IEEE-USA’s 50th Anniversary Cruise

Join us 16-20 October 2023 aboard Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas for a 4-night cruise from sunny Orlando, Florida (Port Canaveral), to the tropical beauty of the Bahamas, as IEEE-USA celebrates 50 years of service to U.S. IEEE members. Our celebration cruise will feature exclusive events, food and live entertainment, nightly group dining, four informative, fast-paced and insightful “Lightning Sessions” on a variety of interesting topics, and scheduled meet-ups, but you’ll also have time to enjoy everything this remarkable ship has to offer.

We’ll be cruising in style from Port Canaveral to stops in Nassau and CocoCay, before concluding our cruise back in Port Canaveral.

Port Canaveral

Day 1 | Oct 16

Port Canaveral, FL

Home of Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral is the launching point for all-out adventure in Central Florida. Enjoy its family-friendly beaches, visit Orlando’s theme parks an hour away, kayak past manatees in the Banana River Lagoon, zip line above alligators at Brevard Zoo, and so much more.
Nassau, Bahamas

Day 2 | Oct 17

Nassau, Bahamas

Once a pirate’s haven, Caribbean charm shines in the picture-perfect 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.


Day 3 | Oct 18

CocoCay, Bahamas

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.

On Deck

Day 4 | Oct 19

There’s always something to entertain you on Independence of the Seas. Whether riding the waves on the FlowRider Surf Simulator, climbing to the stars on the rock climbing wall, enjoying a meal at one of 12 onboard restaurants or simply relaxing by the pool, you and your group will have a memorable experience.
