We had a wonderful time on this cruise. This was our first time on Independence of the Seas and the second time doing this itinerary. It is a beautiful ship and 8 nights is the perfect length for us. The ship was very clean and all the crew were very friendly and helpful. The food in the dining room was excellent. The Windjammer is very good for buffet food. We opted for the late dinner seating at 8:30 and very glad we did. Some nights we stopped by Jade around 7:00 for great sushi before dinner. We enjoyed watching the Flowrider surf simulator, next time maybe we'll actually try it. One of our favorite spots was the Schooner bar. The bartenders (Andriy and AJ) were very attentive. It is a quiet spot for a drink in the afternoon when you want a few minutes out of the sun and a lively piano bar for mingling after dinner-even though the piano player wasn't very good. Can't wait to cruise with Royal Caribbean again next year.
