retiredandcruis's Past Cruises

Costa Mediterranea

January 2015 - 12 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Costa Mediterranea

Outstanding staff, poor food

Anywhere, anytime when we met employees, they always smiled at us and said hello; that was the first time on our 17 cruises on 6 differents cruise lines on the past 6 years that we encountered such kindness.

It was the first time we booked a suite #6331 and the balcony worth the difference in price. Of course the cabin itself is much larger.

Quality and selection of food was poor, first gala night, we took roastbeef and it came in with ''corn on the cob'' burned and tiny potato, One of ours was 75% fat. All 6 of us could not believe what they served us. Another evening tuna was hard as rubber. And don't try to go on 9th. floor buffet after 6pm, it is closed. There is only a pizza and dessert bar open but it cost you $8.00

This was our worst experience ar sea.

retiredandcruis's Tips

Pointe-A-Pitre, Guadeloupe - All stores closed on sunday (even McDo). Ste-Anne beach is great but crowed. ($15.00 p/p roundtrip). Some kiosk at the exit of the ship but you better bargain with them, ex : frig. magnet at $5.00. got it for $2.00 next counter...
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Disappointed last year with island tour so we went to Cockelshell Beach...AH. PARADISE. ($16.00 p/p roundtrip taxi)
St. John's, Antigua - Turner beach is great ($15.00 p/p roundtrip taxi), local market on the way back close to the port stinks.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - 5th. time there, so we went to Maho Beach, where the planes fly 50 feet above your head, beside this, overcrowed, no place to sit and 12 feet waves...
Samana, Dominican Republic - Took a ''tuk-tuk'' taxi to get to Cayennas Del Mar beach, which we see from the ship, about 20 minutes away from the dock. Quiet area.
