My husband & I decided that we would travel the Independence in February 2013 for our birthdays. What a great decision! The ship was really nice & the staff was fantastic!!! From our stateroom attendant "Wendy" to our dining waitstaff EVERYONE was fabulous!!! The locations were beautiful, the weather was amazing!!! The food on board is delicious!!! Every meal was outstanding! We travelled the same week as the carnival triumph mess and boy were we happy to have chosen Royal Caribbean! Great job everyone!
