Bahama Cruise

Sail Date: June 14, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The staff was friendly. The boat was a bit too crowed for me. We enjoyed the boat most when we were in port and most of the people were off of it. Gratuity is added to every charge -- even a $4 smoothie! It was almost $60 for 3 of the unlimited soda cups. Two of the three dinner shows were singing and dancing - just o.k. Bingo was EXPENSIVE. The food served in the dinning room was WONDERFUL. Exceeded my expectations. Coco Cay was nice. Would have loved to have been there all 3 days. Beautiful water. Brought our snorkel gear with us only to find out we still had to "rent" their flotation device for the day. Think it was $6 each. Our room was VERY TINY for 4 people... but we kinda expected that. Just seemed a little smaller than I remember. Online check in and luggage tags sent in the mail made the process easy and quick.

Pros: Coco Cay - beautiful & relaxing

Cons: Entertainment, mandatory gratuity, crowded

Recommends Majesty of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
This looks like one of their older boats, but it was still nice. We parked next to a lot of other boats with water slides, etc.
Cabin / Stateroom
TINY TINY ROOM! Barely enough room for an adult to fit in the shower. No way to get dressed in it, so you better no be a modest family!! Our cabin was the next to last on deck 2.... so we always had a long walk to room.
Entertainment
Bingo expensive. Plenty of shopping. Dinner shows were just o.k. Comedy/magic show was nice - funny. But the other two shows were nothing but dancing and singing - good entertainment for girls or "girly" people.
Food and Dining
Buffet was good, but food in the dining room was great.
Service and Staff
Everyone was friendly.
Nassau, Bahamas
Crowded, everyone trying to sell you something. They give you a flyer for "free" jewelry at several different stores - a kind of treasure hunt. At least half were "out of stock" or sent us to their sister store only to offer something different or not have it at all. Me and my girls got our hair braided - but only 3 strands each - watchout - if you want your whole head done it's like $100!!!!!... If you want to visit the aquarium at the Atlantis we were told only one of the small aquariums is free - we were told it was $70 each to see the other 3. Plus a $24 cab ride for all of us... we figured we can go to Sea World cheeper than that!!!
Don't Miss: nothing
Key West, Florida
We love Key West - and have been there several times - just not all the touristy places. Got a henna tattoo and left. If you've never been there, get a beer at Sloppy Joes or the Hogs Breath Saloon. Buy a pair of Kinos - family owned and handmade sandles. They've been there for generations. Some people don't even know about this place - shoes are like $12. If you can afford a cab - go to the Southernmost Marker and get a photo taken and have them take you to the "laundrymat" to get a cuban sandwich - that's the place only the locals know about! If you can afford to rent a scooter it is a great way to see almost the whole entire island. If you want a nice sandy beach it is also on the other sided of the island.
Don't Miss: Kinos, Sloppy Joe's, Hogs Breath, Southernmost Marker.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Short tender ride to island - go early - beat the crowd. Never felt too crowded here. Water was cool and clean. The only con would be that we brought our own snorkel gear but we still ended up spending $24 to "rent' the required flotation devices!... and there is a constant voice hollering "Coco Loco"... the rum drink they are pushing. I got some great underwater photos!
Don't Miss: snorkeling
