England Part VII - A Really Big Boat

The Independence of the Seas was in port in Southampton.
She's HUGE!

4375 passengers.
1360 crew members.
3580 cabins and suites.

5 bars, 4 elevators, 3 swimming pools, 9 hole miniature golf course, ice skating rink, and a full size boxing ring..

You can even get married on board.

For more about my trip to England please scroll down to previous posts.


  1. My Lordy...That Is One Big Ship!
    I'm not sure I would want to be on such a HUGE Ship...If something were to happen....Well, you know what I mean?

  2. That would scare me.
    I grew up in a town half that size and I thought that was even too big.

  3. They do get some huge ships in fact I used to work for the former National Dock Labour Board as a Secretary in Southampton, so you have been on my home ground:)

  4. Wow! That is a biggy!
    With the negative news about cruise ships this year I might be reluctant to travel on one, but I know lots of people who love it!

    Wednesdays are good for me (usually) email me and lets make plans for tea!

  5. That is some ship - I am no sailor so do not envy the people on board!

  6. We came very close to booking a cruise for our anniversary this year, but finally decided on a trip to New Orleans, instead. Damn, that's a big ship!

  7. This sounds like a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Sham, and if so, I know basically what it's all about, as you know by now. Lately I've been down-sizing, however.... :)

  8. Is that how you got there? Nah....

  9. Tee-hee, we used to call those ships the __ of Disease. They're great ships though, like being in the West Edmonton Mall!
