Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
A Royal Vacation Memory

Excellent Cruise and Customer Service.  We did the 6 night - Western Caribbean, Feb 23-March 1. Plenty of entertainment. One particular aspect about cruising is all the different people you meet. Not disappointed! Made many friends.. Staff all friendly and accommodating. Staterooms were kept in good order every evening and the main dining selections did not disappoint. This is our third RC cruise so we have limited experience and expectations. Constant hand cleaning before dining was requested and wasn't obtrusive.

Only a couple negatives. One being minor - I'm an exercise nut and some of the cardio-equipment was showing its age with slow and unresponsive user inputs. But you were still able to get in the workout.

The other negative was more apparent and I'd like to pass this on to future cruisers. Check with the cruise line to inquire as to what conventions will be participating on "your" chosen cruise. This cruise had a convention with participants showing off their "geek" status. A few of the venues were closed for some of their specific events..This made us change our plans twice. We had a few conversations with fellow passengers about similar situations. Well at least at made for some great people watching...

But that being aside, would definitely sail again!
