They have one or two formal nights per week and you can either go black tie or lounge suit and tie. The Mediterranea is a super ship and I am sure you will have a great time - definitely try the Club Medusa for one evening meal and if you stick to their set menu it costs a surcharge of about £20 per person but if you like superb food and service it is superb and formal attire is not needed only being smartly dressed.

Dress Code On formal evenings, women wear everything from party dresses to glittery gala gowns. Men generally opt for dark suits rather than tuxedos, though Costa has a convenient tux rental package. There are two formal nights on a seven-night cruise. Other nights in the Caribbean are casual, the ultimate in casual being the last night's Roman Bacchanal when the crew hands out bed sheets to be worn as togas. I was surprised to see that only half the passengers participated. A number of past Costa passengers went all out, bringing their toga gear from home.

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
