The crew was very nice and welcoming. Embarkation was lightning fast. It was the start of spring break so there were a few more college kids than normal which made the pool area busier than other cruises. The pool bar and drink service was very slow. The Windjammer food was not great during lunch time, but breakfast was good. The breakfast sandwiches in the Pizza restaurant were the best. Dinner in the main dining room was hit or miss. Grease was great and Mo5ac was fantastic. The ice show is a must see! There was not as much live music on this cruise as previous ones. There seemed to be less activities compared to previous RC cruises, but this was our first cruise under 7 days on RC. The ship still is in great shape and clean. You would never guess it’s 11 years old. We are cruising on the Independence again in 10 months with our whole family and are excited to go back on the Independence.

Beautiful Ship
