We have cruised twice with Costa and neither cruise had a 'toga' night as such...on Costa Serena last February they did have an Italian night where one was expected to wear red, white and green clothing ...we actually made the effort and did this and were two of, at the most, 5% of the passengers that actually took notice of the recommendations!!!

You've actually got togas, wow I'm impressed, most people use the bedsheets. .... Neil.

Thanks Neil.I have been really worried because I happen to mention to my sister-in-law who is coming with us about an Italian night and she has made us all togas.We were going to have to wear them somewhere'.

Hi Eight of us went on a Caribbean cruise in Jan on the Costa Fortuna and yes there was a toga night. It was on the last evening and we all had extra sheets left folded on the beds for us to use if we so wished. We did not take part as we did not want to feel foolish but i can tell you plenty did................it was a great night. Some people even came prepared with their own togas and crowns etc. So if your sister-in-law has already made them ..well you may as well make use of them and ENJOY. I would however phone Costa to make sure that the cruise you are going on does "do toga night". Hope this helps.

My Cruise Experience of the Tu...

By Richard Smith

Last week I sailed with Thomson Cruises on their new TUI Discovery 2 which has been recently acquired by Thomson and was formerly the Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas.I hadnt sailed with Thomson before and although I had generally had a very positive response from my clients about them I had been a little bit put off personally by the smaller size and age of their fleet of ships.With Thomson now taking on some of these larger (medium sized in real terms) ships with a more modern design, thi...

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Off to Rockley

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
