"A Small Ship With Big Personality"

Sail Date: December 09, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We recently sailed from Charleston, SC on the Norwegion Majesty. The ship is an older boat and I did notice some things in process of being repaired while sailing. For the most part the boat is clean and well maintained. Did enjoy the "Free Style Dining" as far as not being obligated to a time to go to dinner or obligated to dine with any paticular fellow cruisers. Did have one encounter when several people came to dinner wearing jeans on formal night. I myself did not have a problem with this as it states "Free Style". However, another night my husband and I went to dinner in nice dress shorts and dress shirt and were turned away as our attire was not considered appropriate for dinner to their standards. We left but were a little agitated that others were allowed to dine in jeans but we were turned away in dress shorts. This was my third cruise with three different cruise lines and I feel the food better than one and worse than the other. The staff was extremely friendly and aimed to please on the Norwegion Majesty. The entertainment and activities held something for everyone and there was plenty to do at all times. The pool area and hot tub was full of children most of the time even though it was suppose to be for adults. Feel they should enforce seperating the two for those who needed time away to relax without the children. Departing the boat in ports was quite hectic as everyone was exiting at the same time. Not sure what improvement could be done to avoid this as port times are short and everyone want to spend as much time as they can off of the boat. Did like the personal attention that you get from a smaller ship vs a larger ship. Not sure if I would take this paticular cruise again but would probably give Norwegion Cruises more business possibly on a different ship.

Pros: Very Friendly Staff

Cons: Unorganized Departing Ship in Ports

Recommends Norwegian Majesty (RETIRED)? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping in Cozumel was more reasonable than Grand Cayman. Went on the Catamaran beach party, which was wonderful. We were first taken to an area to snorkel and then taken to a private beach for float, kayak etc. The staff on the catamaran were all very friendly and made sure everyone had a great time. Also went to Senior Frogs for lunch. Very entertaining, watch out for the shots though, comes with a surprise.
Don't Miss: Highly recommend the Catamaran Beach Party
George Town, Grand Cayman
Found shopping in Grand Cayman to be a little on the high side. Went on the Atlantis Submarine and if you do not have a problem with tight closed in spaces this is quite an adventure. Really did not have time to visit beaches due to timing of excursion.
Don't Miss: Atlantis Submarine
Key West, Florida
Spent our time in Key West on the Premier Bar Stroll. Enjoyed most of the stops but was very disappointed with Margaritaville. All stops to bars were pleasant and staff friendly. Margaritaville staff was very rude, Hardly anyone in restaurant yet we were not allowed to sit at tables. Were directed to sit at bar which was full. Not one available seat. With no one waiting to be seated for dinner I found this to be annoying to have to stand in a small space to finish drink. Staff very rude when directing group to go to bar area which was within inches of tables. Being a Jimmy Buffett fan this was a great disappointment
Don't Miss: Hemmingway House
