Thanksgiving 2021 week cruise by raynan6763

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

We love cruising but wearing the masks in corridors and open areas when you have asthma is hard. Wish the whole ship was vaccinated restricted so we could get rid of masks.

Ship has maintenance issues but staff is excellent. by edattalo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

Royal Caribbean should have had this ship in tiptop shape being out of service the past year and half. Many systems need work. Makes one wonder how things are maintained below deck. Their workers are their best asset. Everyone is friendly. The staff pushes cleanliness and when you went into the Windjammer there was this server that was dancing and singing "Washy Washy". People really got a kick out that and there were many smiles. They had 12 sinks with soap and faucets before you went in. Some were out of soap (so you had to try others before you found one working)

GREAT FIRST CRUISE SINCE COVID by pfb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

Very impressed with what Royal Caribbean is doing to help with the covid problem. With the exception of not enforcing "their" rule about Unvaccinated Children in Vaccinated Only areas (Specifically Bars). Wish there had been places to dance in the evening.

Fun; but, wish I had known the Refreshment drink package was worthless. by forrestdix

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Independence of the Seas

Bring your own food or do paid dining. Don't buy the Refreshment drink package. If you do included dining, lean toward fried foods. Do not get the prime rib or the key lime pie.

Pretty Fun Family Cruise by xtianstrange

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Independence of the Seas

Overall, not a bad ship. We were challenged with some of the COVID rules and regulations as they were either not equally enforced or didn't seem to make sense - i.e., we could walk freely on the Deck 5 Promenade but our children could not SIT in chairs on the same Promenade. Seemed weird. There were limited activities for the children but we made up for that. Missing Coco Cay was hard since we were really looking forward to it. In general things seemed to be aimed at a slightly older crowd. Oh and can we please, finally, get rid of smoking on the ship??

Very Relaxing by judithh1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

We were so anxious to go on a cruise again, we selected this one because we could drive there, the price was excellent, and the ship wasn't filled more than half, so we felt really safe. It met our expectations.

Wonderful cruise experience overall, but many shore excursions excluded cut off at 70 years old. by wzebrowsk1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

Boarding the ship was quite easy and very safely done. The ship itself was very clean and well maintained overall. Out stateroom was clean and comfortable, but make tissues available in PLAIN SIGHT. That would include the restroom of exposed somewhere in the cabin. The entertainment was also very good. Due to the age restrictions provided by the cruise operator AND Royal Caribbean REQUIRING you to book through them, it was disappointing. As usual, the food and service was excellent. The trip was uneventful and smooth. Leaving the ship was also quite easy and quick. Overall, it was a good cruising experience.

Great family vacation by tkrohach1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Independence of the Seas

We had a wonderful time with our family. The only complaint was the horrible excursion on the first port. The drive was an hour to a “beautiful lagoon” which ended up being a muddy, smelly lake with no beach and rocks in the water. It was so sad that we wasted a day on this excursion. Everyone complained. We would have been better off staying on the ship or just visiting the beautiful port.

Food Snob by mikekay72

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas

The first 2 days were very boring. Shows were OK, but not outstanding. Buffet was glorified Golden Corral. Bed was HARD. However the service and staff were impeccable, and excursions were outstanding.

No Waiting Excellent Service by wjtraveler

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Independence of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Royal Caribbean has gone to great lengths to safeguard your health. I felt safer among 1500 vaccinated adults that had all been tested in the last 3 days than I do at home in any restaurant or store. The ship was at less than 50% occupancy, no waiting any where.
