November 2015 - Independence of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) -
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - Call your hotel immediately after getting your bags. Don't wait for your hotel van to just show up. Our hotel shuttle to the holiday Inn express even after calling took over 45 minutes. Better yet book Hiat Place Hotel. After sitting there in the traffic fumes for so long I saw their vans pick passengers up every 5 to ten minutes.
Falmouth, Jamaica - If you stay on the ship you'll have the place to yourselves. The pool, the hot tub the buffet.
