The housekeeping staff did not seem to pay the attention I thought they should have to our rooms.  I didn't like the fact of them only coming once a day; all of the staff are friendly they make it a point to know your name and to call you by your name for the most part.  But I did have some places where they waiter would address everyone at the table by name and he did not speak to me personally.  Now all of that aside the ship is amazing.  There are so many places to just chill out an enjoy yourself.  The entertainment staff and the Production Team did an amazing time each time.  The ship is very clean, and the common areas are glamorous.  The ship is really awesome.  I would ride the ship again just for the cruise director Chris the Flying Scottsman.  He was awesome he and the fun squad.  They made every event a party and they gave everything in them each time.  I never had unpleasant encounter with any of the fun squad, DJ Verso, or the production team.  Melissa from the fun squad is really amazing as well.  If you are looking for a super fun time this is the ship for you.

Majesty of the Seas

October 2016 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Majesty of the Seas

Older Ship/Older Crew

The crowd was older, but we made the best of it. The events were also more for the senior retired people. There wasn't a mix of things to appeal to all ages. The time off the ship was great the shore excursions were great & they gave a bit more variety.

astria1's Tips

New Orleans, Louisiana - Plan for delays and breakdowns. The gangway was broken on our way coming in and it also broke down on our way leaving out. So be prepared to wait, and to be inconvenienced. But make fun of it by dancing in the line and getting to know some of the people who will be on the ship with you.
Cozumel, Mexico - You have to walk through the shops to get to the taxi and do your excursions. Just try to remain focused because there are going to be a ton of people trying to sell you things. There are several wifi places in Cozumel and some of the excursion locations offer free wifi when you are there as well as pay for your taxi ride back to the port.
George Town, Grand Cayman - George Town was the best it was very clean, and we had to be tendered in. You should leave your room 30 minutes before your excursion time, because you will have to get on a tender ship to get to the actual dock. For us we left from New Orleans which we were an hour behind in George Town. They do not have daylight savings time so now they are on the same time as central.
Montego Bay, Jamaica - Take a tour and stay close to the tour guide try not to interact with the locals who are selling merchandise because they will do whatever to do their best to try to get money from you any way they can. the country is not the nicest, but it is beautiful in some areas. Do a beach getaway here that includes seeing the city and shows the history of the city.
Carnival Dream Carnival Dream - At debarkation do the carry your own luggage. We were off the ship and through U.S. Customs in about 30 minutes. Follow the instructions of the Cruise Director and you will be in great hands. And try your best to do everything on the fun schedule.
