Concordia. We have cruised on 25 Costa ... Read more
