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.

One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
