Looking for chapel furniture for a small circular sanctuary in Ohio.  We just did a back to back cruise on the ship and discovered its remodel of the skylight chapel. We are starting in the  Spring to build a small circular christian chapel in Ohio. We are interested in purchasing or obtaining the arched benches as a donation.  I can make transport arrangements if possible.

Hi Dorrece,

Thank you for your question. As of now (January 2018), Royal Caribbean has not officially announced the dry dock location for Independence of the Seas. The last sailing from Fort Lauderdale is March 29, 2018 and since there is no transatlantic sailing open for booking, it looks probable that the work will be completed at the Grand Bahama Ship Yard in Freeport, Bahamas. Another reason that the Grand Bahama shipyard is very likely the location, is that both Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas (sister ships to Independence), were both dry docked there for very similar upgrades in the past 3 of years. If we get any new information, we will update this answer.
