Majesty of the Seas - Bahamas
Ship is a little smaller, tiny cabins, but well kept. Ate in dining room all 3 nights and the food was good, much better than our most recent cruise on Valor. Service was good too. Loved the Viking Crown Lounge on 14 -- $5 mojitos and a relatively quiet spot to watch the sunset. My husband was in the casino every night and had great service there and good luck with blackjack... slots ate my money relentlessly, no luck there. Disco was ok... first night they played all disco till midnight and it was like being at a wedding or prom... but the dance floor was packed and people enjoyed it. After midnight they played dance music and the crowd was a little younger. Didn't go to any of the shows so can't comment there. Nice dry sauna in the spa... steam room was a little modular More cube, kind of weird, but clean and steamy, no additional charge for either. Cruise director kind of weird, like a bernie mac type guy, i didn't find him to be very good, but nor did it affect my cruise experience one way or the other. Coco Cay was nice and the barbecue lunch was well organized and quite tasty. Plenty of chairs and hammocks for leisure lounging. Nassau is Nassau, not my favorite port but for being a Sunday almost everything was open, 4 ships were in port. We took a cab to Arawak Cay for Fish Fry area... cab was $6 each way for the 2 of us, but apparently you can take the bus for $1 per person. We ate at Twin Brothers... conch fritters were awesome and cheap, everything else was kind of gross. Efficient service but not even the suggestion of friendliness! Then on the requisite craziness at Senor Frogs.
All in all this cruise exceeded my expectations... I always thought you got shortchanged on a short cruise with a nappy old ship and a cranky staff, not this one!!!! Less
