5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 11, 2016
Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 7506
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ports of calls were awesome! We had great service in the main dining room every night we went. Actually, we had great service almost every where on the ship except the photo gallery and the Windjammer/Jade cafe.  I guess those staff members were having a bad day, LOL!  It did not stop us from having a good time!  However, we may no longer be Royal Caribbean loyalists!  I think some sensitivity training is in order!


Otherwise, we recommend this itinerary and the ship was roomy and very clean.

Main dining room "Romeo and Juliet", Andrea & Maria were awesome. Not so good service in the Photo Gallery and the Windjammer/Jade cafe

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was a pleasant surprise! We were at the bow with a portal window… However we did not expect how large the room would be! It was the most spacious room we've ever had on any of our 10 cruises without a suite! We actually had two large windows in our stateroom! However, the bathroom was normal for a cruise ship state room. Our state room attendant, "Antoine Edme", was very accommodating, sweet and extremely helpful! He made sure our luggage got into our room without us asking!
