Independence of the Seas

April 2015 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

1st trip on Royal Caribbean

Easier to board and leave ship. Nice that less time taken for evacuation info. Wink

Wonderful drink packages offered. This is a major plus. Love

Compared to Princess: Very disappointed in the number of lounge dance venues Royal has. Princess has several different lounges with many genes of music that play every night to dance. They play for the whole evening. Crying

Compared to Princess: The food was a 1 for the buffet for Royal compared to a 5 for Princess. Princess was top quality and hot. It was good in the MY TIME but not hot. Talking with other cruisers this was a major complaint. Sad

Compared to Princess: The late night food available was poor. Princess has a 24/7 deli café. They have Panini's, salads, desserts, coffee etc. Surprised

Yes, the Captains party in the street was a nice feature. More people can enjoy it. The music in the street is also very nice. Royal has this going for them.Happy

Royal is lacking greatly in the music department. On the Princess Cruise you had music playing at some place on the ship at most times. Much of the time, there was music in many locations. Plus, on a Caribbean Cruise they had the feel of the Caribbean going with Caribbean music.

 

Maybe someone who reads theses surveys can tell me of a Royal Caribbean Cruise ship that has more dance lounges with different venues of music.  I can live with the Angry poor buffet, and not hot food. The food in the MY TIME was Yummytasty. 

$ for $ Royal is a good Cruise. It just did not meet my expectations. Now that I know what to expect and what not to expect I won't be disappointed.  I may have to cruise with them again $ for $.

 Happy I (WE) learned a lot by talking to other passengers on the ship about Cruises. I would advise anyone to talk, ask questions and make friends. There is much to learn. We had a great time and made new friends. Some of which we probably will cruise with again.Happy

Falmouth, Jamaica - Ladies, have your hair braided here. Red booth just past the information booth and just before the Rum Factory. Send your man to the Rum Factory and tell Ricki, TJ and Barb sent him.
Independence of the Seas Independence of the Seas - If you buy a drink package you should be able to get a drink on you way off the ship, not true. Some days the bars do not open until 11. You can get breakfast type cocktails in Romeo and Juliet etc.
