Major Disappointment

Review for Independence of the Seas to Norwegian Fjords

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

For my wife and I this was our very first cruise. We went to the Norwegian Fjords aboard Independence of the Seas. We booked this cruise as we were told that it was a great trip and the Independence had, according to the Royal Caribbean brochure "been given a makeover from stern to bow". This is not true, parts of the ship may have been changed, BUT our room certainly had not seen any makeover. I ...

We sailed onboard the ship for our 1st ever cruise on the Norway itinerary. We are in our early forties and always wanted to see the Fjords. Upon arrival at Southampton, the whole embarking process was flawless - having travelled by air very frequently over the years, we found the whole process easy, pleasant and was on the ship within 30 minutes of getting out of our car next to the ...

We booked this cruise after seeing advertisements on board our last cruise which shown the ship sailing through all these fjords which looked fantastic. Highlight of the whole cruise was the port of Geranger which was fantastic to sail through to and really nice scenery once there. Regarding the ship, having cruised on this ship many times we thought the recent refurbishments were catering ...

First time on Indi -We chose the cruise for Norway Fjords Itinerary and were expecting a cold experience which we got ! however no struggle to get a sun bed ! ,the City ports were grey and disappointing so make sure you organise your excursions before you go or you will just wander around towns drinking coffee in Starbucks . On a positive note I found all crew very helpful and friendly and I ...

First Time Cruiser

My wife and I chose this cruise as our honeymoon. She has sailed with Royal Caribbean before, but I never had. This was my first experience cruising and overall we both had a great time. Specifically we wanted to go to Norway, somewhere neither of us had visited before, and we both felt seeing five locations in Norway, from the sea, and cruising through some of the longest and most beautiful ...

Returned to RCL after a few years and still enjoyed it. The one change was a charge for room service, which we didn't need, although breakfast in the cabin is brought for free. The food we had, was great. Only had 2 shore excursions - one was late starting but we eventually did see everything we were promised; I got the impression that maybe the guide wasn't made aware of what we had been ...
