    it There are also six large balcony suites added since 2000 in what was the original theatre above the bridge Berlitz rates Costa Europa as only a ship but I feel even this is a little generous Food was average at best and sometimes sufficiently bad to be sent back I have never needed to do this on any other ship It improved on the two Gala nights Regular passengers claimed it had got worse in recent years and others compared it unfavourably to other Costa ships The Andromeda buffet is cramped and with few seats Lunchtime main courses are the same as served in the restaurant However good espresso is available both in bars and on room service though not in the Orion restaurant in the evening Only Celebrity of the larger lines can match and exceed Costa for coffee Service in the restaurant was pretty good but the waiters have a lot of tables to serve including the wine much of which is also expensive although the bottles we had with were all very good and included Italian wines not usually available in the UK Unfortunately another Italian passion is smoking and this is a real problem on Costa Europa Non Smoking areas in lounges are badly laid out so the whole room rapidly fills with smoke Both the Ocean and Medusa lounges also have excessively load music This is probably acceptable in the livelier Medusa which is used for dancing but the dreary artists booked for the Ocean should be turned down to levels closer to background music The Delo has no music but is a cigar bar which is permanently full of smoke Argo is also notionally a quiet room but the bands from the adjacent Ocean still intrude combining with the softer music played there to make a discordant cacophony that John Cage would have been proud of Those who know me would tell you that this is what I normally listen too but not whilst trying to have a conversation Although non smoking in the evenings the Argo is used for private functions during the day so is actually smokier that the other bars In short there was nowhere we found for a comfortable smoke free drink where one could converse without shouting This is quite probably just how most people on board like it Prices in bars also seemed high compared to other recent cruises There is no non smoking area at all in the outside area to the Andromeda buffet so eating out in the fresh air is impossible Even the ship s stairwells smell of tobacco smoke early in the morning Ship wide messages have to made in Italian German French English and Spanish in that order which takes forever On the plus side very few announcements are made to the whole ship so in practice this is not a problem at all Even at disembarkation announcements were made locally in your allotted waiting area There was none of the continuous
