Review summary

This was a very nice and relaxing cruise. The port selected to visit were great and certainly interesting and the tour excursions totally covered each port.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was very good and a variety was offered. We did not eat in the specialty restaurant as we were enjoying our nightly table companions too much to leave them.


5 out of 5
Thought the tour excursions were very good and covered the ports adequately.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff went above in assisting us throughout the cruise. They were just great!!!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I did not realize the ship was so big; however\, surprisingly we ran into some of the same people each day just walking around. The decor of the ship was very nice - not my taste- but nice and clean and was accessible.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The size of the \"mini-suite\" was very disappointing. Had I truly realized the size\, I think I would have checked on price to upgrade to a full suite. However\, with that said\, the condition was good. The location was not good due to being just above the nightly entertainment - the Luna Lounge and the Bar Disco. We could hear music way into the morning hours. The staff did their best in toning down the sound.

Pros: The helpfulness of the staff.

Cons: Our stateroom was just above the entertrainment and several nights we had to call re the noise. Also the number of children on board was a negative - 500.

Recommends Costa Serena? Yes!
