Appeared to be a good value for the money. We were very disappointed in the inconsistent service, had breakfast several mornings in the dining room and often had to wait "forever" to get the food and often the order came minutes ... Read more

We just got back from our trip and as a first timer on Royal Caribbean, I was really hoping to be impressed by the ship, as I had heard good things about RCI. Pros- Staff was lovely. They went over and beyond and always helpful. Crepes ... Read more

Smokers everywhere and no enforcement of smoking areas. Did not show movies as scheduled. Food was good. I loved royal Caribbean in the past... but this smoking experience has tainted me. It's too bad. They need to just ban smoking instead ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise and by far the worst. Other people in our group have been on as many as 12 cruises. I am extremely disappointed in Royal Caribbean. The ship is nice. It is easy to get around. There is a lack of outdoor ... Read more

Having cruised with Carnival and Disney prior to sailing Majesty of the Seas, I spent a ton of time researching the ship before our family vacation and had reasonable expectations going into the trip. To begin, I will say that Majesty of ... Read more

Kids ran wild all over the ship. It seemed more like a booze cruise than an RCL ship usually does. Getting a meal has to be planned as the buffet and dining room have very limited hours. The Buffet should have a bit more organization as ... Read more

We have been on Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity. RCI was our favorite but after this cruise on Majesty of Seas I would have to say we don't have a favorite anymore. Embarkation took about 25 minutes so wasn't too bad ... Read more

Just a very short review of our trip on Majesty last week. We got to the port on Monday about 11 am, and dropped the truck at the Park and Cruise, hopped the shuttle and were there in just a few minutes. Embarkation was simple and ... Read more

Well, I guess from what I'm reading you have to sail on Freedom class or larger to get a cruise like they advertise from RC these days. This was an absolute 2 out of 5 experience from beginning to end. I was so disappointed. Let me ... Read more

The friendly crew members was the best thing about our cruise. They were so kind and helpful and worked really hard. My family and I had heard that Royal Caribbean was a step above Carnival. We would disagree with that. We were ... Read more

The ship was the most boring cruise ship I've been on. The activities were repetitive and not very many activities for young adult (21-30). The island of Haiti was very disappointing, didn't get to experience real Haitian culture like on ... Read more
