Well folks....we're back

We had an outstanding cruise. Independence is a beautiful ship. The crew was outstanding!

We used My Time Dining but only ate in the DR twice. They seemed a little dis-organized and overwhelmed at times. Only one person was seating guests but she was also setting up the tables. Bless her heart...she was overworked. Once seated though, everything was great. Be sure to get reservations!


Windjammer was also very good and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the informal time with friends. The staff in there was great.

The weather was very cool. The highest temps we heard was 72-75 degrees.

The only problems we experienced was traffic getting to the ship.....WOW ! With six ships in that day it was a little .....crazy. Also, once inside the terminal, it really got backed up due to 2 folks that decided to stay onboard, hide, sleep in or whatever and they could not clear the ship until they got them off. Disembarkation was also a little hectic but, we managed. I'm sure some of these problems are because they are trying to change things up for Oasis...we'll see. These were little things and did not take away from our wonderful cruise.
