Go for it, and both ways if you can afford it.There is no way you will be bored on this amazing liner. On my fourth round trip 26 June. You will love the dancing, shows, lectures and Planetarium. The Canyon Ranch Spa is very good.You will not regret the experience. Richar.

Once you've been on a cruise you will not want a land holiday again. I first cruised 20 years ago and my family and friends said 'no way' but having persuaded them to try it over the years they are now dedicated cruisers.

Never actually experienced Transatlantic but had 5 days at sea before we reached the Panama Canal and it was fabulous - it was the bit I was dreading but it turned out to be the highlight. Enjoy if you go - it is a fabulous ship with plenty to occupy you - but make sure you choose a cabin facing south whichever way you travel across the atlantic (catch any sun) especially if you have a balcony.

I guess you know him best and not sure if you've cruised before. We're (just)fifty and went last year on the westbound passage(an extra hour each day) and adored every minute. We went to the spa most days, the gym, planetarium, played scrabble, attended lectures, made new friends, read (super library) ate and drank very, very well and just got to spend lots and lots of time together which is what we wanted. There's nothing like watching the ocean roll past day after day - totally mesmeric!If you go - and he'd be mad not to - get an obstructed view balcony - don't think it's worth paying a premium on Atlantic crossing and remember port out, starboard home for maximum sun.

It is always a problem if you are a regular cruiser, especially if you like a particular Cruise line as eventually you find you have been there, done that and got the T-shirt so to speak, sometimes several times over.Thats why it always exciting when a cruise line ventures to new destinations or offers new exciting experiences for you to try.That is exactly what Azamara Club Cruises are doing for 2020.They have just unveiled their exciting 2020 itineraries, which in their words will beFeaturi...

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...
