In addition to the events announced in the Cruise Compass daily planner, onboard entertainment features a lot of live music and recent movies on the big(ger) screens in Spectrum lounge (Deck 8) and Chorus Line Theater on decks 5 and 7 (venue depends on the day). Trivia and Sudoku puzzles are available daily in the library. Daytime offerings are limited because of time spent in port.
Evening entertainment offers a blend of production shows and individual performers -- generally a magician, comic or singer/musician -- in the Chorus Line Theater. Usually two shows are available nightly to accommodate both dining times. Music and dancing are offered all around the ship, from piano sing-alongs in the Schooner Bar to calypso music poolside, and from classics in the Centrum to Latin flavors in Boleros. Name-that-tune is played nightly in the Schooner Bar. Late each night, the cruise director's own take on a game show (Battle of the Sexes, The Newlywed Game, even an adult scavenger hunt) takes place, typically in the Spectrum lounge. These regularly draw large crowds.
The Schooner Bar, on Deck 5, is probably our favorite hangout space on the ship. Sunny and not smoky (although right off the casino), it's a great place to sit during the day, log on to check email from a personal device or grab a pre-dinner cocktail at night. A relaxed and nautical ambience caters to watching the piano player, catching Monday Night Football or simply staring out the window.
Spectrum, on Deck 8, is as close to a club as Majesty gets, with pink neon lights and a major sound system. Themed nights (such as 80s music or disco) seem to bleed into other activities in the area, including singles meet-ups and nightly game shows.
Boleros, on Deck 7, is one of the only places left to smoke indoors. It has a distinct Latin feel that comes alive on Majesty, and once the Dominican Quartet starts playing, with mojitos and caipirinhas flowing, you will see how. Boleros hosts the Park West art auction on each sailing, typically on the final night of the cruise. On our voyage, a preview of the artwork was held at 5 p.m., followed by the auction at 5:30 (with free Champagne). Other art sales might be held throughout your voyage and could include a raffle or giveaway for attending.
A Chorus Line Theater, done in subtle coral, rust and beige tones, has a classical theater ambience with wide seating arrangements and a wooden stage. Art Deco statues of cabaret girls greet you from either side of the Deck 5 entrance. The side seats offer those awful poles and poor sight lines, but middle seats on both levels (decks 5 and 7) offer great views.
Viking Crown Lounge, all the way up on Deck 14, is a staple on Royal Caribbean ships. It looks a bit outdated but can guarantee a great bird's-eye view of the pool deck and surrounding sea. The lounge is closed occasionally because of private events, but, even when it's open, it's one of the quietest places on the ship.
Casino Royale, on Deck 5, offers eight table games, two roulette wheels and one craps game in addition to a wide variety of slots. When dealers have downtime, they are more than willing to teach you any of the card games, for those who aren't pros or just want to pick up a few tips.
