The private beach was my and my daughter's favorite. For the first time on the cruise the food was good. Most of the trip the food was bland. I leave in New York so Im used to extremely great cuisine. The ship also needs many upgrades carpeting paint chipping and plumbing are some of the things that needs to be looked at. Of course the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
it seems like all you guys cared about was selling drinks, you guys push for like crazy, that was very annoying!!!! I understand thats how you guys make you money but you cant push for it so hard and say it on the PA system.
Casino staff are horrible!!! they dont smile they are rude, the ship windows were dirty I see rust everywhere. Ive been on carnival few times and I enjoyed their cruise way more than this one, staff dont smile some of them were great, the guy who cleaned our room was nice, dinning room for the dinner was excellent, food was not too impressive. food in the buffet was excellent as well.
The service was great. The dinning room food was good. The buffets were average. The headliners were great. The dancing and singing show was average. The ship was well kept for an older ship. If wanted, the facilities and activities can keep you busy.
Favorite part was dinner/food/service - excellent. Improvement needed for pool accommodations - 1 pool for too many people. Lounge chairs hard to get into because of being tied down - which we understand but made it hard to use. Yes we would definitely recommend going on a cruise to friends/family. Would recommend Majesty of the Seas.
So this was my first time and it was better than expected... The staff is extra helpful and friendly ... The cleanliness was great although there was a weird smell of like bathroom on our floor but overall it was unforgettable. Great entertainment as well! The only downfall was a small pool .. We had to wait for people to get out so we could jump in ... For a ship of that size the pool was ridiculously small.
The ship was old but our room that was located in the interior. Deck 4 had a bad odor. The staff was very kind to try to do everything they can to fix it but was not able to full resolve it. They did compensate by offering 20 percent off our next cruise.
This is my 4th cruise and by far the least enjoyable one. Took my family on a cruise on the whim and chose Royal Caribbean because I heard good things about them. I guess those good remarks must have come from those travelling for the first time. I was nickel and dimed throughtout the cruise. Everything revolved around extra this and extra that, except when it came to the casino, gambling lessons were free. The children's Adventure Ocean was intermittently open and would charge you after 10pm to leave your child. Just in time when my wife and I wanted to enjoy the night. I suppose we could have locked our 6 year old in the cabin and left him unattended while we were having a leisurely walk around the deck..... NOT HAPPENING.... Also, most of the the sevents were structured around the 6pm dinner sitting. We had a later sitting which ended up that we missed out on many events.. Bottom line. NOT HAPPY at all with my Royal Caribbean cruise. Carnival cruises are more fun.
We have gone on 3 cruises and I would say this one was the least liked. The wait staff were wonderful and the food at the restaurant was amazing but the food at the buffet is not good. Also, there are not a lot of activities to do like on other cruises. I have gone on Liberty of the Seas and that was much better than this ship. Of course that may be due to it being smaller but I also didn't like the layout. Everything seemed very squished together. I prefer the layout of the Liberty of the Seas and the activities on Carnival. The steward also wasn't great. Although my sister had a great one on another floor so I guess that is hit and miss. I wish there would have been more activities for teens. Also, the arcade was very small. Overall it was ok for 4 nights but not anything more.
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.
