Costa Allegra was constructed during an era when affordable balconies were not yet incorporated into blueprints. Therefore, if you are looking for a cruise experience with a private veranda, book early, as there are only 10 mini-suites available with this feature.
If you are looking to splurge (or are traveling with a larger group), there are three suites available just under the bridge and facing forward of the ship. However, these suites do not have private balconies. The accommodation includes a living room plus two separate bedrooms, and a shared large bathroom complete with a separated bath/Jacuzzi and a shower. Both suites and mini-suites also have butler service.
Standard inside and outside cabins are located on Decks 4, 5 and 6. Outside cabins feature double portholes and an inside area of 146 to 156 square ft. -- considered pretty cozy these days. There are also single cabins available. Staterooms are decorated with cheerful designer fabrics and teak-like furnishings, and have a yacht-like atmosphere. Eight inside cabins accommodate the needs of passengers with disabilities.
