You have probably heard by now of the propeller problem when the ship hit a rock. A travel agent should give you an update. The class of ship is also suseptable to engine bearing problems, we have been on the Mill. without a hitch, been on the Summit with a problem that caused some ports to be missed out & just been on the Infinity, without a problem at all. The ship itself is magnificent. The oldst of the Millennium class. The attention to detail is fantastic. Iced facecloths passed to you - by tongs! - as you board back from a day trip (as long as its a hot country!) waiters taking hold of your tray & finding you a table in the buffet bar. A very varied entertainment in the theatres, not just 'Broadway shows', but things like a concert pianist, a violinist, this sort of thing, more upmarket than other ships. This is a highly rated ship by US travel magazines, 90,000 odd tonnes & is a great way to cruise. We would have no hesitation on going back on her.

Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

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...
