  3. Costa Mediterranea
Having read so many negative reviews, we were very sceptical & even contemplated cancelling before sailing. Thank goodness we didn't. We have been on 13 cruises with different companies and this cruise was by far the best. Mediterranea was scrupulously clean, the service in main dining room (Jayson) , bars (Little John, Chai) very attentive and prompt (after 1st day, your preferred drink brought to you). Our cabin 8131 was kept clean & our request for ice automatically delivered each day. Food was excellent - good variety and top quality in both Buffet & main Dining room. Never once got cold food as some reviews said. The English International Hostess Eve McAlpine was very helpful & went the extra mile to assist were necessary. Embarcation in Abu Dhabi was efficient & we were even given refreshments during the wait. Baggage was delivered to our cabin promptly. Our drinks package was activated on embarcation. Yes, announcements are always in Italian, but always repeated in English, German & Spanish. Excursions were well organised. Disembarcation in Savona also very efficient. We will most defenitely sail again with Costa.

Best Cruise ever
