Independence of the Seas Cruise Review by christina bradley
- Sail Date: June 2012
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom
Alcholic Drinks very expensive - drinks package available but still very expensive 8 USD for a Pint of beer 7 - 12 USD Glass of wine. SPA prices much higher than UK Prices.
Dining rooms theatre and general interiors very cold due to air conditioning.
Theatre - Lower standard of entertainment in comparison to other cruises some highlights buy not many - on board singers and dance shows almost of amateur standard. Ships orchestra very good they saved the poor quality singing and dancing of the theatre shows.
Children allowed in most bars and theatre till late and allowed unsupervised in cinema
Not a relaxing cruise outside areas particularly were always congested. Sunbeds rare as usual.
Appears that the lowest cost ports of call were chosen VIGO MALAGA ALICANTE inparticualar not very interesting or at all scenic. Ships entertainment for Sail offs was not very memorable
Food very good and staff friendly - ship very clean and well maintained. Cruise director was good and made the final 2 nights entertainment very memorable. Plenty of things to do but overall my least favourite cruise.
