Independence of the Seas

Dates: June 9-12, 2023
 
 
 Independence of the Seas® is giving the Caribbean an injection of new adventures on getaways. Launch yourself into a virtual world on the Sky Pad® bungee trampoline experience. Go head to head in a glow-in-the-dark laser tag clash in Battle for Planet Z℠. Score an awesome time and game-changing grub at Playmakers℠ Sports Bar & Arcade. Come Seek the Royal Caribbean®. 
 
Forget everything you thought you knew about cruising and get ready for next level thrills at every turn. You can kick off your day with a high-flying virtual reality experience in Sky Pad®, then race down The Perfect Storm℠ dueling waterslides while little ones have a gallon of fun at Splashaway Bay℠ — and that’s just on one deck.
 
You’ll find endless new surprises onboard just waiting to thrill you — no matter what your age. At Playmakers℠ Sports Bar & Arcade, both kids and adults will have a blast making their own legendary plays at the arcade — all while tucking in to game-day favorites like wings, popcorn shrimp and burgers. Just make sure to save room dessert at Sugar Beach℠, where over-the-top ice cream creations and sugarcoated surprises will make even the most seasoned sweet tooths feel like kids again.

Itinerary:

 
June 9, 2023 (4:00PM)-Embark from Port Canaveral, FL
 
June 10, 2023 (7:00AM-5:00PM) Perfect Day At Cococay, Bahamas -Enjoy Royal Caribbean's Private Island
This isn’t vacation days spent. This is bragging rights earned. Cruise to CocoCay to conquer the tallest waterslide in North America and snap a shot from up to 450 feet up in a helium balloon. Grab a drink at the swim-up bar and soak up the scene in the largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas. Or get a taste of Bora Bora with your own Overwater Cabana. Discover the magic of Perfect Day at CocoCay — only onboard Royal Caribbean® Cruises.
 
June 11, 2023 (7:00AM-3:00PM)-Nassau, Bahamas
Caribbean charm shines in the Bahamian capital, where you’re never more than a few steps away from rhythmic percussions, appetizing flavors, white-sand beaches, and some of the clearest waters in the world. This picture-perfect paradise was once a pirate’s haven— and you can explore its colorful past of buccaneers, blockade-runners and bootleggers along historical streets and at the three colonial fortresses that line the shores. If you’re looking for a more hands-on maritime adventure, look no further. Cruise to Nassau and swim with stingrays, dive with dolphins, or spot colorful coral on a glass-bottom boat. And just across the bridge is beautiful Paradise Island, home to world-famous luxury hotels and resorts. Spend the day at the famous Atlantis and splash your way through its expansive water park, grab a piña colada at the Marina Village, and spot the hammerhead sharks in Predator Lagoon.
 
June 12, 2023 (7:00AM)-Disembark from Port Canaveral, FL
