8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Sail Date: January 03, 2015 Ship: Independence of the Seas Cabin Type: Inside Cabin Number:7275 Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 3 years ago
Although, I did notice a few things that didn't seem to be the norm in our past experience. There seemed to be a lot of training of staff going on during our stay and that may account for the lack of beverage service availability. When by the pool, I rarely saw a server and a couple of times at venues, we would have to wait a while before someone would approach us. That isn't to say that we won't book our next cruise with Royal Carribbean. We like what they offer onboard and enjoy the Promenade area. Looking forward to our next one!

Viktoria in the Schooner Lounge was outstanding. The entertainment crew for trivia and that sort were also great and we enjoyed them very much.
Another ship was docked when we got there, so most of the chairs had been claimed and the food line was very lengthy. We did find a couple of chairs under a palm tree and were able to relax, but am told it is much niced if you are the only ship there.
