Short & Sweet: Majesty of the Seas Cruise Review by DCNative

Short & Sweet
A variety of small problems occurred because of the cabin relocations. I didn’t More receive a welcome letter with my Crown & Anchor benefits. It took four phone calls and another long joyful trip to Guest Services to get a print out of the benefits. Pay attention here because even though the benefits are loaded on your SeaPass card and the crew is supposed to ask if you want to use them when you make a purchase, they don’t. You will not get them unless you ask for them. I heard other people had the same experience.
The 3-day Majesty cruise is a Fri-Mon getaway for many Floridians and it is a ‘party’ cruise. I don’t mean this in a negative way, but if you are used to the longer cruises with more affluent guests – well, this isn’t it! It’s fun and relaxed and we enjoyed it tremendously.
We tendered to CocoCay, RCI’s private island. There were plenty of lounge chairs, several bars, and a nice complimentary beach BBQ with chicken, ribs, hot dogs and hamburgers, potato salad, corn, etc. Tea, lemonade, and water were offered at no cost, too.
The food throughout the cruise was excellent. The service in the dining room (and our dining team) was exceptional. Strangely, the bartenders, with perhaps one exception, seemed to think they were doing us a favor: no smiles or happy faces there. And we are big tippers.
Disembarking was delayed due to U.S. Customs who couldn’t handle the crowd. There didn’t seem to be adequate crew in the departure areas to help guests with questions. When you finally get outside, the same curbside area is used for arrivals and departures, making for a very crowded area. This caused one departing guest to lose her luggage when the curbside agents reloaded her luggage back onto the ship (don’t know if she ever got it). You would expect a better organized area. Less
Cabin review: 3012
The cabin has a small porthole and is in a very noisy area of the ship. You can here loud walking and carts being wheeled at all hours of the day and night (bring earplugs and you'll be okay). On a deck this low, you will definitely know when the ship is slowing / docking (woke me up early each morning). The shower curtains are 2" too short for the shower stall, so the entire bathroom floor floods when you take a shower. Ask your steward for extra towels: you'll need them. On a positive note, there is ample storage space and the bedding is above average. Note: there is a hairdryer, but no refrigerator.
