So far we have only every had an inside room - this year we are going to the Panama Canal and have decided on a balcony - we loved the inside cabin - lovely for a pre dinner snooze nice and dark. We kept the TV on the webcam (little window on the world) so we could see when we were coming into port we were have been on the Sea Princess and the Sun Princess there is a little secret deck right at the front on Baja deck and we used to go there when we were coming into port. We hardly spent any time in the cabin. My advice is go for it you are still cruising!

As this is transatlantic in winter why not book a high grade inside and hope that the upgrade fairy is good to yo.

Try spending 14 days in your bedroom cupboard at home and see if you like inside rooms...!!! Personally I don't think any one could go from a balcony to an inside. Can't you split the difference and at least have a window.

We love our inside staterooms.We have had balcony and windows, and for the short time you are in your cabin its not worth the extra.If you like to go back to your cabin and want to stay there for a few hours, then perhaps a balcony would be best, also you wont be able to sit on the balcony in December going Translantic.

I totally agree with "aldrich". Even if you don't set foot on your balcony (but I can't believe you won't), the sense of space and the extra light a balcony gives you is worth the money.

Why is it all about the kids?

By Leanne Mudd

Royal Caribbean announced last month the exciting new features for Independence of the Seas after her refit in early 2018, but I can’t help feeling it’s all about the kids! And what are we going to loose on board to make room for these new features as they are not building an extension to accommodate it all.I sailed on this ship when she first launched back in 2007 and loved it back then. When i went back in 2016, it felt like she hadn’t changed, which in some ways was good ...

The UKs favourite family ship ...

By Rosie Taylor

Rosie Taylor's blog

The Independence of the seas first sailed over 10 years ago now and has spent most of the summer months sailing out of Southampton. The ship is purpose built to deal with all sorts of weather and is very popular with the Brits.It doesnt matter who you ask about the Independence… they always have great feedback and find it hard to look at other ships as an alternative.Just recently, however a few have said the carpets are a bit worn in the cabins, could do with a lick of paint, the smoke...

Will I be below the water line?

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

“Will I be below the water line?” is a question that I am frequently asked when selling both river and oceans cruises. For an oceans cruise this is a simple question to answer, as whilst the lower deck cabins are numbered 1 or 2 and sound close to the water, there are always at least a couple of crew decks below, meaning that even on a low passenger deck you are still very clear of the water.River boats are smaller though and typically only have 3 or 4 decks to them, with deck ...
