December 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Independence of the Seas
Not our usual experience
It takes a very bad experience to be a bad cruise! Afterall, you're not cooking, cleaning, and everyone is there to serve you during your time aboard. The entertainment was the best we had ever experienced, and the variety was appreciated! Finis was amazing, the comedian was a great way to start That said, this cruise was lacking a bit compared to others we have been on. The tendering process at Belize was not acceptable, and it was not appropriate to emphasize that the self-carry/early disembarkation process would not include elevator service, only to have large groups exit the elevator was irritating. The ice rink was only available during one of the two "at sea" days, and it would have been nice if they had let you know in a cruise compass that the second day of the cruise would be the "last chance" for the ice rink! The cruise director was the best we'd experienced yet though.
