8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 31, 2015
Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9261
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

As always, the food is delicious and very well prepared.  The staff is always friendly and helpful, no matter how many times I asked if I was walking to the front or the back of the ship.  The entertainment was the best of any other cruise line - including singers, dancers, ice skating and even The Unexpected Boys who did the songs of The Four Seasons.  All in all, it was a terrifically fantastic vacation.

Our cabinman Iwan Nigel was outstanding - so helpful, friendly, poite and always greeted us by name, always asking about our day. He went above and beyond with his personality and work standards.

To be on a private island surrounded by mountains was paradise. Food terrific too. Great to not have to spend more $$. and just relax
