Deck 4 in the middle of the ship is a good location. We had requested the same cabin (no. 4272) which we had on Costa DELIZIOSA in 2009, and luckily we got it. The view is obstructed by the life-boat but we do not care. Excellent bed, usual bathroom (shower), not particularly noisy. Very good chamber-maid (a young lady from China).

Outside Cabin with restricted views, lifeboat! Full length picture window provided great view, we were between lifeboats so no major problem. On Deck 4 midships, port side, and very handy to lifts and most public areas. No major problems with noise. Bed large and comfortable, settee, lots of storage & hanging space. Bathroom roomy but no facecloths provided by Costa. Towels changed daily, bedding every 4 days. Scrupulously clean. Read entire member review.
