December 2015 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
This was our first cruise so I don't have much to compare it against, but overall a very fun vacation and a must-do-again! The ship had all sorts of activities to always keep us busy. The service was good. The Windjammer cafe's food was much better than we expected. We selected a junior suite and it was perfect for us. The people onboard are super friendly. There were enough bars everywhere, but a little disappointed there was only 1 nightclub. The casino was a lot of fun and I'm not much of a gambler. There were also enough smoking areas throughout the ship to be sufficient. The pools were all shallow really which was a little disappointing but I guess for them to be on a ship in the first place is pretty cool - there's probably a size limitation due to the floors below. Overall, I would definitely recommend cruising period and cruising with Royal Caribbean.
