I was on the the Independence pre-inaugral, we didn't take our children but we did take a close look at the facilities on board for children. We have taken over 25 cruises with RCI and this ship has by far the best facilities for children, including toddlers, that we have ever seen. The H2O zone is fantastic for kids of all ages and looks very safe for toddlers. Facilities for kids started from 6 months - 17 years. All the pools are heated with FRESH water! You will love the ship she is incredible and the crew onboard are excellent.

There is a separate Baby Splash Zone for babies in nappies - they are not allowed to swim in the main pool of course because of hygine issues. Independence is the first ship with heated pools.

Mansion before our Wedding.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I got married recently and if you read my previous blog youll see it was in Florida. I wanted to share some photos of the villa we stayed in. It was more of a mansion to be fair. Twelve bedrooms and 15 bathrooms it was well equipped to look after the 20 of us who stayed there.To start the holiday off we flew business class with Virgin Atlantic. I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...
