Our 2013 family vacation on Royal Caribbean Caribbean, the Independence

Room Type: Oceanview

This year, my wife and I have decided to take our 3 daughters and her mom on an 8 day cruise with us. We all had a wonderful time. The ship was full of fun, we enjoyed everything we had time for. The crew was awesome, the food not too bad. We visited St. Maarten, St Kitts, San Juan Puerto Rico and Labadee, Haiti. Among the four destinations, my children enjoyed Haiti the most, they went on two excursions, the jet sky and the zip-line.

The safari on the open old military truck is not safe.
