Independence of the Seas image
Ok - so we had bad weather too - we had hurricane force winds on the way across the Bay of Biscay which meant that we missed going to Madiera (a real nuisance but you can do nothing about the weather) - but.... and it's a big one - the staff were just wonderful, Earl looked after our stateroom so well and the towel animals were a joy to look forward to each evening.
Moreover - the food was delicious, the dining rooms elegent, the staff helpful and pleasant to spend time with and the shows in the evening were professional, interesting and such fun!

Ok - so it was rough (but I've discovered I don;t suffer from sea-sickness!!) and there were far too many unruly children on board who should have been in school (half term was the week before people!) and yes - the public area's are a little on the small size for a cruise which requires time spent inside - but....please - a bit of positive thinking never went amiss.
The weather turned out real nice as we got further south and the trips off the ship were interesting and I got a tan!
The whole trip was relaxing and enjoyable - thank you Royal Caribbean!

positives of cruise Positives of Cruise
The shows at night were excellent and the entertainment staff put on two great nights - pock Britannia and 1980's night - such fun!
The towel animals!
The elegance - the marble and glass stairs - the sunshine

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
The library needs to be bigger and away from the stairs so it's QUIET!
The public area's are smaller than required when you have to spend time indoors because of the weather.
I know you make money through the drinks we buy - but hey - they are VERY EXPENSIVE and so I drank less than I would do so in the end spent less! - look again at the economics of it please.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
