Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
A bumpy ride on ( The Independence of the seas)
Arrived at Southampton 11.30.am....ABS car parks were very efficient and helpful? check in aboard ship no problem ! We were having a meal in the windjammer by 12.30.pm.. In our cabin by .1.20.pm.we had one suit case missing which arrived a few hours later,Cabin was well looked after and kept very clean throughout our trip.Went to dinner at 6.00.that evening in the romeo and Juliet restaurant, Meals and waiter service were as good as we had ever had.?.Don't forget we are first time cruisers and nothing to compare with...Breakfast time we went to the Macbeth's restaurant which we found to be equally as good.The only thing we did not like was the hardness of the toast around the edges (It was like concrete) !.One gentleman on our table broke a tooth..!...This tough toast was served every breakfast throughout the trip..I think it must have been some hardtack left over from Lord Nelsons days lol..

Entertainment in the evenings we thought was very very good especially the ice shows.! After watching the evening shows we would go for a few drinks If we could find some comfortable chairs it was a bonus.There was loads to do for all age groups! A few kids were left to run wild,and this did make things a bit unpleasant!but we have grandchildren of our own and know its difficult when they are exited ,apparently there was about 400 on board and not the usual contingent of about 1000 during school holidays.. ..Another little moan for us oldies, was the buggies and the mobility scooters although not a big problem .And O yes,the price of drinks ..Anyone who was a member of alcoholics anonymous would be cured in a month.?.Now all jokes aside and On a more serious note ..We did enjoy the trip apart from the hurricane and the 30 foot waves and having to miss Madeira as a result.lol. The cruise was great and everybody on board were very very friendly .Would we go again,?..YES
