Independence of the Seas Review


Pros and Cons

Pros: FlowRider surfing simulator is exciting, even for observers; the H2O Zone is a fun place to beat the heat beneath a waterfall, in the fountain sprays, and along a lazy river; a sports pool accommodates water volleyball, basketball, and golf.

Cons: the location of a self-serve frozen-yogurt bar near the kids' pool means that it often ends up messy; hang on to your wallet—the malts in Johnny Rockets diner aren’t included in the price; on a ship this large, lines are inevitable, particularly at disembarkation.
