Never heard of prebooking seats or how you would do this - we have just turned up early especially for the ice show and one night at the karaoke.

I too am unaware of any seat booking system on Independence, they, in fact, point out there is no "keeping seats" allowed. If you are early (main) dining you will be finished about 7.30-7.45 for the main show at 9.00pm. Theatre opens about 8.15-8.30 which should give you time to get there and get a seat. If you are late dining then the main show is usually before you eat, again get there early and you shouldn't have difficulty getting a seat. Ice rink opens 30 minutes before the show, similar advice applies.

There was never a problem getting seats as long as you turn up at least 15 minutes before a performance. The Theatre had ample capacity.

I agree with the others but I have a view that if you don't ask you won't get so go to guest services and see what might be done. There are spaces for wheelchairs on the theatre plan on the ship so that might the answer, borrow a wheelchair for evening use. In my vocabularly there is no such word is it can't be done, worth a try or think of something else along the lines of my suggestion. If you do book an excursion ask if the reserve seats at the front of the bus for you, if they don't ask why not.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
