There are a wide variety of age groups on any cruise ship but costa ships are geared towards the Italian market hence how good is your Italian? It is difficult to make conversation with fellow diners if you only speak English. Several work colleagues have used this line - all say the ships are good, the food is mostly pasta and the main drawback is only a minority of the staff/ passengers speak fluent English. If this isn't a problem have a great cruise.

My husband and I went on our fisrt cruise this year for our honeymoon. We went round the Carribean. Would definately cruise again, its great waking up somewhere different every couple of days! The entertainment was good but repeated the same the next week. A cruise is what you make it, we chilled out, we didn't do the Butlins style stuff! Bingo, salsa dancing etc, but one thing about it is the food! You can eat constantly. It's worth trying anyway!!!! Tell him to give it a go, the cruise you're looking at looks lovely!

I just returned from the costa victoria cruise. it was great but not a young crowd. there were mostly couples around 50 years old, or couples with teenage children. if you are wanting to do a cruise to be with young people, i would recommend you dont do it. if you want some quality 'couple' time, its a fun thing to do.

My husband and I went on Costa Atlantica last October and what a beautiful ship, the Italians know how to be flamboyant and sometimes outrageous, the decor was fantastic, I imagine all Costa ships will be similar. We were in a minority speaking English as most were Italian but they are great entertaining people. Ages were mixed, I would go for it and in Asia you wll be spoilt. Anit.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

If Carlsberg did Cruises!

Happy Monday to everyone! You’ve all heard the saying from Carslberg, “If Carslberg Did………………” Well what if Carlsberg did cruises? Or if you could invent or design your ultimate cruise what would it be like?If I was given control or designing a cruise, my first priority would have to be a rugby pitch! Most cruises if not all have some form of sports court, such as Basketball, football, but what if they had a rugby pitch! Now rugby is...

Disney Magic

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family . Yet again it didn’t disappoint.There was 11 of us in total and we stayed in the Dream Castle just outside the gates and it was great !! We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...
