We chose this cruise because of the timing based on everyones schedule. We also thought that the pricing was pretty decent for a quick 3 night cruise to the Bahamas. We had 8 of us on board. This included a set of grandparents and 2 ... Read more

I sailed on Enchantment of the Seas in August, and wanted to experience another ship when choosing a birthday present for my best friend. I booked Majesty of the Seas because I figured it would be a good, short weekend itinerary. What I ... Read more

Majesty, one of the smallest, oldest RCCL ships... I had lower expectations for the ship based off the age and size of the ship as well as other reviews but it was fine for a short 4 day sailing. I'd have no issue sailing on it again. My ... Read more

We booked this cruise VERY last minute, so it was an excellent deal. That wasn’t the reason for going, however. Due to some strokes and other medical issues, my husband wasn’t doing well and we had missed our cruise that was ... Read more

We were looking for a cruise out of Cape Canaveral and decided on the Majesty. I was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews - but we were extremely happy. The staff was awesome. The ship, while showing its age a little, was ... Read more

My wife and I chose to do this cruise as a quick getaway for our 10th wedding anniversary. We have sailed with Carnival several times but have always wanted to try RCI and the price of this cruise was too good to turn down. We were a ... Read more

This was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. Without having other ships to compare this to, I'm not sure how helpful my review will be. We had an outside cabin on the 3rd deck with a porthole window. Our room steward was ... Read more

We have only cruised twice before and both times we were on the Disney Fantasy. We had high expectations for Royal Caribbean based on feedback from friends. We splurged for a junior suite on Enchantment of the Seas (7666). I will say ... Read more

Everything was wonderful except......... BAD: Our room #9630(deck 9) was right below the pool side party area (deck 10). The loud noise from music, foot thumping, chairs moving made it practically impossible to sleep. The white party ... Read more

As the other reviewers have stated, this is a small ship. Knowing this, we weren't expecting too much other than to relax a few days and spend a day in Key West. However, the Empress exceeded all expectations. The small size worked for us! ... Read more

Chose for a quick get away at a very good rate. Basic inside and outside rooms are too small for the bed. You must climb over to get on it. Frame and mattress were worn and uncomfortable. Room was not maintained. Worst was the cheap ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were very happy we tried it-- had a great time! The ship, Empress of the Seas, is the smallest in the RC fleet; accommodates 1800 guests, and therefore not overwhelming. Experienced cruisers might find the ... Read more
