We are regular Costa cruisers in our mid 50's. The itinerary appealed to us. We started in Savona and disembarked in Hamburg.
8/5/16(Sunday) Stansted to Milan. Transfer to Savona and embark.
9/5/16: (Monday) Marseille. 08h00-13h00.
The usual layout for Costa. The cabins are very spacious with lots of storage space and seating. There was a reasonable hairdryer in the drawer and the balcony was small but adequate.
