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.

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
