It would seem that Indy could follow the same pattern as the Explorer dry dock, when they added the deck 12 cabins. The ship took on workers at both Port Everglades and materials at the Bahamas with work progressing as the ship crossed to Cadiz. There they released many of the ship's crew for vacation and more workers boarded to finalize the work prior to sailing up to Southampton from Cadiz.

RCI will most likely not return to Rotterdam for any dry dock due to the Oasis labor incident. Relatively the fine was very low though and they may have just built that into the cost of the Oasis revitalization. When a ship is at sea for dry dock, the labor laws are very relaxed for the 'hotel' crew that is now used to do 'light' work during the revitalization.

Now that they are bringing Mariner to dry dock at Freeport, Bahamas to get the Liberty enhancements prior to entering service year round from Miami, it would make sense to use Cadiz to add the deck 12 cabins to Indy as the cabins are prefabricated in Europe. That order can now include Explorer, Adventure and Mariner, which will all most likely have all the deck 2,3 and 12 cabins added.
Pretty sure Explorer already has the Deck 12 cabins added.

Explorer did a transatlantic drydock with the deck 12 cabins being added in Cadiz. Independence could be doing the same for her April 2018 dry dock, followed by Southampton sailings.

I see where you got that from the last line of the post. That is Indy, Adventure and Mariner.

Mariner will go to Freeport, Bahamas and will get the deck 12 cabins added most likely along with waterslides for Miami deployment.

when the two ships being used (Radiance and Explorer) arrive from Australia - though for 2019, there could be a reshuffling.
