I will be cruising on the Costa Victoria from Venice in October. I am a college student in the states, and I'm going with my mom. I'm just wondering if anyone has been on a cruise through the mediterranean or this particular one at this time of year. Were there many college-age people? I'm quite sure it will be primarily older people, but please tell me there was SOME blood my age! Also, are drinks expensive on ships like this, and is it permissible to bring aboard my own liquor? ha ha i'm not trying to make this a party cruise, but i KNOW i'll want to drink, especially if i meet others my age, and i'd like to save some cash!
