Had a lovely time onboard. The ports were not that great. The independance of the seas was fantastic.   Lovely food in the dining room.  Choice of desert was not that much in windjammer.  Ice skating and violin player was fabulous. Royal  Promenade parties were great too. Love and marriage show hilarious. Bars with live music were very good.  Cherbourg was the worst port to visit.  Absolutely nothing to do.  Most passengers got off ship and returned within a few hours. Bilbao was nice and Gijon was ok.  Would definitely recommend Independence of the seas and Royal Caribbean.
