The cruise is great for the price. Check in went quick and smooth. The wait service was wonderful. They picked up right away on what the eating habits were of the people who were seated at our table. The selection on the menu was limited, but last year, Feb 2010, lobster was served. This year lobster was an item on the menu that had to be purchased. The buffets were great with a large selection to choose from.
Some staff on the ship were not very friendly, but the most part, the service was good. Our room attendant took wonderful care of us and went above the call of duty to make sure we had everything we needed. The ship itself is a well kept vessel and the staff take pride in keeping it that way.
The ports with the exception of Key West were disappointing. First stop was Nassau Bahamas, which in 2010 you were able to enter the Atlantis Hotel and walk through the aquarium and admire the art work. On this trip we were only allowed to enter the casino and enter the shops. Its now a $40 fee per person to enter the main hotel. It is actually cheaper to purchase a day pass from the ship verses the hotel. But we still had a ball in Nassau. Due to the high winds, we were not able to get off at Coco Cay. We had hoped that the ship would find another port to visit, but they didn't. So we had a great day on the ship. Key West is wonderful for shopping, just ask my wife, who received a huge bargain at the Coach store.
The comedian was ok, the dance production was very good and quest was off the hook. The Cruise Director made sure everyone had a great time all day long. There were a lot of great singers at karaoke night. Over all, it was a good cruise besides a couple of disappointments. The small ship experience allows you to meet more people and feel a little closer. The couple traveling with us, Mommy4lyfe and her husband were celebrating their 10th Anniversary (CONGRTAS!!) and they were wonderful to cruise with. This cruise is a quick get-a-way vacation to relax and have fun. If asked if I would cruise again on the Majesty of the Sea, the answer would be YES!!
