First time on Indy have sailed from Southampton before after flying in from Australia. Embankment was fast and easy no wait only 15min from start till on ship. Room was ready by 2pm at time we boarded. Ship was clean and Ready for the cruisers. Room 6331 prominade was kept spotless the whole cruise. We ate in buffet breakfast deck 3 and food was ample cereal fruit hot food pastries toast. MyTime dining booked same time and table each night. Food was outstanding and seamed larger serves than previous sailings Wait staff excellent. Lunch was had in dining room but after breakfast only had salad bar freshly made by waiters you could order from menu to. Shows were excellent Grease Commedian The Beatles show. Was lacklustre and singing was mediocre. 70s night in prominade was a blast even though we have seen it on other ships it's still fun. Day trips Madeira, booked tour cable car and wicker basket ride outstanding 5 hrs. Tenerife did our own thing hop on bus Las Palmas did hop on bus Lanzarote booked tour camel ride and fir mountain what a fun day and the mountains are unbelievable. Vigo walk straight off ship into old town plenty to see and restaurants The only thing we would say is due to the wind all outdoor activities were cancelled on sports deck while sailing so not to much to do indoors other than sit in a bar. The days with sun and in port day spa was set up in adults pool area and 15min massage was a treat. We always sail with RC the service is outstanding and clean fresh decor. You must try the flow rider
