We are going on the Costa Victoria on April 5, 2004 leaving from Venice. We have been on 4 other cruises in the states, but never one in Europe. We live here (military) so we are use to the Euopean way, but would like some imformation from people who have sailed the Victoria out of Venice,like kids clubs, drink cards, entertainment (could you understand) and anything else that would help us. We are traveling with two other families. We will have kids ages 12-7 with us.
I am also going on the Costa Victoria on April 5, with my daughter, who is 9 years old, but she doesn't speak English, although she understands a little. I can't help you because I've never been on a Costa ship but I think that in that date you will find a lot of kids, mainly Italian, because of Easter Holidays.
The family we are going with has a 9 year old girl also. Our kids go to an International school and are have made friends with children from many different countries, I'm sure the girls will find a way to communicate. Thanks for replying to the message, it's good to hear from someone else who is going on the cruise.
