Description

The third Freedom class ship built in Finland; Independence of the Seas was, with her twins, the world's largest cruise ship until the arrival of the Oasis class. The Royal style is found in the variety of its gastronomic offer, the attention to service, and entertainment with many activities of all kinds. The interior furnishings are lively, sometimes elegant, and convey relaxation. A youthful ship, it offers fun to the young and old. In 2018 it underwent a deep and expensive restyling that helped to make it a ship perfectly in step with the times. Gabriele Bassi

Bella nave

I liked

I didn't like

commento

Bella nave ma 4 giorni soli sono troppo pochi. Per chi fosse interessato consiglio la prenotazione di una crociera di più lunga durata perché 4 giorni non sono sufficienti, o comunque scendi dalla nave non completamente soddisfatta. È stata un crociera "di corsa", tra le varie attività ed i luoghi da visitare il tempo ho vissuto questa esperienza in maniera frentica e per niente rilassante. Premesso ciò è l'ho trovata una compagnia più che valida!

voto 10 e lode

Tutto fantastico. L'animazione è veramente il top che si possa desiderare per una vacanza all'insegna del divertimento, energia da vendere. Complimenti! Inoltre, anche se la nave non è grandissima e nuovissima, è dotata di tutto quello che serve! Ottimo il servizio gluten free (di cui ho usufruito avendo la figlia celiaca). Da 1 a 10, voto 10 e lode.

Solo aggettivi positivi! Felice di aver scelto questa compagnia e questo itinerario! A condire il tutto c'è stata una coppia di ospiti italiani (conosciuti il primo giorno) che hanno reso i 4 giorni davvero indimenticabili!

I was delighted by the neverending delights on offer and didn't feel I had experienced even a fraction of this bewitching and magical place in my short four days onboard.

Deludente

I liked

I didn't like

commento

Nave a dir poco deludente, vecchia, puzzolente con servizi igienici a volte inesistenti. Due giorni senza acqua calda, odore forte di vernice in camera (hanno avuto la brillante idea di verniciare poco prima del nostro arrivo), scarsa animazione, accoglienza blanda e con poca considerazione dei bagagli (allo sbarco lasciati a sé stessi, sotto il sole, e sopratutto senza nessuno che controllasse). Per essere stata la mia luna di miele non c'è stato nessun tipo di carineria da parte dello staff. Come nave non la consiglio.

I know Royal Caribbean very well, and I had no doubt that this was a very beautiful bus. Well-constructed itinerary, customer-focused service, excellent gastronomy. Royal Caribbean is the winning formula to ensure the customer always cruises up to expectations. Try it!

Bella compagnia, se dovessi prenotare una prossima crociera sicuramente sceglierei una Royal Caribbean. Il personale è stato molto gentile, anche nei confronti dei miei bambini (indomabili). All'interno la nave risulta essere ben arredata e ben "mantenuta", promossa a pieni voti!

Voto 1000000! Luoghi suggestivi, mare immenso, profumi decisi e tempo fantatisco. Ho letto numerose recensioni negative riguardo questa nave ma .. non sono per niente d'accordo. L'itinerario sa il fatto suo, e questa nave è stata un'ottima "compagna" di avventure, immensa e accogliente!

Bella esperienza

Bella eperienza, 4 giorni di pieno relax. La nave è grande e confortevole. La pulizia lascia a desiderare ma dato l'enorme quantitativo di ospiti c'era da aspettarselo. Lo staff molto gentile, abbiamo avuto l'esigenza di fare richieste extra (rispetto ai servizi offerti dalla compagnia), e nonostante ciò siamo stati accontentati in maniera più che ottima.

Cibo delizioso, staff cortese, attività tutt'altro che noiose. Le cabine sicuramente non sono adatte a chi soffre di claustrofobia, ma su una nave da crociera c'è da aspettarselo.

Super soddisfatto, qualche mese fa avevo avuto modo di viaggiare con Serenade of the Seas, niente a che vedere con la Indipendence of the Seas! L'ho trovata una nave moderna, ricca di attività, e COMPLETA! Le piscine sono ben strutturate, i bambini tendono ad affollarsi nella piscina con gli scivoli, lasciando così le piscine restante per noi "adulti". In particolar modo una delle piscine ha un'ampia vetrata che affaccia sul mare, stupenda.
