As far as dress is concerned I would agree with A of N. As far as the weather is concerned a Chepstow late spring might be the case, wet and warmish in the main but cold as you get to the glacier region and at sea. Nothing against Chepstow as I used to live there. Take early summer wear along with rain wear and a sweater or sweat shirt and a light anorak and you should be ok. regards ... Neil.

On Celebrity they request that the evening dress code applies to the whole ship after 6pm, apart from in the casual dining venue where there is $2pp cover charge.

Neil Down is correct - expect mild temperatures varying from sunny to light drizzle. Dress in layers - short and long sleeve shirts (sorry, male-only comment!), sweater and light rain jacket. Two formal nights on a 7-day cruise, excpet you can eat in the buffet if you prefer casual the whole time. Formal evenings are superb and they are the only "dinner jacket" evenings. Mercury has only a buffet besides the restaurant. The larger ships have an alternate restaurant.

Costa Concordia Dismantlin...

By Sam Smith

The Costa Concordia tragedy seems like so long ago now so I was surprised to hear that the dismantling and recycling of the infamous cruise liner has only just been completed in Italy, marking the official end to final phase of what is considered the largest maritime salvage job in history.I never really thought about what a massive job the whole process has been, the salvage operation took 2 years and the dismantling a further 3 years.The consortium responsible for the Costa Concordias disma...

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
