Review SummaryThis was our first cruise, and so we were afraid of being overwhelmed by the size of the ship, getting lost, etc. We needn't have worried! Not only was the Majesty a manageable size to learn, but there were always crew members around who were happy to point us in the direction we wanted to go.
The sea days were so much fun, with activities to do, games to play and entertainment to watch. Or, if we preferred, we could sit on the deck and watch the people, and of course EAT!!
We'd been told to expect a small stateroom, and I thought I'd get claustrophobic, but it didn't really feel that tiny, even though it was on the inside. The room was well laid out, and there were plenty of places to stash the too-much stuff we had packed.
Food and Dining
When we wanted something a little more formal, we'd go to one of the inside dining rooms, and we particularly loved the service and attentiveness of the staff at the Four Seasons restaurant. The views were great too!
Some evenings, we would eat at the barbeque for supper, wait a couple of hours and then go to one of the restaurants inside for a fabulous dessert and cappuccino! Best of both worlds!!
We ate in the Pasta Cafe once, and the views there are great and the service is impeccable!
They had little craft classes that were fun, and our favorite was the nightly trivia contests! We made some new friends and had a really good time!!
This cruise was perfect for 40-somethings like us!!
Service and Staff
The size of the ship was very manageable. Once we got it in our heads which was was fore and which was aft, we were fine! Since the ship is smaller than many of the newer ships, we felt like it was perfect for our first cruise!
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: The old buildings are pretty.
Don't Miss: We thought Stingray City was the best thing we could have done there.
Don't Miss: snorkeling, definitely! Even if you don't swim, definitely try the snorkeling! They give you a lifejacket so you'll be fine!
Pros: The crew was most attentive and the food was great!
Cons: The weather wasn't perfect, but whatcha gonna do?
