Great itinerary and great cabins!

Sail Date: August 06, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

I felt the staff shouuld have catered more thowrd English guests, particularly guest services. My cruise was 90% Italian passengers. Food was less than average.Butler to suites was unnecessary and unprofessional. Specialty restaurant was horrible, expensive and only one restaurant offered. Entertainment was horrible.

Pros: Itinerary and size and layout of suites

Cons: Food and non-English speaking staff

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? No.

Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Very unprofessional and lacking in organization. Unmotivated and undirected. Majority of staff was non- English speaking or weak in English.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice size balcony. Spacious suite with three sinks and a nice bathtub. Could have nore than one Englsih speaking channel and better selection of movies.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Old Town
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Unremarkable excursion to a remarkable place
Don't Miss: Site of Olympics
Mykonos, Greece
Short stop
Don't Miss: Paradise beach - wild!
Bari, Italy
Excursuon was a hour long drive to a non-descript beach with no food provided but a snack stand with free ice cream coupons. Not wirth it. Shoddy lounge chairs and resort is advertised as new but it is tacky.
Don't Miss: Nothing
Santorini, Greece
Take cable cars and walk down- line for cars is mong. Short site
Rhodes, Greece
Close, convenient town
Don't Miss: Old Town
