Independence was a GREAT SHIP

Sail Date: January 31, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We were very pleasantly surprised at the beauty, size and comfort of the Independence. The ship was beautifully appointed as were the staterooms. The Promenade was fantastic with the pubs, shops and cafes as well as the entertainment performed there. The Showroom had great shows by the singers and dancers as well as comedians and other performers. The crew was wonderful and very helpful and pleasant. BEST OF ALL, THE SHIP RODE FANTASTICALLY. We had to look out our window to see if the ship was moving. We felt NO MOVEMENT about 95% of the time. It was the best riding ship on which we have cruised out of our 70+ cruises. Surprisingly, the food at the buffet was so good, that we only ate dinner in the dining room only 2 times  during both our 6 day and our 8 day cruises. Hot foods were hot and cold foods were cold. We will DEFINATELY go on this ship again.
