We get back April 28th

anniegancanny   Oct 23, 2016 - 4:16 pm

My husband only wears smart shirt and trousers for formal nights. He says he's on holiday so why should he have to wear something he's not comfortable in. You are allowed in the main dining room x

baz4449   Oct 22, 2016 - 4:24 pm

Unfortunately yes. You could chance it but more than likely you will not be allowed in the main dining room. Some blogs on last few Indy cruises said that the non dressy uppers were sent up to the Windjammer buffet.Also you may feel out of place.

cubandy   Oct 22, 2016 - 12:16 pm

You will need a suit for the formal night

kayanandhaylie   Oct 22, 2016 - 11:14 am

Do I have to wear a suit to dinner on formal nights? I plan on eating in the regular dining room those day but not wanting to dress up . Weight limits for airline make packing a suit impractical.

kayanandhaylie   Oct 21, 2016 - 2:57 pm

We get to Fort Lauderdale on November 14th

stevecoombes   Oct 21, 2016 - 2:52 pm

You lucky people. BA is 23kg and a Kit Kat

trishag53   Oct 18, 2016 - 11:39 am

If you are flying back with icelandic air, its 2 cases each up 23 kilos , the downside is no food lol.

baz4449   Oct 18, 2016 - 8:27 am

You'll be ok unless you are like my wife, it's 14 nights = 14 dresses plus 2 spare just in case.

Juliemitchell8   Oct 18, 2016 - 8:13 am

Thanks Baz that's very helpful I'm having a nightmare haha ๐Ÿ˜‚

baz4449   Oct 18, 2016 - 8:07 am

Just watch your weight if you are flying. Although you can take any weight on ship you are restricted by the airlines. From Southampton up to day three at this time of year it will be chilly outside as per UK weather. After this it should be warm as long as no hurricane aftermath. Day time is usually shorts,t shirt,flip flop or trainers. Follow the dress code at night and you will be ok.

Juliemitchell8   Oct 18, 2016 - 7:52 am

12 days to go .. 1st time cruisers ๐Ÿšข packing our cases today and don't have a clue what to pack.. ๐Ÿ™ˆ think I'll just pack a mixture of casual and dressing up for night time.. any advice feel free to comment thanks x ๐Ÿ˜Š

andy264   Oct 18, 2016 - 2:15 am

Are you sure paulbradley I called RC and asked and they said as soon as you login it's locked to that device but I guess they would say that.

karenfleming   Oct 17, 2016 - 2:43 pm

Can't believe it's nearly here xx

johnboy66   Oct 17, 2016 - 2:29 pm

trishag53   Oct 16, 2016 - 6:50 pm

We went to Haiti a couple of years ago after the earthquake, because the ship was carrying aid. ( powdered milk, bottled water etc)

andy264   Oct 16, 2016 - 4:12 pm

I see somebody put a picture up from there cruise a week after the hurricane so I presume we will still be going.

kaykeithharris   Oct 16, 2016 - 3:27 pm

Any one now if we still go in to Haiti. After the hurricane ....,,,,๐Ÿšข๐Ÿšข๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

baz4449   Oct 16, 2016 - 10:21 am

Anyone staying at Heathrow the night before . We will be getting warmed up in the Three Magpies on Bath Road. Just a shame it's not included in the drinks package.

baz4449   Oct 16, 2016 - 10:13 am

Done this trip many times and with many operators. At this time of year you expect the worst until you get past the Azores, then it should be OK. But we have all inc. I do the care

baz4449   Oct 16, 2016 - 10:10 am

Yes as it's the only time I have a bath

anniegancanny   Sep 28, 2016 - 5:02 pm

If someone hadn't posted about getting his tickets etc by email then I wouldn't have known to go on the RC website and print everything off.
We're staying at the Luxor Hotel in Vegas for 4 nights and had no idea about resort fee - thanks fir this info. I'll google it x

Magsie   Sep 28, 2016 - 2:23 pm

The fees vary state to state and hotel to hotel . X

Magsie   Sep 28, 2016 - 1:21 pm

The Resort fees vary and some don't charge at all. Check your hotel online and it should tell you if they do.

Magsie   Sep 28, 2016 - 10:43 am

You only need an Esta with your passport. Go to and it will onlycost you $14 each. You will need your passport number and if you are staying in the USA post cruise you need that address and Zip code. X

DwKDMrFdlRo6JBhGG11Pk0XQP   Sep 28, 2016 - 10:38 am

What this resort fee thought hotel was already booked and paid for

anniegancanny   Sep 28, 2016 - 5:12 am

Thank you so much. We've been given no information like this by Cruise1st. Yet when we went to the Far East hey Thos Cook, we were told exactly what we needed.
Thanks again x

astra07   Sep 28, 2016 - 3:53 am

You can do this online.

