I have been on a Costa Cruise & you are quite right it is mainly all casual clothes, you can dress for dinner if you wish.

Hi, we went on the Costa Victoria 30th July for one week and found most of the guests wore lovely evening outfits for the gala dinner and smart dressy/sparkly tops other evenings, men wore suits/jacket and trousers, with tie or dicy bows or just open neck smart shirts in the main seated restaurants. You have a choice of dining. In the daytime it was normal summer/beachwear in the self service buffet area. The Costa cruises have a lot of Italian, Spanish, French, German guests and they do dress up. Have lots of fun we loved it.

We have cruised with Costa on many occasions, and there are always to formal nights when it is suggested ladies wear long or cocktail dresses, and that men wear formal wear or dark suits. My husband always wears his dinner suit, dress shirt and bow tie for these occasions, and I always wear long. On other nights even if it is casual, I tend to wear a posh dress and my husband wears shirt and tie. Sadly some people will wear shorts, even though this is not evening dress code on board the ships. To me it is a good excuse to get dressed up. During the day I tend to wear shorts, or a bech dress or kaftan over swim wear. Hope you enjoy your cruise, Costa is very Italian, when we were on the Victoria earlier this year, there were only 36 english speaking passengers, and only 12 were english. Hwever there is always an english host, and the crew will speak english as well. JUst go and enjoy the Italian way of life, and you will have a fantastic time. SU.

Hi, We did this same cruise this year and everything was fantastic. We had three formal nights where we really dressed up {tuxedo's etc.} but a normal smart jacket and trousers would have been acceptable, the rest of the dining was smart casual{shirt & trousers}.You can even re new your wedding vows on this cruise for free.Oh if you are wondering what currency to take with you American dollars are best even though the ship reccomends euros.Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

We returned from this cruise on the 3 July. There were three formal evenings when majority wore dinner suits/evening dress. The rest of the time was smart casual with only a few that didn't bother. It was very warm and no need for jackets/cardigans and the air conditioning was not as cold as on many other ships.

Is Cruising Getting Too Hi-Tec?

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...

This is AZAmazing!

By Blair Campbell

Blair Campbell's blog

Cruise lines are often difficult to differentiate between each other and often you become spoilt for choice. Let me tell you why I have this soft spot for Azamara Club Cruises. I feel that as a company they tick all the correct boxes for me as a bit of a culture vulture. They have an amazing spread of itineraries despite only having TWO ships (That are identical sisters) The Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey. I will talk you through 4 Reason why this cruise brand stands at the top of my to-do...
