This is truly the most awe inspiring and award winning cruise ship in the world.


 

There is always something fun to do on a cruise ship!

If you have never sailed on a ship like this before, you are in for a real treat. I have personally sailed on her twice before. From the moment I walked on to her my jaw dropped. I didn’t want to even get off at the ports of calls the ship was so amazing. I got cupcakes each day learned to decorate them. Strolled through Central Park with my husband. Got drinks on the elevator bar, went to the café each night for cookies. Laid in the swinging bed up top of the ship and watched the water pass. Then when we were done playing on the ship we soaked up the sunny weather at the pool where my lounger was in the water like we were at the beach, and read a good book. Then headed to the spa to melt away stess with the Royal Experience.


Jazz up your evening with Tony Award®-winning Broadway hit Hairspray,
or the beautiful show on Ice. Chose Comedy Live, or the Aquatic Show.

This ship is so amazing. There is never a dull moment on this ship. Something for every age, you can stay busy or do nothing at all but be pampered. At the days out to sea we will offer genealogy classes. You really don’t want to miss this cruise; it is the most exciting ship you will ever walk on. And why not share it with your family as you make memories with them.

Visitors to Falmouth will experience the revitalization of one of the first shipping ports in the Caribbean, with a rich heritage dating back more than 240 years. Falmouth flourished as a market center and port for decades when Jamaica was the world's leading sugar producer.

Most recent development includes a two-berth pier, retail establishments, restaurants and a transportation center. In the future, there will be onsite attractions and experiences, hotel and residential components along with additional retail and restaurant options.

The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

At Dolphin Cove you can watch the dolphins at play or walk through the jungle to see friendly birds and iguanas. 

Visit Good Hope Great House and tour one of the immaculately preserved homes on a former sugar plantation, which dates back to the 1770s and sits on over 2,000 acres. From dune buggy safaris and river tubing to a horse and buggy tour, you will find many activities to keep you entertained.

Cruise Port "Cozumel, Mexico"


Tour of the ancient Mayan ruins

On our 2004 Legacy Cruise we toured the ancient ruins of Chichén Itzá and Tulum. .  You can read about it from Dave Berdan’s Journal. “We docked about 7:00 in the morning. People then started getting off the ship to participate in the many tours and activities available there. We debarked at 7:30 to go on the Helaman tour of the ancient Mayan ruins in Chichén Itzá and Tulum.
Our tour started with a short taxi ride from the dock to downtown Playa de Carmen which is the port city on the island of Cozumel off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. From there we boarded a ferry that would take us to the mainland. We then got on two busses that took all 100 or so of us on a two-hour ride to Chichén Itzá.  Chichén Itzá is a fantastic place to explore. Helaman, our guide, is extremely knowledgeable about the culture and practices of the ancient Mayans and explained all the carvings and symbols they used. The highlight was the huge central Pyramid of Kukúlcan.

The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

Don't miss the opportunity to explore the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Tulúm, majestically perched above the turquoise Caribbean. The site was occupied as far back as 600 A.D. However, it was most densely populated around 1200 A.D. You will be struck by the pyramid-shaped El Castillo, which dominates the city from atop a forty-foot cliff. The nearby Temple of the Descending God provides equally excellent insight into the architecture of the Mayan people, who gained considerable achievements in the arts and sciences, only to decline and vanish for no apparent reason.

Other Fun Things to Do

·        Explore the underwater world of Chankanaab on a deep-sea adventure aboard the Atlantis Submarine.

·        Discover what makes a dolphin so magical as you play and interact with these amazing creatures in Chankanaab National Marine Park.

·        Sit back, relax, and bury your toes in the white sand of Playa Mia Beach in Cozumel. This destination offers all the food, drinks and activities you can imagine, including relaxing massages on the beach.

·        Take a Jeep®-safari adventure through the tropical landscape of Cozumel's east side. Ride through sand dunes and trails for an unforgettable experience.

·        Learn to prepare a Mexican feast and enjoy your culinary skills with Mexican wines and a festive atmosphere.

·        Escape to the secluded beauty of your own private beach paradise, Passion Island.

Sporting Adventures

·        Experience snow-white bunkers and breathtaking views as you play a memorable round of golf on the championship course at the Cozumel Country Club.

·        Snorkel in the clear sapphire-colored water around Cozumel's coral reefs. It's a snorkeler's dream, and one of the world's premier snorkeling destinations. Equipment, instruction and guidance begin at Sand Dollar Beach. From there, you'll be able to enjoy everything your eyes behold for as long as you like, with transportation ready and waiting to take you back to your ship.

·        Take in the views of the north side of the island while skimming through the water in your two-person speed boat.

Shopping for Bargains

Regarded as the "St. Thomas of the Western Caribbean," Cozumel has become one of the world's best duty-free shopping ports. Cozumel offers unbelievable prices on diamonds, colored gemstones, jewelry, watches, gold, sterling silver, and even Oriental rugs as well as Mexican housewares and handicrafts. You can find designer jewelry pieces and watches from C2K, Caribbean Hook, Honora, House of Tanzanite, John Hardy, Kabana, La Nouvelle Bague, Starnight, White Diamonds, Cartier, Concord, Maurice Lacroix, Michele, Movado and more.

Cruise Port "Ft Lauderdale, Florida"


The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

People have been flocking to Fort Lauderdale's beaches for decades. And with good reason. Fort Lauderdale Beach is a two-mile strip of beautiful beach featuring the recently renovated Promenade, which offers all sorts of bars, restaurants and shops.

Other Fun Things to Do

·        Take a 30-minute airboat ride across the Everglades, one of the most breathtaking natural areas in America. Discover a variety of fish and birds that inhabit the area, and perhaps see the most famous Everglades inhabitant - the alligator. Enjoy Sawgrass Reptile Exhibit after your ride and take the opportunity to touch or possibly hold a small alligator. Discover the replica of a Seminole Indian village. See tropical birds, rare snakes, and even the endangered Florida panther.

·        Take a narrated drive through Port Everglades over the Intercoastal Waterway and along the famous Fort Lauderdale Beach. Explore the International Swimming Hall of Fame, Las Olas Boulevard, the Riverwalk area and more. Stop and see Esplanade Park, the crossroads of the Center for Performing Arts and the Museum of Discovery and Science. Take a 90-minute Intercoastal Waterway cruise, and hear a lively commentary from the boat's captain on the history of the New River and Fort Lauderdale's historic sites.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

Fish is fresh and delicious in Florida. Grouper is probably the most popular choice and is served almost any way imaginable. You'll find it fried, broiled, sautéed, and even served with pasta. But a true Floridian staple is a fresh grouper sandwich and fries eaten outside by the water. It's hard to beat this old standby.

Destinations Nearby: Hollywood, Florida

Named one of Fodor's Best Beaches for Families, Hollywood South Beach features a boardwalk dotted with restaurants and six miles of white sand beach. North Beach boasts several unique eco-adventures including the Sea Turtle Hatchery.
