Hi thanks so much for your answer,you've really put my mind at rest, as I said tho' not much we could have done about it anyway. We've been on The Emerald and The Calypso so now very much looking forward to Christmas and New Year, are you in a suite again and are you on the Christmas cruise?

Hi, We did the first cruise in suite 9003 it was a retirement present to each other. It was really nice, loads of room. There is a seating area, a wardrobe area and a full bathroom, plus balcony. You get better treatment as there is steward for just the suites. We have been on her lots of times since, the last time in Feb. She is still looking her age, we have hear that she is having a weeks refit before going to the Caribbean. I hope so as we are booked on it. If not, then it wont matter we will still enjoy it.

The season of the mini cruise.

By Warwick Van Reenen

Warwick Van Reenen's blog

My first cruise was a mini cruise on the new Independence of the Seas in 2009. Well, she was new then! It was during a May bank holiday weekend and a 4 night to Cork and back.It was bank holiday weekend and the ship was filled to capacity. The volume of luggage being manhandled on board the vast family-friendly superliner at Southampton might have suggested we were all embarking on a world circumnavigation rather than a short sailing and this is another bonus of a cruise out of Southampton is...
