Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
Independence of Seas only suitable for people with children
3 swimming pools - childrens pool very large geared for young kids and babies. Second pool dominated by children geared for older kids so not really suitable for adults. ADULT ONLY POOL - Tiny 20 people and its packed unsuitable for swimming.

Alcholic Drinks very expensive - drinks package available but still very expensive 8 USD for a Pint of beer 7 - 12 USD Glass of wine. SPA prices much higher than UK Prices.

Dining rooms theatre and general interiors very cold due to air conditioning.

Theatre - Lower standard of entertainment in comparison to other cruises some highlights buy not many - on board singers and dance shows almost of amateur standard. Ships orchestra very good they saved the poor quality singing and dancing of the theatre shows.

Children allowed in most bars and theatre till late and allowed unsupervised in cinema

Not a relaxing cruise outside areas particularly were always congested. Sunbeds rare as usual.

Appears that the lowest cost ports of call were chosen VIGO MALAGA ALICANTE inparticualar not very interesting or at all scenic. Ships entertainment for Sail offs was not very memorable

Food very good and staff friendly - ship very clean and well maintained. Cruise director was good and made the final 2 nights entertainment very memorable. Plenty of things to do but overall my least favourite cruise.
