Independence Bliss Cruise 2018

Big News on the Update Ship & Itinerary

On Feb 23, 2017 Bliss Cruise announced a ship, date and itinerary change for the November 2018 Bliss Cruise Sailing.

New Ship:  Independence of the Seas
New Date: November 11-17 2018
New Itinerary: Ft Lauderdale, Sea Day, Montego Bay Jamaica, Sea day, Cozumel, Sea day, Ft Lauderdale.

Why we like this Bliss Cruise Ship Change:

  • Same Great Ship only Newer – Independence of the Seas is the Freedom’s sister ship and will be fresh out of a refurbishment – New is Nicer!
  • We will have much better tours from the Jamaican port of Montego Bay than Falmouth.


Deposits as low as $100 per room

We know that 2018 is a long way off and we want to make it easy to say ‘YES’ to getting your pick of cabins on the Independence Bliss Cruise.  We have created a way to allow you to split your deposit and make an initial payment of only $100.

  • Choose a cabin in the BEST location.
  • During check out write ‘$100 deposit’ in the comment box.  Not sure what that is?  Call us!
  • One tricky thing:  We are manually adjusting to the $100 deposit.  So when you check out the deposit will still read $500.  Our book-keeper will MANUALLY adjust the deposit from $500 to $100 when she processes your charge.  This takes 24-48 hours.  If you are concerned, just call us!  No charges are ‘automatic’ during the booking process.  You won’t be charged the larger amount.
  • That’s it!  We will put you on the $100 Deposit payment schedule listed below.
  • This offer valid on cabins only, suites pay regular deposit.

Independence Bliss Cruise 2018 – Why go?

On this cruise we believe that most couples will agree that the ship is really the destination.  There are several things we LOVE about the new Independence Bliss Cruise.

  • Promenade – Promenade – Promenade!  Just like the original Freedom Cruise, Independence has a Promenade! This is a restaurant and shopping area that runs half the length of the ship.  Its the perfect place to mingle after dinner and before the night parties start!  Plus the promenade hosts parades & parties!
  • The sexy pool deck glows at night!  A perfect party venue!
  • Studio B is scheduled to be the playroom.  Maybe you have danced the night away in this humongous space with theater seating.  Well get ready!  TheSwingerCruise thinks this will be THE biggest playroom ever, with over 100 play spaces!!
  • It’s 6 nights!   You get the punch of a 7 night cruise without needing to take the extra time to get organized.  Sunday – Saturday… That is Perfect!  You can arrive to Ft Lauderdale on Saturday, one night before the cruise sails.  After you get home you have Sunday to ease yourself back into reality.
  • This ship is the true essence of fun and perfect for a Swinger Cruise!
