Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
We'll be back
We cruised on Voyager last November and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. So much so that within a week of returning home we booked this Canaries Cruise in Dec 2010.

Having booked the cruise we were told of this critic site and read some of the reviews which nearly put us off going.

However, having just returned home we cannot understand 99% of the objections.

Yes, the ship is very large and has a lot of passengers but we knew that before we booked.

Check in at Southampton was very quick and the staff extremely helpful.

The inside cabin was very spacious with everything we could hope for at our fingertips, and if it wasn't our steward was more than happy to supply anything we needed.

Because there were so many passengers, the Windjammer self service was somewhat crowded but there were several other eating places on board and we never had to wait very long.

Food was excellent with plenty of choice satisfying most peoples needs. Being Diabetic I was pleased to see "Sugar Free" Deserts.

Entertainment all day was very good. Joff, the cruise director had a superb sense of humour and his assistant Steve(Jimmy Osmond II) was a great partner for him. The quiz questions that they set were sometimes very dry in their humour but good fun.

The ice show was superb but you have to be very early to get good seats.

The main shows are a matter of personal choice but were all excellent as far as we were concerned although we did hear some complaints from other passengers, each to their own.

There was always a sun lounger available near the adults pool which was used on several occasions.

All facilities were excellent, cleanliness and hygiene was outstanding with hand sanitisers available everywhere.

On the whole an excellent cruises, well enjoyed by us both and we are looking forward to next years 18 night cruise with eager anticipation.

Well Done Royal Caribbean. WE WILL BE BACK

P.S. The toast was very very hard.
