Last week, Royal Caribbean announced a multi-million pound makeover of its most popular ship, Independence of the Seas – and she’ll be ready and raring to go again for May 2018, before starting a season of cruising from Southampton. Details of her exciting new refit have been kept under wraps until now, but we can now reveal she’ll boast a fantastic range of exciting new activities and facilities…

Tease your brain and put your skills to the test in the exhilarating Escape Room, an interactive real-life escape game. It’s perfect for spending time with the family as you solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints and strategies!

Jumping for joy

Show off your crazy flips and acrobatic tricks on the top deck’s very own trampoline park. With a huge surge in trampoline enthusiasts, it was only a matter of time before they popped up on a cruise ship.

She’ll have even more firsts-at-sea too – light up the afternoon with a game of Laser Tag! This fast and furious non-impact game is fun for all the family – but who will come out on top? The splashtastic H20 Zone will still remain firmly in place, with the addition of some new wild waterslides. Be prepared for the ride of your life!

Firm favourites

And don’t worry, the ‘old faithful’ facilities that many have come to know and love onboard Independence of the Seas such as the FlowRider®, Ice Rink and Rock Wall will still be well within your reach. Have you made it to the top of the rock wall and rang the bell?

Now the secret is out, we’re counting down the days to summer 2018. Are you looking forward to these exciting new additions? What would you have loved to see onboard? Let us know in the comments below!
