We have just returned from independance and had our 15 year old this ship is a haven for teenagers we hardly saw our daughter for 2 weeks she had a fantatic time made lots of friends we booked portofino resturant when we were on ship and got a table no bother but we didnt take our daughter she wasnt keen to go and she went off to johnny rocketts with her friends It did state at resturant that under 13 not admitted and ther were no children in resturant when we went Food was fantastic too much of it well worth the money. Kids can always eat at windjammer resturant which is just outside speciality resturants. Enjoy cruise it is a fab ship .

No, under 13 not allowed, so the online booking system will not permit this. SOME ships allow under 13 in on the early times like 6 or 6:30 but you have to ask on board - it is totally up to the restaurant managers discression. It is an adult dining experience that lasts approx 2 1/2 hrs so please ensure that your child will be comfortable with this before booking.

My USA Trip Part 2 Bellingham

By Collette Apak

We each had our own huge suite decorated in traditional style complete with everything you could want during your stay i...

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...
