Majesty of the Seas to Leave Royal Caribbean Fleet in 2016

Gene Sloan at USA Today's CruiseLog is reporting that Majesty of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's last Sovereign-class ship, will leave the fleet in April of 2016:

Majesty of the Seas is the most-reviewed cruise ship here on the site, with over 1400 reviews and counting. Despite being over 22 years old, she's earned a respectable 4-star rating:

What do you think of the news? Does the end of the Sovereign-class era make you nostalgic, happy or somewhere in between?

It will be sad to see her go. I was on the Monarch many times and always liked the ship except for the tiny cabins. I mean the headboard was the back wall and the foot board of the bed was the shower wall on one side of the cabin. It was good enough for 3 or 4 night cruises. The mega ships are taking over at RCCL. I still miss Song Of America :-)

There is something comforting about a small easy to get around ship where you get more feel of being on a ship and not a floating resort.

If you had a good experience on a ship, you hate to see it retired. But I also enjoy going on the newer ships. They have newer technology, nicer decor and everything is clean and upgraded. So, I have mixed feelings.
