Thanks for the feedback. From what I understand, Costa Caribbean
cruises are marketed mainly to Americans. The passengers on the
cruises in the Med, which is what we're considering, are about 75%
Italians, and the rest mostly other Europeans.

most annoyed with it. The ship was beautiful and there was very little
smoking. However, the food was abominable and the Cruise Director
humiliated all the passengers who were i the Talent Show.
Would never ever cruise with them again. rosaly

We've cruised a lot on U.S.-marketed lines, and are now considering a
Costa cruise out of Venice.
Costa permits smoking in some public areas and in cabins. How much of
a problem is it, actually, on Costa ships in the Med? Are we likely
to get a stinky cabin?
We speak only a little Italian. Is that going to be a problem?
Thanks for any advice.
I have a friend who went on a Mediterranean cruise on a Costa ship.
She's traveled a lot and said there was a lot of smoking all over the
ship and that, in general, the people were not very nice. And she's
not someone who is exactly a shy, shrinking violet, easily offended
sort of person.
