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.

I did it!!!

By Lisa West

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...

NCL All Inclusive Drinks&Tips ...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

 Recently NCL announced that their Ultimate Drinks Package & prepaid gratuities were now mandatory in all of their sailings. At first glance this would seem to be a good idea. After all, I can’t tell you how many enquiries I get on a daily basis, asking if a drinks package is included. Rightly so, as your bar bill is usually the most expensive item on your cruise bill!So there has been a definite trend towards passengers preferring a total cruise fare with an all inclusive d...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
