Life aboard Costa Serena
Costa Serena is based in Shanghai and offers cruises in the East China Sea to the island city of Cheju (South Korea), and the scenic cities of Fukuoka and Kagoshima in Japan. Of course Shanghai city is worthy of sight-seeing. Be sure to obtain multiple-entry visas to the Peoples Republic of China.

Entering service in 2007, at 114,147 GT and carrying 3,000 passengers, the central theme of the ship is Greek and Roman mythology. The focal point is the Pantheon Atrium, nine decks high with glass elevators, boutiques for shopping, a grand staircase, live classical music performances and the Atrium bar. Costa Pacifica has the fleet’s best fitness and relaxation features. Dance floors abound. Most passengers are Italian. This more of a floating resort ship than a traditional cruise vessel. The ship is best appreciated by those who like constant and noisy entertainment. Guests include many Italians, others from all over Europe. Ages range from the elderly to young families.

Accommodation
The 20 price grades come in three sizes: 2- and 4- bed interior cabins, 2- and 4- bed outside view cabins, and suites with balcony. There are two single cabins. The largest accommodation is provided in the eight Grand Suites, with queen-sized bed, and bathroom with tub and two washbasins. Staterooms are of average sizes. Of the 1,500 cabins, 55 have direct access to the Samsara Spa, and 505 have a private balcony. Of the suites, 58 have a private balcony, and 12 have direct access to the Samsara Spa.

Samsara staterooms offer extras including flat-screen TV, Samsara bath products, a wide range of health sessions, use of the thalassotherapy pool, and a table in the health-conscious Samsara Restaurant. In a standard balcony stateroom what can you expect? Twin beds convert to a queen-size bed, and large leather sofa converts to a third bed. Closets are spacious, there is a locked mini-bar, personal safe, multifunction phone and interactive TV, and spacious shower-only bathroom. Note that balconies can be wafted with cigarette smoke. Twelve cabins are wheelchair-accessible.

Food and Dining
There are two main dining rooms - Ceres and Vesta - with two seatings. The menu specialises in pasta (50 types). With Costa cuisine, quantity rules over quality. The alternative dining option (extra-charge, by reservation) is the 80-seat Club Bacco, with seating under a large glass dome beside the major pools. The two Samsara restaurants feature food prepared with reduced salt, fat and calories.

For casual eating, The Promotea Buffet Restaurant is a self-serve for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with afternoon pizzas and beverages. Other lunch options include the Ipanema Grill and the Lido Calpyso, both offering steam table grill items. Specialty coffees are available are various bars (at extra cost). The Caffeteria is notable for its coffee, cakes and chocolates.

Entertainment
The ship is operated more as a floating resort than a traditional cruise vessel. The Giove Theatre, impressively spanning three decks, has a revolving stage, hydraulic orchestra pit, and superb sound. Live bands and musicians abound and dancing is the most popular pastime. The giant poolside movie screen requires an admission fee and earphones to cater for the multiple languages. A popular event is the interactive passenger game nightly in the Grand Bar.

The ship has four pools (two under sliding glass roofs, for adults), four whirlpools, and a waterslide extending over two decks. Amenities include an outdoor jogging track, a sports court, a Grand Prix race car driving simulator, the 23,000ft² Samsara Spa, a gymnasium and health centre. The fitness facility is state of the art and there are daily classes for yoga, spinning and Pilates, each for a nominal fee. Squok Club with its multilingual staff caters for four age groups ranging from 3 to 17 years. A 24-hour arcade is located on Deck 5, next to the casino. The Internet cafe is located on Deck 4 and is staffed just a few hours daily.
