Independence 2 Bedroom suite 6716 hot tub functional?

Recommended Posts

I’ll let you know on Friday. We have both rfs for a girls trip. Haven’t heard that they were not functioning. I emailed the concierge earlier to request additional towels and she did not mention they did not work.

We got back and had a great time!  The hottub is functional but there is no heating element.  As I said before it was a girls trip and we had both rooms.  They did have slightly different layouts.  They have upgraded wood finishes as opposed to the other RFS due to it being the Presidential suite.  There is no longer a long table on the other one.  There are just 4 seat tables on each balcony.  The safes are underneath the dressing vanities. It took us a while to find them.  Being on deck 6 was nice and easily accessible to everything.  We had the steward open the balcony dividers and enjoyed the extra large balcony.  Concierge service was very good although my main complaint is that they serve very low brand liquors and wines as compared to Celebrity. the lounge has a very nice outside area for seating and lounging.  We have it booked again for next Feb.

We did use the hottub. We used it on sailaway, and after a long day of touring in Cozumel and another evening after shows and dinner.  You could fill it with hot water.  the room steward showed us how to fill it and drain it. which was a pain.  I do not think that it ever had a heating element in it due to fire regulations.  There was just an on and off button.  We did use it several times.  It does have to be drained every day due to no chemicals in the water.
