Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
Great Cruise
We boarded the ship in Southampton,embarkation was very good for all the people who arrived at same time.

This is our second time on this size of ship,Freedom was the first time we had inside cabin it was way to small,this time we booked Deluxe stateroom with balcony yes very pleased with this plenty room for all our clothes,also it was Victor who kept it clean and tidy,loved the towel arrangements at night the Monkey was the best,we did notice our bed was'nt turned down at night with choclates on the pillars,Freedom did it for you same class of ship.

The best shows we watched was the both ice shows also Dancing in the street,the rest was not for us,also enjoyed the Roulette i was lucky this time.

Dinning we thought for a change when we booked the cruise MY TIME in King Lear the waiters brilliant thank you Brian Arwel also Victor table -559 first sitting

but we went very impressed with the food mine i sent back three tmes my friend once my husband nearly sent his back,there was not a problem in changing your choice of dish,we felt the standard had dropped a little from The Freedom ship.

First time we have taken out a drink package not sure we did the correct thing,we would not do it again.!

We did'nt have trouble finding sun beds,also we did'nt do any trips it was great having the ship to our-selves.The Dog&Badger was one of the worst one for getting served EG:-lack of bar staff in the day when sailing as we did have a lot of bad weather so to cold to go up on deck.

But yes it was a nice break over the 14 nights.
