Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
Best Cruise!
We cruised on RC's Liberty of the Seas last February with our family - there wre 15 of us in all - My parents, brother and family, sister and family and our 3 kids. The Independence of the Seas ship is very similar so we were familiar with it from the start!

We thoroughly enjoyed the shows - ice skating, RC singers and dancers, Love and Marriage show, The Unexpected Boys show, Magic show, etc. They were all fantastic, fun and professional! The cruise director, Joff, was so engaging through the entire cruise! They also had 'dancing in the street' where everyone was dancing on the Promenade... what a great time!

We had 3 ports of call... Grand Cayman - we swam with the stingrays and had 2 snorkel stops. This cost us about $40 each and we were on a catamaran that included about 25 people in all. It was a good time - I've had better snorkeling elsewhere but it was good and our friends thoroughly enjoyed it.

Our 2nd port of call was Jamaica. We did the Chukka zip line. There were 7 lines and 2 repels. Oh My Gosh... GREAT tour. We booked this through RC's website - $99 per person but well worth the money! It was very exciting and fun - great views and a variety of zip lines... It was safe and fun!

Our 3rd port of call was Haiti. We booked a cabana over the ocean through RC. This was the best! It included a cooler of bottled water, a personal attendant, partially covered seating and upgraded lunch as well as floating mats for all of us! They also included snorkel masks and fins if you wanted to snorkel! We had a fantastic day! Lunch was grilled on the beach - hamburgers, shrimp, steaks, fresh cold salads, dessert.. WOW! GREAT DAY!

We loved the ship, ports of call, food, EVERYTHING!
