We have been on the Emilio 3 times - it is a lovely cruise ship. As has been stated daywear is casual - however do bear in mind that this is a Muslim country overall and you should dress appropriately when you are visiting tombs/temples etc (also by wearing long sleved loose fitting clothing you will be less likely to suffer sunburn/heat stroke). Also in March the evenings are still quite cool so take a pashmina/cardigan/light jacket - smart casual is usual but dress up if you wish to - many do .

No, but we are also booked to go in March 2008 and would be interested to know if you get any replie.

I haven't been on that particular ship but having been twice we found that the dress code was very casual during the day and smart casual in the evenings. One evening was devoted to dressing in the local costume and turned into a very good evening, our purchases being made ashore and by someone visiting the ship. Can't guarantee that on your ship though.....But go with the knowledge that you will want to go back because there is so much to see and find out about, you just can't take it all in in one trip.....Good Luck.....Ida.

We've just come back and the Domina Prestige was wonderful - spotlessly clean, friendly, helpful crew and (mostly) good food. People did tend to dress up a little more in the evening, especially the ladies, but there's absolutely no pressure. As for the overall holiday experience (expertly organised by Libra) it's much more than just a cruise. In fact if you take advantage of all the included and optional trips, you're on shore a lot of the time. I can't do better than quote a fellow passenger, "I'd give everything 10 out of 10, except the camel ride which was 15". One word of warning, almost all our group got 'Egyptian Quickstep' to some degree so DON'T FORGET THE IMMODIUM.

I have been on the Domina Prestige in 2006 and am going back again in May because I was so impressed. The boat interior, especially the reception area is beautiful, the staff are amazing, the rooms are comfortable and cleaned twice daily with two sets of clean towells every day (look out for the towell sculptures!) It definately deserves a 5 star ratin.

Travelling the Globe!

By Stacey Williams

I am so excited for tomorrow as I have been invited to London for the annual Globe Travel Awards. I have never been to an awards ceremony before so I was over the moon to receive an invite from the amazing MSC Cruises. My plan is to pack in the morning just before travelling as we have been so busy at Cruise HQ I have had no time to organize anything. My train is booked for 9am from Dumfries to Carlisle and then onto Euston. I will (hopefully) arrive at around 1pm. I then need to navigat...

Lago di Garda

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

 Back in october 2016, 5 colleagues and myself escorted a group from the MSC Splendida to Lake Garda and Venice.This was the first time I had been to Lake Garda or known locally as Lago di Garda. I was really looking forward to seeing this region of Italy and the famous lake that bring millions of visitors each year to this area of northern Italy.The lake is the largest in Italy and also has numerous small islands, from the main towns you can take the lake ferry which does a round trip s...
