The mystery cruise I mean....the mom at the daycare reported back to me today proudly, that they were going on the Costa cruise! "Costa what?" I replied. she said "just Costa". so I sent her home with more homework to find out which Costa ship she is sailing in August! Sheesh!
You're getting there, keep asking, inquiring minds want to know! :-) I hope it's one of the newer Costa ships, as Costa is big in Europe and some of their ships never leave the area. I would not want to be on one of their older ships!
Ok - here is why some people don't know which ship they are on. Take my parents for example, they just enjoy cruising. However, they hate the process of deciding on when, where, which ship, etc... So what they do is wait on me to decide on a cruise, then they book it also. They do know we are going to Hawaii next month on Carnival, and that we are flying Delta to Vancouver and back from Honolulu. However, they are not concerned with the name of the hotel we are staying in, or the name of the ship or which ports we visit - they trust my judgement on that and depend upon me to tell them when and where (oh I just love telling people where to go). For them, it is less about the name of the ship and more about the enjoyment of just being on a cruise.
