We sailed on the "Independence of the Seas." The ship was magnificent. It was clean, and our room attendant kept our room spotless. The Capt's humerous remarks added lightness to the trip. The entertainment was so professional. We also appreciated the friendliness of the staff. There was always a"hello" or "how are you enjoying your trip?" We enjoyed the Ports of call namely, Azores, Madeira. There was large visibility of Gaffitti painted on walls, sidewalks, and windows in Vigo, Spain. It was so different from the Portugese Islands, which were so clean and the people were friendly.

My favorite stop.
Don't Miss: Eating establishments, and tour to the winery

Pros: I really appreciated the courtesy and gracious attitude of the servers and the cabin stewards. My wife and I were treated like royalty

Cons: If anyone found any faults with this cruise, they should stay home and read a dictionary
