There was great service and just an amazing time. I proposed to my girlfriend on our cruise and it was just the most amazing experience. We swam at cococay and shopped at Nassau. We would definitely cruise again.
My favorite part of the cruise was sailing on the ship, and going to the private island of COCOCAY. The water and beach at COCOCAY were beautiful. The water was crystal clear, and the resort area was very well maintained.
Our room was sufficient, and was kept up very nicely by Del. He was so very kind and always had a smile on his face, and was so very helpful - always answering every question, and greeting us with a smile. Meeting Del was our second favorite part of the cruise.
The ship was nice, clean, and very well maintained.
The smoking in the casino was annoying.
The gentleman that played the electric guitar in the lounge was outstanding.
He was our third favorite. We would have liked to hear more.
The comedy and other shows were very good, and the MC - Mark was very good and funny.
Overall we would recommend this cruise to others - but will also talk to them about the food.
The crew were top notch, everyone helpful, friendly, smiling. Shows good. Ship on the older side and needs updating. Dining Room service wonderful, but the food came out a bit on the lukewarm side. Side trips fun.
My husband and I have been on many cruise with multiple different cruise lines and this by far was the worst one. We booked 6 cabins on this boat and took our employees on a appreciation trip. For many of my employees this was their first experience on a cruise. We purchased drink cards for everyone so no one would have to worry about anything while being on vacation.
Let's start with the drink cards! First they say it is unlimited however they will cut you off when you've had about 6 to 7 drinks throughout the day ( no one in our group ever got cut off but I saw many people that did) I witnessed the bar staff shut people's cards off because they were tired and wanted to close the bar down. I also witnessed them speaking so rudely to people that just would ask a question. They would talk down to you like you are beneath them. On one occasion we were all sitting at the pool bar just hanging out talking and they literally shut the bar down on one of my employees heads. There was no " I'm sorry", "excuse me" or anything said when that happened. Later that night we hear what sounded like a great party going on down below us, when I looked down to see what it was I saw that same employee dancing with other boat staff. I guess he was in such a hurry to get to the employee party and that's why he could have cared less about serving us. Please do not get me wrong I fully understand these people work very hard and absolutely deserve time off to relax also but do not treat us like shit just so you can go party.
Lets talk about the waiting staff in the main dining room. Like I said I have been on many cruises and the dining room has always been my favorite. Normally they will put on a show and treat you like royalty, not on this boat. The last night we were introduced to the kitchen staff but that's all they did. We felt so rushed through everything. We had the 8:30 dining time so it's not like there were people waiting to eat behind us. I guess they wanted to go party!
Many people save a long time to be able to take a vacation like this. All you hear is how you are treated like royalty when you are on the boat. However that is not the case with this cruise line. We felt like a nuisance more than anything the entire time. I can only hope this is not the case on a normal basis. We will not ever book with Royal Caribbean again.
If you are looking for a short cruise from a port that is easy to get to and is not overly crowded the Port Canaveral location is very nice. We parked using the Raddison parking which we reserved and paid for on line. The shuttle to and from was very good. The arrival procedure could be improved by the port. We spent 10-minutes in the bus waiting to off load. Once on the ship the rooms were ready and the ship had lunch ready. We were in a Royal Family Suite which is two bedroom/bath. I am glad our other family members cancelled. The suite was nice but would have been uncomfortable for (4) adult persons. It was a narrow rectangle shape and with anyone sitting at the desk chair no one could get by to go to the other bedroom and bath The stall showers were small but adequate but much better than a high rail tub The raised toilets were fantastic and easier to rise from. The temperature control for the room was very poor. A maintenance man finally got it repaired on the third day and we put away our blankets that we sat around wrapped in. The balcony was very nice but the view from the 10th deck is life boats below. Straight out we had a good view but the view straight down was poor. We have never noticed that in the past so it must be the design of an older ship. One of us was sick with a very painful leg strain so we did not take tours this time since we had seen Nassau on other cruises. The Bingo on board was well run but rather strangely played. We all arrived to play Bingo and they only played one game at each session except for the last day. When compared to other Bingo games on other ships I would rate this game as a 5 out of 10. The internet was quite fast most of the time but the TV cable is a disgrace. More than half the channels are RCL company channels or non-english speaking channels with only one news channel. The VOOM network is the best internet I have used on a ship but it was a little to slow to run my sling box player from my home network. The dining was excellent in the dining room. Outstanding service and the Windjammer buffet was very good. We only tried the Mexican Speciality Restaurant and we will not go there again on that ship. The food was good but way over priced at $18/person. We thought we ordered the house margarita but it turned out to be $15 margaritas. Probably the most expensive Mexican meal I have ever had. The on board shows and musicals were similar to what we had seen on the Freedom of the Seas a few weeks earlier so we did not attend those shows. After we once got off the bus at the ship the check-in procedure on the ship as well as the departure procedure on the ship were excellent. If you rent a suite the afternoon happy hour and the special suite breakfast were excellent and well served by the staff.
this was our 1st cruise and we loved it. We had fantastic weather the entire time. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The bartenders make great drinks and we highly recommend the drink package!
My first cruise so we decided to take a short. Majesty of the Seas at one time was probably a grand ship. The crew was excellent -a 5 star plus. Ashton, head server, and Alexis, assistant server, went above and beyond - EXCELLENT!
The staterooms were small but usable. The ship was in good but old - lacked what the newer ship offer. The entertainment was great - the performers were very good with a lot of high energy.
If if you want a nice cruising experience - try this one!
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.
