December 2014 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
I booked two staterooms together in March 2014
*** They put us in different dining rooms initially... they fixed it by the 2nd night.
We tried to watch the bg screen movies
*** Both times the pool person came up to pressure clean the hot tubs and pools. So we either got wet or left, we chose the later of the two.
The dinnerware was often left on the tables out on the lido deck.
The list of things to do was often just spa items
*** We attempted to attend a seminar on herbal medicine ... after going to 3 different places (based on newspaper and verbal information) we arrived 15 minutes late, it was almost over except to go another place ((Upstairs ... my husband is disabled)) and see what herbs she was talking about. WE DIDN'T GO
Most of the staff you had to step on their foot to get them to speak to you...
*** Even then it was usually just a return "Hello" or "Have a good day."
My husband left his cell phone in the stateroom upon departure .. claim was "It was not there"
I will stick to Carnival.
*** They go to mostly the same ports of call.
