Cruise Destination

Independence of the Seas

Set Your Vacation Free with the Independence of the Seas

Independence of the Seas cruisers know which ship to board for a phenomenal onboard experience. Both families and couples love the amenities and features on this vessel, which include the popular surf simulator, FlowRider®. There’s also the mini golf course, bubbling, cantilevered whirlpools, and more.

Stroll the Royal Promenade for shopping and dining fun aboard the Independence of the Seas. If you feel adventurous, try ice skating or rock climbing — you can even take a yoga or tai chi class. If you just want to enjoy a show, the Broadway hit Grease the Musical will entertain you. Of course, no one will judge you if you just want to sink into one of six hot tubs.

Alhambra Theatre

World-class performers from all over the globe star in awe-inspiring original shows by Royal Caribbean Productions. It could be a contemporary stage production or a Las Vegas-inspired floorshow, a headline musical act or a live comedy show. No matter which show is on stage, it's sure to leave you cheering.

enter

Vintages

Experience Vintages, a wine bar at sea. Together with Robert Mondavi, Beringer® Blass Wine Estates and Niebaum-Coppola, Royal Caribbean has created a first-rate wine bar everyone can enjoy. The menu includes a range of options from some of the best wine-producing regions in the world - order an old favorite or find a new one with the sampling menus. You can also take part in wine tastings and classes.

enter

Studio B

You won't believe your eyes when you step into Studio B. It's where you'll find the onboard ice-skating rink, not to mention professional ice shows, which are a "must-see." When the professionals aren't practicing or putting on one of their remarkable shows, guests are welcome to use the rink at no charge.

enter

Dog & Badger Pub

Share a pint and a laugh at this traditional English pub. A long list of imported beers and ales offer a great way to unwind after a busy day onshore and onboard.

enter

Schooner Bar

There's nothing quite like relaxing in a nautical-themed bar when you're at sea, especially if you're in the Schooner Bar, a Royal Caribbean signature bar and guest favorite. In the evening, you may find a crowd gathered around the piano singing along with any one of the talented piano players featured.

enter

Viking Crown Lounge®

Perched high above the ocean, this Royal Caribbean signature lounge offers comfortable seating, spectacular vistas by day and a lively dance club at night.

Vitality at Sea Spa

Indulgence begins right here. From the moment you enter the luxurious spa, your personal needs and preferences will become the centerpiece, and your treatment will be designed to ensure the most enjoyable and beneficial result.

FlowRider

The FlowRider surf simulator attracts hundreds of eager surfers and oglers to the aft sports court each day. Even guests who never thought they'd try something like this are giving it a go. You don’t need lessons to try out the FlowRider surf simulator, but personal one-on-one sessions with instructors are a great way to get more time on the water so you can master the basics, perfect your form or pick up a few fun tricks.

enter

Solarium

The adults-only Solarium pool is an oasis for guests, complete with towering palm trees, hammocks and cantilevered whirlpools that extend 12-ft. beyond the sides of the ship. The whirlpools' wide panels of glass allow a breathtaking view from the horizon to the ocean below.
