We wanted to try the Independence after the refit. This was a 5 days cruise and we were very happy that the weather was absolutely spectacular. The ship is gorgeous and the service was excellent. The food in the main dinninig room was pretty good and the Windjammer was very good. Dissapointed that we could not get anybody in the Promenade Cafe to brew a strong espresso, like we have in other ships. The cast of Grease is excellent and had presentations other than the play, which was an added bonus. We liked the latin band Mirage, they were good and played a good variety of songs. There were some large theme groups and that made for some of the venues reserved for private functions, which always leaves the general population out, for example, the first sea day, the Dance Fitness class was cancelled due to rain, they were not able to bring it inside because of the venues occupied by private functions. All in all it was 5 beautiful days in a beautiful ship. We will sail the Independence again in a heart beat.
