A truly lovely crossing and so much more on the Costa Mediterranea!

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 Mediterranea reviews blasting the "tasteless" food and other problems. Our personal experience was so much the opposite that I almost feel I was on an entirely ...

I have been on several cruise ships (Royal, Carnival, Norwegian) and this last one on Costa. I will not even try to compare them because they have very little in common. I will start off with embarkment in Miami. We were scheduled to embark at 1300hours in Miami. It was a hot and humid day and they had no lines clearly marked, no water or shade provided for the elderly or kids. The line at ...

Not even a glass of water available after 6:30 p.m. in the whole ship

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 Restaurant. This means that, if you're on first seating (6:30 p.m.) after the show (9:15 pm or later), for instance, not only you don't have any station at all ...

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 be hard to find a more beautiful ship to cruise on. Nay sayers be darned! As mentioned it was our first cruise. Found a great lot to leave our car ( Safe ...

I dont know where to start about this cruise, this is my 15th cruise so I know what to expect. For our first dinner I had the spaghetti bolognese, this was the worse ever and not even warm, went to the Lido deck to have something to eat. Next morning the orange juice is watered down Tang, coffee so strong had to have hot water added and they brought it 10 minutes later so when added the coffee it ...

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 on Costa... All daily food services as well as beverage services close at 2:30 (or sooner). The pizza and burger station remain open until 4:00 some days. On a ...

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 cruise after being on the Mediterranea. Issues started upon arrival. As any cruiser knows, upon entering your room you usually find your room key cards for the ...

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, lemon and butter every night. It took 30-40 minutes to receive the first course and often not all 8 of us would receive our courses together. Often several of us ...

Costa Luminosa: 24.02.2015 Miami, Cozumel, Roatan, Jamaica, Caymans, Grand Turk, Nassau, Miami. The cruise was value for money and to be honest the ship was in really good shape and on a par with any other "mid range" ships we have been on. Balcony Cabin: as big if not bigger than anything else we have been on inc P&O, Celeb, Princess, Norwegian and RC. Tiny TV however with very limited channels ...

Costa Mediterannea a Unique experience

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 experience, you could say the phrase "You get what you pay for" could be tag line for this cruise. One thing nobody complained about was the price and the unique ...
