  3. Costa Mediterranea
The ship sailed from a different port in Amsterdam than all the other ships. Many people went to the wrong port on embarkation day and had to take a 40 Euro Uber ride to the correct port. The itinerary was good with long days in port. The dining options were VERY limited. There were times that all the restaurants & buffets were closed. Not even coffee or Ice Cream machine. When they were open there was not a good selection in the buffet.... a lot of repeat items and the staff actually scooped it out for you so that you didn't take too much. The quality and flavors of the food was not very great. The beer & wine package during lunch & dinner was limited to very cheap quality. The spa only had 4 lounge chairs and the packages were double the price of normal. The room was clean but showing age. The shows were not memorable.

Clean, good itinerary but poor amenities
