Ragged ship, overpriced excursions, fine dinners

Costa Victoria is more confined than the ships of similar price we know (this was our smallest cabin ever) and would need major refurbishment. Our bathroom was a little smelly at times, and the shower tray was ...

Another top cruise - Maiden South Africa Cruise
