Independence of the Seas

Forget everything you thought you knew about cruising and get ready for next level thrills at every turn. You can kick off your day with a high-flying virtual reality experience in Sky Pad ®, then race down The Perfect Storm℠ dueling waterslides while little ones have a gallon of fun at Splashaway Bay℠ — and that’s just on one deck.

Savor every bite of batter fried goodness poolside at the new Fish & Ships℠ seafood spot. Take your taste buds on a trip to the Far East at Izumi, where fresh Asian-inspired flavors are literally on a roll. Or indulge in prime cuts of meat and steakhouse classics at Chops Grille℠. Whatever you’re craving, you’ll find plenty of delicious ways to fuel up between adventures onboard.

You’ll find endless new surprises onboard just waiting to thrill you — no matter what your age. At Playmakers℠ Sports Bar & Arcade, both kids and adults will have a blast making their own legendary plays at the arcade — all while tucking in to game-day favorites like wings, popcorn shrimp and burgers. Just make sure to save room dessert at Sugar Beach℠, where over-the-top ice cream creations and sugarcoated surprises will make even the most seasoned sweet tooths feel like kids again.

There’s always something to entertain you on Independence of the Seas. Whether riding the waves on the FlowRider surf simulator, climbing to the stars on the rock climbing wall, enjoying a meal at one of 13 onboard restaurants or simply relaxing by the pool, you and your group will have a memorable experience.
