Awesome 1st cruise experience
Independence of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review summaryWe truly enjoyed our first cruise with Royal Caribbean and look forward to planning another one. It was an amazing experience.
Food and Dining
The food was average and the set up to the restaurant was not effective. This was probably my biggest disappointment of the cruise. You had to always wait on tea, juice, water, or lemonade to be made or poured. There never seemed to be enough staff for the restaurant and even having a refreshment package you had to go all the way outside the restaurant just to get your drink. I just was not happy with this at all.
Great coffees and snacks
Great times and pizza and service was good
Main Dining Room
The food was amazing and our wait staff was awesome. Our two servers Boaz Salick and Jeevan Dharai were great.
Great atmosphere. The nightly comedian piano player was awesome. He was great.
Day Spa and Fitness Center
Great updated equipment
Dunes Mini Golf
Good fun course.. lots of laughs
Rock Climbing Wall
Awesome adventure, great equipment, super staff to help instruct and motivate to get you to the top.
Center Ice Rink
The rink and equipment was great on the ship. The only negative thing was it was not open a lot so we really didn't get a chance to enjoy it.
Plenty of games and good hours
Saw concert Journey and really enjoyed it
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Get a room with a balcony and purchase a drink package. Both are worth the money
