We did this last year and we found Costa to be fairly casual compared to other lines. A blazer and trousers was sufficient for 'formal' evenings. i wore black silky evening trousers and different tops each evening and didn't feel out of place at all. Ashore during the day I wore cotton skirts or cropped loose trousers and perhaps a strappy top with loose shirt over. Remember you need to cover up well if you are going to a mosque or other religious site i.e. head, shoulders and down to wrists and feet! Men best in long trousers. It was very hot in some places so a sun hat with large brim was a handy accessory! We loved this cruise itinerary so hope you enjoy it too.

We did this cruise over Christmas, and found most passengers dressed caually, even 'formal' night was low key- less than 10% wore dinner jackets. Comments made by morris of fareham are valid,we would agree with what he said. Weather very good now, sun is not too hot during the day.

Well my wife and i have just come back from a costa cruise round dubai not the best of ships regarding quality food,buffet meals on the decks was ok but in the dining room which on cruise ships is the highlight of the cruise was poor, on board entertainment was poor and the staff could be better off booking a holiday on the island escape from palma to learn hospitality this is our 15th cruise and costa europa never again ron and val horn .
