  1. We are set to sail independence of the seas on June 1 for 4 nights. We have 3 cabins. With the extension of the CDC’s quarantine of cruise ships for “at least 100 days” do we stand a chance of sailing? When do you think RCL will cancel ?
  2. Hi all! Planning our first family cruise and we booked cabin 1100, one of the new rooms from what I’ve gathered. It appears that this single cabin exists only on the independence, but I could be wrong. Has anyone stayed in this 1L Panoramic Ocean View room? The pictures I’ve seen online are definitely incorrect and the representative at Royal Caribbean said the room is larger than the 175 feet listed but she had no idea the actual size. We sail in December so I’ll be sure to take pictures to share!
  3. Hi Royal Caribbean Experts, We will be on Independence of the Seas this summer and want to know what the bathroom amentities will be. Are the shampoo/conditioner/bath gel "on the shower wall"? Are there other products other than possibly soap provided? Thanks for all your assistance.
  4. Wow... I booked Independence of the Seas for Sept 2020 in Europe and they canceled the cruise (they moved Independence to the Caribbean instead). They gave us a really nice cruise credit (about 25% of what our cruise was supposed to cost). We re-booked for a different ship (Jewel) in Oct 2020 instead. I'm pretty happy, cause the new cruise was cheaper by a bit AND we got a nice credit.
  5. Does anyone have a recent cruise compass for a 5 day cruise that they can post...also what night is lobster night on a 5 night cruise on Independence..thanks
  6. If anybody is interested, I am attaching the 5 night (12/10/18) Independence compasses. It is the Costa Maya, Cozumel itinerary. Indy.pdf

  8. Hi, I would like to know how the Sauna and Steam Room set-up on the Independence. When we were on her last time, these were accessible free of charge. Is this still the case after the re-fit or have they gone the the system on the Oasis Class ships where you have to pay? Thanks for the information.
  9. Does anyone who has been on the Independence recently know what time the main seating dining starts and what time does the Diamond lounge open for drinks...thanks....
  10. Does anyone know if the Independence has a by one get one Chops deal on the first night of a 5 night Caribbean cruise??? We sail 4/29/19...thanks..we are Pinnacle if that makes any difference.....
  11. Hi, We are looking to book on the Independence of the Seas. We were wondering if the hump cabins have connecting balconies (Cabins 6640 and 6638) We called RCL but they didn't know. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
  12. During the May 2018 refurbishment of Independence of the Seas 6 staterooms were added to Deck 11. These were carved out from part of the Spa area I believe. I am booking junior suite 1106 and would like information about this cabin or the other two junior suites beside it and cannot find anything about it online. Has anybody here been in one of these deck 11 junior suites or seen any info or videos online about them?
  13. The deluxe drink package has now dropped from £47 to £38....big saving.
  14. Hi everyone! I am looking for some input on your FAVORITE Junior Suites or Grand Suites on Independence of the Seas? My BF (C&A Diamond status) and I are looking to plan a short 4 night cruise (destination TBD) in late 2020 or early 2021. Balcony is really what is most important to us as we enjoy spending out there relaxing, reading, drinking our morning coffee or pre-dinner cocktails. Trying to decide on which Junior Suite or Grand Suite might work best for us. We plan on booking pretty far out and from what I am seeing, the cost difference between the JS and GS isn't that obscene on some of the itineraries. For a 4 night cruise, some of the perks of the GS (cocktail hour) may help minimize our bar tab -vs- if we chose going the JS route. We don't do a drink package, but do enjoy our cocktails! Our preferences: Cabin location; AFT/MID/FWD are all up for consideration Balcony SIZE & some SUN is priority Unobstructed view is preferred We typically take the STAIRS to move between floors (our rationalization for dessert!) No physical limitations, so proximity to elevators is NOT a concern I've seen other threads for other ships with folks weighing in on their favorite JS and GS suites, so I am looking for help here narrowing down room selections. Would appreciate any insight and also any photos of your balconies on Independence to help with our booking decisions! Thanks in advance 🙂
  15. My last cruise was Jan 25 on Symphony and I have a short one I was looking forward to on 5/18 on Independence. So this really means no May cruising. Bummer
  16. I booked it a year ago so I can't really remember. I had booked 3 rooms for a big family holiday on Independence OTS for 2020 then about 4 weeks later and the day before we were about to sail on another cruise in 2019 we were told our family cruise for 2020 had been cancelled because Independence was not going to be in Europe in 2020. The night before our 2019 cruise I was in our pre-cruise hotel trying to re-arrange the 2020 cruise details with my family so that I could re-book a 2020 cruise when we got onboard for our ship. To say that it was a rush is an understatement. Unfortunately future cruises onboard told us that all the bonuses we had got when we booked for Independence were now lost and that they wouldn't be able to offer the same on our re-booked cruise (that was OBC, Drinks package and free grats). Luckily we did get the drinks package. I would have thought that as we booked on the ship that we would have got OBC? That's usually part of the deal isn't it?
  17. Can anyone who has been on Indy lately tell me if the water slides are appropriate for children (5 1/2 years old) or are they too fast? Thanks!
  18. Anybody know who the Concierge will be in the Suites lounge on D14. When we were on last year it was Mihee. She was good and welcomed us with a big hug as she had taken over from Jackie.
  19. DW and I have cruised twice, both times on Anthem in the past 18 months. We're sailing on Independence of the Seas in February 2019 and I have a few questions: Our set-sail time on both of the Anthem cruises was 3:00 pm, and the cabins were ready by 1:00. Our cruise on Independence has a set-sail time of 4:30 pm. Does this mean the cabins won't be ready until 2:30, or will they be ready earlier? Will the Royal IQ app work on Independence? Is there a charge for the Escape room? Thank you in advance to anyone who can provide any answers.
  20. Hi, I know there cabins were added during drydock...I am curious as to the balconies...Are they open air (adventure) waist high glass or is there a glass partition that goes all the way up (Independence)... TiA

  22. Anyone know what make of pods the machines take in the suites on the Brilliance and Independence so I can take my own, I drink a lot of coffee. I've tried and tried but can't find the information anywhere, thanks.
  23. Just got an e-mail from RCCL. Seems our USCG wants to conduct a "routine inspection" . They adjusted boarding time to 12:00 to 3:30. Not sure what it was before. They asked that people arrive no earlier than noon now. We were reserved to check in 11:30 before. Do we just up that a half hour?
