Relaxation cruise: Majesty of the Seas Cruise Review by Wishy
Overall Member Rating
The general population was more mature with some More children and teens. It was also very international. Many seemed to come in groups so they had friends to "hang out" with. There was also a group of 500 fraternity members plus instructors involved in a course which may have changed the nature of typical cruisers for this ship.
It was not conducive to meeting new people so it is probably more enjoyable to go with friends but we brought our own games and found plenty of tables and chairs to play at.
Cruising is not for everyone but if you are looking for a relaxing and care free few days this was a very pleasant way to do it.
We were very impressed with the Autism and Sea Program. The families we met were thrilled to have such a wonderful staff, activities and accommodations for their families. The children (preschool thru teenagers) were well supervised and cared for in areas that suited their specific needs. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
Beautiful island, plentiful barb b q- lots of salads and fruit...and veggie burgers. We rented a cabanette which came with bottled water, ice, a fruit platter and two floating mats along with very friendly attendants. There was a tram dedicated to just this area of the island. Well worth the price (not for kids as it is too far away from the water sports). There were plenty of chairs and hammocks for everyone all over the island. We also took a kayak trip with adorable and very informative and enthusiastic guides. Even with a short rain it was a very nice day. If I was not with my 86 yr old mother we would have probably taken a longer excursion.
We enjoyed Key West. We had been there before but had not taken a tour. City Tour was great. Very informative and entertaining tour guides. The city is totally set up for the large number of tourists.
There was a torrential down pour so we cancelled the tour. The ship did not have any problem with the last minute cancellation. We did walk around the town. Not much more than tourist shopping but colorful.
