Here is the honest truth I have sailed more then 15 times and my last cruise aboard costa Mediterranean was a awful cruise experience the dinning or food was horrible very short schedule for buffets and in between the down time for buffet you had one choice tasteless cheese pizza.

I don’t know how to describe my anger for not being able to eat according to my stomach needs if you were not reading the daily brochure you would have no way to eat any thing besides cheese pizza and 50 cent size sandwiches served from 345 pm to 445pm besides that tea sandwich time which they called you ate cheese pizza.

Granted they did have buffet from 7 to 10 am after ten no food at all nothing then lunch buffet was 1230 pm to 2 30 pm then pizza or tea/sandwich at 345 pm till 445 then only cheese pizza till your suppose to be nice sit down dinner one waiter 6 persons per table a very unappealing dinner menu.

I was so disappointed I had the maître d come to my table and asked for a steak and he replied he had none to offer possible tomorrow I had to make a fuss in front of other guest in which the table thanked me for doing I did get the 3.5 ounce steak that was raw in middle the over all food experience was hard to find and not good upon my find I hated looking for food and usually ended up with tasteless pizza.

The evening shows were worse then the food a couple has been singers and a cruise staff such as cabin stewards were the entertainment unorganized not in rhythm horrible and the last show was even worse which they called roman night which offered crew members dancing with no choreographed dancing at was so terrible, then on top of the bad performance they had guest in some type of a talent show singing worse then bad karaoke to get to go to midnight buffet we went to buffet at 1230 pm in which it was shut down with a 30 minute window of opportunity so we went to bed hungry our last night with no food to be found.

food was horrible mostly cheese pizza and short buffet times and not fine dinning for our nightly dinner a disgrace to the cruise industry

room was nice balcony was nice

no onboard activities except looking for food to eat !!!!!!

did not do any excursions had local driver each day but according to guest at table they had their excursions cancelled due to lack of sign up

was angry most the time because we were both hungry and had too search for really took away from any pleasure we found at the ports.
