We had an outside room on a higher deck and it was larger than some rooms we’ve experienced on other cruise lines.  But by today’s standards the amenities are not up to par. The only late night areas to grab a snack are not easily accessible with no elevators near them. For a person with mobility issues, as I, it can be a challenge.  On the elevators, there were many times that the crew took a number of the elevators out of service for their use and due to the very limited number of elevators on this ship that was a HUGE issue.

On the amenities, there was a small TV with few channels in our room as well as the suites that we were in. Though maintenance fixed our shower after we reported it, when we arrived it was cracked with green gunk around the cracks, tell me it was not new, that spayed you in the eyes. Also in the shower there was a bulk dispenser with what appeared to be shower gel, but no shampoo in sight.

At every turn Royal Caribbean appeared to offer paid upgrades from basic Espresso to dining at Johnny Rockets with not only paying additional for the food, As a seasoned frequent traveler we have not written off RC after our first experience on them. But we would not revisit the Majesty of the Seas unless it goes through a major rehab. One never wants to spend hard earned money for a sub par experience.UT a cover charge!



Food and Dining

The dining room was very good, but other options were too limited without paying for upgraded dining

Onboard Activities

The photo area was extremely disorganized with stacks and stacks of photos on top of each other making it very difficult to find your photos. Idea, save them to files on a server by cabin number with a few self serve work stations that they can be viewed and purchased. Then just have staff for product delivery.

Very limited

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The on board staff appear to be doing the best with what they have to work with, they were trying hard! The land side boarding staff was ill prepared and provided a HORRIBLE experience for our group with a couple of mobility challenged Customer. Frown for them.

Needs help NOW!

Cabin / Stateroom

Nice size, needs more outlets for today's travelers. Not a single outlet near the bed, only option for power needed on night stand was a extension cord providing a nightly trip hazard.

Look at another ship!

Getting a cabana was a great option.

The charm and culture excursion was nice, though don't expect much from the stop at the distillery.
