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.

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
