We have been on the Star the last 2 years during October half term. In 2006 the weather was beautiful - nice and hot most days. Last year however, it was alot cooler, rather windy in the afternoons and not very sunny apart from one day in Nice! It wasn't cold but you really needed a long sleeved top in the late afternoon and it wasn't sitting-out-on-deck weather after about 3.30pm. Hope this year is better as we are also going again on the 25th!!

We were on the Island Star last year at the same time, (English school holidays). Certainly a bit colder than we anticipated. Layer dressing is the answer. Chilly late afternoon on deck, cardigans or wraps would be a good idea. On our excursion to Florence we were frozen - the locals were wearing coats and jackets. We ended up purchasing scarves and wraps in Florence.

Following on from my last blog about P&O’s changes to their alcohol policy there were also other changes to their dress code policy. This policy states that as from the 1 January 2018 they will no longer allow any kind of novelty, fancy dress or personalised clothing to be worn by passengers.So what does this mean to your cruise…well I’m guessing that most of you won’t be overly affected by this change but of course there will be some passengers who are not too hap...
