May 2014 - Majesty of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas
We had a fun time on this cruise, but as cruises often do, they try to sell you extra stuff from the moment you board until the moment you leave. The drink package would have been $55 per day, per person, but we opted out and ended up spending about $17 per person, per day. If you budget correctly, you can have fun pretty cheap. The ports were nice. Nassau was fun. Typical for a Caribbean town. High pressured sales tactics, but if you can avoid that, you are fine. CocoCay was really fun and the water was beautiful. We were really disappointed with Royal Caribbean there because we wanted to rent snorkel equipment, but you had to rent all of the gear (Vest, fins, snorkel) and it cost $33 per person TOTAL RIPOFF! Buy your own gear and take it with you. The snorkeling was fun as they had a sunken boat, and plane. Very pretty. Key West was our favorite. Very quaint and nice people. The ship had plenty of activities and although I thought 4 days would feel short, it was plenty! It was hard to find transportation from the ship to FLL airport, so we did the excursion from the ship to the everglades airboat tour and to gator park and then they took you to the airport after. It was very fun! Highly recommend for families.
