Costa Mediterranea Cruise Review by goodchoice1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Grand Suite with Balcony

I choose that cruise, because it was the only one for my date and location.

The ship is pretty old, the cabin especially the bed and the shower were very good, but your hear everything from outside ...

you have to pay for everything. The worst is the WiFi ...3 GB for 150€...

The staff of the ship are very poor - they have to represent a high standard, but themselves have a horrible life on board (also the guest act not very friendly)

On the ship we felt like sheep ... there is nobody familiar with you .. you have to stand quiet, as you get told where and when to go... if you want to do your own excursion, they block you, whenever they can... they are trained to sell you and gain extra money

the ship is so old, water was dripping from the ceiling during the meals, at the sauna the roof is hanging down......

And on the ship you feel like in prison.............For us never again!

Cabin Review

Grand Suite with Balcony

The only positive...good beds and a wonderful warm and strong shower

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Everything was cancelled because of the weather except of Genua, but we didn´t like to drive 2 hrs to be 3hrs there


There was no possibility for an excursion because we disembarqued there, we went from Tarragona to Barcelona by taxi

It was not possible to leave the luggage at the ship or at the buildings at the harbour, we had to leave to the airport and from there to Barcelona

but... Barcelona is very nice
