Hi everybody

Me and my girlfriend are going on a cruise for 3 days in april on Majesty of the seas to nassau and coco-cay. I understood that this ship was refurbished lately.

Can anyone who went on a cruise on this ship after they refurbished it, give his opinion on the cruise, ill appriciate that.

My 2nd question is, if anyone can please recommend on a nice and cheap hotel in miami in a nice area that is not so far from the port. i an going to be in miami only for 1 night, something about $50-$100 a night hotel would be great.


Thanks in advance

Welcome mazinya! :wave

One of my co-workers is on the Magesty right now and I'll ask her how she liked it this week.

As far as a hotel, Priceline is a good option for something decent under $100. It's cheaper to stay near the airport than downtown or near the port. If you chose to stay near MIA, you can set up a shuttle service to take you to the port the next day for around $12-14pp. You can check pricing of wins on biddingfortravel.com and see what people are getting for 4*-3* hotels.

Hope this helps.

A question about the formal cloths. Do i realy need to wear a suite for dinner?? is that mandatory?

We do not plan to bring anything formal for dinner. I am packing my "little black dress", along with 2 skirts and tops but thats it. The black dress with shawl will be for the formal night. If you have a semi-formal dress that should do fine, or maybe a nice skirt and top. I don't think a suit is necessary, but someone else here may feel differently. When I was on a 7 night cruise with carnival, I thought I overdressed for formal night, never again.

Hi there, we are cruising on the same ship for 3 days as well, I'd love to hear anything you find out...
Also wondering if anyone knows of a way to get into Atlantis with full access other than purchasing a room for the night - can you get a day pass??

I would like to know the answer to that too. Atlantis looks amazing and i would like to go there.

I was thinking about doing one of the things you can do in this cruise like swimming with dolphins or the jetski or the parasailing and i was thinking about doing the swimming with dolphins which is i think the most expensive one... any one did this and can recommend on it?

Thanks

Actually, I used to work on the Carnival Fantasy which used to stop in Nassau and Freeport, and let me tell you, I LOVED swimming with the dolphins! It was amazing...only thing is, you'll have to make sure it's not just a dolphin "encounter" where you stand there and the dolphin swims up to you and you pet it. The dolphin swim is where the dolphins actually push you through the water, you feed it and pet it, and get a kiss from it...very neat. Although this was 10 years ago...maybe it's changed, I know that the Blue Lagoon Island (right next to it) shut down its beaches due to a hurricaine in 2004, so hopefully it's still nice there. Check out the website...http://www.dolphinencounters.com/index.htm
I would recommend it though.
On another note, when are you going? We're sailing Easter Weekend, and we too are going a day early for Miami. Still looking into a hotel right now.

Hi, thanks for the recommendation! I think i will call the royal carebbean and ask them what exactly am i going to do with the dolphins.

We are going on the 13th to 16th, which means we will be in miami on the 12th.
