Hi Lisa - I cant actually remember if they do crisps, I know the bars give you free nuts when you buy a drink. There is an ice cream machine on the pool deck and it is (or was) free vend, so happy days around there. Your kids will love Indy, the older ones will aim for the flow rider during the day and you will have to drag them off it !! They may also like the rock climbing? There are lots of games for them and RCCI also have childrens clubs. I seem to remember they were all togged up like pirates one day. It's my favourite ship and i'm off in June again. Dennis J.

I have not been on this large ship but have been twice on the thompson ships, i reccommend you take some walkie talkies as its easier to know where the children are saves a little on the legs i also took a big bag of mars etc just incase they wanted nibbles. you could go and get ice cream in the resturant. i did not see any crisps for sale .have a great time we did.

Hi do you pay to use the nursery facility or just for the babysitting(someone comes to your cabin I assume?) 18:00 - 21:00 what a fab idea. Thanks for letting us know about that one! If you pay for this service can you please let me know how much it is. Thanks Lisa.

Hi, there was no charge to use the nursery facility, you pay form the baby sitting service at night. This cost $5 per hour, but dont forget the nursery does open for a couple of hours during the evening so adults could have their meal and the kids could eat at the nurseryat the same time!!

I did answer this question but wonder if I clicked off too soon for it to have been included for the Young family from Poole.

How Far Is Too Far?

By Alison Ranaldi

In March last year, I booked my holiday for November this year. At the time, booking 20 months in advance seemed quite strange and hard to get excited about. On the plus side, the cost of my cruise increased by over 700 per person over the following months and it has given us lots of time to plan what we are doing and to budget the holiday by booking trips, hotels and flights at different times rather than in one go. Also, it is nice to have something to look forward to. I have had a few holi...

What has been happening over the last couple of weeks in the Cruise Industry ?There has been a lot of talk about the new Cruise ship Bliss belonging to Norwegian cruise line. I never thought there would be a day that a ship would have a race track on board . I am led to believe the track itself will be the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, with four speed settings accommodating all drivers with the speed reaching up to 30 miles per hour including a special turbo boost available on each l...

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
