They will do a lot of that then. But on most ships, that happens at other times as well, not necessarily during drydock. They'll likely do the large spaces that need it (MDR, restaurants, etc...). But often time individual hallways or even stairwells will be done in phases and during cruises.

Is there no large outside movie screen on the Independence of the Seas currently? I saw it listed as one of the items to be adrressed in the dry dock. I thought I saw it listed as a feature of the ship (we sail in December 2012). I also thought there was a cup cake place on board, but may have been mistaken.

The other two ships have been upgraded already, but IOS will not get these until 2013.

Wow. That is pretty disappointing. Don"t get me wrong, I get that there is still plenty to do on this ship. I was researching both the Freedom of the Seas and Independence of the Seas and thought for sure that I read that the Independence had the outdoor screen and that there was a reference to a cup cake shop (two of my favorite things on a ship). I must have confused the two (there is so much to read and understand...). I am surprised as new as this ship is that it was not originally built with the large screen over a pool. Oh well, paid for now, so I guess we will go without.

I believe this is a good reason to book an additional cruise
