good cruise, but some issues

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

we went on western mediterranean cruise, the best part is the value, my worst complaint is the bill, they round it up, if they charge another .47 cents for all guests, it is pretty good extra profit! another issue is the packed boat, crouded buffet, noisy hall, bathroom smell, and some rude (not all) staff, ex: I was quicked out of the spa garden, staff told me is for floor guests only, she reminded me: people pay for it!!!, yet through the door I came in it did not have any signs posted, I complained about loud doors (it shook my bed when I was laying) they never fixed it!

Pros: very nice back of the house staff - waiters, housekeeping

Cons: rude front of the house staff - front desk, spa

Recommends Costa Concordia (RETIRED) 548? Yes!

Service and Staff
dinning staff always nice, front desk people sooooo rude!
Ship Quality
too many people getting in/out of the boat at the same time, restricted hours for everything, ship is showing signs of wear and tear already (only 1 year old)
Food and Dining
on afternoon tea time they served pizza, too much pizza! evening food was good, selection was nice!
Cabin / Stateroom
they did not change sheets every day, horrible smell in bathroom.
