Carnegie - Answered a Question by burdon (20 Oct 08 10:28)

I have already booked a date for the White Room and have been told by P&O to book a time when we embark but reading Cruise Answers I find that on some days it is possible to get reductions for both East and White Room some people paid only £7.50p. But as they are both popular they might fill up quickly but on the other hand when I checked the Ventura Cruise N821 I find there are still a lot of Cabins going so sounds as if it wont be a full ship. We get on the ship on the 5th. Really looking forward to our 1st Cruise and THE SUN!

We booked the WR prior to cruising, and then booked whilst on board for a second visit. However, I wouldn't take the chance, so my advice would be to pre-book. Also noticed on one night that East looked virtually empty, but when we went in they said they were fully booked?? When we finally ate there we found the food to be pretty good, but nowhere near the standard of the WR.

You must definately book the white room before your cruise, you a guaranteed a place but make sure when you get on board you go to the restaurant to book time and date.

We ate in the White Room on our cruise once, we wanted to go again but they were fully booked, I would definitely advise that you book as soon as possible and if you can afford it go at least twice, we went on a formal night in the middle of our cruise in May.

Dont be in too much of a rush to book it, there is nothing White about the room, and the food is only okay, but if you must book do it in adavance where possible. You will get mixed and confusing information on board, the staff really do not know what is going on when. Restairant bookings on the Ventura was the worst cruise experience of my life, and I have done loads of cruises.

Even when the ship was full (July 31st trip to Venice) we were able to book for the White Room on boarding day for the day of our choice. On the night itself the inside area was full but the terrace outside had a few spaces available.

The Independence of the seas has had it’s make over and has been refurbished whilst in dry docks throughout April. As you read this I would have spent my first night on board.I have been on the Independence of the seas before but this was way back in 2008 and it was a travel agent pre-inaugural sailings for two nights. I can still remember it so I’m really looking forward to being on this ship again. I like the Voyager and Freedom class of ships from Royal Caribbean. They just fe...
