  1. I’m looking ahead to 2022 and researching cruises for me, my husband and my son that will be 11 then. We are looking to go away in February. Because we will be pulling our son out of school we are looking at a shorter cruise so we can also have a day or two in Florida pre cruise. What are people’s opinion on a 4 night on independence or a 5 night or Mariner?
  2. I prefer to make my coffee as a double espresso with a cappuccino added from the DL or CL machine. The coffee at Seattle's best next to Promenade cafe on Independence was not very nice. I don't mind paying for a Starbucks coffee on Harmony.
  3. In that case maybe go with the Independence and spend an extra day in Florida?
  4. I haven’t made up my mind on what type of cabin. But it will probably be a balcony cabin. Although I noticed it is letting me pick a family promenade view on independence, which would be great for the space. We have been in a family ocean view on Brilliance and we were amazed at the space. The kids love the bunk area.
  5. The Independence is a beautiful ship (even after "renovation"). I would recommend it any time. However, a cruise shorter than 7 days is not a "real" cruise. As a short getaway - yes, it's OK if the itinerary includes Coco Cay. But... February is too early for Coco Cay.... For February you'll need something like Sent-Thomas, Grand Cayman, Labadee. Without these stops the cruise will not worth money. Happy cruising!
  6. I agree with these posts but it sounds like they don’t coincide with the OP’s plans. Plus there are still plenty of things to do on both Mariner and Independence.
  7. Good Morning everyone, I have my first Royal cruise booked for September of this year on Independence of the Seas. A few weeks ago I saw the Deluxe Beverage Package was $45 a day. I stupidly didn't jump on it then and now it's $65 a day. If I book now and then the price drops, can I call and rebook with the new price or am I locked in? Also, does anyone have experience with The Key on Independence? Seems pretty interesting especially since I was planning to get Voom anyways. If anyone has any tips or tricks, drink recommendations, etc for Independence or what you wished you would have known for your first Royal cruise, I'd love to hear that as well. I feel like I'm really going to like Royal and have my eye on a few cruises next year too. Thanks!
  8. We did a three night cruise on Mariner a little over a year ago. She is a great ship and has lots of great stuff for kids. I haven't been on Independence but Freedom class and Voyageur class are very similar in layout.
  9. Both are great. Similar ships. Independence has a separate kids pool and slide/ splash area (although he is probably too old for it). Both have Sky Pad, waterslides, laser tag that he'll love. I also liked the shows better on Indy with Grease and Once Upon a Time but that's a personal preference. Having said that if Mariner is doing a 5 nighter, then the additional day is a plus factor.

  11. Hi, I tried to search but can’t find my answer. On the independence of the seas if rooms are adjoining can the divider between the balconies be opened? Specially cabins 7408 and 7410. Thanks in advance for your help.

  16. I flew my Maple Leaf in front of my house in Delaware. Three years ago, we were on the Summit "Independence Day" cruise. Overnight in Halifax for Canada Day. Great spirit in the city; it was the 150th. We were lucky enough to see the Royal Tattoo at the ScotiaBank Center, followed by some congenial beers at the Halifax Ale House down the street. Fabulous. Then overnight in Boston for the Fourth. A great cruise and a great celebration in Canada.
  17. A compliance measure that NO ONE rEally cares about? If you care, cruising isn't for you? Vox populi. Got your travel plans for tomorrow's Independence Day COVID19 rally at Mt. Rushmore. Compliance measures; no one cares. Tell that to the Arizona and Texas hospitals out of beds and supplies. Check all the boxes and set sail? You might notice that many other countries are restricting Americans from entering - with good reason.

  22. Hi All- I was a GTY Junior Suite on the Independence of Seas and today was assigned #1102. I believe this is a new room, so I haven't found much information on it. Has anyone had any insight or stayed in the new section of Deck 11?
  23. I saw that ice show. Perhaps Explorer, or maybe Independence?
  24. We are new to RCL. Wondering about OV cabin fwd deck 7. Independence of the Sea cabin 7506 Does it have 2 OV windows? Any pictures to share? Pros/cons? Thanks!
