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.

The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan
