I love the layout of the Windjammer with lot of window seating. The dining room is elegant and beautiful and the servers were very intent on meeting our every request. The promenade is a must for cruising! It's fun having a mall in the middle of the ocean. The Dog and Badger Pub was great\, and Sorrentos Pizza and the Promenade Cafe are highlights.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I love Royal Caribbean's food.


5 out of 5
Amazing talent from the ice skaters and singers and dancers and orchestra. I liked the rock band better last year\, although I can't remember their name.

Service and Staff

Staff was great. Everyone was very friendly and greeted us pleasantly.

Ship Quality

The staterooms could all use a really good cleaning and a carpet cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Like I said\, the staterooms need a good cleaning.

Pros: The ship is huge and has endless opportunities to keep you busy all the time. I loved the coffee at the promenade cafe\, and the Culinary tour was a highlight. Yes\, I love food!

Cons: I missed the pool BBQ that we had the year before.

Recommends Independence of the Seas? Yes!
