Review SummaryWe read "horror" stories about this ship, but the timing was perfect for us [my husband's birthday was this week] and the price was even better... so we decided to give it a try. In EVERY aspect, the ship FAR exceeded our expectations. We had sailed the Majesty previously, and after its complete make over, we would never have recognized her! The newness is prevalent throughout the ship in almost every area, except the cabin size! The new Windjammer Buffet is really not a buffet, but it is more like Marketplace with different types of food offered at various serving stations. It is now located in the middle of the restaurant making seating more available! We enjoyed the restaurant for both breakfast and lunch, never experiencing long lines.
Perhaps, this "new" feeling has rubbed off on its staff, because they all seemed cheerful and willing to help. Since the ship was much smaller than the ones we actually prefer, we found no problem navigating our way throughout the ship. The cruise director and his staff were everywhere, with smiles and eager to assist every passenger making certain the trip was enjoyed. Even the Captain seemed to enjoy meeting passengers and had a sense of humor.
Obviously, the reviews that we read prior to sailing are the "opinion" of the writer, as is this one, but our impression of the Majesty was quite positive. Although a larger ship seems to offer a bit more in the way of entertainment options throughout the night, we enjoyed our 4 night get away and would absolutely return again, hopefully sooner than later!
