Independence of the Seas 'to be as big as her sisters'

Date Posted: 18 Sep 2007
The Independence of the Seas is to be as large as her sister ships and share in their claim to being the largest ships in the world, Royal Caribbean Cruises has revealed.

The latest liner in the Royal Caribbean Cruises fleet was floated out over the weekend, making the transition from dry dock to wet dock ahead of her maiden voyage in May 2008.

Now, final finishing work will be carried out on the luxury cruise ship - whose features are to include cantilevered whirlpools overlooking the ocean, an aqua park, a surf simulator and a boxing ring.

"[The] Independence of the Seas will share the title of worlds largest cruise ship with her sister-ships, Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas, weighing in at 160,000 [gross registered tonnage] and holding 3,634 guests, double-occupancy," Royal Caribbean Cruises reports.

Passengers travelling onboard a Royal Caribbean Cruises ship can enjoy voyages around Alaska, Australasia, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
