Independence of the Seas Cruise Review by J013628
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom
Anyways..This cruise happened during college spring break. We will not be making that mistake again. The college kids were fine. They stuck to their crowd and on the whole very respectful. One kid started swearing around my 8 year old and his friends hit him stop. My main problem with this cruise was service. Being told that there are no apple slices for dinner in the main dining room for my son as a different option instead of french fries was weird. Basically that meant no one in the kitchen was able to cut up apples. Also it took forever for someone to come around and refill my husband's glass of water. Its little things like that, that bug us. But the food was great just the service was a little lacking.
One thing that also sucked on this cruise was that someone needed medical attention so we had to go back to Florida. Which had us miss Labadee. The reason this sucked was we had 3 days at sea stuck with spring breakers taking over the pool area. I also really wanted to get the private golf cart over to the suite beach and have the special suite lunch. But also my husband really wanted to do the zip line. But since we are loyal to Royal I know he will get another shot at it. We know a cruise is what you make of it, well really any vacation is what you make of it.
We could have totally ruined our cruise from the get go when we hit the line getting on the cruise but we didn't. We had fun playing trivia and my son had a ball in the arcade. I also had fun in the casino. I broke even. We throughly enjoyed our room. We might not do a grand suite again as we found a junior suite is just fine. We didn't feel the benefits we got were enough for us to spend the extra money again which I thought was sad and a lost opportunity for Royal Caribbean get more money from us.
