Great weekend away

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Miami

My husband was attending a conference in Miami, so since it was his birthday and our anniversary while the conference was taking place we decided to travel down a few days early and take a mini- cruise to the Bahamas.
We had planned to take a cab form the airport, but since the Royal Caribbean coach transfer was about to leave as we collected our bags we took that instead. the cost for both of us was $35 all in, more than the cab cost, but they also took care of our bags - all we had to do was walk off the coach and into the terminal. Check in was a breeze, we were on the ship in about 15 minutes - our last cruise in February was out of San Juan where check in took well over an hour. We had chosen a deck 9 Oceanview cabin which gave us a little extra space, it was great for a 3 day cruise, but for longer cruises in the Caribbean we do like to have a balcony.
There was a little mix up with our seating assignment for dinner - but it was sorted out promptly - we had been seated More at a table for 8 with only a Spanish speaking couple as tablemates, this couple had their two young sons and both of sets of grandparents seated across the dining room. We arranged with the Maitre D to have the whole family seated together at our table for 8 and we switched over to a table for 6 (but the other table mates chose not to use the dining room).
Food was good in the dining room, service was great, Windjammer and the Cafe were also fine.
Ports - did an off road Segway tour in Nassau - highly recommended and also enjoyed the Coco Cay beach day -after lunch we found a nice quiet part of the beach with lounge chairs and a Tiki hut - even tried out the hammocks.
Entertainment - comedians were pretty good, music in the bars was not well attended - more people gathered watching sports on TV screens than were listening to the performers.
Majesty is a well maintained smaller ship, which is easy to get around, the ship was full - about 2500 but never seemed crowded.
Disembarkation was fast and trouble free.
Overall a great cruise Less

Cabin review: Majesty of the Seas Superior Oceanview Stateroom Deck 9 9544

9544 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.

Port and Shore Excursions


Segway Tour

(5)
We were picked up promptly just outside the cruise ship dock and were taken on a sightseeing tour on the way to the Segway tour which takes place about 30 minutes away form Port in a conservation area. We received instruction about safety and were taught how to use the segway before going on a guided off-road segway tour. Segway portion was about 45-60 mins along trails and alongside the ocean. There were 6 of us on the tour so it was a fun, small intimate group. We were returned promptly to our ship - some members of the group were leaving port early and had a tight timeline. Great fun, well priced and highly recommended
