Default Just booked...first time cruisers!

We just booked a 5 day Bahama Cruise on Majesty of the Seas, August 10th 2009. We are first time cruisers and we're going for our honeymoon!

Any advice and tips would be welcome. We've been looking at excursions but some that we'd really like to do (dolphin swimming etc) seem so pricey!

Welcome to the wonderful world of cruising. Be warned, though, you will get hooked!

If you have specific questions, ask, and someone on this site will have an answer.

Regarding excursions......are you looking at Royal Caribbean's excursions? If so, you may want to search the web for the same excursion offered by a local company. Nine times out of ten, they will be cheaper than if you purchase them from RCI. However, you should be aware of one thing.....if you book from a local company, and, for instance, the bus/car taking you back to the ship breaks down, and you are late getting to the port, the ship may leave without you. If, however, you booked through RCI, they will hold the ship for you. Just something you should be aware of.

It's your honeymoon, so u should make sure that everything you want to do, u can do. You only have one chance to make this the perfect wedding and honeymoon. If you want to swim with the dolphins than you should do that. Majesty was my first cruise and we cruised the caribbean. It was a great ship and we had a wonderful time. Ask as many questions about the ship, shore excursions, and the itinerary. You will get a lot of good answers that will help you with your decisions.
