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,.
What was your cabin like as I have never been in a promenade deck cabin before, Is there much room in them etc, just thought it would be interesting, people watching etc. Tricia.
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.
