This Popular British Cruise Ship Just Got Even Better!

27 Sep 2017

One of Britain’s most popular cruise ships, Royal Caribbean International’s Independence of the Seas is to get a multi-million pound makeover in 2018.

Independence of the Seas has well and truly won the hearts of British cruise passengers, since she made her UK debut in 2008. The 4,000-passenger ship introduced the UK to many amazing cruise firsts, such as an ice-skating rink, rock-climbing wall, Flowrider surf simulator, and a shopping promenade. Now 10 years later, Independence of the Seas will WOW guests even more.

Independence of the Seas has always been a fantastic family ship, perfect for those taking a cruise for the first time. When the ship emerges from a multi-million pound refurbishment in April 2018, little cruisers will have gallons of fun at the new Splashaway Bay water park. Replacing, the current H20 Zone, this bigger and better interactive aqua park features slides, water cannons, fountains, pools and a giant drench bucket! There will also be wild waterslides that spiral over the ship! If you’re not jumping up and down by now, you soon will do. Independence of the Seas will be home to a trampoline park on top deck. For those with a quest for adventure, the new laser tag complex will be an unforgettable experience to light up afternoons at sea, or tease your brain in the challenging and exhilarating escape room. Sushi fans will love the new Izumi restaurant, serving Asian-inspired food, and high-flying hibachi where chefs cook tableside on teppanyaki grills. Guests will be able to enjoy a British classic – fish and chips at Fish & Ships. Score an amazing time at Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade and then dive into sweet treats at the Sugar Beach Candy & Ice Cream Store. Wake up in style with the most impressive views, rivalled only by the Captain on the bridge, in one of the new Panoramic Ocean View staterooms. These new staterooms will feature stunning floor-to-ceiling windows which look out over the bow of the ship.

On top of all these amazing new features, you can also enjoy everything else you’d expect from a Royal Caribbean International cruise, such as amazing dining options and spectacular entertainment – including a full-scale production of Grease The Musical!

There truly has never been a better time to cruise aboard Independence of the Seas than in 2018.
