"A relaxed experience"

Sail Date: February 02, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I liked the ship's European style very much, it offered a relaxed environment and plenty of quiet and private spots for those searching for areas like these. The staff was very polite at all times. There were a couple of negative issues as listed under the Dining and Excursion areas.
Overall, I recommend the Costa brand and will use in future trips.

Pros: The ship's European style cruising.

Cons: Dinners at the main restaurant.

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food at the self-service restaurants was good and offered a large variety. However, at the main dining it was not very tasty.
Cabin / Stateroom
Some strong odors in the bathroom, that did not go away even with daily cleaning.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Grand Turk Island
Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
Had a bad experience at port La Romana, D.R., this area should not be recommended for travelers, it felt unsafe even on daytime. However, the opposite of Altos de Chavon, which was an ideal location just minutes away.
Don't Miss: Altos de Chavon.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
San Juan, Puerto Rico
This outing can be done by foot. There is no need to pay for a shuttle service. You can see all of the key sites and the old town within minutes of the ship's dock.
