This one has a video of passengers in a blackout, and you hear (as I have been saying) announcements in Russian, (Spiceba) and Portuguese(Abrigado), Korean - and who knows what else.

The point is that these are in addition to the Italian, French, German, Spanish and English Costa always uses. How many languages were they using on this cruise?

No wonder there was bedlam - this is ship designd to be used by people who do not share a common language.
Funny you say that but on Costa Atlantica every announcement was made in 6 or 7 different languages. We were joking at the muster that if they do that during a real emergency we all be dead before they finish the announcements.

And here we are two years later....
