Costa Victoria Cruise Review
Since there were two formal nights, we brought a tuxedo and 2 formal dresses.There was only one formal night during our cruise and most men wore dark suits, some not even jackets. Informal night appeared to be casual.There were fewer staff to be found than on a Celebrity cruise. We had no lights in the bathroom, which we called the desk about right away. They were fixed after 4 phone calls, and 2 days and one night without lights! We were sent champagne, though.There was no supervision near the glass elevators. It was hard to get an elevator--children without parents rode it for entertainment.A large sign said that no one under 16 allowed in whirlpools. Children were crowded into the whirlpools.Another sign said that no one under 16 was allowed in the Pompeii Spa. Again, a lot of screaming children.The gym was open from 9am to 8pm, so you could not use if if you were on a day tour, or if you wanted an early workout.Celebrity cruises are geared to a gym crowd.The pasta was great.
