Overall, I found the trip relaxing. However, the food was absolutely miserable, and the state of the ship is in dire need of refurbishment and furniture replacement. Old and unpleasant lounge chairs / sofas all over. Just looks like it's been in service for a very long time with a very rough crowd.
The ship is beautiful, the food delicious. The entertainment wa great. Bathrooms kept clean. The pools and hot tub was great. It was so much food morning noon and night..The workers . I really will sail was great kind and respectful sail again...
This trip was a rewarding experience to myself and wife who find ourselves working even when we are on vacation. We finally overcame that by going on this cruise where we had the freedom to enjoy each other's company in the comfort and splendor on board the Independence Of The Seas. We are already planning a family vacation in the not too distant future.
Would definitely recommend this ship. Great for familes and friends. Customer service was great. Some of the decks design were beautiful. Good Food for everyone. Buy a booze package as expensive like anywhere else.
Overall we had a great time on this cruise. Our biggest issue was the uncooperative weather. It was unseasonably cool and cloudy. It definitely didn't feel like a tropical vacation. However we enjoyed every other aspect of this trip. Or, great food, plentiful fruity drinks lively entertainment and beautiful surroundings.
This was a relaxing cruise, with plenty of activities and the right amount of down time. The ship never felt overcrowded except during breakfast buffet when we had difficulty finding seating. We will definitely use Royal Caribbean again!
Our trip to he Caribbean on Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas was so wonderful. The staff, the food, the treatment, and all of the activities were so wonderful we wish we were still there. Thank you Royal Caribbean for an amazing time!
