Overview of Independence of the Seas


The 3,858-passenger Independence of the Seas joined the Royal Caribbean International fleet in 2008. She is most loved for her outstanding entertainment.


Onboard Experience

Accommodation

Independence of the Seas’ award-winning accommodation redefines the cruising experience one room at a time. Her staterooms are an alluring escape from the non-stop action that she’s known for. Choose from a range of cabins with deluxe amenities; a stay aboard Independence of the Seas is like nothing else at sea.

Dining

There’s no better way to appease your hunger than with some delicious fish and chips. On Deck 11, just steps from the pool, you’ll find Fish & Ships, a seaside seafood spot that serves baskets of freshly-battered cod and hand-cut fries. You can get classic comfort food plus crispy calamari, savoury battered sausages and even a cold pint of draught beer.

For made-to-order burgers, sides, shakes and desserts head to Johnny Rockets on Deck 12. Serving delicious American fare around the world since 1986, Johnny Rockets offers good food in a retro hangout. Chops Grille on Deck 11, a classic American steakhouse, is the place to go for hand-cut steaks. The chefs at Chops Grille proudly present quality cuisine with a fresh twist. What’s more, the revamped menu brings contemporary flair to traditional steakhouse offerings.

For those with a sweet tooth, head to Sugar Beach on Deck 5, an indulgent oasis home to all your favourite confections. Pic ‘n’ mix at its finest, fill a grab bag to maximum candy capacity or treat yourself to fluffy cupcakes and other tasty treats.

Entertainment

Who thought it would be possible to bounce on a bungee trampoline in the middle of the ocean? On Independence of the Seas Sky Pad you can do just that. Strap in, put on your virtual reality headset and soar high into the sky for gravity-defying fun. Join Bass Bouncer, which throws you into a futuristic world powered entirely by music or score points by grabbing sweets as you bounce your way along an enchanted path in Sugar Leap.

Experience double the thrills on Typhoon and Cyclone, the boldest water slides at sea. As you speed through each white-knuckle twist and turn, long, translucent stretches offer sea views as exhilarating as the ride itself. These slides have everything it takes to keep even the most courageous daredevils' adrenaline levels, way, way up.

Only Royal Caribbean International offers Tony Award-winning musicals at sea. As an official sponsor of Broadway’s brightest award, Independence of the Seas has shows that you can’t stop singing. Discover shows you might have missed or see your favourites again - like Grease, where you can hand jive and sing along with Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and the rest of Rydell High.

Feeling hungry? And ambitious? Take on the Playmakers Challenge at Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade on Deck 4. Eat 100 of the hottest wings in 45 minutes and you’ll receive a commemorative t-shirt. If you’re more of a spectator, pull up a pew and order the signature Playmakers Burger while watching the fun unfold. Catch your favourite team live on dozens of screens or face off against your friends in the arcade.
