Flag of Bahamas  , New Providence Island,
Friday, June 26, 2009

Ever since grandma and grandpa treated Moira, Rusty and I (plus our kids) to a 3 day Bahamas cruise last year (http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/a3dennert/11/1216673820/tpod.html) Rebecca, Christopher and Hubert keep asking when will they get to go on "Grandmas big boat" again   :o)

So Rusty and I decided now is the time to do so again. Prices are good and summer time is here. We booked our cruise on Royal Carribeans Majesty of the Seas that sails 6/26 through 6/29 from Miami. We made stops in Cococay (http://www.royalcaribbean.com/findacruise/ports/group/home.do?portCode=CCA), and in Nassau. Grandma and Grandpa decided to join us at the last minute, which we were very happy about.

Departure day was overcast and rainy, but that did not stop the kids and I to enjoy the pool and the view from the top deck as we left Miami. That is until the lightning started coming down around us and then it was time to take cover.

The kids enjoyed the onboard camp "Adventure Ocean" at which they played, painted, had a "everybody's" birthday party, and pirate night. They also loved the pool and the self serve ice cream machine that offered you all the ice cream you could eat - and they had allot of ice cream - LOL.

Cococay was great. This is Royal Caribbeans private island on which they have a nice beach, all types of amenities for young and old. An all you can eat bbq lunch buffet is served on the island so there is no need to go back to the ship until departure time.

In Nassau we briefly walked through downtown and then got back on the ship and I enjoyed the pool with the 3 kids while everyone else took a siesta. Downtown Nassau is nothing special - shops, shops, shops, and we had thought of going to Paradise Island, however after a full day on the beach in Cococay the day before we opted to skip it this day.

The ship was packed to capacity. Food was good, Amenities were good, Service was good, Drinks were great, but pricy, the onboard gym was very good, and the seas were smooth. I speak for everyone when I say that this was another memorable outing.
