I was on the Independence in June and I cancelled a Rome trip as I was doubtful whether I would be able for all the walking. As soon as I got on the ship I went to the excursions desk and booked a place on the trip Easy Rome which can only be booked once you are on the ship. This tour was a half day and the coach took you everywhere you would want to see, the only time we were out of the coach was for about 45 mins at the Vatican and it was only a short walk from the coach into St Peters Square. This trip worked well for me and is perfect for somone with walking difficulties.

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...
