In April 2019, I sailed on Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas from Ft. Lauderdale. It was a 4 Night Western Caribbean Cruise with a stop in Cozumel Mexico and a day at sea on each end.
Indy home ports in Port Everglades Ft Lauderdale Florida where she sails 4 & 5 Night Western Caribbean itineraries.
