ABOUT INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS

Ship Amenities

The H20 Zone is one of the ship’s most popular areas, positioned right in the heart of the pool deck. This family-friendly zone includes spray fountains, water jets, and water cannons to play with by day, and it transforms into a sculpture garden by night. There’s also a sports pool and main pool for relaxing, playing games or just swimming laps. For dryer activities, the ship’s Royal Promenade offers a central location for shopping and dining alike. From a traditional English pub called the Dog & Badger to a Book Nook and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop, there’s plenty of options here to keep you entertained. The Promenade is also the place to be for street parties, including a circus parade complete with stilt walkers! Are you in the mood for something a bit cooler? Head to the regulation-sized ice-skating rink for live shows and interactive fun. Additional facilities include a library, concierge lounge and business conference centre.

Cabin Amenities

You’ll find accommodation in a range of different sizes, locations and price grades to choose from. At the larger end there’s a Presidential Family Suite, hosting up to 14 guests. For those on a tighter budget or with smaller groups, there are two-person interior cabins with twin beds. All include hotel-standard amenities including private bathrooms, hairdryers, secure safes and minibars.

Dining Options

The main dining room on deck is decorated with a fun Shakespeare theme, featuring three floors of elegantly laid tables in the King Lear, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth levels. All floors feature the same menu, showcasing regional and continental favourites. If you fancy something a bit different, you’ll have plenty of alternative dining venues to choose from starting with the buffet-style service at Windjammer Café. One section of Windjammer transforms at times to the Jade Restaurant, dishing up Asian cuisine in a casual setting. You can also enjoy Italian food at Giovanni’s Table and surf n’ turf favourites at Chops Grille. Johnny Rockets is particularly popular with families, serving hot dogs and burgers in a retro diner complete with mini jukeboxes at each table. And naturally, there are plenty of casual venues for light bites, specialty coffees and ice creams onboard Independence of the Seas.

Entertainment

From jazz performances in the Olive or Twist jazz lounge to a glitzy Casino Royale, there’s no shortage of venues to unwind in the evenings. The Raven Disco and Boleros Lounge are lively venues for dancing and merriment, or you could listen to experts tickle the ivories at the Schooner Bar piano lounge. For impressive, professional musical shows head to the Alhambra Theatre. With 1,350 seats and a hydraulic orchestra pit, it’s well-equipped to provide a stunning song and dance experience. Family-friendly options include the ship’s ice-skating rink, which hosts an action-packed Ice Follies show.

Sports and Wellness

Yoga, aerobics or weight lifting? No matter what your preferred workout might look like, you’ll be able to keep up with your training on Independence of the Seas. The Independence Day Spa includes several relaxation areas, exercise classes and a full-size gym. Naturally, you’ll also be able to indulge in the beauty or body treatment of your choice, or sweat out toxins in the steam rooms and saunas.
