February 2015 - 11 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Costa Mediterranea
The evening food service was entirely too slow. The only evening food option was slow dining room or pay $8 for a hamburger or $35 for the one specialty restaurant. No morning coffee until 7:00 which is unsatisfactory. They closed the lunch line promptly at 2:00 although many excursion groups didn't return until 2 or 2:30 and they closed with them still trying to get food. People were vomiting and had diarrhea. Entertainment was poor; too limited. One night they even showed the movie Hercules in the theater. They only brought in three guests and the rest was their on-board entertainers doing the same twists and turns in different costumes. We cruise for the entertainment and food. Both failed. The only good was weather and islands and our room steward who kept us clean and fully equipped, but the room was nothing special, just the standard cruise room and it had only 1 electrical US outlet. Our shower water became to hot to use and had to be serviced.
