Independence of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

Okay, so you probably have a rough idea of what you think cruising is all about. But be prepared, because there are constantly comments from first-time cruisers that they're totally surprised once they get onboard.

Royal Caribbean International cruise ships are some of the most innovative in the industry - they're bigger and brighter, with a lot more open spaces and private balconies. Onboard and shoreside activities appeal to everyone from the rock climber, to the sun worshiper.

Where to start? Planning a cruise vacation on Royal Caribbean is easy. Many people like to start by choosing a Destination. Others choose their cruise by Port of Departure, or even the Ship.

All activities including amazing fitness center, entertainment and award-winning Adventure Ocean® Youth Program are all paid for. Even 24-hour room service is included. So, if you're looking for an incredible value, look no further - this is the vacation for you!
