There’s no mistaking the fact that Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-class ships have been getting a lot of press lately! Those ships are the biggest on the ocean, and they’re absolutely tricked out. While it’s all well and good that they’re getting so much attention, it’s perhaps leading some people to forget about the other gems in Royal Caribbean’s line.
We’re, of course, talking about the Freedom-class ships, of which the Independence of the Seas is a part. Before the Oasis-class ships came out, these were the biggest and baddest ships in Royal Caribbean’s line. While they may no longer be the biggest, you can bet that they’re every bit as bad as they used to be. In fact, some might say that they’re even badder! That’s because Royal Caribbean has kept up with the updates, ensuring that she’s ships are every bit as modern as the other ones rolling off the assembly line.
But, what makes the Independence of the Seas so cool, and why should you consider booking your next cruise aboard her? That’s exactly what we’re going to be showing you in the 22 amazing pictures that follow. Let’s go!
1. Caribbean Classic
The Independence of the Seas made her debut for Royal Caribbean in 2008, and she’s been delighting passengers ever since.
2. Get Together
As with the other ships in her class, the main gathering point for passengers below decks is the Royal Promenade, which offers all kinds of shops.

There, you’ll find a classic car cordoned off in front of one of the shops, restaurants or bars. This is the calling card of the Freedom Class line.
