  3. Hi all, We will be sailing in March on Independence of the Seas in cabin 9640 which is the center hump balcony cabin on the port side. Anyone have any thoughts they can share about this cabin? I think Liberty and Freedom of the Seas are the same class of ship for anyone who has sailed on her sister ships. Thanks!
  4. Then RC took Independence away for 2020 sailings from Southampton after taking bookings.
  5. 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
  6. Hi Everyone I am wondering about the Diamond Lounge. Sailing in April 2020 on Independence and will have just turned Diamond. Is there food ? Drinks ? Open all day ? Thanks for any information or comments. ☀️🌴
  7. onboard IOS now and before sailing I struggled to find pictures of the new suite lounge so here are some!
  8. A TA said Allure although Independence is more suited to UK sailings.
  9. Week of November 11, 2019: Anthem and probably Independence too.
  10. Should be available between November 2019 and April 2020. As for ships, nothing confirmed yet but looking at Anthem and Independence.
  11. Quick question. We’re sailing at the end of Nov and wonder if anyone knows what time the hot tubs close in the Solarium (if they close at all) ? We know they definitely close down the pools at a certain time but not sure about the hot tubs. Thank you!
  12. Hello, I have sailed on the smallest Empress , and the larger Independence. I am considering the mega large Oasis. Has anyone sailed on both large and small ships to be able to judge if the larger ships are more crowded? Or, is the Oasis’s square footage proportionately larger to handle the much larger number of passengers ? My experience was Independence didn't feel more crowded vs. Empress. Any advice would be greatly appreciated !
  13. 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!
  14. I have a dilemma and wonder if anyone has any advise. I am looking at Indi cruise ex Southampton on the 26September. This is an extra sneaky cruise, have really used up our quota for this year so would be doing this on the cheap. The UK website still shows over 200 rooms available. Do you think the price may come down after final payment with this large number of capacity? Final payment here in UK is at 57 days out which would be July 31st. The dilemma is that I have GBP200 of Tesco vouchers to use which would knock GBP600 off the price but the terms and conditions to use Tesco vouchers state that the cruise has to be booked and paid for no later than 56 days before departure, so a very small window Any advise from anyone who has done late bookings after final payment when there is still a lot of rooms available? We were going to do a land touring holiday in Europe, but if I can get the price down hubby may go for another cruise thanks for any advise Sue
  15. We're just doing a 3 night cruise in August our first in RC, really like to do the Escape room can it be booked before or once on the ship? We have booked the Sky pad is that all that can be booked ? Want to try and get most things done as will everyone else. How does it work once onboard? Also the Laser what's your experience of doing these t things Thanks
  16. I agree. Like you we saw large queues at GS on Independence in May stopping their autogratuities.
  17. I understand these 2 BR grand suites located in the aft of the ship were previously one larger suite (Presidential maybe)? My question is because these suites are essentially one very large suite split into two large suites, is there an advantage of one side vs the other? From what I can tell on Youtube, aside from the differences in the layout (for example, where the master is located), the two cabins on each aft seem similar. The only exception is looking at the balconies for 6416 and 6716 where the port side cabin has a bar, and the starboard side cabin has a hottub left over from the one huge balcony for when the two were one large cabin.
  18. We experienced the same on Independence in May.
  19. Yes, we are already booked on Independence for 10/12/2020 and now my wife wants to do this one prior. I'm not terribly keen on the idea, but if she can find a friend, I'll just meet her on Monday.
  20. https://help.royalcaribbean.co.uk/hc/en-gb/sections/360004499552-Independence-of-the-Seas-2020-changes-to-sailings I've just spotted this on one of the UK TA sites and have found this on the RCL UK site. Looks like only Anthem will be sailing from Southampton next year. Sorry if it's already been posted but couldn't see anything on here.
  21. If you are asking if you can book for 1, pay full price to get the time you want and then use the BOGO discount the answer is yes. Might be easier to book and pay for 2. We have paid full price to get the day and time we want and then once onboard we have used the package for the reservation and received a full refund in the form of a fully refundable OBC for the original cost. This was done as soon as we boarded. Our Anniversary falls in the middle of the TA'S we take in Nov. and my wife always wants a specialty dinner on that night. That being said we have never had a problem getting the days or times we asked for, we do eat at 8:30 or later. Situation could change ship to ship but we have done this on Allure, Symphony and Independence. happy cruising
  22. we are going on Indy at the end of August. I have some questions if anyone knows the answers.  Do they take take away your belongings from the suite deck loungers if you’re in the pool more than 30 mins or away for more than 30 mins ? I know they do with the normal chairs round the pool. is ice cream self serve or is someone there making them ? royal suite - does anyone know how many the hot tub on the balcony will hold ? and also is the sofa bed comfy ? My kids will be sleeping in there. It looks grubby in some pictures and not in others. Any ideas ?  Does anyone have the past 2019 cruise compass for Southampton to Spain and France ? Many thanks
  23. Thanks for the heads up. Just got a $200 price drop on my 11/14/20 Independence which was already cheap to start.
  24. I didn't see this topic posted, so apologize if this is a duplicate. I received an email this morning letting me know that the cruise I'm booked on has now been chartered. We were on the January 16th sailing to Grand Cayman and Coco Cay out of Fort Lauderdale. They did give me options, but nothing with Coco Cay, which is why we booked that one in the first place. Still, we chose one of the options that was price protected and will stop in Grand Cayman and Cozumel instead. Bummer, but we had such a deal and not a lot of flexibility on dates, and Cozumel is fun. I did a quick search and here's what the charter is. http://www.capitaljazz.com/supercruise/2021/
