Ship was outdated and in disrepair. Sloppy paint work, smell of sewer gas on the deck. Small rooms. Overcrowded. Children were bored to death. Absolutely worse than I could have every imaginged for our first cruise. Extremely disappointed!

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
I'm a big guy so I know about food. The buffet was boring and bland. The grille was usually cold and soaking in greasy water. And it took 45 minutes to an hour to get into the restaurant and 1 hour and 20 minutes to get out. Too long to keep children wrangled. Not as advertised....only one basic dining option available on this ship.

I felt they were amateurish at best. Sharkbait was good. Calypso band was mediocre. Played the same stuff over and over. Activities were horrible...napkin folding, trivia, vegetable carving, paper lei flower necklaces. Give me a break. If you didn't drink and party, you could play cards. Wow.

Children's Programs

My kids were bored to death which made our experience miserable. There was absolutely nothing for them to do. Pool was too crowded. We played cards a lot. We could have done that at home and saved about $4K.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
I found most everyone to be helpful and friendly. With only 1 memorable exception.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Pools were too small and overcrowded. Not enough seating around pools. Had to stand up and eat virtually everytime. Literally could not see out of the windows they were sooooooooo dirty.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Old worn decor. Room too small. I hit my nose on the night stand the first night on the ship. It bled for an hour and had to wear a bandaide the rest of the week.

Pros: Cozumel Dolphin Encounter...Kids loved it.

Cons: Poor food, no activities, general condition of ship. Nothing special!

Recommends Norwegian Majesty? No.
