We were on Galaxy in the Eastern Med last bonfire night and joked with the staff that the 'brits'would be building bonfires on the decks and setting off flares. They didnt seem to know anything about Guy Fawkes and certainly there was nothing visible on the ship to acknowledge the event . Halloween could be different because the Americans DO celebrate that, I know- I have seen the scary films!! Best wishes Carol Guy.

Most ships I have been on at Halloween do recognise it, you can't use the word celebrate here, and do a lot for that evening. Only British ships would understand about Guy Fawkes Night, it doesn't figure in any other country's history and it is never, to my knowledge, acknowledged let alone celebrated with fireworks and a bonfire would be totally out of the question. ....

Americans really know how to celebrate halloween on board. However as your cruise is out ofSouthampton there may be less enthusiasm from the Brits.

Ithink you'll find that the Inde on the 26th october is going to the Canaries and not the Med! As to celebration of Halloween, there is so much going on anyway I'd doubt if it will be an issue - enjoy. This will be the Indes. last European cruise before it departs for the USA for the first time on November 6th. I should have been on board but a knee operation has put paid to that!

Hi, we sailed on Royal carribean's Explorer of the seas last halloween. They had a dress up halloween parade in the royal promenade for adults and children with a prize for the winner and face painting and sweets for kids. Americans seem to love halloween so I am sure there will be something similar on Independence, so bring an outfit!!

I would say definitely the Independence will be celebrating Halloween. I was on the first cruise in May, and it was one long party every night. I spoke to Ken Rush, the Cruise Director, to ask if all the parades etc were only because of it being such a new ship, & he said, 'No, iy will be like this all the time', so take your masks etc, & have a great time.

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
