  1. Anyone know where to obtain the list of available karaoke songs on Independence of the Seas, in advance? I've seen the catalogs on MSC and Carnival, and most were quite old songs, or ones I've never heard of at all. Would like to see the choices on Independence ahead of time, if possible.
  2. Hi All, We are sailing Independence Thanksgiving cruise. It is our 11th cruise so we are not new to RCCL. However, I cannot see where to book reservations for Grease. Has something changed? Is the show off that week? I actually do not see a tab for "Entertainment" at all. Only thing different this cruise is that I booked through Travel Agent vs RCCL website this time. Thanks for any help.
  3. We will have a party of 6 in a panoramic ocean view suite on our Indy booking this July, including two teenage boys and two teenage girls. From what I can tell, there is only one shower in this suite. Our cabin is in the same area where the Spa and Gym are located and I understand there are showers located in that area. With so many of us in one suite, and with only one shower, will they let us use the showers in the gym/spa area?
  4. Has anyone recently been on Indy with Unlimited Dining Package and might have some feedback to share? It's $95pp for our 4 night sailing in December and I'm considering it. This will be our first time sailing her. I was a bit underwhelmed with Chops the last time I was on Oasis so I'm waffling between specialty dining and MDR.
  5. Is it isolated from sound well? I understand it’s in between the atrium and the lido deck quite equally. We’re also in a corner aft so hopefully no sex noises through the thin walls, far away from most cabins.
  6. Sorry... I'm sure this has been asked many times. New to RC. I was able to make MyTime dining reservations for Independence for May but can't make for shows... do these show up closer to sailing? and if so when? or are reservations not needed on Independence? thanks so much!
  7. It has been a few years so help me please. Husband wanted a February get away so we booked on the Independence for Feb 13 to 17th. I am looking at the forum and can't find any threads on that ship. i love reading everything and getting excited. Also there were no suites left (yes I called C&A to book and see if there were any being held) so we booked a balcony on the hump. We are mere Emeralds so i was wondering if any one thinks the new key program is any good. price aside I am wondering about seats for the shows as it is Presidents day weekend and i know there will be plenty of other teaching staff as well as families with kids that are on break. What are the chances of the deluxe drink package going on sale...hubby drinks plenty I drink rarely looking to get a deluxe and a refresh. How about a message , book ahead or wait? And lastly pray we don't get snow I really want to go on this cruise!!!!!
  8. We sail on Indy on Saturday Canary Cruise from Southampton, its been a long while since we have been on RCI can you help me with a few questions Is there a kettle and tea making facilities in the stateroom. How many formal nights will there be (12 night cruise). How many wear DJ's don't want to look out of place when i wear mine! What complimentary shower gel and shampoo etc is provided What sockets are provided in stateroom. Are most night in dining room casual dress code i assume chinos or smart jeans are ok, and smart polo shirts are ok with no motifs. Is it very easy to swap when on board from early dinning to any time dinning. Do you have to book climbing wall, flow rider and laser game. We have a prepaid drinks package, can you advise how the wine and port works with dinner. How does the coffee and cake work work with the drinks package. On boarding day are there any dinning rooms open for lunch or do we have to use the 'Bun Fight Area'. Do they have late buffet in the casinos like NCL Wheres the best place for a snack late at night like fish and chips or spicy chicken wings like NCL. Can you self disembark on arrival back at Southampton. Do they do a 'Mudslide Cocktail' at the bars. Thanks in advance
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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! 😀
  14. 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 😀
  15. 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!
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. 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. ☀️🌴
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Hi I was wonder if ID still has a free sauna/ steamer and gym thank you
  23. This is our first cruise on one of the biggie ships and the first with our grandchildren There are so many activities and I know that not everything is included ( I wonder if I can keep the arcade a sectet ? ) Is the lazer tag a charge ? How about the trampoline? This is the first time we have had to worry about kids, it is usually all about which drink card to get lol Thanks for your help Kris
  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/
  25. 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.
