Revisiting the Majesty

Sail Date: September 02, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Having experienced multiple cruises in the past on the Norwegian Majesty from Boston, the Freestyle Cruising concept was not as good an experience for us as the traditional cruise style previously offered by NCL. It was just a little bit too casual and hurried for us, being used to the relaxed and lighthearted service and joking we enjoyed when the service staff wasn't so hurried (we would arrive at our same table every evening 8:30 seating) to find our wait staff waiting for us and the table covered in origami animals and/or other special touches. We did feel the food was very good this time, very continental and the smaller portion size was a plus where we didn't leave feeling stuffed to the gills. With an appetizer, soup, entree and dessert, it was more than enough. Didn't care for constant requests to be seated with other parties, although I am sure we would have enjoyed their company, but there were six in our party and we preferred a table for six.

Pros: Most of the meals in the Seven Seas dining room

Cons: Hour-long waits on busy evenings (Monday, Saturday) for dining room seating

Recommends Norwegian Majesty (RETIRED)? Yes!

St. George's, Bermuda
The unfinished church on the hill is a great take if you can manage the climb up the hill. We haven't eaten at any restaurants there in quite a few years so don't know what might be good - but they all smell great as you walk by them. We enjoy shopping at Davison's where you can get casual wear for very good prices. Fun to just poke around the narrow streets and see what's there.
Don't Miss: If you like boating, there seems to be good options for boat rentals or take the ferry to the Dockyard for $8.00 roundtrip (shops, restaurants, museum etc.)
