Sail Date: May 2022
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

So 4 night on Independence of the Seas. Bought deluxe drink package prior to sailing. The amount of missing brands and types of missing or reduced liqueur was amazing. Johnny walker(any) nope. Crown Royal, Nope Tanqueray Nope. Malibu Rum Nope, Miscatto with dinner nope. and for you pool junkies no buckets of beer.

There were just to missing liqueurs to list. the issue ? depends on who you ask and never the same answer. Example: on the Johnny Walker, Crown Royal issue, both were for sale in the shops but none at any Bar. No reason given for bucket of beer issue. The Drink Package with tips comes out on average to over $90.00 per day. All Soda that comes with the drink package is now fountain.(Tip: they will give you a can if you ask,and only if you have a drink package.)

The Cruise itself was great, Food was very good, but selections have been reduced. Ship was in very good shape. On and off was painless. Crew as always busting butt. Cabin was clean and well taken care of. Coco Cay was a lot of fun, only ship in on day of visit,so lots of room!!!
