July 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Independence of the Seas
Cruise on this ship definately not up to par with previous RC cruises. The food and service in both the dining room and Windjammer fell well below expectations. Food selections and preparations in both were only fair; slow to serve in dining room; noticed dishes piled up on tables in Windjammer while waiters were at stations laughing and fooling around. Overall ship staff on decks appeared to be grumpy, "blah" and inattentive. Entertainment at night only fair; lots of "dead" time on this ship. Ship upkeep could have been better, dishes/glasses by elevators /in lobbies and food on floor in lots of places. Public restrooms esp on pool deck were yucky. Smell of sewage by FlowRIder last day at sea. Excursions were nice and our cabin attendant was wonderful however! So it wasn't a total loss. Hoping that our next cruise on Allure is much better!
