Just O.K.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 19, 2015

THE FOOD SUCKS.  HORRIBLE FOOD.  Cabin, fine.  Only got to visit one island due to the weather.  Not enough shows, activities.

 

STAFF was GREAT.

 

Will try again just maybe a different ship.  I don't know I have never been so disappointed in food in my life.  My son lived off of fruit for the entire 3 days because he hated everything, and he is not a child he is a grown 19 year old.  Eggs, bacon, even the dining room food, SUCKED.  sorry but true

First Time Royal Caribbean Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 19, 2015

This was my first time cruising with R.C. was just like every other cruise I've been on. Nothing stands out as anything great. My only complaint was that the hot tubs closed at 6:00ish every night. Who does that? Always love heading to the hot tub after dinner but not on this ship. Best of all, they don't have the schedule of closings posted anywhere. You are supposed to know to ask the towel attendant for the schedule.

However, I do recommend purchasing the drink package. I got the Ultimate Package. I thought $55 a day was kind of steep but I definitely got my money's worth in top shelf drinks and every other beverage option as well. Starbucks is included if you have a slight caffeine addiction like some of us.

Highly disappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2015

My family and I were highly disappointed.   After counting down the days, we ended up not as happy as we thought we would be.  But, we tried to make the best of it.   We had planned all the things that we wanted to do at each port.  We only ended up going to Nassau.  The Atlantis never disappoints.  We had a great time there.  Thinking we were going CocoCay and Key West.  Those two ports never transpired and we were left for the rest of our cruise staying on the ship with not so great weather and whilst it's not the cruise lines fault of the weather, we feel passengers should have been compensated in some sort and not left with a sour taste of how amazing cruising.  I'm most upset that my children didn't get the full experience we wanted them to have.  Don't know if we want to cruise again.

WORST VACATION EVER

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2015

If I could give this review a rating of zero, I would.  The itinerary was to go to Nassau, Coco Cay and Key West.  The captain didn't feel it was safe enough to tender in Coco Cay so we slowly went on to Key West only for him to tell us at 8am he turned around and was headed back to Miami due to 35 mph winds. Really?  Last cruise I went on, we docked during tropical storm Alberto and all was fine. Very disappointed, no compensation what so ever.  The captain knows the weather conditions in advance and could have at least stayed in Nassau or gone to Key West a day early......something. It was a total waste and I am hoping to get refunded.

Terrible weather = terrible cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2015

I have been on 3 cruises and this was the worst.  Bad weather forced us to miss 2 of the 3 ports of call.  While I understand that the cruise line is not responsible for the weather, I do hold them accountable for providing a quality on-board experience to compensate for missing our ports of call. Although the captain assured us that our safety was his primary concern for not docking at the ports, he did not communicate with us during the last 12 hours of the ship in which we endured the worst waves on the trip. When we arrived in Miami, where it was 41 degrees, the captain remained silent and left it to the crew to apologize for the miserable trip.  Not only did we miss our ports of call, but the on-board activities were meager and most were held on the atrium of the ship, which had a tiny stage and no seats. We were forced to look over the 3 decks above the atrium to watch the show and most were forced to sit on the floor!  There are 2 large well-equipped lounges on-board, that remained empty while we squeezed around the atrium.  I don't understand why we didn't have a line dancing show in the Spectrum Lounge.  It is clear that there have been cut-back's in on-board entertainment.  There was only 1 night for the comedian and the piano bar was only open 2 of the 4 nights. Would it have cost the cruise more money to have a DJ to run a dance club each night?  There was nothing to do! Not only did we not get to stop at Coco Cay or Key West but we had to remain imprisoned on the boat for 3 rough days at sea going at a snail's pace to sail up and down the Florida coast.  It only takes a few hours to drive from Miami to Key West.  It took us 24 hours!  What else could they do? They were not allowed to return to Miami until 7:30 a.m. the last day. The cold weather meant that we couldn't use the pool or even go out on the decks.  It felt like a prison.  I will never go on a cruise again.

Nice getaway!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2015

Unfortunately weather was a huge factor in this cruise experience.  Because of WIND the ship was unable to dock at Coco Bay and at Key West.  So for a 4 day cruise, not being able to get into 2 ports was very disappointing. Apparently this happens often enough at Coco Bay that the ship has already planned alternative activities to entertain the cruise goers.  To Royal Carribean's credit, the activities are well-planned, fun and throughout the day.  However, if this is something that happens enough, I feel it may be time to retire this ship and use a larger vessel.  

