ROYAL CARIBBEAN INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS - ACCOMODATIONS

ROYAL CARIBBEAN
INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS

Thanks to a credit card company, we were able to take a 12 Day cruise using points.  Our airfare and cruise were free.  We boarded the Independence of the Seas in Southampton, England.  Security and check in at the port were very smooth. After a short wait in the waiting area we were given the green light to board this 160,000 ton ship which is one of the largest cruise ships in the world.  The ship has a staff of over 1300 people.  The Promenade is the centerpiece of the ship.  A wide walkway down the middle of the ship that features dining, shopping, drinking and entertainment.  There is a Champagne Bar, Wine Bar, English Beer Pub, Coffee Bar, Pizza Parlor, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, Barber Shop and places to buy perfume, clothes, gifts, jewelry, alcohol, tobacco and most everything else you might need on a ship.  The ship is like a giant floating hotel.  There is a front desk, concierge and tour desk.  Our cabin was a port side balcony with a huge patio that allowed us to view the ocean and ports during the cruise.  We had a great cabin attendant named Mark who provided room cleaning at least twice per day.  This is a big ship.  Really big.  Takes a few days to figure your way around.
