Not likely on Costa again

Sail Date: February 09, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My 19th cruise on 7 different lines, first on Costa. Well below average on service, shows, food selection and quality. If price and itinerary are equal, pick Carnival, RCL, HAL, Disney. There was nothiing special about Costa. Our waiter never told us his name, or asked us for ours. I was told by the purser that I couldn't adjust the gratuities!! I could give more, but the standard tips were not negotiable. I made it clear they were voluntary, and finally they allowed me to change the amounts. Overall much lower than our other cruises.

Pros: Ports, condition of ship, embarkation, debarkation

Cons: crew, service, shows, food

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? No.

Cozumel, Mexico
Take the ferry to Playa for a change. You can also get to Tulum for 2.50/pers.
George Town, Grand Cayman

Don't Miss: beach
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Paid 65 for our own cab and "tour guide" that drove probably 80 miles around the island. We stopped at many places, he answered many questions. We had him for almost 4 hours.
Don't Miss: beach and seeing the local island life
