Ship Facts: Costa Concordia, A Look Back Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Beware Costa cruises!
I've cruised on cheap and expensive ships and enjoyed them all .However, Concordia was to be the exception.

Embarkation and disembarkation were quick and efficient - a breeze!

The cabin, apart from its location near entertainment areas, was good and the cabin staff excellent.

The colour scheme of the ship has to be seen to be believed - brash!

The shows, especially the dancers, were good.

The staff, apart from those selling you something, were not really happy with their lot.

I found the food in the main restaurants good. However, it was poor in the buffet with little choice.

The safety drill didn't appear until near the end of the cruise - amazing!

Smoking is allowed in several public areas on one side of the rooms, but pervades whole areas, irrespective of health, safety, children etc. I will not return to Costa to experience this again.

Finally, there was no chance of sleep until around 2.30 a.m.each night because of the booming noise coming from entertainment areas. Our concerns and complaints weren't taken seriously. Instead we were given ear-plugs - can you believe it!!! Other passengers also complained but got nowhere.

It provides general value for money, but because of the lack of thought and care vis a vis smoking and excessive noise into the early mornings , I certainly can't recommend it and will not travel with this company again.
