  1. The cruise isn't showing up on my favourite cruise site either....the Seaxxxxxer site. That's where I go look to see what cabins are actually available. The site is only showing Independence cruises until April 10-15, 2021. Hope you can find another cruise you like.
  2. I had a B2B2B booked on Independence for January 2021. All three cruises ended up being chartered. Lost them all. And of course, other options have increased in price. mac_tlc
  3. Halloween night fell on formal night and that was pretty fun too. The ship, Independence was dressed up really nice. They spent all night decorating and on the morning of Hallowwen it looked really nice. A nice passenger parade throughout the promenade occurred. It was a fun night and big party after the parade. Enjoy it! Definitely take a costume.
  4. We have 2 extra Grandeur blocks. We will be on Symphony 2 and 9 Nov cruises. Anyone need a Grandeur and want to trade for either: Mariner, Freedom, Empress, Jewel, Serenade, Enchantment, Allure, Legend, Adventure, Liberty, Oasis, independence, Harmony or Anthem? Let me know and we can arrange to trade on the Symphony next month.
  5. I have never sailed on Independence before, can you tell me what kind of shows they put on and do you need reservations for them. On the Allure you needed reservations.
  6. As far as musicals go, Hairspray isn't that old. It first premiered in 2002 and RCI started performances of it in 2009. In terms of the "gap" between when a show premieres and when Royal first runs it, here's the spread: Cats (33 years - first premiered in 1981, first premiered on Oasis in 2014) Chicago (35 years - first premiered in 1975, first premiered on Allure in 2010) Grease (45 years - first premiered in 1971, first premiered on Harmony and Independence in 2016) Hairspray (7 years - first premiered in 2002, first premiered on Oasis in 2009) Mamma Mia! (15 years - first premiered in 1999, first premiered on Quantum in 2014) Saturday Night Fever (13 years - first premiered in 1998, first premiered on Liberty in 2011) We Will Rock You (13 years - first premiered in 2002, first premiered on Anthem in 2015
  7. When independence had her refit the ship lost the CL on deck 10 and was replaced with a Suite Lounge in the Viking Crown Lounge near the DL. D+ do not have access to the SL so if Freedom has the same amplification as Independence you only have access to the DL.
  8. Independence - Katie Turner goes on vacation on 8th October and the new AM will be Alex. Cheers! Joan
  9. Hi were going on a 3 night cruise on Independence of the seas at the end Aug looked on the app and can't see a showing of Grease, on there does that mean it won't be on those 3 days ? Thanks
  10. 56 to Adventure - Western Caribbean 212 to Radiance - Hawaii 427 to Allure - Eastern Caribbean 557 to Independence - probably going to be chartered.
  11. My fiancé and I are looking to book a JS Balcony room for our honeymoon and we have narrowed it down to 2 balconies. I thought we were going with 9638, but I just found that the piano from the suite above may be loud. Any insight on 9638 or 9264 would greatly be appreciated. Also, do all JS Balconies have 2 lounger chairs? thank you, thank you 😀
  12. Follow along with me, on this, our first trip across the pond. For the next two weeks, plus, we are getting our first exposure to England, Spain, France, and Italy. It it is a good sign when you look out your window, and see your ship waiting for you.
  13. Then RC took Independence away for 2020 sailings from Southampton after taking bookings.
  14. Hi, please can anyone tell me what storage there is for the 3rd and 4th person in the lounge ? I can see pictures of the wardrobe and drawers for the master bedroom but I can’t find any details of what storage there is in the lounge area. Just thinking i may have to bring a clothes rail for my kids. On other sailings there has always been a double wardrobe in the lounge but I can’t see anything from the pictures on line. Also so does anyone know of what the benefits are staying in this suite or are they the same as staying in other suites. If if anyone has any pictures I’d really appreciate it. Many thanks
  15. Hi Bob. We have just got on Explorer and to answer a question off a few weeks ago. Our D+ keys off Independence in May did not open the DL door. Graham
  16. A TA said Allure although Independence is more suited to UK sailings.
  17. How do you know this? I would assume that Freedom would follow in the footsteps of Independence and Liberty. Izumi on Independence is on Deck 4 by the Schooner Bar. Liberty doesn't have Izumi - its Sabor is in the same location as Independence's Izumi.

  20. Hi were going on a 3 night on Independence of the seas end August from Southampton just a couple of ? Do they have a kettle? Do they have tea bags , coffee in rooms? What plug sockets do the have is it US ones? Our first time on RC. Thanks
  21. My fiancé and I have decided for our honeymoon for the Independence of the Seas Oceanview Balcony. I am really nervous to book because I want to make sure that room 8564 has sliding balcony doors for the view. I searched and searched online and can’t find the answer. If anyone has stayed in this room and can answer and/or has any insight we would greatly appreciate it!!!! Thank you! 😀
  22. Week of November 11, 2019: Anthem and probably Independence too.
  23. Should be available between November 2019 and April 2020. As for ships, nothing confirmed yet but looking at Anthem and Independence.
  24. I am sailing this weekend on Independence of the seas to celebrate my dad's 70's birthday with my family of 4 incl 2 small kids, my parents and a brother, total 7 of us. We had cruises with other cruise lines but all first time with RCCL. I have done some research but couldn't find all the answers and would like to get some help. Your comments on any of following will be greatly appreciated! 1. We are staying in suites and just got a message from concierge as a reply of my question, if there are any specific nights that MDR is recommended over specialty restaurants (because my parents are not huge fan of buffet and probably will go either specialty restaurant of MDR for dinners). The concierge recommended MDR on formal nights which is 3, 10 and 13th day. I was wondering if there is any difference in themes or ambiance on each formal nights or is it pretty much the same? Any other nights do you recommend to stay in MDR ? 2. I am trying to arrange celebration dinner in one of the specialty restaurants or on chef's table (I guess it is table in MDR?) Which one would you recommend and do they do birthday cakes or anything for the special occasion? 3. Concierge said that there are reserved seats in the shows for suite and diamond/pinnacle guests and advised to arrive 15mins before the show. Is it usually competitive or easy to get a seat? I wonder how early I should arrive to get a seat safely. I guess it is full ship on this sailing as in the middle of school hols. 4. Concierge confirmed that there are no bed guards available. I am planning to put my 2 kids(4 and 8) in the king bed to share or one each in single beds, but little bit worried about 4 yrs old as I will be sleeping in different room. I have fordable bed guard at home, would it be worth to carry it? Thank you!
  25. Hi, I am wondering if anyone out there has used the Key program on the Independence. We are considering it for our cruise next year, and I can’t seem to find anywhere if it includes special hours just for the rock climbing wall and flow rider, or if there are any special times for the water slides or other special features on the ship as well. Thanks very much!
