Independence of the Seas, independence of the Seas has been renewed to give it the very best features of Royal Caribbean ships, and now offers even more WOW moments on your cruise holiday. If you've ever fancied surfing, now's your chance, with the amazing FlowRider®. Rather take it easy? Then soak up the rays and the view in our above-the-sea whirlpools. With our incredible H2O ZoneSM waterpark, the Royal Promenade with its enticing shops and cafes, you might not want to leave!

Get wet in the H2O Zone, or get your skates on and hit the ice rink. You can also try the climbing wall, get in the boxing ring or go surfing on FlowRider® whenever you need another shot of adrenaline. Challenge the family to a round of Mini Golf, go see a show, or do a little shopping as you wander down the Royal Promenade. And you can let kids loose in Adventure Ocean® anytime. Immerse yourself in one of the whirlpools, stretching right out over the sea. Have yourself some me time in the spa, or get your daily workout at the fitness centre. In the mood for a snack and a fine coffee? Head to Latte-tudes. Fancy a quick casual bite? Grab a pizza at Sorrentos or burger and fries at Johnny Rockets. For a more leisurely, indulgent dinner, savour the fine menus on offer at Portofino and Chops Grille.
