Majesty of the Seas
August 20-24, 2001

My latest trip was a Royal Caribbean cruise to Nassau, Coco Cay and Key West with my friend Giselle. We went during peak hurricane season, but luckily, Tropical Storm Chantal decided to go to the south, rather than head for Miami, so we were safe.  We also made the wise decision not to do any snorkeling, as there were eight people bitten by sharks off the Florida coast in the five days before we left! Yikes!

Before the cruise, I went to a conference at the Lowes Miami Beach Hotel & Resort - what an amazing place!  I had a nice corner room overlooking the ocean, but of course, I forgot to take pictures :(  Then Gigi came down and we spent a weekend relaxing by the pool in Ft. Lauderdale before boarding the ship on Monday.

Can't see it too well, but this is the walkway to the beach, with the statue (see left) at your back.

DAY 1: On board Majesty of the Seas - cabin #5077

Leaving Miami - I think I called my brother at
this point to gloat!

First stop, the Viking Crown Lounge, 14th floor

DAY 2: View of the boat from a skiff in Nassau, which took us to the beach (see next pic)

Blackbeard's Cay, where I swam in the ocean for the FIRST time! :)

Day 3: Beach at Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean's private island.

Sorry, no beach pictures!


Also Day 3: Midnight Extravaganza Buffet - Gigi didn't believe me when I told her it was incredible!

We didn't eat a thing!
