Independence Cruise Review by GeneralGrant
- Sail Date: April 2016
- Destination: USA
We had an accessible room (213) with plenty of closet and drawer space for our clothes. The ship was well maintained and public places tidy and clean.
I wish I could name all the crew members that seemed to be up at all hours anticipating our needs, but here are a few.
Lisa, the hotel manager and her assistant, Shannon were whirlwinds of service. Josh, the cruise director was everywhere ensuring that we made each excursion and also functioning at the very important duty as assistant bartender. Chris, in charge of housekeeping but more importantly, our bartender, seemed to be the first up in the morning making coffee in the Chesapeake Room and was there to put us to bed.
Happy Hour was “happy” as ACL served premium beer, wine and liquor with the hor d’oeuvres and got us ready for our dinner prepared by Jonathan, the chief who visited very table during the meals to check on us. The meals themselves were outstanding and served by some very attentive waiters. I don’t remember all their names, but Alexis, Ashley, Ivy, and Talil come to mind. Not a bad one in the bunch.
Junius was our historian and infused us with knowledge of the intra-costal canal and the history surrounding it and the hundreds of islands forming the Low Country.
All in all, with the outstanding weather and excursions in Charleston, Beaufort, Jekyll Island, Hilton Head and Savannah made it a vacation to remember.
