X1 package includes bottled water, cans of fizzy juice ie coke, lemonade etc, bottled beer, red and white wine. You have to be in either the resturant or buffet when they are serving meals. You will find one of the buffet resturants open till 4.30pm some days. You do not pay any extra for service charge. We paid just over £80 for an 11 night cruise. We bought just one X1 package as you get 2 drinks per card. We found it great value. Hope this helps.

We were on the costa serena in feb 08, it was available then. ask your travel agent to arrange it. it has to be arrange 2 weeks prior to sailing. the only thing that i can think of is that it is a far east cruise and they dont do it but somehow i dont think so. sorry that i cannot be of much help.

We had 2 days in Copenhagen prior to the cruise and stayed at the Admiral Hotel which is in Nyhavn. The hotel is situated on the river and is a great location close to the Amalienborg Palace. We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
