  3. Independence of the Seas
We travelled as a party of 4 for the first time with Royal Caribbean just before Christmas. It was a wonderful experience, from check in to departure our every need was met. We were very spoilt by all the lovely staff especially our Cabin steward Agus who kept our cabin spotless and our waiters Ivan and Angel who kept us well fed .

The food was lovely whether you ate in the buffet restaurant or main dining.

The evening shows were fabulous especially Kev the Armenian he made us laugh until we cried.

There was something for everyone the gym was excellent very well equipped (i undertook a little light exercise, well i was on holiday). It was lovely to have all the little cafes and shops on the Royal Promenade you. would never know you were at sea

Unfortunately the weather was not great travelling to the Canaries so was unable to make use of the beautiful pools and Jacuzzi on top deck (well it was late November early December)

I would definitely travel again with Royal Caribbean, and i would urge anyone to try it once but be careful it's addictive...

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin E1 6646
The room was lovely it had everything you could want on a holiday a small seating area inside and a lovely balcony. We were opposite the lifts but we never heard anything, we had children in the next cabin and never knew this until we were in Gran Canaria and they were on the balcony so the rooms are well insulated.
