Over all, we really enjoyed our cruise on Independence of the Seas. At all elevators, we found an interactive map, which was extremely helpful. The staff was very courteous and helpful. We especially enjoyed the my time dining feature. Even though we did not always dine at the same time, we were seated in the same general area with our great wait staff, Gerald and Eschmael. Our cabin steward Noel made sure we had ice every day without being asked, since we had medication that needed to be kept cold. The only complaint we had, and it was minor, was that one bar ran out of mint, while the bar about 100 feet away had some. We had a similar experience with Dos Equis beer. The shore tenders were handled very well, and the entire crew was very accomadting and friendly.
