Sail Date: September 01, 2009 Ship: Majesty of the Seas Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 8 years ago
Majesty of the Seas recently went through a new 34 million dollar upgrade. It seemed nice and clean but nothing spectacular.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Evening meals were -- at times -- excellent and at other times just good (a surprising lack of sea food for us being on a ship). Buffets were average at best.

The variety of entertainment seemed good. Quality of instruction during the activities were good. The two down points for us (and several others that we talked to) was that the music was good just way, way, way too LOUD!!! And, it was everywhere. Also, on the final night, a comedian that we heard the first night was coming back with an "adult night". We tend to think of "adult entertainment" as one of more complexity in humor, but what we got was "gutter talk" laced with foul language. We heard him the first night. He played to a packed house and was really entertaining. However, his last night was disappointing and several people left after only a couple of minutes leaving the theatre only 1/3 full.
Service and Staff
1 out of 5
Overall, not very friendly or knowledgable. It was almost like you were inconveniencing them by just asking a question. And, when you did, they may or may not give you the correct answer. The exception to this was the room attendants. Everyone raved about theirs and ours was no exception to this.

Majesty of the Seas is one of the smallest cruise ships that Royal Carribean floats. Keeping that in mind, the size was ok. The layout was (in the beginning) confusing, but we eventually got used to it. Decor and Cleanliness were very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
I am really disappointed here not because of size, decor, amenities, comfort, condition or location. All of this was fine. However, I payed for a higher deck with an "unobstructed view". What I got out my window was a view of the sides of lifeboats. This was hardly unobstructed!!! For an extra $200 per person, I would suggest staying on deck 6 (which is what <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'> offered on their deal) and skip the upgrage for an "unobstructed view"!!!
Pros: cabin attendant, cruise ship games, some evening meals
Cons: herded like cattle, constant "loud" noise, gratuity for everything, lack of inclusions
