I echo Mr Buckley - I think you would be severely disappointed if you went with P&O following Indie. Just go and read the Ventura reviews to give yourself a taste of what it is like....why not try the slightly smaller Navigator or Voyager that are cruising in the Med?

If it ain't Broke don't fix it? I would stay with RCI in our opinion they are better than P&O but if you must change Oceana gets some good reviews,Ventura is still getting mixed reviews,You could try RCI From Harwich and go to the Baltic's or North cape they have plenty of ships sailing from Europe if you fancy flying Best of Luck?

Royal Caribbean ALL THE WAY , P and O are not in the same league when it comes to facilities. What does the Ventura have which the Independence does not have - a scalextric track (which was a joke to be blunt). Were as Royal Caribbean has a gr8 kids and teens club, Rock climbing wall, H20 Zone (water park) Flow Rider, Royal Promenade the list is endless.

Royal Caribbean is def the best cruiseline in our view. Why not try on of the smaller ships, saves a lot of walking! Also why not the Jewel out of Harwich for the Scandinavia and Russia trip, we had a great time on that.

Hi - Thank you all for the replies. You've all said exactly how l feel. It possibly would be a hard match to follow. I think we'll stick to RCI for the time being at least we know what to expect!! Thanks again .

We started our cruising with RCI last year. We ahd two cruises that were enjoyable. Like you we thought of trying P and O. We did and went on Artemis to then Fjords. The trip (scenary) was superb, but the ship and things, such as room service, choice and qquality of food did not compare with RCI. We are migrating back aand have booked with RCI next year.

I agree with all the other reviews, although I would also say Princess would be a good choice. I have been on P & O once(never again) and it is no where near as good. Have you noticed all the people who love P & O have never tried anything else!!

Are Room Keys a Thing Of The Past?

By Emily Watts

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...

Wonderful Shanghai pt3

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Picking up my Shanghai Blog from last year – you can read the last one hereAfter a great night in Suzhou, we were due to check out of the hotel to move on back to Shanghai. We went for breakfast in the hotel restaurant we found this to be much more traditional and didnt have the selection we were afforded at the hotel in Shanghai. There were pastries and there was what looked like an omelette station but much of the selection was very Asian based – we fueled up ready for our d...
