The cabin had new carpet which is a plus, but the bathroom has some rust and was somewhat old and dirty looking. It was clean, but it just really needs to be updated. The water smelled like sewage was backing up which scared me, but at times the water smelled normal. Read entire member review >>
Our room was more than adequate, especially for a short cruise. We had the beds separated and there was a loveseat along with the vanity. Loads of storage areas (for a cruise ship), mini-fridge, and safe. Well maintained Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was large enough for two. We spent a lot of time in the room, and enjoyed looking out our window. We used the television minimally, only for seeing our location and watched a movie on the sea day. We did use our safe, and liked that we had plenty of storage for clothing in the cabinets and closet. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin, no issues. Plenty of storage for a short cruise. Bathroom is a little small, but this is to be expected on an older ship. Our cabin steward kept the room clean and tidy. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was obstructed (as we knew) but was less than others. It was in a good, quiet location at the very forward of the starboard side. Smaller rooms than we've had before, but again we already knew that so no surprises there. Overall great stateroom. Our attendant kept everything very nice and we barely saw him.

Cabin was great! We upgraded to an SO cabin because I was concerned about the smaller cabins on the other decks. We had lots of room to store clothes (we actually didn't use all the space). Our cabin steward, Sean, couldn't do enough for us. While Majesty is an older ship, we found the cabin clean and comfortable. The location is perfect to access all the other areas of the ship. SO cabins come with a small loveseat and a refrigerator. These are nice touches. While this is listed as "obstructed view" we could see just fine and enjoyed the larger window.

Very pleased with the cabin. I had read a review on CC which spoke to an issue with the shower water not being hot enough in this very cabin. Well, that issue has been addressed, and then some. . .it was almost too hot!! The cabins on Deck 9 generally overlook the Life Boats, but this particular cabin overlooks a smaller "Rescue Boat," which doesn't impede the view as much. I really like Deck 9; I have had cabins on Decks 2, 5, 7 and 9 aboard MJ and prefer 9. Never have "sprung" for any cabin rated above, such as a Junior Suite, Grand Suite, or Owner's Suite, so can't speak to those. Read entire member review >>
The rooms were a decent size, (we had an upgraded window room on the 9th floor) but the décor was very outdated and simple. There was plenty of storage space, and our room stewarded did a great job keeping it clean. That is the only real positive I can say about the room. The bed was awful, and felt like we were sleeping on planks of wood. the pillows were flat, and it took three to make the feel of one. The air conditioning only barely worked in the room (a common problem from talking to the other guests) which combined led to some very uncomfortable nights (lack of) sleep.

Cabin was small but well laid out for maximum use. Well lit and clean. Beds were very comfortable which was a surprise. Bathroom is tiny but that is to be expected. I recommend a window room though as it was nice having natural light and a view of ports. Read entire member review >>
It was a comfortable room with the usual amenities. The TV was new, but a bit small. Plenty of storage space for the cabin size. There is minimal obstruction of the view from this stateroom. Read entire member review >>
I got a Superior Ocean View (9016) to get the 30 extra square feet since I invited a friend along. I had requested ahead of time that they put a “bed wedge” in one of the beds since I have a reflux issue and need it for sleeping. That was not done, but our cabin attendant Jason was there in a flash, and promised it would be done by dinner, and it was. Our Diamond robes were waiting for us, too, as well as the extra pillows I asked for. Jason was an excellent and attentive cabin attendant.For those who wonder, an SO cabin does have a fridge, and does have a safe with a code (as opposed to needing a magnetic card strip). Even though all of the cabins on Majesty are smaller than cabins across the fleet, the SO is quite comfortable for 2 people with lots of storage options. I will say this about the safe: I have a 13” Macbook air and it barely fit. It took a lot of attempts, but I got it in, and worried about getting it back out (I did). But don’t plan on the safe housing a larger laptop. There are two 120v outlets by the desk – conveniently located for the hair dryer in the drawer right under them. The view is "obstructed" like they say, because you are on top of the life boats, but you still see straight out. Read entire member review >>
The room was amazing! Clean and comfortable & our housekeeper, Roger, was pleasant & personal! It said obstructed view, but I sat in the window and was able to see everything! Read entire member review >>
Great aft location near spa, stairway and elevators. Quick walk up to pool deck, down to shows and dinner. Good sized stateroom with nice big picture window you can sit in. The view was fine. You can see lifeboats below, but they do not ruin the view in my opinion. Read entire member review >>
I think the cabin was fine. Are they smaller than hotel rooms? Yes. Is there enough room? Yes. the Superior Outside rooms are about 25% larger. I do think that is important and if I was in a smaller cabin I think the difference would feel cramped. The view was fine. The life boats obstruct a view if you want to look down. Since the ocean view was looking out, I was not bothered at all. It would be tight on a longer cruise - small closets, small drawers/shelves, but for what is needed on a 3-nighter, it was fine. I'm a big guy, and the shower is tight, but usable. Read entire member review >>
9032 is an excellent cabin on Majesty of the Seas if you want a nice window with a less obstructed view than the other rooms on the floor. PM me for pics out the window. Room was clean, quiet. Esther was an awesome room host. Close to elevators but no noise. Would definitely pick this room again. Read entire member review >>
Superior Oceanview so a little more space than other outside cabins.
Bathroom has shower curtain - not door.
In good condition considering age of ship
Flat screen TV - but could not access onboard account on cabin TV
Stateroom window was small and rectangular - view out was between the top of two lifeboats - some oceanview cabins on lower decks seemed to have larger windows
Enough room for 2 people on a 3 or 4 day cruise - plenty of drawers and storage space.
Safe was in a very awkward place to access - almost at floor level, inside wardrobe/closet right next to cabin door. Read entire member review >>
It has an "obstructed view" but it's not bad. The window is between 2 life boats. Location is great. It's central to everything. It's nice to be close to the pool deck and the Windjammer. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful size, small closet, lots of drawers. Small bathroom, lots of shelving space. View is great, no lifeboats to over look, just see the bottom of the bridge, but that's like a sun awning! Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 9540. It's in a great location, close to the elevators and stairs. The window has an obstructed view, but not so much that we couldn't enjoy the scenery outside. The bathroom is small, but adequate. We liked having the sofa and queen size bed. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is 157 square feet but is well laid out. There is a couch as well as a desk area in the counter space with a chair. There are only four drawers but lots and lots of drawers. The closet is fine for two people. The safe is located in the closet. The only complaint we have is the bathroom. The sink has very little shelf space. The shower is small but adequate. There are some small shelves in the corner in front of the toilet. The toilet paper and facial tissue are single ply. If you have sensitive skin, take your own. Read entire member review >>
On my previous 4 cruises with Carnival I had always booked a balcony cabin. I had booked a Superior Oceanview cabin on this cruise and it was great. I may even be converted to this type from the balcony. We were in Cabin 9036 which is right next to the elevator and it was very nice. Although it had a partially obstructed view it was still good. I would not hesitate to book this cabin again on any future cruises with RCCL. I would highly recommend paying the difference for a category SO. The cabin was bigger than the balcony cabins on my previous Carnival cruises. Bathrooms were not much bigger but had a better layout on this ship. It had a flat screen tv and adaquate closet and drawer space for everything. Read entire member review >>
Reasonably sized, obstructed view, bad design enclosing fridge (really warm to the touch!), and stinky bathroom. High placement means you feel rough seas more. Note to RCCL: lose the shower curtain! Read entire member review >>
