A Cruise in July...

Sail Date: June 25, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

This is the third largest ship of the RC line! If I had not been on the largest one, the Oasis of the Sea, I would have had no comparison.

Pros: The excursions were outstanding

Cons: The amount of time spent at each port was to short

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Everything about this ship was top shelf! It was extremely clean and laidout very well.
Food and Dining
I have had better food on the Oaisis of the Sea. But, this is a good second!
Cabin / Stateroom
If I had not been on the Oasis of the Sea, I would not know that there was a stateroom the next notch better than this one.
Service and Staff
Large number of friendly people everywhere on the ship! They were very polite and helpful, all the time!
The shows were much better on the Oasis of the Sea.
Cannes, France
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Gibraltar (U.K.)
Well worth seeing and going on the tour that went in to the caves of "the rock".
Barcelona, Spain
We needed much more time to see this large city! Our excursion was very good but not long enough.
Vigo, Spain
Alicante, Spain
Lisbon, Portugal
Clearly the best of the best! This city is extremely beautiful!
