January 2015 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
We traveled with 2 other families (total group size of 16) and it was an even better experience than we anticipated. The ship is amazing! There is never a dull moment and something for every age. Our kids ranged in age from 6 to 15. The ship is beautiful, the staff is fantastic, the food is top-notch, the entertainment is great (don't miss the ice show!), and the only downside was the weather (but that is something completely out of anyone's control). It was the best family vacation ever. We had a connecting ocean view room so it was easy to have access to our kids, yet able to shut the door and have quiet time without them as well. I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone!
