A cruise in the western Mediteranian fits perfectly into our timing for a trip scheduled for Barcelona end of November. Unfortunately, I've read several posts that were rather negative about the Costa Line. Are the criticism's fair? Someone complained about the disorganization of the embarcation, the smoking, the fact that there were few English speaking persons. Is there general agreement that this isn't a good choice for a first time cruiser? The price and timing are perfect for us. But are the criticisms valid or just sent in by people who are very hard to please? Smoking does bother me, but the other complaints seem like whining. What is the truth?
