6 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 29, 2009
Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

Royal Caribbean was a great line. Excellent food, friendly staff, a myriad of services. One complaint - you have to pay tips (if using a credit card) before 12 AM on the day before your last day - I wanted to leave a credit card tip since I had no cash on the last day but was out of luck.
