Independence of the Seas

 

Overview: This ship’s ‘wow’ factor is its connection with water in its dramatic water theme park on the pool deck – recommended for families with children. There is, however, something for everyone.

One Good Holiday. by Cochrane, Langton matravers

One Good Holiday.

Overall Rating: 4

1995 views

Destination:
Mediterranean

Reviewed By: on
The service from the staff/crew, the food, the cleanliness of the ship, the itinerary, the entertainment were all fantastic but, for us, the ship was a bit too big and, in places, a bit too noisy eg the music around the swimming pool area and in the Windjammer Restaurant. There was a lack of quiet lounge areas and the library was small. Despite these very few slight annoyances we would book again, especially if we were taking all of the family/grandchildren. The children's facilites and clubs looked fantastic, there were large tables in the restaurants that could seat 10 people and the baby-sitting services sounded second to none.

Sailed: November, 2011
Age: 56-65
Cabin: Inside
Occasion: Annual/regular holiday

Quality of Food
We mostly ate in the restaurants where you are served, rather than in self-service. The salads and fresh fruits selection were a healthy options, to avoid piling on the pounds.

Our stateroom steward, Jo. He was first class, and had only just joined the ship - his first cruise ever. He folded the towels every evening into some fantastic animal shapes
