Has anyone recently been on the Independence?

Recommended Posts

Hi CC.

 

I am due to go on the Indie at the end of June and was wondering if anyone has recently sailed on her and if so what was it like? 

 

Is it still in good repair? 

 

Food okay? 

 

Service? 

 

Etc

Hi, we just got home from Independence this past Saturday - it was fabulous! The only thing I saw was a frayed bit of carpet in our stateroom. Honestly the ship looked fabulous- we had a fantastic time.

We are also going at the end of June, can't wait. I've read some good reviews so we should be OK.

We were on the ship May 18, 2019. I found the ship to be in great shape. Our stateroom was clean and in good repair as well. I saw nothing wrong with this ship. All great, so have fun.

We were on the last transatlantic before the refurb.  At that time she was still picture perfect, great ship and outstanding crew.

We were on in April and had a great cruise. My husband really liked Playmakers!

Any examples of the drink prices, specifically the cost of a can of soda? The reason I ask is that it was reported on social media that a can of soda was $7!

Last time we cruised, a can of soda was around $4 including tip.

But prices on Indy when sailing from the UK include gratuity and someone posted a photo of a receipt and it clearly shows $7 for can of soda on her first sailing this year from Southampton following the TA.

That's a huge increase, even for Royal!

We didn't buy any cans of soda so I don't know but that sounds very expensive, wine and beer started at $8. I think I'd bring on my own cans for that price.

We were  in a jr. suite  in Jan and also the end of April and she looked great. No problems in any area.

I am relying on @kernow because they did a great review. If it is bad we can blame them:classic_tongue:

 

Very comprehensive review indeed
