Just returned fron 10 days on Galaxy, WOW.! Being first time cruisers we wern't sure what to expect, but this ship and crew were incredible. Even the formal nights (which I was dreading) turned out to be a great deal of fun. Our waiters Severino and Alvaro made us feel like royalty, they even went out of their way to make our kids feel special(my 9 year old cried the last night, because he was going to miss them, he is even carrying their picture with him everywhere.)
The activities staff were wonderful, there was so much to do on board it was impossible to do everything, except plenty of eating.
We chose not to do any ship excursions,however we did book a cave tubing tour with regtours.com in Belize
It was an extension of the courtesy of the ship, Reggies son was super,very knowledgable and friendly and our group of 8 had the river and caves to ourselves.(The ship tours had 100 plus people)The jungle and caves are absolutely beautiful!
Most other places we did things on our own, Key West is easy to walk and Cozumel is easy with Taxi rides wherever you need to go. Nassau is filled with taxi drivers who will give you a tour at very reasonable rates(23.00 per person) for a 2 hour tour of the island ( very interesting and informative),he even allowed us to shop in some outlying areas at big savings over closer areas to the ship.
Overall our first time was an amazing experience, which we are eager to repeat, we are going again next year.
