These are links to my cruise pics from Sovereign:
April 27 cruise:
Sovereign is a great ship. Maybe not as new and "perfect" as many of the brand new ships, but I love Her!
Since you are not planning on taking a credit card, you will have to open a cash account when you check-in because all purchases on the ship are exclusively put on your Sea Pass card. Purchases like gifts, drinks, ship photos, forfot your razor? You can buy all kinds of stuff in the gift shop... anything you buy on the ship will go on your Sea Pass.
I am sure there are many excursions that are available in Nassau that are not mentioned on RCCL website, you will be harassed by the locals to do them, be sure of that. Traffic there is *insane* and probably not safe to do the moped renals, just my opinion.
Tuxedo rentals on board the ship, in the very back of the Cruise Vacation documents is lists:
Classic Black Tuxedo $85
Black formal shoes $12
Classic Paisley Vest and Tie set $15
Pair of socks $6
Ralph Lauren Vest set $20
You can order 2 weeks before cruising
