When we awoke the next morning, Chad had arrived back in the room, and was asleep in his bunk (read part 3 to see why Chad was out so late). Chase, Heather, and I headed to grab some breakfast, and left Chad to sleep.
There were two options for breakfast on Majesty of the Seas: the Windjammer has a breakfast buffet on Deck 11, and the Starlight dining room on Deck 4 has a table service breakfast menu. We opted for the Starlight option where I enjoyed Eggs Benedict, my favorite breakfast item! After breakfast we met up with Chad, and headed ashore to explore Nassau, Bahamas.
Before the trip we had looked at the various excursions that were available in Nassau. We were interested in the aquapark at Atlantis, but it was so expensive we could not even consider it. The other excursion options were either not real interesting to everyone in our family, or too expensive. In the end, we decided to just check out the Nassau shopping area, and then “wing it” from there.
After walking around for an hour or so everyone decided they would much rather just hang out on the boat for the rest of the day. So, after buying a few souvenirs we headed back aboard, and settled in at the pool.
The good news is that since almost everyone else had gotten off the boat, we had no problem finding some prime pool chairs. Chase, Heather and I ended up hanging there all day while Chad disappeared again to hang out with his “Cruise Homies”. I even got in the pool with Chase at one point, and while it was initially a bit cool, it ended up being pretty refreshing. However, no amount of pleading or cajoling by Chase and I was getting Heather in any further than her legs!
One quick note in case it matters to you. The pools on the ship are salt water. Not a problem for us other than Chase complaining about it burning his eyes, but I thought I would mention it in the event it helps anyone else with planning their trip.
The balance of the day was spent taking naps, reading, eating lunch, and people watching. Before long the ship was filling back up, and we were casting off on our way to to Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas… Cocoa Cay.
