A Closer Look at Independence of the Seas

Independence of the Seas Cruises


As the third of three Freedom class ships, Independence of the Seas was launched in 2008. Since then, she has become very popular with the UK market thanks to her frequent cruises out of Southampton. Just like her sisters, Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas the ship was one of the largest passenger ships in the world when she was built, only to be overtaken by both the Quantum and Oasis class ships at a later date.

Although sometimes under a different name, Independence of the Seas features many of the same public areas that you will find on board the other ships in this class. A 2013 revamp also installed the popular FlowRider® surf simulator, new baking boutique Cupcake Cupboard and the Royal Tots Nursery. These join other successful venues such as Jonny Rockets®, Vintages, Studio B and the H20 Zone, which Royal Caribbean cruisers have come to know and love.

With areas especially for children, teens and adults, the whole family will love their time on board this fantastic ship. As well as the Mediterranean cruises that are offered out of Southampton, Independence of the Seas spends her winters in Fort Lauderdale sailing on Caribbean cruises.
