Bliss Cruise Independence of the Seas Program

When to Arrive in Port

The ship is returning from Europe and will undergo a U.S. Coast Guard inspection on Nov. 11. Nobody enters the ship at this time, not even Bliss staff.

Do not arrive at the port super early because space is limited and the waiting time may be significant. It's best to arrive into the port after 12 noon. Passengers arriving too early may miss out on an exciting evening on Day 1 because they are fatigued from a long day of waiting to board.

Day 1 Production Setup

Bliss Cruise Team Members are highly trained and needed on Day 1, even though we expect a later start due to Coast Guard boarding restrictions in the morning. Though much of the production setup happens behind the scenes, passengers may see the Bliss Team extra busy on Day 1. Please allow them to do their jobs. They are highly committed to getting the ship ready. However, no matter the assignment, should any passenger require assistance or information, the Bliss Cruise Team Member is your best anchor and friend.

Blue and Yellow are Your Friends

Host couples are dressed in Bliss blue and have name badges. They're a wealth of information. If they don't have the answer to a question, they'll get it for you.

New: Bliss Security shirts have been changed from black to yellow.'s the Caribbean and it's hot out there. Also, in the unlikely event you need to consult security, it's helpful that their shirts are more visible at night.
