Independence of the Seas arrives in Southampton After Refurbishment

Following the multi-million-pound makeover, Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas has arrived in Southampton.

The 3,858 passenger ship will be based in Southampton and sail European itineraries from May to November.

Independence of the Seas first guests will be welcomed on board tomorrow when she embarks on a two-night cruise to Paris.

New features and activities on board include Skypad – a virtual reality bungee trampoline, Planet Z Laser tag, Perfect Storm water slides and escape room game Puzzle Break.

Managing director, Royal Caribbean International UK and Ireland, Ben Bouldin said: “Holiday time is precious, and travellers today have higher expectations and more options than ever before.

“We don’t just want to meet these expectations, but smash them and redefine how to holiday. From our largest yet hibachi restaurant to a virtual reality bungee trampoline experience, Independence of the Seas is set to be the most spectacular ship sailing out of Southampton this coming season.”
