My family and I have been to Nassau several times, so the port was nothing new to us. We have never sailed on Royal Caribbean other than 25 years ago, we have always chosen Disney. Needless to say, we were skeptical about trying Royal ... Read more

This was my 7th cruise on Royal Caribbean and I am now a platinum member. Once again the cruise line did not disappoint. From the moment you arrive the friendly atmosphere is a cut above. The staff are all very friendly, from the room ... Read more

After booking this cruise, I started seeing some negative reviews concerning the age of the ship, etc., so I was a little apprehensive that maybe I had made a mistake choosing this ship as our first cruise. I need not have worried. Yes, ... Read more

The ship is small and expect not to be able to use the pool due to the large number of people and children and very small pool. The Staff is excellent and will meet any expectation you have . If you are inactive and only want the shows ... Read more

Family gathering. We have been on cruises with Viking. This is not a Viking cruise. You get what you pay for period. The drinks were great, the service was very good . The food was of poor Quality. Not because of the preparation ... Read more

Enjoyable cruise for my wife and I. But, not up to RCCL's usually very high standards. The ship is older (1996) than most in the fleet. However, it was very well maintained. Embarkation and debarkation were both quick and easy. The ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the location (Bahamas) and length of stay. We wanted a quick get away and not be too expensive for a cabin with balcony. Had a wonderful time on the Dolphin encounter tour in Nassau and the Glass ... Read more

Our family traveled on the Empress of the Seas on June 30th. We had a party of 7; 4 kids and 3 adults divided in two cabins which we were lucky to get side by side on the 3rd deck. My husband and I have been in several Royal Caribbean ... Read more

I must start out by saying this was my first cruise and I had no idea what to expect. First the positives. Embarkation was super easy. Everything went smoothly and we were on the ship within ten minutes. This was a family vacation and two ... Read more

After reading all the negative reviews on Empress of the Seas, my husband and I were ready to cancel our sailing. I’m so glad that we didn’t. We’ve sailed on many Royal Caribbean ships from the Majesty to the Allure and ... Read more

Empress was better than I anticipated. After reading some of the initial responses I was very nervous about taking this ship. Let me start by saying it is a smaller ship so you can't expect big ship things. Your trip we be what you make of ... Read more

1. If your looking at a picture to see what your room looks like and it has a couch in it (ha!!!!). that's not going to happen there are none. So the pictures are misleading, you have your hard back breaking bed that's up against the wall ... Read more

My daughter chose this cruise for us because of price and dates of travel. This was our 16th cruise, and our first on Royal Caribbean. We've traveled on several cruise lines, but NCL has always been our preference, where we are Gold ... Read more

We choose this cruise last minute. We love Royal Caribbean and felt we needed a little break. We also have never cruised during the summer since it is warm at home why go where it is warmer. This will be my last summer cruise. It was ... Read more

Just sailed Jun 25 2016. Royal Caribbean got us to port late, left us stranded and multiple pleas from bus of passengers for assistance including one in wheel chair. This was shocking to be ignored. Customer service finally helped me ... Read more

For an older ship, the Majesty is in pretty good condition. The pool deck, restaurants, bars, theater, and other common areas looked good. Beware of the pictures and descriptions of cabins!!! We had 4 cabins on two different decks. All of ... Read more

This was our 9th Annual Family Weekend Cruise. We all live in Orlando but chose to drive 4 hours to Miami to go on Enchantment (for the third time) rather than the older Majesty of the Seas that is now in nearby Port Canaveral. We wanted ... Read more

Majesty is certainly smaller and older than most we have sailed on, but has been very well cared for. The ship is clean throughout. Recent renovations include an enhanced pool area (including water slides) that the young ones will really ... Read more

I would give this cruise a 4.5 overall. We had a great time and would sail on this ship again. The cruise before us docked 3 hours late at 10am due to rough seas so embarkation was a mess. Long lines everywhere and when we finally got ... Read more

Went on Majesty of the Seas for 4 night cruise from Port Canaveral. It was excellent! Boarding was delayed 1.5 hours due to ship coming in late because of rough seas but that is not RCL's fault and we were notified via text. Ship was ... Read more

I made the mistake of reading reviews a couple of nights prior to our cruise and started to have second thoughts. Just like anything else in life, your experiences cannot be compared to anyone else's and it's all about what you make of it. ... Read more
