Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
Cruise was all we expected and more. A fabulous vacation!

This was my first cruise, and I couldn't be happier. The service was excellent, the food fabulous. I was impressed with cleanliness of the ship and the attention to detail paid by all crew members. The six-night cruise included stops in George Town, Grand Cayman, Falmouth, Jamaica and Labadee, Haiti.

We booked excursions in Grand Cayman and Jamaica. They went off without a hitch. In Labadee, RCI's private island, the only difficultly we encountered was trying to decide which beautiful beach we would lounge on for the day.

The 11th deck pool area was our favorite place to spend the days, and we attended entertaining shows at night. The twenty-somethings in our group danced into the wee hours of the morning at the night clubs.

We ate breakfast and lunch at the Windjammer buffet. Food was always fresh, varied and plentiful. We ate dinners in the elegant main dining room where the head waiter, our table waiter (Vic) and assistant waiter (George) ensured we had a memorable dining experience with each meal.

The Café promenade was our go-to place for afternoon coffee and a little snack.

Our stateroom attendant J.J. was marvelous.! She greeted us by name every time we passed her in the corridor and always checked to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in our room.

I would highly recommend Royal Caribbean to anyone considering a cruise.
