I found a great deal online and want to try the cruise so I booked this one. I’m from Bangkok and live in the States for a year so this is the chance! The food, really awesome. Almost everything was super delicious! Love them so much, especially Seafood!!!!!! I got the excursion at Atlantis, it was amazing! All the slides and water rides. So much fun! Another excursion is stingray cay, love the sting rays! We learnt about sting rays and gotta touch them gently, feed them as well! The water was so clear, a bit cold but it’s okay. It’s not deep as well about 4-5 ft. Lifejacket for kids are provided plus snorkeling gear, would be better to bring your own too in my opinion. They did not fit me. Lastly, I love Champaign, Wine, Activities, Foods, and the Services/Activities here so much. I dont want to leave the ship!! Can’t wait to be back!! Read Less

Exciting! That’s what I’d call hopping on a cruise for the first time. Nice to go, Book through Costco Travel and get a good deal. After going through all a few key boarding procedures that include getting our picture taken by a professional photographer, putting on a wrist band and given our access cards to the rooms, we started exploring our boat. It didn’t feel like we were inside a boat at all. It felt more like a luxury hotel with see through elevators. Our Ocean view deck room was great: comfortable bed, safe box, minibar, movies on demand and the ensuite bathroom that was small but pleasant. The Royal Caribbean staff is really friendly and their maintenance is really appreciable. I loved their food at wyndyamar. The staff was polite and friendly in understanding the need of each guest on the cruise. I felt little disappointed at dining room as of menu selection is much more like american dining. Apart from that I felt each and every corner is appreciable. Its Value for money. It was sad to leave. Read Less

We booked an Owner's Suite - room 1020. ** DO NOT BOOK THIS ROOM ** This room is directly under the Windjammer restaurant. In room 1020, you get to enjoy 24-hours of carts banging through doorways, equipment being dragged across the floor and Lord knows what else. I cannot emphasize this enough - DO NOT STAY IN SUITE 1020 on Majesty of the Seas. Also, NEVER order room service. You will get whatever scraps they can pull of the Windjammer buffet line, let it get nice and cold, then deliver it to your room for $7.95 + 18% gratuity. If you have mobility issues - DO NOT BOOK THIS CRUISE. My wife has MS and is limited to using a scooter. Navigating though the ship is nearly impossible on a scooter. The elevators are always full of other guests, the tables in the casino are completely inaccessible to someone in a wheelchair, and there is no handicap-specific seating anywhere on the ship. We were 'honored' to be invited to the Captain's table for dinner. The table situated in the middle of the Main Dining room, surrounded by other tables and chairs. My wife could not use her scooter to get to the table. Instead, we had to deal with the embarrassment of my wife having to try to walk while supporting herself on chairs and the server stations. There are so many little things that made this one of the most frustrating, non-relaxing cruises I've been on. Really feels like a complete waste of money. Read Less

This was a mother daughter trip. We chose this ship based on the length of the cruise and the fact that it left from Cape Canaveral (which was driveable). The ship was small enough that my elderly mother could navigate it well enough. The layout of the ship was a little more difficult than some of the larger ships. There was only one elevator to the soft drink machines. I ended up just using the steps instead. The food was mediocre. Even our head server did not have many good words for the selections. She claimed that most options were dry. The staff were great though. The ship is headed to dry dock in January. It needs an update. We had fun though. We did find the theater seats to be very uncomfortable. We also did not realize that the entire starboard side of the ship is smoking anywhere outside. We had to cross the ship just to avoid the smoke. Read Less

Wait staff in dining room provided excellent service and attention, as did room steward. The food on the cruise was extremely good except for the pizza in Sorrentos. Only once did I see the deli bar open next to them. Music on this cruise left a lot to be desired. The only positive was the band Rockport. Unfortunately they performed in the Centrum which was not conducive to sitting and listening or really to dancing. While dancing in the Centrum you would often find yourself in the way of people using the stairway. They were a much better band and provided much better music than the Latin band in Boleros. The times I walked into Boleros there were only a few people. I think Rockport should be in Boleros and have those time slots rather than pretty much through the dinner times. The calypso band on deck did a good job entertaining poolside guests. The woman in the piano bar was much too loud and sang all songs in one voice style. Of all the cruises I have been on (12) this is the first time I did not enjoy the entertainer in the piano bar. She was a far cry from Fernando, who played and sang on the Empress of the Seas in September of 2016. The person doing your DJing played basically one style of music most of the week (geared toward modern day young people). On Monday evening in the Spectrum lounge he did an excellent job of playing music that fit across many age groups. It was heart warming to see many of those from the "Buddy group" dancing as well. (They were an extreme highlight for us on this cruise.) As a 60+ year old who goes out dancing 2-3 times each week, I was disappointed most of the rest of the week with the Dj's choices. This included the evening deck party and the Quest after party. As a matter of fact, at the Quest After Party, my friend and I were the only ones dancing as others stood around talking. The first song wasn't too bad, but the next song started with the same kind of crap music. We walked out in extreme disappointment. Other than Rockport we did not find hardly any music to dance to the whole week. That is a sad commentary. I was pleasantly surprised to experience comedy on this cruise. Gary Cosette (sp) was one of the funniest comedians I have seen in a long time. His late night and headliner shows were some of the highlights of this cruise. If someone would like to talk further about these things, please feel free to call me. Read Less

