Overall Member Rating
Majesty of the Seas is a good choice for a short cruise.
The exercise equipment is fairly new and there never seemed to be a wait to use it, but there is no running track. There is a deck that is dedicated for those who want to run, but it is not conducive to using because of the location and the traffic on the decks during the day.
Be aware, if you can carry on your luggage for a short 3 day cruise, it will save you time and aggravation. Make sure, you also budget for drinks, soft and alcoholic; tipping charges, which can be added to your bill if you choose; excursions, which can get pricey; and parking or transportation to and from the port.
On the three day Bahama cruise you will go to Coco Cay for a day of beach activities. It is an island that has man-made beaches and plenty of seating along the shore-line. Bring sunscreen and hats. The shops on their island are over-priced and you can do better in Nassau or on the ship for straw items and T-shirts. On the island, a barbecue luncheon is served, but they seemed to run our of juices at about 1pm. Lunch is served on the island from 11:30-1:30 and when food begins to run out around 1:00 they do not replenish the supply. The island is relaxing and you can take guided hikes, kayak trips, para-sailing, etc, but it can get pricey. Less
Cabin review: G8512 Ocean View Stateroom
WE had an obstructed view, but that did not matter because I was more concerned with sunlight during the day and on a three day cruise we spend very little time in the cabin. On a longer cruise, I would not have an obstructed view because the life boat obstructed the entire view. The cabin is small and 2 people have a difficult time maneuvering around one another. The head is small but adequate. It is an older ship, so the cabins are not spacious or designed with today's clientele in mind. Bring your own shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and soap because if they are not lacking, they are no longer the quality they had been. There is a shampoo dispenser and body wash dispenser on the shower wall and the hand soap is harsh. This cabin, however, was quiet and situated near access points. Mid-ships has proven to be the section where I prefer to be located because I don't feel the movement of the ship as pronounced and it is easy to get to and from other areas of the ship because of stairwells and elevators.Read All Ocean View Stateroom (G) Reviews >>
