14 Night Norway & Cork (Southampton Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 07, 2013
Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7548
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago
The ship is in excellent condition, constructed around the Royal Promenade,
an unusual and excellent idea for a center of a ship.
Overall, the crew were excellent with a minor exception. The folks in the excursion department could use some training as far as people skills are concerned.
The food was excellent with the exception of deserts which did not match up with other cruises we have taken.
We rate the entertainment very highly, particularly the production programs in the evenings.
