We travelled from Cairns, Australia to join Deliziosa in Dubai for the 7 night cruise. We were able to board the ship around PM but did not get access to our cabin until around 8 PM. Some guests did get into their cabins earlier.

The cabin was a good size for comfort and there was plenty of storage space.

We did not have any problems with the cabin other than occasionally the shower drainage was not adequate.

The cabin stewardess did an excellent job and everything was always ready when we needed it.

We found all staff to be very polite and helpful even though we only speak English.

The meals in the dining room were of a very good standard and the service was excellent. We had the company of two couples from England at our table and enjoyed their company very much. The buffet meals were also good but we thought there could have been more choices on offer.

The X1 wine package was a great deal and we would use this again.

We found the activities on board the ship including the theatre entertainment in the evenings to be satisfactory and some of the shows were extremely good.

We used the gymnasium often and it is very well equipped.

The decor of the ship is truly beautiful and of the highest standard.

The amenities of the ship are also very attractive nad it is easy to get around. We would be very happy to do another Costa cruise.

Cabin review:

Convenient location. Shower recess could be better designed to contain water when showering. Window space good. No other suggestions as we were very happy with the cabin layout and fixtyres.
