Yesssss!! I felt the same. I settled for the Majesty of the Seas due to the Empress of the Seas being cancelled. I could not cancel or change my flight w/o being hit with a hefty charge, so i went ahead on the Majesty. The ship is very outdated and needs to be renovated. The food was not good as expected outside of the formal dinning. Pizza for the late night munchies was soggy and not fully cooked. The only good experience that was to pare was most of the staff. The bar and dinner staff was excellent. I really enjoyed spending the day at Cococay. The food was good as well.
Being that this was my first cruise i was disappointed and i think this has ruined me from ever cruising again on any cruise line.
