This morning, I caught the shuttle bus from Orlando International Airport to Port Canaveral and queued up to board the Independence of the Seas. There were a LOT of people in lines but they moved the lines really efficiently and from getting off the bus to boarding the ship it only took a little over ten minutes. I was VERY impressed with how Royal Caribbean has streamlined the boarding process. Kudos, Royal!
Tomorrow, we arrive at Royal Caribbean’s private island, Coco Cay. I will be getting pictures inside and out of the ship tomorrow and posting them on my Facebook page. This ship is a real beauty.
For now, let me show you a couple pics of my room and balcony:
That’s about all for tonight. I’m really pooped. The excitement, the sun, and the warmth have taken their toll on my as has the rocking of the ship. The first day/night is always the most rocking as the ship moves through the sea. It’s like I’m a little kid again being rocked to sleep. Can barely keep my eyes open!
