    Worst trannys i have ever seen !!!
    also the worst cruise comp i have ever been on. in the baggage hall savana my daughter was rammed by a italian with his trolly. it was so hard she was thrown in the air, 2 days later she miscarried her baby, costas response, nothing not a word zilch. also we was both full of bumps and bruises from all the pushing and shoving when on board. i feel so strong that i will not even now go to italy let alone cruise with italians, and costa dont give a dam so long as you spend spend and spend again.
    the person who said about the many languges is dead right, it drove us mad. because by the time it got to english the speaker was out of breath and exausted, and if it was a joke it had lost its humer by then, i know i cant spell lol.
    take so very well intended advice and dont cruise with them :D

    I thought it focussed too much on the dancers. I would have preferred to have seen more of what took place on the bridge etc.Was fascinated to see the ship being controlled by what looked like a joystick!!
    We saw the secrets of "The Best Capitanor" on Sunday, and his secret is out !!!!!!!!!!! He had a thumping great tug to guide him.

    I agree you watch this series and sooo wanna be back on a sunny cruise! However, if I ever board cruise ship and see that entertainments manager (with the black glasses and thinking himself to be crazy) then I'll run a mile. The whole "Grandad in a womans frock pole dancing' was the most horrid of his 'entertainment' ideas.

    I was looking forward to the announcements in 5 languages!![/QUOTE]

    I noticed that they only did the announcements in English!!!but I can assure you that when we cruised on Serena they did every announcement in five languages, getting faster and quieter as they went.... and as English was the last one it was inaudible!!!!

    it was nice to see inside the Serena again. looking foward to the rest of the series.
    too much time was spent with the dancers and that pain of a choreographer.............some of the dancers too fat, well I wish I was only that fat!
    the ship is kept spotless and the staff all look immaculate in their uniforms.

    I enjoyed the programme. It was easy viewing. I was interested to see how the staff live. Looked quite cramped to me. No wonder they work long hours. I thought it was a bit staged but you cannot blame them for that. Looked quite different to the reviews I have read though. I was looking forward to the announcements in 5 languages!!
