Booked this cruise while onboard the Serenade Jan 2018, Departed Oct 29, 2018 from Tampa, Port was great fast boarding, schooner bar was open. This was our first Junior Suite, nothing to brag about, I have stayed in Balcony rooms that were better. Ship was scheduled to depart at 4:30PM when I booked, we did not depart until after 7PM. I was sitting in Casino at 9:30PM still was not open. First lets start with casino NO slots tournaments the whole cruise. Nightly lottery no lottery cards, they pick your numbers. Bar staff and casino staff were excellent. JS had only 2 electrical outlets, cannot view your account on the tv, have to go down to guest services wait inline to inquire. No menu on tv for ordering or room service. Elevator does not stop on deck 5 or six, when you get off you either have to take steps up or down. this is the short list, need to retire this bucket for sure. Will cruise with royal again and again but not on this ship. Read Less

To begin with, I have been on several cruise ships but I must say this has been by far the worst of my experience. Not all was horrible, the service we received from our dining and room service staff was amazing other than that everyone seemed unhappy. My boyfriend and I chose this ship as a last minute vacation for my birthday so we had literally no other options due to the short time frame we decided to book. Majesty of the seas is an older and smaller cruise ship so we felt every bit of sea motion throughout our 5 day vacation if we could call it that. For starters the rooms are really tiny and there is not may activates to do the many days you are at sea. This particular boat in my opinion is better geared towards families and older age range about 40 years/ up. The game activities and shows the boat offered were 60's and 70's themed so most times we had no clue as to what was going on. We spent a lot of our time in our stateroom (on vacation yay!) or at the pool bar. Needless to say that's not where my horrible experience came into play. As you know on your cruise the internet is non existent unless you pay $20/ day as well as when you reach your destinations other that that nothing. So a day or two into the cruise my boyfriend stayed in the room and I headed to the bar and ordered a drink which are not expensive at all. After paying I receive my receipt. Letting my receipt sit on the counter as I tasted my drink another guest on the cruise mentioned that I need to make sure to fill in all lines on the receipt whether I tip or not because they will try to "finesse" their tips. As soon as he pushed the pen in my direction and initiated to draw a line through the tip the bar staff came over very aggressive towards the guy saying no you don't do that ,because you don't know her. I immediately intervened and stated that I always tip and proceeded to tip $2.00 as I only order 1 drink. As the trip continues I purchased a few more drinks as I do not drink often I thought well its a vacation so why not. Disregarding the other guys remarks as I am too trusting of a person and think people are honest I was I was just signing receipts. At times not leaving a tip or crossing out the tip line as I was not done drinking. In addition, there was another financial mishap including a unknown charge on my boyfriends onboard card which they immediately taken care of. Now we are at the end of our trip and we receive our invoices. Everything seem to be correct until 2 days after the trip I have over $300 additional charges from majesty of seas broken down into about 4 different charges that were unauthorized on my end. Furious I called the RC and the representative I spoke with stated didn't know much of where they came from and stated that they "could be" preauthorized charges on the cruise ships end or tips. So I then inform her their is 4 separate charges and no way I would tip $300.Furthermore why are there 4 separate "pre authorized" charges anyway usually it will be 1 charge but that is released back into your account. The payments were processed. She had no response. I hung up and immediately called my bank and at this very moment I am still trying to dispute those charges. The other guest was right and I have been finessed! Please Pay attention, this is really upsetting!! Read Less

Boarding in Tampa was quick and easy. They were basically waiting on people to check in at about 1:30 when we got there. The cruise director Patricio was fantastic. The live music, not so much. The DJ was great at the pool but then sometimes a band would play and it was essentially "island music" background music from a keyboard. They didn't really sing and certainly did not get the crowd into it. The band name was something like Umba. All of the activities like trivia, belly flop contest and karaoke were all awesome. Dinner in the dining room was fine. As usual, they are slow on bringing bar drinks and soda so its always better to fill before you go in. Especially slow for soda at breakfast. The couple times we ate in the Windjammer it was kinda cold. It would have been nice if there were more freestyle soda machines (there is one on 4 and one on 12 I think it was). The ports were fantastic. Key West was fun (we took the Hop On Hop Off trolley). It was Fantasy Fest!! Havana was amazing and quite an experience. It took about half hour to get through immigration. We exchanged $180 ($65 CUC was for our tour) and we did not have enough for souvenirs after lunch and giving various tips and buying a couple things in the City so we had to scramble at the port to exchange more money. My advice is to exchange well more than you think and then just exchange any you don't need back. There are plenty of tellers to exchange back when you are ready to go back on the ship. In Cozumel we did the semi sub reef explorer which was worth the money, and then we took a taxi to Money Bar to snorkel and hang out. This was a great trip. Yes the ship is old and yes the rooms are small, but you're on vacation! Read Less
