This morning, I disembarked from my very first cruise. We spent 3 nights on the Majesty of the Seas with ports in Coco Cay and Nassau before heading back to Miami. It was almost exactly how I imagined a cruise would be, and it was a ton of fun! Here are my 5 first impressions of cruising:
It impressed me how when you cruise, your vacation really can be any way you want it to be. There are activities throughout the day to enjoy on the ship, from dance classes to facial demonstrations to game shows. You can play basketball, try your luck in the casino, or swim in the pool. But if you don’t feel like going, going, going all day, you don’t have to. Because you can also do absolutely nothing. There were lots of people lounging around on deck chairs with a chilled drink, dipping their feet in the pool, or even taking a nap in their room (guilty). When you’re in port, you can come and go from the ship as you please. Even when it’s tendered, as long as you make it back in time for departure, you have the freedom to stay on the ship, or go to land, or a little bit of both.
