Coco Cay is Royal Caribbean's private island, so your excursions will be somewhat limited to what RC offers. Coco Cay is best viewed as a great beach day!
As for Nassau and Key West, I suggest you check out the detailed information that we have compiled on those ports at www.portreviews.com

The waverunner experience in COCO Cay is FANTASTIC!! My boyfriend and I shared a 2 seater for $89.00. It's a 50 minute wild ride that you should definately experience.

I just returned yesterday from my first cruise ever. It was one of my best vacations. I had such a great time that I didn't really want to get off the Majesty when it was time to disembark.

Anyway, in Nassau, we didn't sign up for excursions. We just took a cab to the Atlantis, bought a tour of the Dig and the resort itself, went back to the interesting spots, and then had lunch at one of the restaurants. All this took 3 hours. We then took a cab back to main shopping street, which is just a few blocks away from the wharf where the Majesty was docked. So it depends on what interests you. If you want to see more of Nassau, it might be good to join one of the city tours. If you want water activities, join one of the organized tours or just head to Cable Beach. I think Coco Cay is the place to be in the water and just lay around on the beach. My teenage niece and her friend went on the Waverunner and enjoyed the experience tremendously.

As for Key West, getting on the Conch Train or Trolley tours gives you a good overview of the city, if you've never been there before. One of our new-found friends did the snorkeling excursion and came back with very positive reviews.

I traveled with my sister, her daughter, and a friend. I'm in Arlington so if you have any other questions while the trip is very fresh in my mind, you may e-mail me at reh2os@yahoo.com.

Key West==========Snorkel one of the best reefs around. "or try SNUBA" it is GREAT!!!!
Instead of the trolly tour. rent a golf cart. 35.00 for 2 hours and you can see EVERYTHING at your own pace. It doesn't take a long time to see Key West. The cemetary is very neat AND HAUNTED.



Nassau ========= Paradise is the place to see. MANY, MANY people from our boat walked right into "The Dig" without paying. No one was even caring about tickets. Go to the casino and just browse your way in. No one was even around the entire thing.

COCOCAY =========== GET A HAMMOCK... get there early. Take a small box of cereal with you. Open it when you get in clear water "about 200ft. from shore" . WOOHOOO!!!! 1000's of fish to see.

We had a great time doing these things. StingRay City in Nassau is not worth the money. Kinda cool saying you petted a Ray, but I wouldn't do it again.
