Azamara Quest June 10-17, 2012 European Cruise

Postby Rusty » Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:25 am

Just got these ...

THEME NIGHTS
Sunday 10th June Dress To Impress/ Club Wear
Monday 11th June Venetian Masquerade Ball
Tuesday 12th June White Night
Wednesday 13th June Passionate Pink
Thursday 14th June Jungle Boogie
Friday 15th June Black Tie Affair
Saturday 16th June Naughty Nighties & Lingerie

So I guess my expenses pre-trip will be going up shortly, because I know Jane won't have anything (from the last five trips to Desire) that will fit (any of these themes)... better add this last bit just in case it's read the wrong way!

If I get more interesting information I will post.

It's a shame there is no forum section for the Desire Cruises as I would probably have posted a post trip report too.
