Cruise on Majesty of the Seas (RC)

Sail Date: February 13, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The ship was clean, well cared for, and had plenty of amenities. As this was our first cruise ever, we don't have a lot to benchmark our observations against. Overall it was a fantastic 1st experience.

Pros: The food, the excursions, the people

Cons: Constant reminders about tipping

Recommends Majesty of the Seas? Yes!

The singing and dancing team was awful. But the entertainment they brought on board was pretty good for the most part. Some of the musicians in the center of the entry area weren't very good (too many 80s-style synthesizers) but others were good (like the pianist)
Ship Quality
The layout was nice, wasn't hard to get around, even the stairs weren't particularly painful when we chose to take them
Food and Dining
We found out from other cruise passengers that Royal Caribbean is known for having the best food of the cruise liners. It didn't disappoint for the most part. Some desserts were pretty sub-par but even buffet-style food was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room (junior suite) was wonderful, and by looking at the boat from the outside we could see how lucky we were to have a balcony.
Service and Staff
Everyone was willing to help - it was tough adjusting to not doing anything myself.
Nassau, Bahamas
The excursion we took away from Nassau to Blackbeard's Cay was great. Clean, well-kept island. However, Nassau itself seems to be deteriorating by all reports. It's dirty and there are guards in every store with products of any value. The offers from drug dealers didn't help the ambiance either.
Don't Miss: Blackbeard's Cay - anything there.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
They have developed this island well. The activities are great and the island is clean and peaceful. The excursions/tours/activities are fun as well.
Don't Miss: Waverunner tours
