I have cruised about 4 times now. This ship along with her sister Majesty should be retired.. or it should be stated that it is a very basic cruise ship. Once you've toured the ship (about 30 mins bow to stern) you're done. There is ... Read more

I choose this ship because at the time the sale was great and I needed to find something to do for my son's 15th Birthday. There were mixed reviews about the size of the ship since it's the smallest from RC so we knew what we were ... Read more

We have reviewed this ship before so I will limit this to things unique to these two four night back to back cruises. Nassau and Key West were the two ports of call with one sea day in between. Unlike most cruises to Key West, these ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the good deal we got, but from the moment of arrival, there was nothing that seemed "discounted" about our cruise (in a good way). We had the best time of our lives. The staff was friendly, ... Read more

Came back to Royal Caribbean because of prior cruise. Food and service was excellent. Island activities well planned. Deluxe drink package a must and well used. Only problem was with our cabin. We were not happy with vile odors coming from ... Read more

This was my first cruise. You have to be careful of all the hidden fees. Do your homework before booking. The entertainment weren't that good and when you're confined, you don't have much choice. The excursions are overprice and not worth ... Read more

I thought that the Empress was part of a line that gave great service, entertainment, etc. Wrong. The service was great, however! The cabin was fine, but the outside window was so dirty that the view was difficult. The strangers ... Read more

I had a very enjoyable 4 days on board the Majesty. What impressed me most was the service. I did not run into one single grumpy or half-hearted worker the entire cruise. Every one on board seemed truly happy to be there, they acted ... Read more

I am a diamond member and usually enjoy cruising with RCCL. On this cruise, my wife and I did not get any sleep because of loud banging (construction) going on below our cabin. The Director of Housing was attentive and immediately changed ... Read more

My wife chose this cruise for our anniversary. I have been on nearly all of the RCCL cruise ships and I have to say, this was the worst. First of all, let's talk about the Junior Suite ripoff game they have going on here. They sell you a ... Read more

I really don't know what ship some of the people with bad reviews went on....but it was certainly not the Majesty! I admit I was a little concerned after reading the reviews, but the minute I stepped foot on her, all worries were gone! ... Read more

I was looking for a cruise that sailed on my partners birthday, so this was the one that I choose, for being near our city and on the same date. Embarkation was real smooth, though it would have been nice to get more information on ... Read more

Got a great deal, but truly in this case you get what you pay for. Small ship, only a little single saltwater pool. 1 out of every 3 or 4 deck chairs has broken bands that make it very uncomfortable. Food is great, we had one server ... Read more

I have frequently taken the RCCL Majesty of the Seas on the 3 day weekend cruise and have always loved that ship. Now that that ship isn't available out of Miami anymore, I was pleased to see the Empress of the Seas is now available. ... Read more

We just returned from the January 23rd sailing on the Majesty of the Seas, a four-night cruise to the Bahamas and Coco Cay. It is important to keep this cruise in proper perspective considering the price of about $45 a day (inside cabin) ... Read more

From friendly and helpful. The food from breakfast to dinner was top notch. Our dining room staff were the best ever. Marichu, Mya, and Beje were great! The shows were pretty much typical cruise show productions. The piano bar pianist ... Read more
