  1. Boarding at Barbados is an absolute snap! No delays.. Your cabin is always ready for you - we usually get on board by about 10:30-11:00 Some years ago when the active Carnival ship was either Victory or Valor my local booking agent revealed that 40 cabins was the Barbados allotment and that presumably spread out over several decks - thus my cabin on lowly Deck 2 being always ready!

  4. Victoria is 1996, mind you.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costa_Victoria
  5. After laying up in Civitavecchia (Rome) for two months, #CostaVictoria has sailed to another Italian port #Piombino this week. Recent rumours mention that #CostaCruises may have already sold this vessel to cut cost in the recent financial situation, and the ship may be acquired by other companies to convert to floating accommodation. However the Mayor of Piombino, Francesco Ferrari Sindaco, has just written on social media that the 24-year-old cruise ship will be demolished and scrapped. Until now Costa Cruises has not yet commented about the news, and some future sailings of Costa Victoria is still available to be booked on their website.
  6. Here in Barbados we seem to routinely have 10 or so cruise ships hanging around - usually 5 or 6 anchored in the Bay (or in port taking supplies?) and another 5 or so, just offshore somewhere, biding time. AIDAluna has been here SO LONG now, she is a permanent fixture. - at least 2 months if not more!
