We was on deck 8 cabin 8279,which is 3 floors up from the shopping area,you can watch the shows from your cabin,but you cant hear much as the glass is real thick,which is good if you want to go to bed early,which i dought,as there is soooooooooooo much to do,we was on early about 11.30,so go have a brilliant time,make sure you watch the graham seymour breakfast shows on your tv in the morning,he is sooo funny,he's on in the theatre at night,entertainment manager or somethink,he had us in stiches,.

We never had that much room round the bed,the tv was right at end of bed about a foot away,if that but there is a settee by window so you can people watch,but you have to kneel on settee,bathrooms nice size,no decent shampoo,no conditioner,you will have fun trust me,try the big egg shape chairs on top deck,i so wanted to bring them home,the free ice cream machine i had loads every day,chocolate,or strawberry,so yummy,dont forget find graham hes so funny,specially the mr and mrs show he does,i'm so jealous of you,let me know how you get on.and i took 350 photos of just about every think on the ship....

We were in a promanade cabin deck 8 in june this year cabin 8597 and although higher you still have a good view but we tended to go to it as it had a better atmosphere being amongst the action. Promande rooms are just great for people watching and wish that other ships had this as you dont feel as claustrphobic as you do in an inside cabin. have a wonderful time.

We were on the ship by 11.15am, had lunch in the windjammer cafe and our room was ready at 1pm. We had a balcony room on deck 8 and we really liked that deck, you can also watch the paradec etc from a viewing area besice the internet cafe on deck 8. I am sure you will love The Independence we certainly did.

By Tom Harding

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

But imagine if you know a few tricks to make that cabin space bigger or at least feel like it!Read on to find out which cruise essentials you should be taking with you, that won’t take up much...

Your River Cruise Questions An...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

 Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising. I did my first river cruise about 6 years ago, the first of many, and I have never looked back. It ticks all the boxes for me, small ships, friendly staff and passengers, fabulous scenery all day every day, and being docked right in the centre of which ever city you are visiting so no long transfers, not to mention fabulous food!I just find that I enjoy these cruises so much more...
