Review SummaryAll eight of our party was very impressed with our choice of cruise, ship itinerary etc...We had newlyweds traveling with us from Boston who experienced their first cruise, also our local Brandon, Florida friends who have cruised many times on Royal Caribbean themselves, and our family who also has had the pleasure of cruising before with RCL. We have all decided this is the ONLY way to travel. We already are in the planning stages of another on Independence in December, some of our group has already booked to experience this class ship and its' amenities to introduce to their kids who are 19 and 23 years old.
The Crypt was big enough for all of our group between the ages of 23 and 52, but we noticed the DJ started out with 70-80's music then changed around midnight to techno then the dancefloor was empty. We eventually left, but we even made some selections/requests that we never heard.
We would say the choice of the DJ, was a bad choice by the evidence of the dancefloor. Our only other complaint was the room service scrambled eggs came uncooked one morning.
A very positive cruise in general. Johhny Rockets was a great experience and worth the wait at sea for one lunch. Chop Grille was a nice dining choice and we certainly will take advantage of these two elegant restaurants once again in December.
Thanks for spoiling us on the best vacation ever!

Don't Miss: The duty free liquor stop.
Pros: The dining options are wonderful! The Chop Grille was the ultimate dining experience.
Cons: Needed piped in music on Deck 11 near the overhanging hot tubs.
