Very relaxing cruise

Sail Date: April 12, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was very interesting in its layout, and fun to explore. The sailing across the Atlantic was very smooth, and the cabin layout was great.

Pros: The fitness center, the cleanliness, the friendliness of the crew, the smoothness of the trip and the cabin with balconey

Cons: the food was not quite as good as other R.C. ships

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!

Funchal, Madeira
We took the shuttle in to town and walked back. The town had interesting streets, and the espresso was terrific.
Ponta Delgada, Azores
we walked the streets, and it was very pretty, but being a sunday most shops were closed.
Vigo, Spain
We walked up to the Citadel, and though it had many steps, the sight of Vigo from there was wonderful, along with the view of the bay. We had a very good lunch at a small cafe one street off of the waterfront, and the food was the tastiest of the trip and at a good price. We were almost pushed into a seafood rest. that was advertised, and would have spent a fortune for lunch (over 65 euros). Instead our meal cost us each 10 euros, including beer. Not to be missed.
