Celebrity are RCI's premium brand so it makes sense to expect a better standard of service, otherwise they'd be shooting themselves in the foot. Independence is aimed directly at the 'family market', so school holiday periods are going to be hell if you don't want kids around you. If your looking at RCI as an option, the Radiance Class ships tend to be a lot less child friendly & are suited more to the 'traditional' cruise experience.......Wilba .

Personally I do find RCI good value for money. Have you thought of Cunard? Celebrity are almost an American version of Cunard (Cunard having an Anglo-American feel).

Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...
