Great Experience for our 1st time on a cruise

Sail Date: February 08, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had a wonderful time on the Independence of the Seas.  The highlights were the balcony room, the entertainment on board, and the overall activities available.  The weather was not accommodating for our shore excursions due to rain, but did not dampen our experience.  Departing the ship was also slow due to Customs, probably something that more experienced travelers are already aware.  We are looking forward to the next time that we have the opportunity for a cruise, most likely would not choose Haiti or Jamaica again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was wonderful, particularly enjoyed the opportunity to walk out and spend some time, even when looking at just water.
