5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 13, 2016
Ship: Independence of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9662
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Royal Caribbean did not meet expectations of other cruises we have been on.  We found dirty glasses in our cabin when we boarded the ship. On the last night of the cruise, our table for two had a dirty table cloth from previous diners. We were unable to enjoy the outdoor movie due to kids in the pool and running around on the ship. It would seem that the pool could be closed for two hours of a five day cruise so adults could enjoy a movie. Ship was over crowded. Will not cruise with Royal Caribbean again.  This was the ninth cruise we have been on and the least enjoyed.