Only bad thing is they only have 2 FREESTYLE Coke machines on deck 12 an there would be a line. If you get the beverage package you could use it at Starbucks, so drink up an eat Up. Great trip never last as long as it should. Didn't have any luck in casino but saw people walking away with large amounts of cash.

We wanted a short cruise to get away. Coco Cay did not handle my small scooter at all due to the sand. My husband's large scooter with big tires went through it good. If all the sand was packed down, my scooter would have gone through it OK. It was a pretty ship. We had rain in Nassau so we stayed on the ship. The food was good and all the wait staff and stateroom staff was excellent. The elevator system is very bad. You can not get to the 14th. floor on the side of the ship which has the pizza and compass rooms there. You must go on opposite side of ship, then cross over outside to get other elevator to go up there. When it rained and very windy you can not go outside as doors were locked. It was good to get away for four days. Read Less

Took this 4 day cruise on a casino package. The staff were friendly and the ship being an older ship was clean and there were ongoing areas closed off for painting on the pool deck at times. There was plenty of activities that you didn't get bored. The MDR food was very good, but the Windjammer on this cruise was a flop. The food was cold at times and overcooked or under cooked. All lunch days at the carving station had meat that was dry and tough. Not sure if they have a new galley crew, or Royal is cutting corners now, but the Windjammer was a huge flop on this cruise. It seemed to be the same stuff in the Windjammer everyday and in the past it was mixed up with different items to choose from. Curry seems to be a staple food and everyday it was there. The pasta was always undercooked. I have been on plenty of cruises with Royal, and the Windjammer by far was not up to Royal Standards I have seen in the past. We had no issues with Windjammer staff and it was always pretty clean... I can't stress enough of how the Windjammer Food Quality and Choices were my only complaint. The MDR on the other hand was very much up to the Royal Standards I have seen in the past. The food was hot and the service was outstanding by our waiter Val. He was one of the best that we have seen. The headwaiter was also very attentive to make sure guests were happy as he has been in the past. All staff members on the ship were very friendly and always said hello. Our cabin was 2507 which was a handicapped accessible cabin that had plenty of room to get the scooter in and out of easily. The cruise director Ricky, Activities Director Mo, and his team were awesome ! Always something to do and get involved in. The nightly shows were great, but the comedy shows were my favorite. Kevi was awesome ! The casino hasn't changed much on this ship as it was a lot of give and no take. I am not sure they machines are really set to what they should pay back. Some ships you lose overall, but at least you get some back to extend your playing time and not lose it all as fast as this ship. Overall this was another great Royal Cruise, but they need to look into the Windjammer quality and bring back up to what it once was. Read Less

I chose Royal Caribbean for 5 reasons: 1. Affordably 2. Short trips for busy people 3. Royal's loyalty Rewards (Crown & Anchor Society and Casino Royal perks) 4. Great customer service. 5. Though huge, this ship is small enough for me to get my mother around w/out exhausting her. In July my mother and I boarded the MOS (Majesty of The Seas) for our 6th time. Shortly before sailing a medical issue required mom to be transported to a hospital by ambulance. Since I had trip cancellation ins. through my credit card company and not the cruise line, Royal ended up giving us $400 in vouchers for our next cruise. We immediately rebooked TWICE when she was well again. I took my mother on the MOS (Majesty of The Seas) . We went again Aug. 12th 12017. My mother won a little over $5,000.00 in the Casino and Royal upgraded us to a large room and send little gifts to us each day...still making up for her illness the prior sailing. Her illness had nothing to do with Royal and they did not have to do this for us...but they did and we are grateful. We went again August 25th 2017 and had a wonderful time. I'm not the biggest fan of Nassau, so our trip into town was quick (6-7 sailings to this port). As always, our favorite port is Coco Cay where we feed the fish in the ocean, float on the buoyant, teal salt water and let our troubles wash away. Since the MOS moved karaoke night out of the Bolero and into the Centrum, the attendance and participants are now greater and it's a blast to watch. From line dancing classes to comedy shows to sushi making classes, the MOS has it all. We often skip dinner in the formal dining room in favor of the ease of the Windjammer. Regardless of fine dining or buffet, service staff are always great and attentive and we are always well-cared for on the MOS. Read Less

