Ship Facts: Independence of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Independence of the Seas Deck Plans
Wow! What a way to spend our 10th wedding anniversary!
How amazing! From the windjammer buffet to Chops Grille, from the IOTS morning TV show to the ice dancing, from the Flowrider and the rock climbing wall to the library, this is such a brilliant ship with something for everyone. The staff are brilliant, the cabin was small but perfect and this was an amazing ship to spend our 10th wedding anniversary on.....

We really enjoyed the choice of food and the buffet decorations. We didn't purchase a drinks package as we are not big drinkers - cocktail of the day was very reasonably priced!

We loved the activities on the ship, thanks to Joff, Steve and all of the cruise director staff. We took part in so much, quizzes, scavenger hunts, the quest game show (what can we say, just don't miss it), singing with the band and the piano man, taking part in the talent show and learning the Michael Jackson thriller dance to perform to about 800 people!!

The service was excellent, no complaints.

Embarkation was so easy as they let us on the ship at about 11.30am when we weren't sailing until 4.00pm. However, disembarkation was a bit manic in Southampton as the cases are just labelled in huge long rows in the baggage hall; I don't think that this has anything to do with RCI though, so there's probably nothing that they can do.
