Hi again Denise, we hope have a lovely time in August.

We had 3 formal nights - as you thought, the sea days. The rest all being semi formal, which for the guys ranged from suit no tie, to jeans & tops, and for the women, slacks or day dresses.

As for tours; we normally do our own thing, but did take 3 official tours this time, and were actually very impressed with them.
I know it's pot luck, but all the tour guides that we had were local & had very good knowledge of what we were seeing & why. Also with all the tours being prices in USD it made them great value for the Brits on board.

Is the trip going to the Med? If so, and there are any particular ports of call you'd like help with, please feel free to ask, or drop us a private message & we'll give you any thought s & comments that we've built up.

All the best,

Alan & Katrina
