Great Cruise

Sail Date: March 29, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

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.

Pros: Food, Great Boat, Nice Cabin, low price

Cons: Mediocre Ports

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!
