Independence of the Seas

September 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Independence of the Seas

Mostly good

Service, food, etc. all met our high expectations.  Fpod service  by Jeana and John was expecially good

Getting off and on the ship was a pain....don't think they've done it before!!  In San Juan it took 40 minutes for our excurision group to disembark...for no apparent reason.....took 45 minute to get back on--a belated announcement claimed a security issue but no one told us that while waiting in line.

In 20 cruises, the cruise director was full of more phony enthusiasm than any other we've see.  And the entertainment sucked....at some point they've done away with nightly outside entertainers.....the RCL productions were fine, but two are enuf...the wedding game is NOT decent entertainment and that was the main event one night...Mosaic group on another nite....after four songs I never heard of, I walked out.

I think this cruise moved us up the RCL Diamond status and I'm not sure we'll do another RCL cruise....already have Norwegian line up for this spring.

Norwegian Jewel

April 2015 - 19 Night Panama Canal & Pacific Coastal (Houston To Seattle) Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

mixed bag

Several things they did well.  Some they didn't appear to have a clue. First, and worst, the cabin they sold as "obstructed oceanview" had no view whatsoever--the window was opaque, barely letting light in.   For all intents and purposes, an inside cabin at a premium price.  At best, a deceptive description.  The Colonial Cartegena excursion was probably 70% shops.  On another excursion we sat on the bus on the pier for over an hour just waiting to get started....on a bus with a non functioning bathroom...nice job!!  Two scheduled on board programs were cancelled.  Buffet food tended to be cold.  Entertainment tended to be above average.  Except for singers who seemed happy  to entertain themselves rather than gear their program for the demographics of the guests.  Getting off was easy.  All in all, a mixed bag.
