Itinerary: Canary Islands

We were very disappointed with the Independence of the Seas. All they seemed concerned about was charging extortionate prices for drinks and more or less everything else. The Ship did not have adequete aftr dinner seating and people were literally fighting for a nice place to sit. We were unable to get acup of coffee (other than in a paper cup) after dinner witha brandy. Most of the activities i.e. wrinkle seminar, teeth whitening etc. all involved vast expense. There was not adequate provision made or enterntainment in the bad weather. Queing seemed to make up a large part of most events. There was not adequete provision for smokers, with everybody crammed into two very smal rooms like second class citizens

The food was very boring and unimiaginative, the Windjammer was like being at a holiday camp and the servie in the dining room left a lot to be desired. Wine was priced out of all proportion

The stateroom was very nice and spacious.

Not very much, the entertainment in the theatre was good.

Didn't go on any as very expensive.

All in all very disappointed and willl not be going with Royal Caribean again,. They have got very greedy and even little things like chocolates on the bed have been stopped.
