During the day casual clothing is typical, although shorts and swimwear are not permitted in the main restaurants. Nights ‘at sea’ are classified as evening chic for dress purposes and nights in port are classified as smart casual. Evening Chic replaces formal nights and means that you can be glamorous and sophisticated in your own way. The self-service restaurants are casual attire.
About a third of people on the cruise travel alone. We will match people in twin-share cabins when available, saving you the single supplement. You won’t be left alone, the Travelrite International tour manager will be there to guide you. There will be group activities almost every day.
The cruises are fully escorted and will be great fun holidays with plenty of activities. Each evening you will dine with the group on our reserved tables. You will meet an interesting group of people and have a fabulous time!
