Amazing ship. Like being at sea in your own town. But can be a little bit crowded at times. Especially at breakfast but if you time it right. It's a very pleasant experience.  The staff are fantastic and the ship is spotlessly clean. We had a inside cabin this time as we had family in a balcony room so just borrowed theirs the room was more than big enough and bed was amazingly comfortable. love independence of the seas was going to try anthem this year but sadly cancelled. So now trying p & o Iona in 2021. Our last cruise just took us arround European towns and cities sailing into Rotterdam in the Netherlands was fantastic and you cruise down the river for over a hour right in to the centre of the city. I can recommend visiting the zoo which cost about ,€12 by taxi from the terminal.  Zoo staff were more than happy to call us a taxi to return aswell.   With people crowed down the river banks waving at you. Cherbourg is a very nice little town and a visit to the maritime museum is a must.  Le harve is ok for a sea front walk.  Hope independence of the seas comes back to the UK soon. 

So much to do on the ship. Great food, grease the musical is a real high light. Wave rider although not for me spent hours watching people falling over. Arcade, ice skating, escape room and crazy golf means your never be bored. 

Be warned with the escape room when you book it doesn't tell you you will be in there with other groups. Which spoilt it abit for me. Would like to of done it as a family. 

As for the next cruise well Iona in 2021 to Norway which I'm so looking forward to.
