7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 24, 2010
Ship: Costa Concordia (RETIRED) 548
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

We were very disappointed with all of the smoking. Smoking was allowed in the state rooms - we have been on over 10 cruises and never experienced so much smoking. There were usually lines in the buffet and the early seating was too late at 7:00 pm.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was very good in the restaurant and not much selection in the buffet. No heart healthy food.
