Majesty 4 day Bahama cruise.

Sail Date: September 26, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

This was our 3rd cruise on the Sovereign class ship, the first two were on the Monarch. The staff work long hours yet manage to provide service with a smile. The sales on board are comparable to prices on shore. For instance, Bacardi was less than the cost of the local rum. If there is a bad part, it's that it is sooooo easy to just "put it on the card". The ship has phone (GSM) and internet connectivity available though it is quite costly... packages for internet can be purchased to cut some of the cost. Yup... I'd do it again... you betcha!

Pros: Friendliness of the crew

Cons: Probably the elevators... often passed whatever floor we were on. Also, the two sides were not tied together. you had to press the button on each side.

Recommends Majesty of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
That's one fo the big bennies of cruising, after all. There are so many choices, dining room, buffet, room service, Johnnie Rockets (on this ship)... Staff, food, presentation.... all awesome.
Ship Quality
Even though this ship isn't as large as those new huge floating cities, there are still areas we haven't discovered and venues we haven't tried
Cabin / Stateroom
We shop for deals on suites... more like a regular hotel room and there's nothing like sitting on the balcony at night.
Service and Staff
These people work long, hard hours yet always provide service with a smile. As far as I'm concerned, everything they do is above and beyond.
Entertainment
first time we watched a show... funny. Shipboard sales are always going on. The only shore activity I've tried is scuba... on coco cay. I'd like to try the glass bottom boat next time...
Key West, Florida
We did the shopping and got all the freebies. Spent too much too. Walked to the sothernmost point, about half an hour, passing Hemmingway's house. It was HOT and HUMID so if walking in a sauna isn't for you, rent a scooter or electric car.
Don't Miss: US 1, mile 0 (both beginning and end), Southernmost point.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Those Coco Locoes (CL) catch up to you... but they are soooo good! The island lunch is very good. Again, scuba ruled but the rest of the day was spent in the shade with a CL in hand. There is SOOOOO much to do on the island, you can't fit it ALL in in one trip!
Nassau, Bahamas
All I've done is dive... through Bahama Divers. Well, I did shop a little. Upgraded my fiance's engagement ring.... DO gotta watch out. On our return, the customs guy informed me "duty free" only goes so far as your personal exemption...
