If you have read my previous blogs, you will know sailing the Caribbean is my favourite holiday. Trying new cruise lines, new islands and meeting new people is my idea of a great holiday. So, this time, August 2015, we decided to travel from England to Miami to embark on TWO Caribbean cruises.
Royal Caribbean is my favourite cruise line of all time. I have sailed the Caribbean with them numerous times on their biggest ships and now, I was set to embark their oldest, smallest ship in the fleet; The Majesty of the Seas. This was a 4 night Bahamas cruise leaving from Miami. We had an ocean view (port hole) cabin on deck 2!! After traveling on the bigger, newer ships and staying in mostly balcony and suite category of cabins, myself and partner were quite nervous about the cabin and its position.
After a very easy and stress-free embarkation at the Port of Miami, we were on the ship. Greeted by a very grand foyer, and the smiling staff of Royal Caribbean, we felt at home immediately.
We got ourselves a drink from the bar and headed to our stateroom to check out what we would be staying in for the best part of a week…….
HOW WRONG WERE WE!!!!!
We found our cabin (2570) right besides the elevators on deck 2 and we were very pleased with what we found. The beds were separated which didn’t bother us at all, and there was more than enough space to sleep and get ready for 5 days.
I don’t think the ship was at full occupancy for this sailing, which made getting a sunbed extremely easy. Usually it can be difficult to find a sunbed on a sea day, but there was plenty of empty beds to choose from.
The ship is kept to a high standard as are all Royal Caribbean ships, there is no way you would think she is 23 years old. Refurbished in 2007, the ship is a great ship! I would very happily go back on this ship for another cruise.
Our 4 night sailing took us to Nassau, Bahamas – Cococay, Bahamas – Key West, Florida.
Cococay is the cruise lines private island and is a must for all passengers that are sailing here. You will be tendered from the ship to the island as the ship will drop anchor. There is no dock here.
Keeping in with the Bahamas style with bright colours and steel drums playing – The staff on board will take to the island to pre-pare a very big beach B-B-Q. They have bars here too, where your drinks package is of course still valid!
Excursions are offered here, or you can just relax and take in the beautiful island with a cocktail in your hand. Don’t forget your sun cream, its extremely hot here!!
After my 4 night cruise on board the Majesty, I was returning to Miami for 1 night at the Mondrian Hotel before embarking the Norwegian Getaway – my first NCL cruise…. Check back on my blog to see how I got on.
