Worth considering: Majesty of the Seas Cruise Review by TeamAnnapolis
Overall Member Rating
Cabin review: 5096
We had 2 rooms on 5th deck mid-ships with windows. They were small but quiet and great location. The beds were very comfortable and I was glad to see we had personal AC controls in the room. Our room attendant was excellent and took great care of us.
Port and Shore Excursions
The day at Coco Cay was perfect. We rented one of the private cabanas ($200) for the 4 of us and it was excellent. Shaded couch, 2 padded lounge chairs and 4 regular lounge chair. Great view of the water (we rented #4) and the ship and the jet skis going by and the parasailing, etc etc. Felt like we had our own little retreat. Comes with 2 sets of snorkel gear ($66 value) and 2 floaty mats ($20 value) plus an iced cooler with bubbly wine and 4 big bottles of water on top of the upgraded and semi-private lunch buffet which included steaks and shish-kabob cooked fresh (they were most excellent). Well worth it.
Additionally my sons did the island jet ski tour and had a blast. We saw the staff in action and they were very thorough, keen eye to safety while ensuring everyone had fun. Recommending taking the 9 am trip before it gets too hot and on our cruise, they were offering free tickets ($29 value) for the passenger on the 9 am trip.
After that we swam and snorkeled. They've got a great set-up for snorkeling including a sunken boat and airplane. Lots of exotic fish sightings. Very cool.
Took a while to get off as we had to clear immigration there. Not a big deal as it was rainy, but if you really want to maximize your time ashore, book an excursion. They get front of line privileges to get off. There was a trolley tour train pass that is a hop-on/hop-off kind of thing and would work pretty well. We simply walked off, did some shopping near the ship and had a decent lunch at Caroline's.
Oh, and we saw a large group of manatees down near the boatyard. Easy walk from the ship and worth a sight-seeing stroll.
Resort Day Pass
We aren't shoppers and weren't impressed with Nassau. Maybe we saw the wrong parts. What we did do and I would recommend is buying a day pass at the British Colonial Hilton. $200 for the 4 of us, but it came with $160 food/drink credit. Easy 4-5 block walk from the ship and was delightful. Nice outside bar, lovely pool, private beach. Google it. It was good even in the rain and the bartender Phillip was excellent. My rating is an average of 2 Stars for Nassau and 4 stars for the British Colonial Hilton.
Not up to Royal Caribbean Stan...
This ship is old and tired, pa...
