Dress codes are the conversation this week as we discuss what the cruise lines suggest vs. what they allow. We also talk about how cruise lines might lessen the confusion regarding what to wear in the main dining room, and discuss the various opinions on the subject. Our cruise news focuses on two stories: the Costa Allegra's fire and subsequent engine failure and the robbery of twenty-two cruise passengers in Puerto Vallarta.
This week's episode features a full itinerary for a cruise port day in Naples with directions to and information about Pompeii, the Naples Archaeology Museum, Sansavero Chapel, Galleria Umberto, pizza and more! We also talk cruise news with stories about Carnival's ship deployments in Europe, a Costa Concordia update and the new Princess ship preview.
Love is in the air as we discuss how to make a cruise more romantic, why cruising may be more romantic than a land vacation and our favorite romantic ports. Cruise news includes continued coverage of the Costa Concordia as well as new ship deployments for Carnival and an interesting survey from Royal Caribbean.
We review our cruise aboard the Carnival Elation this week with lots of details about the food (including the Chef's Table) and entertainment as well as ship layout and service. Our news comes from Carnival, Holland America, Princess and Costa with continued coverage of the Concordia and the recent norovirus outbreaks.
