Italian Costa Serena Cruise Trip from Malaysia Homeport Klang (Part 1)

I’d purchased this cruise trip for whole family during Matta Fair on September 2023. I wish to bring my kids to experience travel on Cruise. I choose Costa Serena Cruise mainly due to the price is much matching with my budget. And it comes with Kids below 12yo at 50% price together with an adult, which means I pay for 3 person cost for my wife, my 2 kids and me, that’s a great deal.

Matta Fair September 2023

We bought the Cruise package from Bestour EUUS Sdn. Bhd., and thanks for their recommendation for the cruise package which match my humble budget. After done the purchase, my family and I are looking forward to the trip. This is the first family trip on Cruise. We got the 4days 4Nights Cruise trip, Port Klang > Penang > Phuket, Thailand > Port Klang.

After months of waiting, finally is our turn to go trip on board with Costa Serena. Our trip is the 3rd batch and our boarding time is 6pm onwards on 22nd Jan 2024, we have to be there 2-3hours earlier before the boarding time, as per informed by our Agent.


My family and I arrived at Port Klang Cruise Terminal around 3pm. After check in our big luggage, we proceed to the waiting room (boarding area). From the waiting area, we can see Costa Serena Cruise had arrived and passenger from the previous batch is disembark from the cruise. So, We waited around 3hours plus to our turn for boarding. Obviously the boarding arrangement is messy, and not well planned and arrange.

We got our boarding sequence “1A” and it means the first batch to do boarding. According to the PKCT personnel informed that they will announce accordingly. However, when the gate open for boarding, clearly can see people who are holding “4A” “6A” which come much later squeeze in front the gate, the situation is much like “Train to Busan” movie scene. Finally we are able to board on to Costa Serena around 6:30pm (we’re consider lucky to get boarding faster).

Anyway, We managed to board on the Costa Serena Cruise Smoothly and check in to our cabin around 7pm, thanks god. Eventually, we manage to go for our dinner onboard 7:30pm after settle down our hand luggage into the Cabin. Meanwhile our big luggage is not send to our cabin, and we found them at the lift area on Deck 3 around 10pm.

Disclaimer: I’m not KOL or influencer for the Cruise Trip, I paid for the trip and I just share my own experience at here.
