Costa Serena image
Coming back from a cruise on the Costa Serena, I am happy to say that I get to report some good, as well as some bad. This was a very special trip due to the fact that we sailed on the Costa Serena for a total of seven days, and followed it up with another cruise back-to-back.

So why did we choose to sail on the Costa Serena? For starters, we chose this due to the fact that the itinerary was one which really interested us. We were looking to really try and experience the Caribbean in a new way, and were hopeful the Costa would provide that.

positives of cruise Positives of Cruise
The ship itself was very well put together, and our cabin was decorated with nice flair. If you have ever sailed on a Carnival cruise ship before, the cabin and d├ęcor can be compared to that in terms of the quality.

From an entertainment perspective, the music was great, especially the group Paraguay, they are a must-see. The production shows were very strong as well, with good singers as well as dancers making up the cast on the ship.

The staff on the ship was certainly short in terms of the number of crew members to each passenger. The wait staff in the dining rooms though did a superb job of keeping up with the demand of us hungry cruisers.

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
On the downside, the food was very tasty, but there was an absence of some of the more well-known cruise dishes, including lobster, as well as fine steaks.

The majority of those onboard the Costa Serena were Italian, Spanish, or French. This was definitely a more younger crowd on the ship than I have seen in past cruises.

Overall, we were very impressed with Costa and the Serena ship for the duration of the cruise. If you are looking for something different for your next cruise, this certainly could be the way to go.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Young Families.
