This will only be a short review as I've already posted a long one last year on the Costa Allegra.
This long repositioning cruise to Italy was our third on the Allegra in 12 months, so we knew what to expect as far as the ship is concerned. Obviously we love it, or wouldn't sail three times. My ravings about it enticed a couple of our friends to join us in Mumbai for the second leg of the journey. They too had a lovely time and are now hooked on cruising!
We were a bit disappointed with our cabin as it was a bit smaller than what we've had in the past, with very little bench space. (We had chosen it ourselves making sure it was in a good position without any noisy rooms above us) After a couple of days we were offered another one close by with a porthole and slightly more room. We took it until Mumbai, when it was occupied and returned to our original one. We asked for the beds to be separated and this gave us a lot more space. I think Deck 5 seems to have larger cabins and many now have plasma TVs as well (we were on Deck 5 last year).
Small cabin when beds are together. No bench space. Smallish bathroom. Quiet location. Lots of hanging space and drawers.
