Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Majesty of the Seas Southern Caribbean August, 2000
This was our first cruise and I used Cruisemates for so much information I felt I had to submit my review for other first timers. We sailed on the Majesty Of The Seas out of San Juan and did the Southern swing (Aruba, Curacao, St. Martin, St. Thomas). I had heard so much hype on cruises I couldn't believe it could be as good as everyone said.
It was. What a great time we had. We only did one shore excursion thru the ship (Aruba tour) and basically rented taxi's and did our own thing the rest of the trip. We shopped and went to the beach on every island. My favorite beach was Orient Beach in St. Martin. I thought Megan's Bay in St. Thomas was overrated. The ship was spectacular, for as many people as it holds we never felt crowded. The food, service, and entertainment was great. We are talking about going back in two years.
