Are you cruising this year? If so then Independence is doing MyTime dining - you are able to reserve a table for 2 at a specific time each evening. Worked perfectly when we were on board recently - table for 2 at 8.15 each night. Get your T/A to sign you up for it.

As with any ship you ask at the time of booking and with a bit of luck you get one but there is no guarantee,RCI seem to have less 2 seater tables than P&O but they do have some,we have meet some great people on the larger tables over the years so do not worry if you get allocated a bigger table?

We have done 11 RCCL cruises. If you aim to get on board around 11am (even though they say 2pm) there is usually a desk available after you check-in at which you can request a table for two. These tend to be kept for couples who make a particular request for same. You may have to swop your sitting but if you don't ask - you don't get!

So more people are cruising and it is attracting a younger audience.I was on board the Celebrity Eclipse in May for a 2 night cruise and there was definitely a lot of under 40s on that including Hen parties, which tends to be the ...

Over the years you may have read my blogs about my friend John who has been wrongly imprisoned in India. His ordeal started back in 2013 when he, along with 35 other crew members were arrested and imprisoned for fire arms offences whilst serving as anti piracy guards off the India coast.After 6 months in Jail the case against them was dropped when it was proven the men did have all the correct paper work and no offences had been committed.
