Enjoyable holiday!

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

It was a great holiday, with perfect weather. Overall the ship was nice, but having been on the Mariner of the Seas earlier in the year the difference was obvious. Both ships had wonderful dining, but the Mariner had much more to do. The Majesty lacked a movie theater, hot tubs (except two small ones that fit 3 persons), skating rink, and some of the free seminars on the larger ship. The "library" was a lounge with a token 100 or so books. The room service menu was more limited then on other ships. Having heard the ship was just refurbished last year, I was surprised that there was rust in a number of places, however the crew was painting throughout the voyage, and it looked great by the end of the trip. I can't complain, as the price was wonderful, with only a 25% single supplement. As typical with RC, the staff was top notch, and did all they could to make the passengers comfortable. The on board entertainment was very professional, and shows could rival anything I have seen in Vegas. Food was great, and was available everywhere.

Pros: The private island is very relaxing

Cons: Lacking some of the features of larger ships

Recommends Majesty of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were nice, and cleaned twice a day. Stateroom size was 35% smaller than similar room on Mariner of the Seas
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
It's amazing how great of service. Food was great in the dining rooms and buffet. There were many things that I have not seen on other ships.
Service and Staff
Top notch staff. Dining room waiters not only took care of the meal, but made a point to let you know about upcoming port, activities on board etc. and answer questions or concerns.
Shows were very well done. There were interesting demonstrations from the kitchen staff, including melon carving and making of deserts.
Children's Programs
Kids on board seemed to have a good time. I enjoyed a parade of young "pirates" that came through the lounge.
Nassau, Bahamas
Not a lot to do here, yet the longest stay in port.
Don't Miss: The pirate museum is interesting
Key West, Florida
Interesting town with old time bars, beautiful old homes, and chickens walking around. I had to make some of the tourist stops, such as see Jimmy Buffets' Margaritaville. Too bad the ship had to leave so early.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
The island is very relaxing, and offers good beaches and hikes. I got on the first tender to make sure I got a good hammock, but found it was not necessary. There were more than enough good beach chairs and hammocks for everyone on the ship.
