Upon entering the ship you could not help but be impressed, it really is a beautiful ship. from the clear elevators to the masquerade paintings, it is very beautifully decorated.

Pros: European atmosphere, the service, the friendliness, and the activities.

Cons: Nothing

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? Yes!

Ship Quality
It was a very large ship but not in a overwhelming type of way. It was very clean, you constanly saw people making sure that everything, from the pool deck to elevators were spotless. I loved the Italian decor.
Food and Dining
I have to mention that I was very impressed by the freshness of the fruits they were delicious. The sandwich section was great, they had different selections everyday. I enjoyed Tea time everyday, with the different teas and pastries. the main restaurant was also incredible, from its food selectiion to its quality.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a very spacious ocean view, with a queen size bed and sofa. they had ample closet space. it was very clean and nicely decorated.
Service and Staff
They were incredibly friendly. our housekeeper, was amazing. she was always greeting us with a smile and making sure we had everything we needed. our waiters, Alvin and Kirk, were phenomenal. they greeted us by name and memorized our dietary needs. they were very attentive. the front desk was also very helpful, from making reservations to replacing our lost keys twice without complaining. they always had smile on regardless of the time.
The shows were amazing. they had a good variety with good talent. The cruise director, did an excellent job everyday making sure that there new activies and professional shows. the people that led out the activities through out the day were, friendly and full of energy.
Cozumel, Mexico
We went to Chachatnuka park, to swim with the dolphins. it was incredible!!!. they let you do tricks wiht them, from having them push your boogie board to letting you swim on top of them, to kissing them and hugging them. It was a once in a lifetime experience and i really recomend it.
Don't Miss: The dolphins
George Town, Grand Cayman
If you can Snorkel or dive by the ship wrecks and go to cheeseburger reef. if you scuba dive go to the wall, i heard people say it was incredible. I recomend that you book with a reputed tour company or through your ship. we book through the ship and it was great, very spacious and good equipment, the other people on the other ships were packed like sardines. They have great shopping at good prices.
Don't Miss: Shopping!!!!!!!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We went to Gumbalimba park. they had monkeys and tropical birds that you could play with, but besides that, there's nothing else to do. Dont do their canopy tour, it's very small and low. I heard other people say that Tabayna beach is very nice so i recomend that. Gumbalimba is good only for a while. Definately book someting because you cant really do much on the island on your own. There's not much shopping only for souveneirs and it was kind of pricy.
Don't Miss: The beach!!!!!
