We came off the celebration yesterday after a week to the fjords. i noticed a constant vibration, sitting on our toilet was like sitting astride a small motorbike - we were in a deluxe cabin on deck 7. our friends were on deck 4, which they also thought was abit noisy, but that was the neighbours. the ship was groaning abit on our voyage from bergen to olden when the sea was slightly choppier. i would sail on her again for the price.

The ship was initially called the Noordam and entered service in 1984 but it does have only a limited number of double rooms most are twin bedded. Best location is midships and an outside view rather then an inside cabin and as high up as you can afford although on some ships this is not always an extra cost. The reports back from fellow cruisers is they all enjoed the experience. The ship does have a self service launderette.

We have sailed twice on this ship, both times on deck 1 inside. Cabin 888 to the Baltics this August, no problem with noise of any kind. Cabins are perfectly roomy for a couple, ample storage etc. The higher deck you are on the more likely you may feel more movement. Enjoy.

Had you asked me a month ago if it was worth paying that bit extra for Royal Caribbean I would have said a few hundred pounds possibly, a thousand or more no way. Ask me now and I would say absolutely.For families I have no doubt that Independence of the Seas should be on the top of the list for your next cruis...

We went up to Deck 11 to where the pools were and some of the Bars to meet the rest of our group. The atmosphere was really good the sun was shining the music was on it was really nice and of course, I had a drink i...

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...
