The Ship

Independence of the Seas 2018

Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas® is overflowing with plenty of ways to fill your time between all of those Rock ‘n Roll shows you’ll be enjoying out on the Pool Deck, in the Royal Theater, or in Studio B. You’ll never run out of things to do or places to treat your taste buds on this ship! Feast on made-to-order rolls at Izumi, indulge your sweet tooth at Sugar BeachSM or strap in, put on your virtual reality headset and soar high into the sky for gravity-defying fun at Sky Pad℠.

We are departing from PortMiami in Miami, Florida and will stop for some fun and relaxation on Day 3 at Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic!

What Passengers Think

This was our first RLC and it was AMAZING!! The entertainment was top notch! And what made it even better was all the awesome people! We are booked for next year!

Jeremy, RAWK! Jeremy, RAWK!

I can honestly say the cruise was incredible – from the music, food, drinks, and service from all involved. Everyone was cheerful and helpful. The Gary Hoey Jam was. The ultimate. I was tired and did not think I would be able to stay awake or stay on my feet all night long. All of the food establishments were very tasty and clean. Considering this is the peak of flu season, I think the ship was very clean and the staff went above and beyond to keep it that way. Great time had by all. Thank you everyone involved.

Patty, Cruise was incredible! Patty, Cruise was incredible!
