Independence of the Seas Overview

Independence of the Seas is based year round at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, offering mostly 4- and 5-night cruises to the Western Caribbean, each including two sea days. The shorter cruise visits the popular Mexican water resort island of Cozumel, which also offers the adventurer Mayan archaeological sites. The longer cruise calls also at George Town in the Cayman Islands, that again offers water sports along with on shore tourist sites. This is a family ship that entered service in 2008, was recently refitted in 2018, and at 154,407 GT she carries 3634 passengers. The ship is very much the destination and has so many family attractions one hardly has to go ashore.


Staterooms come in four main categories, with variations based on guests’ needs: Suites/Deluxe Staterooms, Balcony Staterooms, Ocean View Staterooms and Interior Staterooms. When selecting accommodation consider the view, the level of privacy, and location near to or far from activity areas. All staterooms come with private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, interactive TV and phone. Many cabins are family-friendly with up to four additional bunk beds, and interconnecting rooms. Promenade staterooms overlook the interior Royal Promenade, and some accommodate up to six people. There are no single cabins, and many are wheelchair-accessible. In-cabin service and dining is available 24-hours.

Food and Dining

For the Main Dining Room, spread over three decks, select from three dining choices before cruising: fixed seating at the same table nightly, at either early or late sitting; open-seated My Time Dining (with pre-paid gratuities) at a flexible time; and early sitting My Family Time Dining that allows children aged 3 to 11 years to leave for their Adventure Ocean kids club. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise. Evening dress is casual or smart casual. Expect one to three formal evenings in the Main Dining Room during your cruise. There are seven complimentary eating options, including Windjammers Café, Jade Sushi and Asian cuisine, Sorrento’s Pizza, Café Promenade for coffee, pastries/snacks, and room service.


Signature features to entertain you include: Broadway-style productions in the Main Theatre; Studio B’s ice shows, comedy, game shows, onboard parties, and cooking demonstrations (and when the rink is not being used, skate for free); giant outdoor LED screen; and gaming in Casino Royale. Live music features around the pool, in the main dining room, and in many lounges, bars and specialty venues. There are always parties and parades to join. Alternatively, just stroll around the Royal Promenade and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café.