We love the 3 and 4 day cruises from Port Canaveral. RCCL is the best, always clean and staff is outstanding. My wife is handicap and they go out of their way to assist her. We have been going to Coco Cay since 2002 and each year it gets better and better. Both the Windjammer and the Main dinning room were outstanding, the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make the cruise special. The entertainment was probably the best i have seen on any cruise. It was a mixture of musical concert one night and comedy the next night. We attended the top tier event (diamond member) and had a great time. The ship itself was clean and the artwork on display on deck 7 was beautiful. Was very impressed with how clean and neat Coco cay was, nice sunny day and good food. Looking forward to the upgrades that are underway. Read Less

This was a quick girls getaway to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday, and my friend's daughter's grad school graduation. My husband and I have sailed the Majesty a few times -the 1st was our Anniversary Cruise 18years ago. While she is an older ship - they work hard to keep her beautiful! We arrived at Port Canaveral at about 12:30 where parking was quick and easy, covered and close to the terminal. As a Diamond cruiser, there was no wait to check in, and because our paperwork was complete, we were straight through and on board in about 15 minutes. We were able to go straight to our cabins which were located aft on deck 9 near the spa facility. This proved to be a very convenient location, above the Spectrum Lounge where the quest was held, as well as the Chorus Line Theater, which is where the nightly shows were held. Our rooms were small - but comfy and cozy, and impeccably maintained by our room steward - Ortero, was his name I think. There was plenty of storage for toiletries in the vanity, as well as closet space. Our suitcases fit easily under the beds. A quick elevator ride down to deck 5, and a walk through the Schooner Lounge and we were right smack in the middle of the Atrium. The Casino was parallel to the Schooner lounge, and while you could smell the smoke, it did not overly offend. Dining Rooms are on deck 3 and 4 - One side of 4 is reserved for My Time Dining. We chose early seating, as we enjoy having the same wait staff for our meals - and they sure did not disappoint! We had a small issue on Day 1, but was quickly resolved by Pedro - the Restaurant Operations Mgr. Our Matre D' was very attentive - visiting us daily to ensure we were satisfied with the service. Our Head waiter Domingo and Asst Waiter Jeffrey were wonderful! They really went above and beyond to deliver the WOW! One thing I noticed on the this cruise is the portion size on the meals was much larger than on past cruises. As always, everything we were served was presented beautifully and delicious! I love that a cruise allows you to try items you may not have tried before. My sister is deaf, and everyone she encountered was absolutely wonderful - going above and beyond to make her feel special. Royal Caribbean also made arrangements for us to have an interpreter on board, who attended the muster drill and any other event we attended. She was wonderful as well - and incredibly talented as evidenced by her interpreting during the Ventriloquist and the Quest! The musical production shows were the norm, but the singers and dancers seemed to really be enjoying themselves, and were quite talented! The ports were CocoCay and Nassau. We booked a bungalow on CocoCay, which was worth every penny! We were transported by shuttle to a private beach, The bungalows were comfortable with an L shaped sofa, equipped with a cooler full of Evian water, 2 floating mats, and 2 lounge chairs. A menu was provided in our cabin the day before, and lunch was delivered right to the bungalow. Really nice touch. The day was beautiful, calm, and quiet. I could not help but indulge in a mid-day nap! One note - there never seemed to be staff at the embarkation desk. Even when there were there they told me they were closed. I was able to get the bungalow tickets from guest relations, after they never showed up in our room. In Nassau, we took a horse and buggy ride. It was not a good choice. The buggies were really dilapidated, and the tour was lame, simply going around a couple blocks with no real value. For example he advised 'there is a deli on that corner' . Afterward we happened upon a wonder tour guide who is normally a taxi driver. He gave us a wonderful insider's tour of Nassau - worth every penny! All in all - a really good trip! We have been on other cruise lies - but are loyal to Royal - They never disappoint! Read Less

