Independence of the Seas

Sail Date: April 20, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a fabulous cruise...start to finish!  The ship was immaculate top to bottom and accommodations comfortable.  All staff were polite, energetic, helpful.  We especially enjoyed the "My Time Dining" option where we could select our dinner time each day and not have to eat at the same assigned time.  The quality of the on board entertainment was high level.  We especially enjoyed the Ice Skating show--amazing what the skaters can do on a limited ice surface!  In addition the cruise singers, dancers, orchestra were top notch! Our shore excursion were also as described, handled professionally.  


Special thanks go to Donovan (who took care of our stateroom) and Jeffery and Rosario (who were our waiters most evenings)
