A Cruise on the Best

Sail Date: April 12, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

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

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!
