Family Fun Cruising at Christmas by mos2050

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Our party of 11 (9 family members of 3 generations plus 2 adult friends) loved it! As our family's hosts, we were deeply satisfied. It was a big investment for us, and it was totally worth it. The sailing was rougher than we expected, however, and our two young adult sons spent most of one sea day in their cabins, despite heavy medication. Still, they are eager to do it all again! Royal Caribbean does cruising so well, we can't imagine any better.

Disappointing Caribbean Cruise by FLcharlie

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The over all staff was amazing.... honestly amazing. Lorenzo in the Champaign Bar made everyone feel like family..... The restaurant servers were very accommodating. Love the towel animals..... lol.... The pool staff made sure we had everything we needed. However, we had a incident where our A/C stopped working on an inside cabin, not once, but 3 times and the guest services rep was not willing to assist us, moving to a new cabin etc. until we had to be forceful. Which is not how it should be. She told us wait to see if they can fix it. The second time was at 11 pm. The last night it happened again. I truly want to focus on the positives here..... but this was my first cruise on Royal Caribbean, my spouses birthday gift and birthday celebration, since we were on the boat for their actual birthday. And all I can think about is the experience with our cabin....... I would recommend this cruise. I just hope someone from Royal Caribbean reads this and shares this experience with the necessary parties so this does not happen to someone else.

Not the Worst time, but certainly not the best cruise by fithappens2014

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I will think very hard about using this cruise line again. They changed so much with even the movies etc. after they changed our port. I understand about the weather change. It didn't make since to have so much of the rest of the itinerary change on the ship.

Did not get to enjoy everything on the ship. And the food was not good at the speciality diners or the main dinner.

Nice 1 port suite cruise. by jerr52

Verified Review

Other than slow room service and a suite with a Way too small shower stall, and room temperature you couldn't really control, a great cruise and ship.

Excellent staff on board! by Colleendon

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Can’t say enough good things about our waiter and assistant waiter for dinners each night. Also our room attendant was very accommodating . All staff with exception to one front desk clerk, was over the top with excellent customer service and couldn’t do enough for us!

Awesome Get Away by mackbowie

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband and I really enjoyed our cruise. The only thing we did not like was the hours of the Windjammer. It didn't seem to be open when we wanted a bite to eat outside of the main dining room. Johnny Rockets served something that looked like hamburger but did not taste like it. We loved the hibachi restaurant and the service. Looking forward to our next cruise

Convenient and enjoyable way to make our annual migration from UK to Florida. by scjc0307

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.
