I have been on over forty (40) cruises on a variety of ships but mostly with Royal Caribbean. The cruise on the Empress of The Seas was by far the worse cruise experience ever. The ship is old, rusty, small with ceiling tiles falling from ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was an affordable, quick getaway as a solo traveler. Embarkation and disembarkation were swift and uneventful. Even at embarkation those folks who weren't gold and up members didn't have a very long line ... Read more

Great value with RC kicking in forth night free. This is a very old ship with a $50 mil. new paint job. The crew is poor even for the budget cruise market. Dining staff is the best, they try but somehow manage to always miss the mark. ... Read more

This was the promised "Grammie cruise' with one of the grandchildren. (Spending time with them one at a time is very special.) The Bahamas is a perfect place for a little boy who loves to be in the water! The port is close to home, so ... Read more

We needed a cruise to tide over our anticipation for our next fall cruise. Noting that the Majesty had recently been upgraded, we opted to go. Embarkation was quick and painless. didn't oversell the embarkation photo. For an older ... Read more

This cruise was chosen because we were only in Orlando a short period of time and decided the cruise fit into our itinerary. We've cruised on the Majesty before so we didn't think twice about re-booking it. The itinerary wasn't a concern ... Read more
