What are you people on? You pay for the cheapest room, it's the cheapest servcie that you get. You'll be lucky to see a bathrobe let alone have one hanging on the door of the bathroom. Take it for what it is, a decent way to have a holiday at a very good price, if you want first class, save up and pay way over the odds for silly things like bathrobes.

You are wrong there.I have travelled in the cheapest cabins on Holland America and Royal Caribbean and Princess and had bathrobes.I was asking about a specific ship. Obviously you get your kicks out of being particiularly obnoxious.Oh I forgot Saga also supplies bathrobes.As we like do 3 or 4 cruises a year of course we try to get the best value for money.

So you do 3 or 4 cruises a year, is that a veiled attempt at snobbery. I have travelled on a few different cruise lines including Royal Caribbean and have had both cheap inside rooms and upper range balcony rooms and have never had a bathrobe. I did see people on the Voyager of The Seas in September out of Barcelona walking around on the decks with their robes on, but they were selling them in the shop for £30, so when I go on the Ventura in December for MY 3rd cruise of the year I'll check them out too.

I imagine you are a bit of a bully.You are picking on a 73 yr old retired nurse who spent 47 yrs being kind to 'you people'Not having to take a bathrobe simply means I can take an extra pair of shoes.As a retired person I can waste time doing this.Whats your excuse?

I'm only pulling your leg a little. I've never had a bathrobe on any of the cruises I've been on but as I said there were people strutting around with them on the decks of the Voyager as if they owned the place. If you don't get one in your cabin, try a friendly approach to your cabin steward in a quiet moment when no one is around and ask if he has spare ones, I'm sure they will, but don't forget a little extra with their tip at the end. Hope we're friends now.

Hello. I just have a question. I am taking my grandmother on the costa Serena. She is in the same age group as you. We have booked a inside cabin to. I just wonder if you liked your cruise? and how was the food? I am a little worried that she will find it to noise. I have read so many rewieus that i dont now what to belive. This is the first cruise for my grandmother and I want us to have a good time. EVeryone say it is so expensive onboard when it come to wines and so. The drinking package they sell is not for us. Did you eat in one of the special restaurant? I do hope you had a wonderful cruise .. Alexandra,Oslo,Norway.

The Costa Serena was wonderful.It is very glitzy.The food was great.The cabins were spacious.The staff can't do enough for you.It is not easy to find your way around as you can't get the whole length of the ship on one of the decks,you have to go up,along and then down.We were glad we were with my brother and his wife because their were not many English speaking people. The Italians join in everything.They are dancing on the dance floors.The shows were good.Most were visual because of all the languages.Like Cirque Soleil and magic shows etc.Wonderful show put on by the crew.We bought the x1 drinks package before we went.You have to buy that 2 weeks before you go.They don't advertise it.We contacted our travel agent for it.It gave us unlimited drinks in the dining rooms and grill bars and we took it to the shows from the dining room.Take your water to your cabin from the tea and coffee station which is open all the time. It is a beautiful ship.It is an Italian ship and Brits were complaining that the food was Italian and the language was Italian.Well we did not find that a problem.I'm sure you will have a wonderful cruise.I did.If you want to know anymore I will be happy to tell you. Colleen.
