January 2014 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
First the not so good. Fox news has been droped from the channel line up and we were completely in the dark on stateside news. CNN is not the "headline news" I remembered. This is 2014 and you would think some sort of basic internet service would be available at no charge. The chair situation is a little crowded when you have this many people on a ship. Even Windjammer seating was tight most of the time. Now for the good. The service was personable and friendly. There is more to do on this ship than you can get done. I thought there would be long lines for the Flowrider or the rock wall. Generally this was not the case and the well orginized staff kept moving along. Stateroom and Dining room service was excellent. I thought the food was very good. It was never as hot as you would like, but they were serving 3500 guests. All in all an awesome time in 80 to 90 degrees when it was 9 degrees where we were from.
