The best cruise ever

Sail Date: March 07, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My wife and I have taken six previous cruises over the years and had never experienced one that came close to this one in total satisfaction! Everything was well planned from the booking experience to the leaving of the ship on the final day.

Pros: The food, shows, ports of call, room

Cons: Can't think of a thing

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Every night there was great entertainment and activities. The last night headliner act was a disapointment as it wasn't up to the standard we came to expect.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Take the water taxi as it is the best value if you make more than one trip a shore. The local merchants were too pushy and constantly approach you trying to sell something, even while on the beach!
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
A relaxing day on the beach
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Most of Old San Juan can be better seen by walking.
Don't Miss: The old fort
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We did the beach and the shoping here. This was by far the best of the ports we visited.
Don't Miss: The shoping
