Cruise number 54
Costa Cruises – Costa Smeralda
20th January to 27th January 2020
Our Premier Balcony cabin was well laid out, very well decorated and structured. The bathroom being the largest for this class I have yet to find. Our wonderful cabin attendant Gebe from Bangladesh could not do enough for us as our gifts from Costa each day where waiting on our return each afternoon, the cabin kept spotless and checked throughout the day. The corridors and passenger spaces where always clean, neat tidy and with the modern décor always looking like a Italian interior shop window.
However, the on going embarking and disembarking of passengers at virtually every port turns a relaxing cruise into a constant bags in corridor, manic receptions and no real structure with 5 of the 7 days having rescue drills and people constantly moving around in life vests this format of booking becomes more like a bus service at sea . I am all for people not having to fly to much to join the ship but restrict from 5 ports of joining to 2 or worse on a 10 day route 3 embarkations
