A decent itinerary on a beautiful ship with plenty to do. This cruise offered a nice mix of activities and relaxation. As a group, we were able to interact regularly and also do our own thing as desired.
A great variety of activities are offered on the Independence of the Seas. I was pleased that the fitness center was large enough to always have available equipment for use. The pools were often crowded, as were the Solarium hot tubs. We finally got to enjoy them when most of the ship was vacant during the stop in CocoCay.
We saw Grease, Freeze Frame ice show, and the Farewell Show. I appreciate that all the shows were, to some degree, interactive with the audience. The shows were worth attending, but not without flaws.
Spacious, clean, and quiet.
Under construction and overcrowded.
We had dinner the night before embarking at Pizza Craft Artisan Pizza in Fort Lauderdale. What a great place with a quaint speakeasy type bar attached. I highly recommend making a stop here if you have time before your cruise out of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