Magsie   Apr 12, 2016 - 10:12 am

At least the itinerary is the right way ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

karenfleming   Apr 12, 2016 - 1:33 am

OMG Let's hope the upcoming cruise banner is a typo, or we are all going the wrong bloody way!!

jacqueline1955   Apr 08, 2016 - 5:22 am

This will be our fourth transatlantic crossing. Second on Independence. It is a great cruise and the sea crossing is as relaxing or busy as you wish. The Caribbean is wonderful. I am sure you will enjoy it all.

karenfleming   Apr 06, 2016 - 6:48 pm

No but we are off to Florida in 34 days xx

ian03   Apr 05, 2016 - 10:01 am

6 months 25 days and 1hr. Does that sound less than 208 days!!๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

kaykeithharris   Mar 17, 2016 - 11:29 am

Magsie   Mar 13, 2016 - 2:35 pm

Hi Karen, thanks for replying, I think the scariest bit is knowing we will be at sea for the first 8 or 9 days, knowing we're miles from land!! I would probably have felt better if we had have done a shorter one first. We booked this cruise exactly a year ago, it seemed ages away but now it's looming up! People say once you've done one you love them, hope they're right! xx

karenfleming   Feb 28, 2016 - 7:04 am

Hi Trisha 4/5 star hotel on the water I first started in 2000 and have now been on approx 15 maybe 16 we love them you want any info just ask I am more than happy to help xx

Trish49   Feb 28, 2016 - 6:09 am

Hi Karen, you been on a cruise before? This will be my first time and I'm dreading it!!! My partner was the one who wants to go!!

karenfleming   Feb 23, 2016 - 4:14 am

Magsie   Feb 03, 2016 - 4:07 am

Wish it was us. Have a great holiday.

Magsie   Feb 03, 2016 - 4:06 am

You will need long stay travel insurance. Money supermarket should help get you good deals.

karenfleming   Feb 02, 2016 - 5:57 pm

karenfleming   Feb 02, 2016 - 5:54 pm

ian03   Jan 17, 2016 - 4:34 pm

I have often thought that karenfleming, seen that several times over the last few months. Think people just like putting cruises in their profiles.Me, I just put the cruises in that I am lucky enough to be going on. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿšข

karenfleming   Jan 17, 2016 - 5:47 am

Why do some people have so many up and coming cruises when the dates clash

camshy   Jan 09, 2016 - 7:49 pm

karenfleming   Jan 08, 2016 - 2:36 pm

karenfleming   Dec 28, 2015 - 5:06 pm

Nice 1

ian03   Dec 27, 2015 - 5:31 am

Change of plan, we have booked Norwegian air, direct flight back to Gatwick, from Fort lauderdale, on the dreamliner ยฃ230 each bargain!!!!!!

ian03   Dec 01, 2015 - 12:15 pm

Well looking forward to Anthem. Has cost us a lot more than what we normally pay, as my wife keeps reminding me, but going to be so worth it.

ian03   Dec 01, 2015 - 11:49 am

just keep looking that's what we are doing!!!

peteandmaggs   Dec 01, 2015 - 11:29 am

Been on the Anthem twice, loved it.

peteandmaggs   Dec 01, 2015 - 11:27 am

Not many flights on sale yet

peteandmaggs   Dec 01, 2015 - 11:26 am

Thank you I will have a look at that.

ian03   Dec 01, 2015 - 10:19 am

We normally fly back into Manchester, but this time flying back to Gatwick, as we are driving down, and meeting our American friends there. We are flying Iceland air, via Reykjavik. We have used them before, flying back into Manchester. Good price's and good planes.

claireb73   Nov 25, 2015 - 3:39 pm

We have 4 days in Orlando at the end and we were told we would be notified approx Jan/Feb time as to what airline etc

ian03   Nov 25, 2015 - 4:41 am

karenfleming, now you are just rubbing it in lol. That's one long 60th birthday bash. Fair play to you.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

karenfleming   Nov 24, 2015 - 2:51 pm

We are lucky we will be staying till mid march

peteandmaggs   Nov 24, 2015 - 10:21 am

Is anyone flying back to Manchester UK from Fort Lauderdale, and if so which route and airline please Think it works out 14th November 2016

ian03   Nov 18, 2015 - 1:36 pm

Karenfleming, with my 2 previous transatlantic cruises, I have stayed in florida for a week afterwards. But next March I am having 4 days in Conneticutt, with our American friends before our 12 night Caribbean cruise on anthem. So unfortunately i will not have the holidays left, or the money, to have a week in florida after a 15 night cruise in November. But I can recommend it. ๐Ÿ‘

karenfleming   Nov 13, 2015 - 5:04 pm

Quick question do you stay in Florida or do you fly back

ian03   Nov 07, 2015 - 12:18 pm

Just so u know, fellow cruisers ian03 is same as ian3 have changed my fone, and had to set up new profile.

ian3   Oct 16, 2015 - 5:27 am

kaykeithharris, it will be 5 years since we were last on Indy, so yes we are looking forward to getting back on her. But it has been great trying other classes of ship in the RCI fleet. Plus I can't wait to get on Anthem next march. The ship looks absolutely awesome. ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‘

kaykeithharris   Oct 12, 2015 - 4:34 am

Can't wait to go October 2016 .on this ship again..

ian3   Oct 09, 2015 - 4:21 am
