Earlier this spring, Independence of the Seas received a radical new makeover that saw a host of new innovations and features added to the cruise ship. The ship is returning to Ft. Lauderdale this fall and will sail cruises to the Caribbean for the winter cruise season. (4 night cruises start at $275) New features that were added to the cruise ship include:
Glow-in-the-dark laser tag, an experience in Studio B unlike any other, where friends and family can team up to play “Battle for Planet Z”.
Puzzle Break, a new escape room experience where competitors can put their minds to the test, working together to find hidden clues and solve a series of high-tech riddles to unravel a mystery. With only 60 minutes of play, the excitement builds with each tick of the clock.
Breathtakingly beautiful new lounges and Panoramic Oceanview staterooms adds an extra bit of extraordinary to Independence. With stunning wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling views, guests can soak up the feeling of standing on the bridge of the ship and watching the sunset over the coastline, all from the privacy of their own stateroom.
Izumi Hibachi & Sushi, the exotic Asian-inspired dining experience gives guests the chance to enjoy fresh sushi and experience skilled chefs cooking tableside on teppanyaki grills.
Fish & Ships, a poolside eatery where guests can grab quintessentially British seaside treats.
Sugar Beach candy shop, a wondrous world of delicious delights, along with a few exciting surprises.
