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.

I got married recently and if you read my previous blog youll see it was in Florida. I wanted to share some photos of the villa we stayed in. It was more of a mansion to be fair. Twelve bedrooms and 15 bathrooms it was well equipped to look after the 20 of us who stayed there.To start the holiday off we flew business class with Virgin Atlantic. I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...
