I was reasonably pleased with the cruise. I had a nice time with my wife. We spent a lot of time on deck twelve soaking up the sun. I even walked around the jogging track while my wife made two different visits to the spa. She certainly enjoyed the acupuncture on the Tuesday and the pedicure on the Friday. Two days we spent at sea with no shore visits. However, be prepared to pay for the visits to ...

We planned a family of 8 trip for 3 nights to the Bahamas with 2 stops. The boat only made one of the stops, and we were never told anything about cancelling the second stop. This was very disappointing to the whole family. Otherwise the boat was great and so was the staff. We were not that pleased with the sit down dinners that were offered in the dining rooms. The buffet was the better ...

Husband and I, both in mid-fifties, Diamond Plus members, saw this come up at a great price and booked a couple of weeks prior to sailing. It was a three night cruise to Nassau and Coco Cay to come back to a 7 day cycle as it returned from the UK. We received an e-mail stating that due to the ship's transatlantic crossing, the coast guard would be conducting inspections and to not expect ...

We went on a short 3 night Bahamas cruise on the Independence of the seas in December 2012. Apparently it was the ships first cruise in the US in 4 years. Previously it was in the UK. The food in the windjammer was nothing to rave about and it was very difficult finding a place to eat, especially during lunch. We have been on the Freedom class before and didn't find this to be an issue. The ...

I was already booked on the liberty for the following week and was looking for something to take a couple of my friends on. Normally I would avoid the bahamas at any cost, but when I saw the independence was doing the route, and that balcony cabins were going at the same rate as inside cabins, I threw all reservations to the wind. Now, as everyone knows a vacation is what you make of it, and ...

I sailed on the Independence of the Seas a few weeks ago, on a short 3 day-er wanting to reacquaint myself with line after many years. My previous sailing were on Vision class ships so this Freedom class was a pretty big step up. Overall, I enjoyed the cruise. As other reviewers have mentioned, we did not get to Nassau (not RCI's fault). I did not disembark in Freeport as I had little interest ...

Three night cruise Cococay and Nassau, or we thought so. Went to Cococay and had a great time. So far so good. Food great, service great and room great. Then the disaster began. Captain told us do to over booking of slots there we not more spaces for us to pull into Nassau. Very disappointment since we had book this cruise with another couple that had never been there. Ok can deal with this ...
