A Good Cruise for the Price
Costa Mediterranea Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: February 16, 2008
Ship: Costa Mediterranea
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The price of this cruise was better than most for a balcony during a school vacation. The ship was very clean, and the staff was delightful. Our room was great with more than usual storage for clothing.
Each day during lunch the buffet offered an international section featuring foods from a specific country. (Greek, Chinese, British, Mexican). My husband truly enjoyed this.
I found the evening dining room choices difficult because they featured less standard fare which I prefer. However, othersat my table thought the food choices were fabulous.
We found it difficult to navigate around the ship due to a more chopped up layout of public areas. Discovered some areas late in the week. We recommend that you do a serious tour early in the week.
There was a high percentage of European passengers, so English was not as prevalent.
Deck chairs were a cinch to get at any time of day! (The typical age was over 50)
Nightly shows (we attended 3) were very good.
