Like the other Freedom-class vessels, Independence of the Seas features an interactive water park, the H2O Zone, a dedicated sports pool for volleyball and basketball, and whirlpools which extend from the ship’s sides.

It houses an internal shopping “street”, the Promenade, lined with shops, pubs and wine bars. The Promenade features a “sky bridge” which can be lowered from the ceiling to provide a performance space above the crowds during parades.

There is also the two story Alhambra theater, seating 1,200, and a complete conference center. The show cabaret lounge, called the Pyramid Lounge, is themed to ancient Egypt.

On a lower level is an ice skating rink named Studio B, which home to a series of professional ice shows and is also available for personal skating.
