Sail Date: Mar 2010

This was our 2nd time cruising with Costa and we were really looking forward to it as we had a brilliant time on the Serena 2 years ago(our 1st cruise!).

It was nice to see more Brits on board and a good mix of Italians, Germans, French and various other Europeans.

Cabin: We got our first ever balcony so we were well made up and we got our request of portside. Cabin was fresh and clean as expected from a month old ship and everything in working order. No complaints at all.

Cabin B6

Great view, more hangers needed, good balcony

Port Reviews


We docked in Dubai on Saturday lunch time and did not disembark the ship until Monday morning, so we had 1 1/2 days to explore Dubai. Again we organised our own tours as this was more cost effective and more fun. We did the Big Bus tour, which sounded expensive @ £40 per person, but was excellent value for money as it included 24hr travel on the bus, a walking tour of Dubai and a 1 hour boat cruise (just make sure you get your timings right as there are only a few of these per day). As with Abu Dhabi, shopping in the Malls is extremely expensive.
