All Inclusive cruises

 

Dress code on board your cruise ship:

We all want to look our best ( not all time) so when we choose a cruise holiday the dress code is really not that complicated, its a holiday but feels like your still staying in a hotel. I love to dress up in the evening especially but its not always necessary when your going for your evening meal its part of my holiday.

So here are some does & dont’s whilst on your cruise holiday

 

 

Day time:

Some people dress up all the time even if they are just sitting around the pool drinking a pina-colada, reading there book, or just watching the world go by. Whilst you are relaxing by the pool in your  swim suits remember its better than the birthday suit save this for when your in the cabin. But then again be careful as you can get caught out. Naked sunbathing is not the done thing on board  most cruise lines are american and there rules do not permit nude or topless sunbathing.

Smart casual is all ways a good choice daytime or night time dependent on the days activities. So remember we come in all shapes and sizes and no one is the same.

 

Evening wear:

Cruising is for relaxing so you may want to just laze around in the pyjamas,dressing gown, ( even again naked but in the privacy of your cabin.) I am sure your fellow traveler on the cruise would not be expecting to see you in your night wear when going to a formal night on board the cruise, but this  has been know to happen that’s going to turn a few heads. There could be a themed celebratory pajamas party option but double check, so  Always be careful when dressing for dinner as there is always that one time when things can go wrong and your in that embarrassing situation and we have all had one.

So the moral of the story is always be prepared for the unexpected.

I will be sailing with Norwegian cruise lines on the NCL Dawn, this is a mid sized ship initially launched in 2002 but in 2016 went through an extensive refurbishment, she is known for having some of the largest accommodation at sea, along with over a dozen dining options capitalizing on Norwegians freestyle policy. New features include Los Lobos cantinas, an upscale Mexican restaurant exclusive to this ship, I will definitely be stopping off at The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar for a wine tasting, and have only heard fabulous reviews about the Teppenyaki restaurant.

Dawn_TheCellars

NCL cruise lines are a 4 star cruise line that specializes in Freestyle cruising, there are no set meal times, plenty of speciality restaurants and now they are fully all inclusive including a Premium all inclusive drinks package and gratuities, so plenty opportunity to try a few cocktails and no need to worry about who your going to tip. Their ships stand out mainly for their colourful nature, inside the ship is an abundance of colour, from the main atrium to the cabins and walkways, to the murals painted on the bow of the ship, making them stand out from all other lines.

Boarding in San Juan sailing 7 night itinerary around the Caribbean Islands stopping at Barbados for our first port of call and one I am most excited about. Barbados epitomises all what the Caribbean has to offer, colourful buildings in Bridgetown itself, but it is the laid back atmosphere and golden sandy beaches that mostly attracts visitors.

DestinationGalleries.Caribbean.OceanFloat

Martinique is our next port, part of the Lesser Antilles Islands and is described as an overseas region of France, its shores are bathed in the West by the Caribbean Sea and in the East by the Atlantic Ocean, there is a distinctive blend of French and West Indian influences in both food and architecture. Fields of bananas and pineapples can be seen whilst driving around the island

St Kitts is mainly known for its mountainous rainforest and vast beaches of white, gray, and black sands from its volcanic structure. Here we have booked an off road 4×4 tour through the island which is going to be an experience never to forget

St Johns in Antiqua has been described to me as paradise and one of the most beautiful islands in the Southern Caribbean, known as a honeymoon island, the beaches are plentiful. Nelsons dockyard is a cultural heritage site and marina, the roads to here offer some of the best on the island

St Thomas in US Virgin Island is one of the most popular cruise destinations, with its crystal clear waters and sandy beaches, and is most suited for beach, boat trips and snorkelling. You can actually walk on the sea bed wearing a helmet, called Helmet diving or even a scooter, it is something I have never seen before and is very intriguing

So I have a very busy cruise planned, if you too are interested in getting away from this dark British weather to some winter sunshine, email me today. Keep an eye out in December to hear all about how I got on

Italian owned Costa Cruise Line have today announced their partnership with Italian Football team Juventus.

For all of their sailings within Asia, Costa Cruise Line will be offering a Juventus Experience on board for all passengers.

Guests on board will be able to view Juventus content at anytime from the TV in their cabin. They can also learn about Juventus’ history, as there will be a fantastically decorated “Juventus Museum” corner, showcasing related Memorabilia. Of course you can pick up a souvenir, just visit the Juventus Shop on board!

They will have a fantastic mini club on board where children can play with the Juventus Official mascot, Jay. In my opinion, the highlight of the new partnership will be a Juventus trainging program, for children aged 5 to 14 years old. Aspiring footballers are encouraged to sign up regardless of the technical level, as the training will be managed and trained by coaches from Juventus and the program is copied from the Juventus Soccer school “Juventus Academy”.

The cruise line say the new partnership with the Italian Football Giant, will accentuate Costa Cruises Italian DNA and enrich the on board offerings to passengers.

Costa Neoromantica, Costa Victoria and Costa Neoclassica are the three ships kicking off the 2018 Asia Sailings.

Due to the new partnership, cabins will be getting full very quickly, so don’t miss out on your chance to be apart of this new program!

Richard Sofer, the Managing Director of Thomson Cruises said he is excited for the new “Electric Sunsets” itinerary and to take passengers back in time to the Iconic 80’s era. He isn’t the only one said to be excited, DJ Sara Cox also said “DJ’ing anywhere is amazing and on board a huge ship will be epic. The energy will be electric and the ports of call are party scenes in themselves so it promises to be a fantastic few days for everyone on board.”
