Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin: Interior

We have travelled on 'Independence' before and always found it to be a lovely experience all round. Third time this year. Staff excellent, food superb, and lovely rooms. Our attentive waiters were as always 100% ! Cabin steward delightful and diligent. My husband has certain health issues including bad sight but everyone was helpful and polite. Especially in the dining room and in the lifts.The food just gets better and better and we made new friends at our evening table who we are still keeping in touch with.Our last formal night's photo shoot was taken with all of us and many thanks to the head waiter who arranged for us to 'kidnap' our two favorite waiters Alan and Mark for 10 minutes! I do hope to be travelling with RC in the future. we have sailed the Mediterranean twice before but would maybe like to try different places next time. Thank you again RC !

Cabin 6V

Our cabin overlooked the internal promenade so not sure if I have typed in the correct category !!! Very comfortable though!
