Independence of the Seas

14 Night Caribbean Transatlantic (Southampton To Ft. Lauderdale)

Sail date: October 28, 2018

Ship: Independence of the Seas

Cabin number: 6616

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

This was our 23rd transatlantic, 3rd on Independence. Although the ship is more crowded than Celebrity Eclipse with some questionable dress codes (too much bare flesh in elevators and Windjammer) the overall atmosphere was jolly and relaxed. We appreciated the informal format of the Diamond Lounge Happy Hour and the MyTime dining arrangements.

For shopping it is worth walking away from the courthouse area!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

It is worth the short trip into town to see something other than shops!

San Juan, Puerto Rico
