Inside the check in counter of the port of Fort Lauderdale. The line was long but people are patient enough to wait for their turn. Everyone is excited for the cruise.

We waited at least 45 minutes in the line to have our turn. This was my first and good thing I have someone with me to guide me what to do. I presented my travel documents and my US I.D. to be able to board the Independence of the Sea. I was nervous, I thought they may not let me board because the lady in the counter don’t know the Identification I gave her. She called two supervisors to help her out. Good thing, they where able to enter my identification in their system.

As you enter the Royal Caribbean – Independence of the Sea, I was in awe. I didn’t imagine how big and beautiful the structures and the architecture inside, as if you are inside an office building.
