Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 09, 2008
Ship: Costa Mediterranea
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
They did not have Wi-Fi and the internet service was irregularly operating, even in still port. Day and evening entertainment were good. Security blew us off and referred us to "information" when we informed them that an Italian woman had struck my wife in her back quite hard while my wife and the rest of the audience were giving a "standing ovation" during an evening performance. Because, the woman gestured belligerently, she could not see. We did, however, enjoy the company of many other foreign passengers.

Food and Dining

The food quality and variety fell short of other cruises we have taken.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The cabin and wait staff were friendly and helpful. There was an anti-American attitude from foreign passengers and crew. Crew actually looked past us while we waited in line to ask questions to answer others in back of us; we must have been invisible?!

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
They did not require hand cleaning before entering the dining areas. Other ships direct passengers to the cleaning stations or present them with hand wipes.
