No Smoking in Costa’s Dining Rooms
Costa’s announcement that it will altogether abolish smoking in its main dining rooms -- across the fleet -- beginning December may surprise some passengers of this Europe-based line. But even Europeans, who tend to be more tolerable of smoking and smokers, see numbers dwindling. Costa’s dining rooms have for years maintained distinct smoking and non-smoking districts but, says spokesman Darren Oster, “the smoking section had shrunk to wings off the side.”

The lack of demand for a spot to light up, he notes, is just a sign that passengers, whether hailing from the Continent or the U.S. just don’t want to be exposed to smoke when they’re eating. The 8-ship fleet has also lassoed smokers in show lounges but no policies exist elsewhere onboard.
