Sapphire Princess, Queen Victoria & Independence of the Seas
Independence of the Seas returned from her refit on the 12th May 2018 with more cabins, restaurants and activities.  She would be docking in Mayflower Terminal facing starboard.  But first, it needed vacating and Vicky was due to sail at 5pm, facing the correct way for a change!  Sapphire Princess was in Ocean and sailed at 4pm.  Indy had undergone a multi-million dollar refit and underwent many changes.  The Raven nightclub would be turned into cabins and Izumi, On Air more cabins.  The theatre and three tier restaurant became plain Royal Theatre and Dining Room while the Pyramid Lounge was renamed Star Lounge and Dog & Badger pub became Ale & Anchor.  Cabins replaced other public areas such as library and Concierge Lounge and in every available space plus several were added forward on deck 12.  The upper deck was changed too and the ugly scrubber added to the funnel during the previous refit was removed.
