Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas Cruise Review

Review of my cruise on Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas cruise in the western Caribbean (Belize and Mexico.)

The Independence of the Seas is a gorgeous ship – and part of a fleet of “Freedom Class” ships (like the Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas.) We even docked next to the Liberty of the Seas and the ships look like twins.

I’ve taken about 5 or 6 cruises in my life and this one was great. I really enjoy cruising with my extended family as a group vacation. There are lots of opportunities for kids, teenagers, adults and grandparents.

Our cruisers ranged from 15 years old to 82 years old – and everyone enjoyed the cruise.

In this video, I talk about food, entertainment, shore excursions, tenders, Belize City, Cozumel and my general impressions of Royal Caribbean and the Independence of the Seas.

This was our first cruise with the family and extended family from across the globe.  What an enormous ship.  If you’ve ever thought you will feel claustrophobic, get that out of your mind.  You will have the party of your lifetime.  We had a Huge category K stateroom 9553. Swimming with dolphins in Cozumel was a once in a lifetime experience.  More than enough to do. From shows to arcades, to eating.  We both took the drinks package. Only do this if you constantly drink cocktails.  Else just charge to the room.  Excursions are extremely well organised, but be aware to take a waterproof camera along especially if snorkelling with the turtles.  With the dolphin excursion you cannot take close up pictures and they will charge you from $40 a picture.  Flowrider is a must,  daily shows in Alahambra theatre were world class. Our dinner was fine-dining every night. Rock-climbing; putt-putt…entertainment has no end.  I will definitely consider Royal Caribbean again.
