I have uploaded the compasses and menus from the 2-10-2013 Independence 6-night cruise to https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...D26087A5BF!124

These are the "old" menus, since the new menus weren't ready in time for our sailing.

I apologize for the quality of many of the menu and food pictures. I didn't take my camera to the dining room most nights, so I had to make due with the camera on my phone which doesn't do well with dim lighting.

No one seems to know much of anything about the new menues; not on the ship or at RCCL directly. I emailed C&A about the menu 2 weeks before our 01/27/13 sailing. Got a response back LAST week , saying she has never heard any news about any new menues for any ships; lucky it was not a question of importance !

Thanks for posting the Compasses and Menus! We will be on the Independence sailing Nov. 15 this year. This will be an eight day cruise, so the compasses may be a little different, but it was fun to see them, anyway!

Also note that the menus will be completely different, as this was from before the complete menu overhaul.

Just be aware that the menus have completely changed since I posted this. You can get a better idea of the new menus from http://www.royalcaribbeanpresscenter...d-press-kit/7/
