Majesty of the Seas

November 2016 - Majesty of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Cruise to the Bahamas

This was a last minute booking and had a forward oceanview room.  Room was much smaller than we were used to but larger than the Empress in Sep.

Everything went great with the exception of the piles of dishes all over the pool deck.  I don't mean just a few dishes, I'm talking about mountains of plates and glasses. 

I'm a smoker and ashtrays in the pool and casino were hard to find and when you did they were in the smouldering stage.  RCCL should either get more ashtrays or empty them more than once a day.

Oasis of the Seas

October 2016 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

A very big...and loud...ship

First time on the Oasis and probably our last.  Had several small issues but enough to make our time in the Customer Service line a real pain.  Had a beautiful room overlooking Central Park but all we could see was the top of trees.  Dinner at Chops was great, well worth the extra expense.

We like the idea of sitting with the same people nightly for dinner.  We had dinner reservations nightly and that was chaos.  Each line, with and without reservations, was pretty long.  Bad thing is people were walking by the table throughout the meal.

The noise on the ship was amazing.  I'm sure there were places to sit and have a relaxing drink but we didn't find them.

Norwegian Star

November 2015 - Norwegian Star to Caribbean - Western

Last minute cruise from Tampa

This was our 4th NCL cruise this year and are actually on this ship in April for the crossing to Copenhagen and wanted to check it out.  Everything went well, met NCL standards. 

The only thing that we were not happy with was the size of the Oceanview room we had.  We were on the front of the ship and were told the rooms in the middle of the ship were larger.  I could not imagine spending 3 weeks in a room this small.

petercdurkin's Tips

Majesty of the Seas Majesty of the Seas - Ship was not the easiest to get around as not all the floors went through but that didn't detract from a fun little getaway.
Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - Don't want to hit the buffet in the morning? Check out O'Sheans for a limited menu and great ocean views. Actually all 3 meals can be had there.
