My amazing experience on the Majesty of the Seas

I just returned from the 3 night cruise with Royal Caribbean and I must say it exceeded my expectations above and beyond. This was our first cruise so we came in not knowing what to expect. I read all the reviews but you can never be too sure.

Day 1: Checking onto the boat was a breeze. We flew in so we got there really early (around 11am) which left us with plenty of time to tour the cruise when barely anyone was on it. It is so big, we didn't even know where to start. 

Day 2: Cococay is a private island owned by the cruise line and it was cute. It's not a big island (only about a mile long) but they had so many activities for us to do. We chose to do the jet ski tour excursion which I HIGHLY recommend. We bought it the day before on the ship and it was about two hours long. We spent the whole day on the beach and lunch was provided!

Day 3: I fell in LOVE with Nassau!! Its such a cute place. When you get off the ship there are many locals offering you rides, excursions, etc. If you're not interested then you can kindly deny but we took one of the taxis to Atlantis for only $4. We spent the whole day at the beach, shopping, etc. until we headed back to the ship for lunch. Just make sure you are back on time before the ship leaves (usually around 4pm)

Life on the ship: There were a variety of age groups there. We went as a couple but there were a lot of singles, families, honeymooners, young kids, pregnant ladies, etc. You name it! Even though we hung out with the younger crowd it was nice to have diversity as if we were one big family. There is also a club on the ship which attracted a younger crowd. But older folks looking to loosen up their dancing shoes were checking it out as well!

The last day was bittersweet. I didn't want to leave the ship at all. The dining experience was amazing (thank you Efren), if I can say ONE thing that I loved about this whole experience then it was definitely the customer service. The whole crew staff was amazing and they go above and beyond to make sure you had an excellent service. The food varied every day, we were never stuck eating the same thing, AND our room was cleaned twice a day (Thanks to Milton)! I know they take money out for gratuities in the end (like a resort fee, which I didn't mind because the service was up to par) but I still ended up tipping some cruise workers I bonded with.

Overall, I can't wait until my next cruise. We're definitely staying with Royal Caribbean but I would like to try their other ships as well! HappyBig SmileLove

Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The whole experience in itself was amazing!!! I was very surprised by the excellent customer service. Every worker on board that I came across was always willing to help me and make sure my stay on the Royal Caribbean was going to be a unique experience.
Entertainment
Different show every night! The comedy was hilarious
Onboard Activities
Giant pool on the deck, rock climbing, casinos, you name it!
Destinations and Excursions
We chose jet skiis in Cococay and just took a taxi to Atlantis in Nassau. We didn't buy the Atlantis tour (probably a waste of money). Most of it is public property so you can give yourself a tour and hit their beach!
Ship Quality
It's funny how most people said this ship was "outdated" but honestly this ship was gorgeous. I've never seen anything like it before. I heard it just got a big renovation and if this is their oldest ship and it looks this amazing then I wonder how their newer ships must look like
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very VERY organized. It's hard to keep over 2,000 people in one place but their system works.
Cabin / Stateroom
I had a love/hate relationship with the cabin but only because I chose to. The regular staterooms are fairly small but that's what we paid for. I think next time we'll save up and upgrade. It doesn't matter all that much because you're barely ever in your room anyways. They still kept it clean and tidy!
