LOVED THE SHIP
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Loved watching passengers of all ages attempt the flowrider and the rock climbing wall. I have always thought that RCCL has much better shows than More Carnival and the same is true for this cruise. The ice show was excellent, but you have to be in the promenade on the morning of the 3rd day at 8am to get tickets for all four shows offered on the cruise, The most amazing show was Finis Henderson. He is a singer/impressionist. His renditions of Michael Jackson, Elvis, Celo Green, Tom Jones and many others were spot on. The Independence of the Seas dancers were very good-singers, not so much. First port of call was St Maarten and is one of my favorites with a beautiful beach and lots of shopping. St Kitts was okay. San Juan was okay, toured the Cristobel Fort. Labadee was just okay. FYI: if you are going swimming, be sure to head to the Caribbean beach (where the waverunners and kayaks are) The beach towards the zipline and rollercoaster is aweful. Huge rocks at the shoreline that you have to traverse to make it into the ocean. Loved the casino. Saw a woman actually win $20,000 jackpot with a royal flush on a poker machine. All in all a great cruise and I would definitely do it again! Less