1. We chose this cruise for the date, ports of call, starting/ending location and availability of ASL interpreters (requested 2 months in advance) 2. We absolutely loved The Pearl Island Beach Eay with Lunch excursion when we were in Nassau. The island was tiny but cozy and welcoming. It was not crowded or chaotic. The swimming cove is small but felt spacious. There was a floating trampoline and two other floating mats that several people could be on at once. There were also a few paddle boards and tandem kayaking that guests could take turns using (no extra cost that I observed- people were just getting on and off them without talking to the life guard. The staff was great on the island. My boyfriend proposed to me up at the top of the lighthouse and they allowed us to walk through the inside of the lighthouse and their photographer took pictures. We purchased two and they gave my fiancé an additional one for free with the words "She said yes!" printed on it. The lunch was simple but good (barbecued chicken, fried fish, rice, coleslaw and water or lemonade. We had our picture taken upon arrival and then some tasty rum punch. The boat ride over we had an entertaining guide who pointed out homes of the rich and famous as well as a few aspects about Nassau 3. The shopping in Nassau really shuts down between 5 and 6 - the people in the Straw Market that remain open after 5:30ish are kind of pushy and pressure you to come to their stall to purchase something. 4. The day at Coco Cay was fun also. We discovered there was no need to purchase the beach lounger for two or beach bed or beach bungalow. They were located kind f far from the main action and we had a golf cart shuttle to get there - it is possible to walk but long. We had great fun on the Wave Runners/jet skis. Lunchtime was a little chaotic partly because of a brief rainstorm. Finding covered seating was a challenge. The day at Coco Cay seemed to end too soon! 5. Meals in the dining room felt a bit rushed and while our meals were accurate, our waiters seemed distracted and not interested in us. 6. My fiancé celebrated his birthday and they didn't have the right name (even though they knew our room number and names and had known about his birthday when we booked our cruise)! Read Less

The Majesty itself is an older ship so things are a bit smaller and not as accessible. My mother is in a wheelchair which makes navigating a little rough. Once we learned where everything was, it wasn't overly difficult to plan a route to get there, it just takes a bit longer than if you could use the stairs or if the elevators had a better layout. The best thing about RCCL is the staff. They are amazing. On this particular cruise the best two were Nives from the dining room staff and Kitty from the cruise directors staff. Our cabin attendant was okay, but not the best we have had. The room was clean and we got everything we asked for. It was more of a personality thing. As usual the food was amazing. The downsides are simply that the ship is older which means that it has a funky layout. There was only one true accessible dance floor which is in the Spectrum(hardly any events were held in the Spectrum). The Boleros and Centrum both had steps to get to the dance floor. We had to carry my mother up and down the steps to the Boleros each time. It would be an easy fix for them to put a ramp in at least the Boleros to make it accessible. The Centrum would be harder/impossible to put in a ramp. The Viking also had no dance floor unlike on the other ships. My final issue is that they still allow smoking in the Casino on the Majesty. The problem is that the smoke doesn't stay in the Casino. It drifts into the Schooner and Centrum. RCCL needs to go to entirely smoking free ships(aside from designated outdoor areas). Read Less

