Dont let them put you off the cabins were great, the food was great tea & coffee in the lido was ok but the ship was fantastic along with the very good service from a friendly crew.

Take a travel kettle - we did, saves a lot of bother especially if you want to drink tea/coffee in your cabin any time day or night. Rough seas are not condusive to carrying cups of liquid from deck to cabin!

Yes there was tea making facilities when I went on Thomsons Destiny. Had tiny cabin shared with friend and we had kettle and cups etc the usual. Lovely in morning nice cup of tea or coffee. What does "this level of cruising" mean written by Richard Okill, so now cruising has "classes" how sad? cruising is fun its for everyone thats why there are many different types of accomodation/prices and yes when "slumming it in windowless cabin" you get lovely tea facilities and Richard should hang head in shame..

As you will see above, no tea and coffeemaking services avaiable but you can get room service, approx £1.50 plus a small tip, buffet a long way to go for your early tea, we found it a very good service, most ships do not do tea and coffee in staterooms now due to health and safet.

No, sadly there is barely enough room for a kettle in the cabin!! It is freely available in the Lido thoug.

By Jodie Baldwin

The last time I stepped aboard Independance of the Seas was in 2008 when she was brand new and I was invited to Southampton for a guided tour on board.

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
