  3. Costa Victoria
If you are an Asian looking for a cruise experience, you might want to think twice about cruising with Costa Victoria. Most international cruise lines have a wide variety of food that includes Asian cuisine, but Costa Victoria is an Italian ship line that offers more Italian food than others. Be prepared to choose from a predominately western-european menu that includes no Asian food. You can look for some culinary comfort when you order noodles at night, but even so, the taste is rather bland. Aside from an Italian eatery experience that I couldn’t get used to, the activities are nonetheless the highlight of my trip. The performances and facilities were enjoyable when you consider the amount of money you pay for the trip. It is very reasonable. There were a lot of dancing and performances that showcased the Italian culture- something that is different from the other cruises, and if you want to get a glimpse of Italy, this is the cruise to be on board. Furthermore, there’s no pressure for a nice dress code because their dining halls and concert theaters do not require a jazzy prim get-up. You can come in comfortable berms and shirt, which I really appreciate, especially when on a holidays.
