The Indepedence of the Sea is a beautiful ship and one of the cleanest ships we have been on. The food in the dining room was excellent, but the service though very friendly and outgoing needed a little polishing. Our outside stateroom was a good size and very clean.
The Cruise Director was very talented and highly entertaining.
The activities on the ship were plentiful, but the evening entertainment in the lounges was poor. Theatre acts were good.
Our 4 ports of call were excellent. The old city of San Juan is beautiful and Labadee was a very pleasant surprise.

Ship Tip

We had either a breakfast or lunch in the dining room. Those meals were very good and less hurried.

The port is so easy to manipulate when driving.

Second time there. Going out to the airport to watch the planes come in is thrilling.
