NEVER AGAIN WITH COSTA EUROPA
STATEROOM'S CARPET WAS SOAKING WET FOR THE FIRST FOUR DAYS WHEN FINALLY IT WAS DRIED WE WERE LEFT WITH THE MOLDY ODOR FOR DAYS.A/C THERMOSTAT WAS NOT WORKING SO COOLING WAS CONTINIUS !!! WE HAD 62 DEGR.WE HAD TO SLEEP WITH 2 BLANKETS AND OUR HEAD COVERED.THE TECHNICAL STAFF DID NOT HAVE SPARES TO CHANGE THERMOSTAT.COFFEE WAS UNDRINKABLE FOR THE FIRST
THREE DAYS SO THAT YOU HAD TO BUY THE COFFEE COUPONS FOR COFFEE FROM THE BARS AND NATURALLY NO DECAF AVAILABLE.
NO MATTER TO WHOM YOU COMPLAIN (MANAGEMENT)THERE WAS ALWAYS A GOOD LISTENER BUT NO ACTION TAKEN.
THE CHERRY ON TOP OF EVERYTHING CAME ON DISEMBARKATION DAY :
THEY MADE US LEAVE THE CABIN 04.30 IN THE MORNING TO SLEEP ON THE SUN CHAIRS,BY THE POOL,AND TO BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE SHIP AT 10.00...... THAT IS CRUISING ITALIAN STYLE???

Pros: RESTAURANT STAFF

Cons: NON-EXISTING MAINTAINANCE-MANAGEMENT'S INDIFFERENCE

Recommends Costa Europa (RETIRED)? No.

Ship Quality
SHIP IS OLD AND IT SHOWS
Cabin / Stateroom
Entertainment
FOR 28DAY CRUISE THERE WERE ONE 45 MINUTE SHOW(VERY GOOD) AND A 30 MINUTE SHOW PLUS FEW THIRD RATE (CIRCUS TYPE) ONE PERSON SHOWS.
