Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
LOVED this cruise

Embarkation: Got to the port at 10am. Security made us sit in the hot sun on the curb until 10:30 before we could enter the bldg. So BEWARE, don't get there before that time!

Once we got inside process went smooth and quick. Was on ship by 11:30 and eating in Windjammer

Cabin: Had junior suite 9272 was fantastic. Bigger than any Jr. suite we have had before. 2 loungers and 2 chairs and table on balcony

Ship: was beautiful, well maintained and didn't feel crowded unless there was a parade or an event.

Food: MDR was just okay. Windjammer was better. Like all cruises food has gone downhill. But had plenty to eat.

Ports: Grand Cayman tendered in, was beautiful, went to Smith Cove Beach. No one there.

Jamaica, just got off ship and shopped. Was nice no one hassled you to buy things. Some stores would barter, others wouldn't.

Labadee was fantastic! Ship brought food onto the island and BBQ'd. Plenty of loungers available to sit on, was warm but lots of shade under the palm trees. Nice bathrooms.

Debarkation: We used luggage valet and had an excursion after we got to Ft Lauderdale as we had a late flight. Walked off ship at 9am got on our buss and went to Sawgrass Mill mall. Was huge!

LOVED this cruise!
