Nothing exceptional

Sail Date: February 13, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

A very large basic ship, nothing spectacular nothing very wrong, a big average ship.

Pros: Jr. suite, speciality restaurants, entertainment

Cons: Size, lines, nickel and dimeing for any little extra

Recommends Independence of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
Ship is in great shape. Except for 600 cases of gastro-intestinal virus outbreak. Since this was a winter cruise everyone was inside and felt very crowded.
Food and Dining
Mediocre at best, Windjammer was dreadful, bland bland bland. Mytime dining was average service, slow and not attentive.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice jr suite would have liked reading light in sitting area
