We paid a small fortune for what was supposed to be a two-days-in-havana cruise. THIS CRUISE IS NOT TWO DAYS IN CUBA!! We spent a half day in Cuba (only Havana, because there is not a lot of time to go anywhere else) before the sun went down and it became too dark to see the sights. Day two is from midnight to 2:00am, which isn't a "day" at all. Very misleading Royal Caribbean! Havana walking tour was excellent and Cable beach in Nassau was picture perfect. This ship, however, was disappointing. It's small, old, and rundown. It is not a smooth sailing ship at all. You can feel every wave. The interior cabins are cramped and falling apart. The food was good at times in the sit down place, but inconsistent. The front of the restaurant is next to the very loud (and just as bad) karaoke lounge. Not a quiet dinner at all. We asked for a table in the back of the restaurant on the next night and ended up right over engine or something like that. It felt like riding in a buggy all night. The buffet was good for breakfast, but just so-so for dinner. We couldn't wait to get off this cruise and finally relax in Florida for a couple of nights before going home. I will spend my money elsewhere next time. To give credit where credit is due, we had no issues with the service. Staff was friendly and helpful. And they put the Browns game on the big screen, which was, by far, the best part of being stuck on that ship. Read Less

I sailed on the Majesty of the Seas in December 2018 on the 5 Day Havana Overnight Cruise - and what a disappointment it was. I was so excited about my trip which ended up to be a cruise of sailing up and down the coast of the Florida - so glad a paid for that. While I realize that weather is not anyone's fault but and the safety of the passengers and crew are important, and a change was needed but don't not compensate for getting what you paid for. I paid for two days in Havana and didn't even get one and then just sailed up and down the coast of Florida. I could have booked a beach vacation if that is what I wanted. I could go on and on about the mess this cruise was - I booked an excursion in Havana that was supposed to 9 hours and was only about 8 hours with no explanation as to why. In addition to this there were so many other issues - we left the Port late by about 2 1/2 hrs, with no explanation, and when I reached out to Royal Caribbean about all the issues I find out it was due to the fact that they were loading water onto the ship - don't you think this should be done prior. Not to mention that the rooms on on the small side, we were only two people and were tight in there ( only one person was able to get dressed at a time) I can only imagine if there were more than two people in the room. The ports of call were Key West and Havana and yet we spent most of the time at sea - while sea days are nice on cruises to such close locations all the time at sea is not necessary, While stuck on the ship sailing up and down the coast of Florida, the stench on some the decks was absolutely discussing and with no explanation as to why. In addition some of the lower decks were flooding - which probably caused the stench. The only positive was the crew on the ship ( wait staff, cruise director and entertainment staff) were nice as could be and tried their best.. Even with this the Headliner shows were not the best - two comedians who were not even funny, one was even outright rude and disgusting and one who would not have been funny had it not been for the passenger that was chosen to help out with his act. After all this when I reached out to Royal Caribbean it took almost 2 weeks for someone to get back to me and then they were nasty as anything, Should I ever go on another cruise I will think twice before sailing with Royal Caribbean, Read Less

My spouse and I are second-time cruisers, our first being a California Coastal cruise on the Grand Princess. We chose this cruise due to the scheduled overnight in Havana. Without that attraction, we would never have considered cruising on Majesty of the Seas at the price point offered. Nevertheless, we're glad we went. Majesty is among the oldest of Royal Caribbean’s active fleet of over two dozen ships, and among the smallest. As I’d read negative reviews of this ship on Cruise Critic and other sites, I did not have high expectations. But I was pleasantly surprised by several aspects of life on an older, smaller ship. First, the crew to passenger ratio allows for more personalized service. The ship’s tour we took on our second day made clear that even small ships require constant care and meticulous planning. Our room attendant, Herman from Nicaragua, made sure our small cabin (7546, with an ocean view) was kept clean and orderly. At dinner each night, we had the same waiter and assistant, Cany from India and Shandy from the Philippines, in the Starlight dining room. The food there was never less than very good and at times excellent, if a bit mainstream. Each course was delivered with optimal timing – we were neither left waiting nor feeling rushed. The Windjammer buffet was about what one would expect of a mid-level buffet restaurant. We only used it for quick breakfasts and our initial meal after boarding. Again, the attentiveness of the service will win over all but the most jaded. There are a few more options for the hungry: Sorrento’s offers nearly round the clock pizza of middling quality; Compass Deli has Continental breakfast, lunch sandwiches (including about the best egg-salad sandwich I’ve ever eaten) and light desserts; and Johnny Rockets – a 1950s-style burger joint which costs extra. I would not recommend the latter - the burgers are fine but the fries mediocre, not worth the extra cost. Our major complaint is about the ship's internet - it's highly throttled and we were unable to load the web-cam where our dog was being boarded, either on our phones or the ship's computer nook. The desktops there are older with badly out of date internet browsers. In the end, I thought of Majesty as akin to an old pair of leather shoes: a bit scuffed, maybe resoled a few times, but familiar, and comfortable to walk in for miles. We chose to hoof it on our own in Key West, making a stop at the Little White House before some drinking and dining. After we re-boarded, the captain announced that - due to an approaching storm - our scheduled overnight in Havana was being cut short - instead of Thursday 8:00am - Friday 1:00pm, we would be leaving shortly after midnight. Subsequently, the stopover was further reduced and we wound up leading at 6:00pm Thursday. Fortunately, we had chosen the morning Old Havana Sightseeing Tour. That morning, we made our way to the theatre, then waited at least a half-hour before we departed the ship. The lines at Sierra Maestra terminal moved at a reasonable pace, the border agent stamped my passport, took my photo, and welcomed me to Cuba. Then it was more waiting until we boarded our tour bus and met our guide, Daily (pronounced DYE-lee). She was very knowledgeable as she guided us to the Cristo de la Habana statue, La Cabaña fortress, Colon Cemetery, San Jose market (where the vendors can haggle like born capitalists), and the Plaza de la Revolución. Although by now the official tour was complete, Daily offered to extend it, and those of us who opted to stay on were driven to La Moneda Cubana – one of the private restaurants that have sprung up in Cuba in recent years. Meals there run about $20 per person, and we enjoyed about the best meal we’ve ever had at that price point. To top things off, we were even treated to live music. My overall impression of Havana was that of a city which has definitely seen better days, but that’s on the mend (new construction and refurbishment of existing structures were happening all around). The infrastructure was not as bad as we’d been told, and some of the roads are in better shape than their Ohio counterparts. The most disappointing site was the constant presence of litter, and I saw several people – not tourists – tossing wrappers to the ground. Nonetheless, the Cubans we encountered were nice to each other and to newcomers alike. We plan to return. Although I regretted we would not be staying overnight, weather events are unavoidable and the crew really rose to the occasion during our full day at sea Friday. Read Less
