Port Canaveral

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.

Day 2

Day at Sea

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.

Nassau, Bahamas

Day 3

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.

CocoCay

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.
