This ship is small, but mighty. We have never gone on a cruise shorter than 7 days and we thought it might be a dissapointment, but definetely not so. The refurbishment was apparent everywhere. It looked like a brand new ship. We had our set sail passes printed out, so embarkation was a snap. We were on the ship eating lunch by 1:00. We encountered very rough seas the first night, lots of sick people, but in a matter of a few hours, it smoothed out.
Our first stop was Nassau. We have been there before, so we opted to nap and tan on the deck instead of getting off of the ship. Cococay was the next stop, and what a delight. Plenty of chairs by the water, great BBQ lunch. Just total relaxation. Third stop was Key West. Our first time here, I fell in love with the town. So eclectic and the best souvenir shopping on this trip. I will definitely want to stop here in the future. Sorry we didn't get to stay for the sunset, though. Everyone says it is something to see.
We traveled with a group of 12, with 2 birthdays to celebrate and the dining room was very accomodating. Service and the maintenance is what sets Royal Caribbean apart from other cruise lines. They are always striving to better your experiences. The ship is so well kept. We traveled Carnival once, and they just don't begin to compare with Royal Caribbean. However, the cabins on Majesty were much smaller than other ships we have traveled on, but we didn't spend much time there. We did have to get ready in shifts though, not enough room for 4 people. The bedding made up for the shortcomings, we slept so well. We have not yet figured out why Johnny Rockets is only open for one hour per day, though. Explorer's is open constantly throughout the day. The kids we a little disappointed about that.
I would take this cruise again, it was inexpensive and a real bargain overall.
