People raved about independence the ship was lovely But the food in Romeo and Juliet left a lot to be desired Totally put me off cruising as where do you go when you've paid all that money and can't eat the food (chicken undercooked shaves steak big thick lumps couldn't cut let alone chew It was a expensive experience the cabin was excellent had booked junior suite Staff good entertainment was out of this world as was the ice show but it was spoils by poor food and I was not the only one to complain but nobody was interested The disembarking in Fort Lauderdale was a joke we were kept waiting for about two hours so when we got to the Marriott there was no time to go into Miami which we really wanted to do I for one would not go again I felt I had wasted 2000 pounds

Poor food

People raved about independence the ship was lovely

But the food in Romeo and Juliet left a lot to be desired

Totally put me off cruising as where do you go when you've paid all that money and can't eat the food (chicken undercooked shaves steak big thick lumps couldn't cut let alone chew

It was a expensive experience the cabin was excellent had booked junior suite

Staff good entertainment was out of this world as was the ice show but it was spoils by poor food and I was not the only one to complain but nobody was interested

The disembarking in Fort Lauderdale was a joke we were kept waiting for about two hours so when we got to the Marriott there was no time to go into Miami which we really wanted to do I for one would not go again I felt I had wasted 2000 pounds