Majesty is a quaint lil ship… Main issue is with dance floors and not being easy to access with a wheelchair…. Centrum is definitely many stairs and no way…. Boleros, I had two guys carry me up & down the stairs several times a day (it’s where the best music was!)…. Every time I had to pee, it was another trip up & down…. It would be very easy to ramp that floor on one side, no excuses … Spectrum is very nice, level floor, but not many public events for it …. I did use Spectrum a couple times for the Crown & Anchor specials…. This is the only Viking Lounge that I recall without a dance floor at all !!!!! …. Wowser, disappointed in that… Again, easy to fix…. Take up carpet in the outer edges where it’s wider, lay wood or tile, and walla, you have it! Windjammer service lacked… Not sure why dirty dishes are being left on tables, and no wiping of the previous diner…. I had to ask many times for the table to get a rag-cleaning before I could use it for my family. Fine dining service is exceptional!!! … Waiter Nives Pocucua from Crociatia is an asset to your company…. Bubbly, smiles, easy to talk with… She’s definitely in the right field of work … Food in all Royal ships has excelled the other cruise lines One of the wait staff in Windjammer that was extra helpful, on the opposite side where I normally sat, is Yahanna from China…. She has very large rimmed glasses, and a beautiful smile…. After a very large family left a table, Yahanna quickly cleaned the table so we could be seated… Her enthusiasm sparkled thru her eyes!… Eager to help Glane, from India, a Manager in Windjammer asked if we needed things…. Cares about his guests being happy …. Well-mannered, polite, eager to assist Kittie Heasom, activities staffer … Such a bouncy, energetic chrisma! … She made Triva anything but trivial !!!! …. Personality galore All these workers deserve a day off… How about it?…. They need some rest after dealing with the general public…. I know how hard it is to stay spirited, and engage with people who are less than polite, rowdy, and overall make your job harder… These should be rewarded with extra rest…. *grin* SMOKING in the Casino ruins it for the Schooner lounge and Centrum... Smoke does NOT know it's supposed to stay in the casino area.... Leaked into other areas.... Other Royal ships do NOT allow smoking inside at all, only ONE side on the pool deck .... I cannot enter the Casino because of this, disappointed... Security did find smokers sneaking into bathrooms and other places.... Smoking is a choice, and accommodations for them is necessary, yes, just not within an enclosed area. Read Less

We just got off the Majesty after going to Nassau and Coco Cay. This was our 3rd cruise so our only comparisons are to a Carnival cruise 6yrs ago and a week on the Oasis last year. We took our 7yr old son this time so wanted something short to see if he liked it (and so we did not lose our sanity!). Overall, I would say we had a good time and would recommend this itinerary and ship for people looking to go on a quick trip and not looking for many bells and whistles. The boat itself is older, some parts were recently updated, though I am not sure which. I know the kids splash area is new, though small. The pools are salt water which my son did not like and only went in for about an hour the whole trip. Also, in May the pool water was still cold. As far as amenities, this boat does not have too many. We spent a lot of time on the sports deck which consists of half a basketball court, 2 small soccer goals that could be moved around, 2 ping pong tables, a corn hole game and shuffleboard. Looking at the daily planner, there seemed to be a lot of activities for teens. My son was not into the Adventure Ocean group as he is shy and would rather stay with us. We did walk in there once, it was hard to see what the place had to offer due to how they had the walls built up. I did notice it is directly under the basketball court making it very loud in there. But kids probably don’t care. The “jogging track” is non-existent so if you want to run, use the treadmills. The cruise planner said it didn’t even open until 9am which doesn’t make sense to me. If I wanted to run (I have a broken foot and couldn’t), I want to do it before 9am!! We never looked at the fitness center or the spa so I can’t comment on those areas. Having the broken foot, I was on a knee scooter the entire time. Access for handicap people was lacking. The only automatic doors were those that led out to the pool. None of the side doors and bathrooms doors were automatic. This was fine for me as I could maneuver my scooter well. Also, the elevators were a pain to figure out which ones on which end went where. For example, our stateroom was on Deck 6 and only one set of elevators went there. The other set only went to 5 or 7. We ate in the Windjammer a bunch of times and I have to say, the food and service there was not good. Trying to find an open table, many of them were dirty and the staff was in no hurry to clear them off, even after we were sitting there waiting. When a guy did come to wipe the table down, I had to point out that the other half of the table was dirty. He wasn’t even going to wipe the other side! They also never picked up the salt shakers and wiped under them. Later at night the food was cold. Also, the boat serves Nestle(?) Vitality Enhanced Waters. These are basically flavored waters with Splenda in them. No where on the machine does it say it contains Splenda. I personally hate anything with artificial sweetener in it and was not happy that these were the only choices if you didn’t have any drink plan. There was traditional iced tea and lemonade, however. Overall, not a good Windjammer experience. The dining room on the other hand was very good. For those wanting to take alcohol on board, Rum Runners makes plastic flasks that can be stored in luggage. We actually bought a bottle of rum in Nassau, fully prepared to have it confiscated when we got back on. I put it on the belt, through the security scanner and no one said a word. I was quite shocked by this. I did buy pineapple juice at a little market there to make drinks with since they do not provide normal juices (see above). Positives: Special accommodations for me being on the scooter. Taken to front of lines, offered assistance once in Windjammer, very fast disembarkation, etc. Coco Cay was a nice experience. Taking the tender was very quick, both directions. Whole island was nice. Plenty of places to sit if you got there earlier. We rented snorkel gear ($40) and a floating raft ($14). For those who needed beach wheelchairs, there were plenty! I was quite pleased about this. I counted at least 25 which was way more than what our ship required. Overall, I will sail with RC again, just not on this ship. Having been on the Oasis once, those large ships are the way to go. This sailing did have a lot of bachelor/bachelorette parties and family reunion types. Lots of teenagers also. More of a party crowd, probably since it was short. Negative: No fridge in stateroom Reading lights in room broken Pool bathroom only had one stall working Dated ship, lots of gold décor Shore excursion lines was a disorganized mess. Had to keep asking staff what line was for what excursion. They were holding signs so no one could see them Read Less

