Costa Mediterranea Review
About This Ship
Pros and Cons
Pros: if earlier Costa ships were Armani (cool and serene), then these are Versace (sexy and slightly outrageous); duty-free boutiques offer enough Italian designer items to satisfy most shopaholics; forward on the outdoor promenade decks are serene retreats in the form of enclosed terraces.
Cons: Italians consider cappuccino a breakfast beverage, so ordering it in the dining room following dinner is frowned upon; frequent announcements are annoying; coffee is available at numerous bars, but there is a charge.