As far as the ship itself, it's on the small side.  This is more noticeable when you are docked in ports beside others. And it's a little dated as far as decor. Poolside seating wasn't adequate for the # of people on ship.  Go to the pool early and save yourself a chair.

The staff was fabulous.  You will want for nothing.  My room was tended to 3 times per day.  The waitstaff were friendly and accomodating.  The entertainment was fun-trivia, bingo, line dancing, quest, wine tasting, art auction, and their own "flea market"..

Food was good but the portions at the evening meal were small.  Don't know if you could ask for seconds but most people at my table did room service later in the evening because they were hungry.  However, the buffets were good and had many choices.  Healthy choices too.

Beverages were expensive.  The drink packages are per day and over the top for someone who just has an occasional drink. So although my beverage bills were not high,  $10.00 for a mixed drink, $5.00 for water and soda, are somewhat pricey.  

All in all the cruise was fun.  It was a chance to relax, be waited on for a few days, have someone cook and clean for me, and be entertained.  I will most likely try cruising again.

Disappointed with RC

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 15, 2015

Instructed to arrive at pier at 2pm, arrived 15 min early.  Soon as we boarded, stopped in stateroom to drop bags.  Went immediately to Windjammer for buffet lunch, only to be told it had closed at 2:45 . Only food available was cold pizza.

Due to poor weather, we only visited 1 of our 3 scheduled ports.  Problem no one communicated any possibility until our scheduled arrival times.  If know earlier, we would have adjusted our onboard schedules.  Also, given the disappointing lack of port visits, there was no attempt to do anything special for passengers.

Last, food quality & quantity in dining room was inadequate .

The least enjoyable of all cruises we've taken, but still fun and relaxing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 09, 2015

Pros: Overall good staff (our room attendant and dinner service was impecable); clean boat; decent food; warmer than Ohio. Cons: Old boat showing age; I typically enjoy the complimentary spa services like steam room and sauna. The steam room on the Majesty was pitiful. Big enough for about 2 people and stunk like mildew; having to choose between 6:30 and 9 PM (unless you pay extra $) for dinning time is a little ridiculous; entertainment was pretty boring - not a single entertainer impressed me; bad weather forced us into pants and sweatshirts; missing a port-of-call due to high winds was EXTREMELY disappointing because the boat was rather boring; only two hot tubs always at capacity by travelers under 20 years of age; food was decent (6/10), but IDENTICAL to food we ate on the Jewel of the Seas last year. A specific negative was that we could not receive reimbursement for an excursion we booked on the boat: At Key West, my wife and I decided to book (through the cruise) and trolley tour of the island. The cruise advertised they had the lowest price for the trolley, so we picked up two tickets. Ended up costing us around $50 total. Unfortunately, We didn't know that another member of our party had already booked scooters for us. I immediately returned to the boat (about 45 minutes after buying the trolley tickets) to request reimbursement. It was promptly denied without exception. The silver lining is that it was only $50 and not hundreds. I just wish Royal would have worked with us a little - come on, we had JUST bought the tickets. Also, the boat advertised they had the lowest price for the trolley. This is false. Do not book excursions through the boat unless you are a little hesitant of exploring new places, because you WILL pay more. Synopsis: Will never visit the Bahamas again, will NEVER travel on the Majesty of the Seas again, BUT we had a good time with friends and didn't have to think about work. If I could award 2.5 stars I would. I would say that we had a good experience, but wouldn't recommend this cruise. Certainly not in February.

Short Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 09, 2015

 I had been on this cruise before and enjoyed it, I was taking a first time cruiser and wanted a cruise that wasn't very long to see if they would enjoy a cruise.  It has fun Ports of Call and a very fun private island (Coco Cay), she really enjoyed the cruise and is looking forward to taking another.  The only suggestion I would make is since I am not a smoker, have designated smoking areas, it seemed like every time we sat down on the lounge chairs by the pool the people next to us would light up.  This is a very relaxing and fun cruise.

Try to participate in as much activities as possible. Before you realize, the cruise is over, because everything goes so fast! There is too much to do.

There are two areas in the buffet. Go to the one in the back. It's not as busy until the last couple days when everyone else figures out to go back there. If there are no seats in the dining area, go upstairs to Sorrentos for more seating and it's less busy.

We were glad that we purchased our excursions ahead of time. We did purchase the Coco Cay Stingray Excursion on ship right as we entered the ship when the lines were short. Otherwise the lines always seemed to be long. We chose to carry our luggage off ship the morning of departure...shorter wait.
