Hi everyone,
I am new on here today after googling cruise forums and would just like a bit of general info, and after reading a certain post on here my mind putting at rest!
My husband and I (he 47 I am 33) have just booked our first cruise. 11 days on Independence of the Seas around the canaries from Southampton.
We booked with First Choice and were told it was full board. Since then I have seen posts from people saying there are $25 cover charges to eat in the restaurants, no way to top up your on board sea pass with cash it has to be card only, awful food, need i go on?
This is a holiday of a lifetime for us and although I don't believe alot of what i have read I am of course a little worried!
Any advice, help, correct info or direction to more information would be very much appreciated as you all appear to be very frequent cruisers!
Thank you in anticipation for your help and understanding
Best regards
