June 2016 - Independence of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean
This is a great cruise to have fun in the sun all along the Western Med. Just don't look for pool weather until you get south of Lisbon. The ship is well maintained with a friendly crew. We were surprised to find many more Brits than Americans on this cruise and the cruise line follows those interests in both entertainment and menus. The Brits seemed more polite and a bit more reserved than yanks except when it comes to football and we enjoyed their company. I can't say we enjoyed the brit comedy shows as their accent and sense of humor were quite different. We found plenty of food variety in the Windjammer so we did not need to develop a taste for black pudding or bangers and mash.
We enjoyed all out tours and all ran flawlessly.
