Ship Facts: Costa Mediterranea Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Mediterranea Deck Plans
Costa Mediterenea
Arrival at Nice airport for transfer to Savona, we have an hour delay for the coach to transfer us, but this was ok. We arrived on the ship and our cases arrived straight away to our cabin.

The cabin was good size, very clean and we were very pleased with it - slightly larger than the Royal Caribbean cabins we thought.

In a nutshell - positives:

Very clean ship

Lovely interior, different than others

Good entertainment, lots of different types of activities


Children allowed to run the ship

Adults wore trunks and swim wear in the dining area - rather gross

Food is NOT available 24/7 - pizzas stop at 1pm

After lunch which stops at 2.30 - there is only cheap small sandwiches and cakes available at 4.00 - 5pm before meals

Lots of languages spoken so announcements take a long time

Most entertainment in Italian

They would NOT get you chilli flakes for the pizza in the evening - told they only come out at lunch - we laughed that there were like gold dust!

The drinks are really expensive - a coke 2.70 euros plus 15% gratuity

Overall a good cruise although we prefer the food on Royal Caribbean. The itinery - Greece and Turkey was super and this is the main reason that we choosed the cruise. We would perhaps cruise with Costa again if we managed to get another good deal.
