Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside

We really liked the ship, and the staff was  very helpful and kind. We are frequent Carnival cruisers, and unfortunately, the little extras didn't seem to compare.

Has a mini fridge, so you can bring your own stuff.

Ship Tip

If you like to eat healthy, I would suggest bringing your own food with you. Also, bring your own water as it is hard to access water without having to buy the bottled ones on the ship. Make the most of your day by planning your own activities, and you can skip most of the night time shows.

Wonderful island. Don't book an excursion, there is enough to do on your own.
