Day 1 | Fort Lauderdale, Florida // Embark on Your Journey
Fort Lauderdale lies along the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the New River, 25 miles north of Miami. Its warm tropical weather attracts many people throughout the year. For sun-worshippers, the city has six miles of beaches. There are also many recreational waterways with extensive boating facilities, access to every conceivable watersport, a variety of fascinating museums and trendy restaurants, and an array of entertainment venues.

Day 2 | Crusing at Sea
Spend the day at sea as the Independence transports you to Labadee for your first port of call.
 
Rest and relax at Vitality Spa with an extensive treatment menu including medi-spa and acupuncture, 4 pools including the Solarium, an adults-only retreat, 6 whirlpools, two of them cantilevered whirlpools overlooking the ocean, state-of-the-art fitness center, with classes including yoga and tai chi, a library and card room, and poolside outdoor movie screen.

Other activities include basketball courts, rock climbing wall, FlowRider surf pool, minature golf, and a casino.

Day 3 | Labadee, Haiti
Only Royal Caribbean can take you to the private beach destination of Labadee. Our private paradise sits on the north coast of Haiti, surrounded by beautiful mountain slopes and exotic foliage. This exclusive destination offers pristine beaches, breathtaking scenery, incredible thrills and spectacular water activities. Regardless of where you go, you'll find yourself embraced by the beautiful landscape. Labadee's native charm, along with its natural beauty, make this a destination not to be missed. It's impossible to choose just one thing that's special about Labadee. The inviting beach, coral reefs and exciting amenities provide a perfect place to relax and have fun.

Day 4 | Falmouth, Jamaica
Quaint Falmouth was an economic powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. In today's Falmouth, visitors still enjoy 19th-century Georgian architecture as well as river bamboo raft rides, arts and crafts shopping, flavorful local fare and horse-and-buggy rides. Falmouth is the gateway to the best Jamaica has to offer. Just east of Falmouth is Ocho Rios, known for its spectacular Dunn’s River Falls. Travel west to reach Montego Bay and the beautiful beaches of Negril. Thanks to its central location, Falmouth gives visitors the best tour experiences of the north coast of Jamaica.

Day 5 | George Town, Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman is one of a group of three magnificent tropical islands Christopher Columbus called "Las Tortugas" (the turtles) for the sea creatures he found in the ocean water. The designation did not endure, however, for on later maps the islands were labeled the Caimanau, the Carib Indian word for "crocodile." The name "Caimanas" refers inaccurately to the iguanas native to the islands, which were perhaps at one point mistaken for crocodiles. Among other attractions, visitors to the island will enjoy learning about the turtles, visiting the town of Hell, exploring Seven-Mile Beach and enjoying the undersea world.

Day 6 | Cozumel, Mexico
The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.

Day 7 | Cruising at Sea
Spend the day at sea relaxing by the pool as the Independence returns to Ft. Lauderdale.
 
Rest and relax at Vitality Spa with an extensive treatment menu including medi-spa and acupuncture, 4 pools including the Solarium, an adults-only retreat, 6 whirlpools, two of them cantilevered whirlpools overlooking the ocean, state-of-the-art fitness center, with classes including yoga and tai chi, a library and card room, and poolside outdoor movie screen.

Other activities include basketball courts, rock climbing wall, FlowRider surf pool, minature golf, and a casino.
