BLISS Charters and Lifestyles Cruise® proudly announces the return of the INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS for the November 2018 cruise charter! Back by popular demand no less. The couples who previously cruised on the Independence of the Seas really missed the Promenade. The Promenade is a very open section in the center of the ship that very much appears like a retail shopping mall in the French Quarter. Retail stores. restaurants, bars, pubs and a Starbucks-like cafe. But what a social mecca. The Promenade is where everyone hangs out at night after dinner to watch the exciting aerial shows and mingle around socializing with other couples. And don't forget the Promenade cabins. These are "Inside Cabins" that have a window facing into the Promenade area. You can see everything that is happening below .. and everyone below can see everything you are doing above.

The Independence of the Seas has been newly renovated and upgraded with many new cabins, including what we call the "Panoramic Cabins" positioned in a curve around the front of the ship in lieu of rectangles all in a row. This cabin configuration is very new for cruise ships. The Independence has many huge suites, and exquisite cabins, complete with butler service and ready to spoil you to no end. The ship is amazing, as you will never be without something to do. Each floor has a monitor that shows you exactly where you are and all of the events that are happening all over the decks, night clubs, show rooms and play rooms.

If you enjoy the land based, lifestyle-friendly resorts, you will really love the allure and excitement of a 5-Star cruise ship hosting your vacation. There will be thousands of other like minded people on this ship, just waiting to meet with you and the better half for a fun-filled seven nights at sea and exciting ports of call. The fun and action just never seems to stop. Beginning with the night before the cruise at the hotel Meet & Greet party, all the way through seven nights out on the ocean with nightly theme parties and late night clubs, this will be a vacation you will soon not forget.

As usual, Lifestyles Cruises have the largest play rooms on the oceans. Converted and ready for action by the after dinner hours, the Independence playrooms can accommodate about two hundred people at a time, and consistently manned by efficient and friendly host couples ready to help you find a spot and provide new linens.

THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM as they say. Any couple that reserves their cabin in the "Early Bird Promotion" days will receive a FREE HOTEL ROOM the night before, also enjoying a FREE Meet & Greet Party to meet and socialize with new friends. Just entry the PROMO CODE of "FREEHOTEL" when you book your cabin. Don't wait until all the best cabins are taken. Get a deposit on the cabin of your choice.

What are the US Passport requirements?
As of June 1, 2010, per the US State department, all United States citizens now NEED A PASSPORT to return to the United States following a cruise. To avoid problems, the cruise line will not allow you to embark without a valid passport! Don't try it because there are no refunds if you are not allowed to board the ship.
 
This is a November 2015 cruise, so you have plenty of time to apply for your United States passport, or update your non-US Passport. Non-US citizens are responsible to verify if you will need a Visa for your specific nationality.

What Gratuities are included in the gratuities and port charges
All dining and stateroom gratuities are included in your additional charges fees. This eliminates all of the envelope gratuities payments from past cruise experiences. Alcoholic beverages, soda, and coffee drinks are not included in the gratuities, therefore Century Cruises will automatically add 15% to each of your individual bar tabs.
 
Additional tips are always welcome for the crew members that go the extra mile for you, especially your bartenders and room stewards.

What are the rules of conduct on-board?
This is considered an OFF PREMISE VACATION PARTY. We want you to clearly understand the terms to which we have agreed with the cruise line to bring you this unique Lifestyles Cruise® Experience.

  • Nudity will be allowed at all pool areas and spa tubs while you are on board the ship. Nudity is not allowed in any food area except the pool deck snack bars. (when docked at a port, clothing is required)
  • NO SEX in front of cruise line employees! This includes the hundreds of cameras around the ship!
  • Discretion should be exercised with public displays of affection (PDA's) Security will be strong at this event. You will be removed from the ship at the next port if you are caught having any sex in public areas! This is very embarrassing, so please don''t break the rules. Dedicated "Play Rooms"and your stateroom should be used for sexual activity.
  • The Playrooms will be open every day with set times to be announced.

Anything else will jamb up the vacuum toilet system and your neighbors will not like you much!
  • Sexually explicit games are fun, just remember there are limits to how far you can take it when in public and being watched by the security cameras. We want you to have fun, just use discretion so we are allowed back next year.
  • For the comfort of the cruises staff, all cabin doors must be closed.
  • Under no circumstances is the ship's crew allowed to fraternize with the passengers. This is grounds for immediate dismissal of the crew member.
