Hello Folks

This is my first post and I fear I may have strayed into unchartered waters here; I thought this was a forum for people who went on cruise liners.

If there is anybody out there who can advise us, it would be appreciated. We do not sail and normally holiday in France via ferry and car. We thought we might take a cruise next year as it is a biggy birthday for me and I am leaving my job after 30 years in the NHS.

Is there anybody out there who has cruised with the Royal Carribean? We are planning a holiday with them in September next year, Italian Mediteranean on their new ship Independence of the Sea, which has its maiden voyage in May of next year. It is said to be a very lively boat with lots to do, as well as getting off and visiting some interesting places in France, Italy, Gib, Spain and I think Portugal.

I would be interested to hear of peoples experiences with this company.

Thank you, and apologies if I have strayed into the wrong channel.

Cherry Helene

Hello Cherry Helene,

As you have already guessed, this bulletin board is for people who sail, or are planning to sail, their own boat rather than cruise on "ocean liners". But you are welcome to browse the site. Who knows, it may interest you in sailing on your own!

Hi Harriet

Thanks for your response. Mmmmmmm, unlikely, it's a monied hobby, isn't it?!

We actually live on the coast and go on boating trips during the summer, acting as tourists! We normally travel around the Fal river - beautiful. I love the water, although I cannot swim!!!!!!!!!

I live in hopes that somebody might respond to me that have actually cruised on a cruising ship.

Cherry Helene,

Honest mistake. I did a quick search on Google under Cruise ship forums and came up with these.

cruise ship forum - Google Search

Hope that helps. Have fun on your cruise.

Granted this is a different kind of cruising forum, but I can say (from firsthand experience) that taking a cruise w/ Royal Carib was terrific. Took the Nordic Empress to Bermuda a few years ago, and had a grand time. Everything was first-rate: accommodation, food, service, etc.

Have a great time.
