Good value but a few disappointments

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Review SummaryWe have been on 3 cruises prior to this, and Majesty was a fairly good value for the price paid. The staff friendliness & service was FANTASTIC, as always, and we enjoyed the MyTime Dining that was more flexible than the standard 1st & 2nd seating options. The food quality was good, but we certainly missed lobster night, which has been a staple on all our prior cruises. The ports of call at Key West & Nassau were okay for a little walking around, but we wished we had looked harder for beaches after our excursions. Many Mexico ports of call end excursions with some beach time, but we didn't get that here. The Clear Kayak experience at Nassau was our least favorite of all the excursions we've ever done -- we were dropped off at a place with quite choppy ocean waves and were not given a guided tour as expected, and also we were in the same area with snorkelers so safety was a concern. CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's private island, exceeded all our expectations! It helped that the weather was gorgeous & no wind, and we fully enjoyed a whole day to just relax on the beach, eat food that the cruise line provided for us on shore, and shop in the mini-market there modeled after Nassau's Straw Market. CocoCay was the BEST day of the trip! We enjoyed the ship but have been on much fancier and larger ships, so this one was nice but fairly basic.

Pros: Beautiful ocean views & CocoCay beach day!
Cons: No lobster meal and excursions left some things to be desired.
