6416 2 Bed GS on Independence of the seas

Recommended Posts

We are onboard INDY in a 2 bed GS, this was formally the royal suite and this year was split into 2 x 2 bed grand suites, I couldn't find any pics or videos before sailing so thought I would post these for anyone else. its pretty amazing and the balcony is huge IMG_0092_zpspozfadhf.jpgIMG_0094_zps0ono6eml.jpgIMG_0093_zpscltqijrf.jpgIMG_0096_zpsc0vnrxvj.jpgIMG_0099_zpsshqjiim8.jpg

Very Nice, what was the price and how many day cruise?

 

I thought the Royal Suite was always on deck 10 for this class of ships midship?

we are on for 2 cruises B2B 14 nights this one, the next one is 5 nights and we are in the cabin next door which is also a 2 bedroom GS, walking past when the door is open though its seems like a different layout so will post some pictures of that cabin when we move in.

It is. It was the old presidential suite that was converted to the two 2 bedroom grand suites.

Hi @Peewee14 this is very helpful as I was looking at a cruise on the Independence for 2020.

 

I would rather go Star Class, but the family are fed up going to the Med.

 

Did the hot tub still seem to be working in the other room? That would be a nice bonus.

 

Also it seems that 6416 has the second shower room off the hall. The other 2 bedroom grand suites seem to have it off the second bedroom which is not great if someone has the sofa bed. Did you get any idea if the other room was the same or had the second shower room en suite?

 

Thanks for you help

We are cruising in this suite next week.  Can anyone tell me if there is a pool off the back deck?

 

It looks like there is but I don't see one on the Royal Caribbean map?

What is the water just off the deck that is shown in the pictures in Suite #6416.

 

Maybe the Flowrider?

Not the flowrider.  That is on Deck 13.

 Can you post a photo?

 

Only other thing I can think of is it's a view of the ocean off the aft end of the ship.

Its not the ocean or the flowrider.

 

This is a flat piece of decking that there is no access to.  It is painted blue and because it had just rained it does look like a pool.

It looks like 6416 got the wet bar and 6716 got the hot tub when they converted the old Presidential Suite into the two 2 bed GS. Can anybody confirm if the hot tub in 6716 actually works?

 

There is very little information available from anyone who has stayed in it and a phone call to Royal didn’t make it any clearer.

 

Many thanks.

Can you tell me which room has the hot tub?  I just booked 6416 tonight.  Does the hot tub still work?  Any other info you can tell me about this room?  Like if I book the other room to can the balcony divider be opened up?
