There will be two nights formal, and the code is long or cocktail dresses for ladies, and dinner jackets,(formal ) for men, although a lot of men just wear dark suits. It is a chance to dress up though. Other nights, a dress or pretty skirt and top,are suitable, and shirt and tie for the men. Some people do not make an effort on casual nights, and just wear jeans or shorts, but they are in the minority. Costa Victoria is great , we have been on her 3 times, and are back on her in October.# Hope you enjoy your cruise.

Baby number 3 is on it’s way!!Baby is due around mid January (although we’re sure he or she will be late and will come on Rafe’s birthday on 20th January).Being 35 means I’m classed as ‘higher risk’ due to my age (I’m not THAT old, am I??) bu...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive.

I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
