Great cruise!

Sail Date: October 06, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful--the art work throughout, including the Shakespeare themed dining rooms, enhanced the layout. Sparkling clean, with a state of the art workout facility, topped with a serene chapel, the Independence of the Seas is our favorite.

Pros: Ice skating show.

Cons: Crowded\, noisy Windjammer.

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Disappointed with the Windjammer--jammed with too many people many days\, and a limited selection of healthy salads. No outdoor dining options like other ships in the fleet added to the crowded mess.
Cabin / Stateroom
Seemed larger--loved the room and the balcony.
Service and Staff
Our dining team was exceptional\, as was the stateroom attendant. A mix-up with our romance package delivery was solved in a professional\, respectful manner.
Stunning ice shows. Lots of variety\, with some exceptional entertainment (the Motown group.
