Well I have a couple of thoughts for you. Being your first cruise I would ask your Travel Agent for the brochure from RCCL Europe and read all the information in the back of the book it does address tipping, dress etc. Loads of great information. Look at the excursion on line in RCCL's web site. The excursions will say if an option is the beach. This is just my opinion but I would stick to booking with the Cruise and you won't have to worry about anything except having fun if this is your first cruise ! A very nice one too I might add ! :OD
