Ship Facts: Majesty of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Majesty of the Seas Deck Plans
Missing the Mark

Royal Caribbean - Majesty of the Seas

This was my first cruise ever so here are my thoughts about RC's Majesty of the Seas. We had a room on deck 9 which was indicated to have a limited view due to life boats. We still had an excellent view and felt this was a great value since we wanted a view and couldn't swing the suite. Bed was comfortable, room decent size, plenty of hot water in shower, lots of mirrors, well insulated as we could not hear either of our neighbors or hallway traffic.

The food on Majesty of the Seas is mediocre at best. My wife and I are both foodies so to us it was like eating at a Sizzler. I expected better quality after my wife raved about her dining experience on Princess Cruises. We both assumed RC would be at least that or better.

Much to my surprise, most drinks were NOT watered down. Lots of great choices from the Pool Bar and more crafty selections in the Schooner Lounge on deck 5.

Coco Cay - RC pretty much owns this island. All activities and beverages make them more money. You should know that 2 ships per day show up at Coco Cay. Lounge chairs go fast. If you are late to get off the boat you may have to lay on your towel in the sand. Also, the warmest water is on Barefoot Beach which has the largest shallow area so the water warms better there. Food on Coco Cay was mediocre at best.

Nassau - We wanted to dine among locals so we didn't eat breakfast on the ship. We asked a local where a good breakfast spot was that we could walk to and he directed us over two blocks and up one to a place called Cafe Skans. Typical breakfast fare with reasonable prices. We got there while other locals were dining. Another reviewer suggested taking a bus around the locals loop. Only $1.25. For lunch we ate at where local financial district and medical profession workers dine. A place called Van Breugels had excellent Bahamian beers and top notch lunch choices.

Key West - You only get 5 hours in Key West and that is ONLY IF you are off the boat first. You have to pass through customs coming from international waters. We were group 10. Didn't step on Key West until 1:30pm. Had to be back on the boat by 5:30pm. What a tease of a stop. You really need to spend at least four days on Key West. Plan ahead and go there after your cruise. Seriously. We took the City View trolley see the general layout of Key West. Very informative. Got off at Butterfly Sanctuary (this was truly awesome) and had lunch at Southernmost Bar & Grill right on the water's edge. By then we had to get back to the boat so hopped back on trolley.

Miami - after returning to Miami you pretty much just get off the boat and head on out. Back through customs again (seems overdone) waiting in LONG lines that take about an hour. Taxi to airport is $24.