An extended family picked this trip to do as a family birthday celebration. + The activities for kids were fantastic! + Also, the seniors seemed to love the shows. + And all the staff & services were superb! However, I wish there was: - SHOPS ONBOARD OPEN ALL DAY (shops were only open at night, and we missed shopping because we were at dinner and at shows in the evenings!) - MORE AFTERNOON EXCURSIONS (the only tours in Nassau that the cruises offers were in the morning), so we missed these, and then we had to scramble on Nassau to find an afternoon tours! - POST THE PHOTOS FOR A LONGER PERIOD (we never even saw the photos because they were barely up, and then they took them down... we never got a chance to buy our cruise photos. Are the photos online somehow???) - MORE VARIETY OF MOVIES ("Fences" is not a happy/vacation movie, why pick it? Why show it twice?). - ZUMBA? Can there be other fitness classes, such as zumba or pilates? - BINGO. There should be more Bingo games per night, and per day. People love these! Also, don't charge so much ($20!) to play! Read Less

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the price--as a first time cruiser, I didn't really consider that the age of the ship may be a factor in accessibility. My biggest issue was the bathrooms. Because it is an older ship, I suppose the bathrooms haven't been updated. Our stateroom was an OK size and had enough space to park my electric wheelchair and 3 beds. The bathroom layout was not great, I needed help to use both the toilet and the shower because of the awkward angle and the fact that the shower bench seat provided was VERY tiny (and I am a very small person!) even though I can do it myself under normal circumstances. Elevator access was a nightmare. There were many times we waited 15+ minutes for a single elevator during peak times before deciding to just go waste time somewhere else on the deck before going back to our room. The only (and I mean ONLY) public bathroom I could use independently was a single on the main deck in the center of the ship near customer service. I checked many other bathrooms but none had a handicap stall. It made "planning" restroom visits very stressful. The service was great--our cabin steward was so kind, thoughtful, and polite. The attendants also made embarkation/disembarkation very smooth and let us cut ahead in line. They were also very cheerful folks! At one port of call, the seas were very rough and we were forced to tender. It was a little scary to drive my wheelchair across the moving gangway but we managed it and enjoyed our excursion. I contacted disability services before booking and they notified me that complimentary beach wheelchairs were first-come-first-serve, and that none were available at Blue Lagoon Island (they do have them at CocoCay). So I spent a few hundred dollars to rent my own from another vendor, but it was heavy, bulky, and hard to put together. However, I wouldn't have been able to get around the beach at Blue Lagoon Island without it. Regular wheelchairs and sand do not work! I would recommend considering ports of call that have wheelchairs already available at the excursion if possible because it was a big hassle, or plan to stay on the ship. Windjammer dining was hit or miss, it was usually pretty crowded but always had a decent selection to choose from. I was not impressed with their breakfast. We usually ate dinner at the main dining room and the food was excellent! However the portions were abnormally large and I felt like I wasted a lot of food. Overall: Issues with accessibility for full time wheelchair users, but not impossible. Service was A+, I'll definitely consider another Royal Caribbean cruise on a much newer ship with more wheelchair-friendly excursions. Read Less

Only thing good about this cruise was waiter Frankie, and Staterooms attendant Dubay. Started with no help with questions on accessibility, couldn't talk to a person, only email correspondence for accessibly questions. I would say that is discrimination against handicap. If you wasn't handicap you could talk to a person, if you were you had to email. Paid for 5 soft drink pkgs, which we couldn't use (except for coke, or sprite) until we got our cups which was in the staterooms, and we didn't get to the room until 3pm. While others who waited to buy pkg when they where on the ship, received their cups immediately. 2000+ passengers and only 2 machines on board. 1 was out of service before we even left port, 2nd was empty of all most all products by the 2nd day. Had to stand in line always at least 5 people waiting to use 1 machine, which was always out of ice. Machines were on the 12th deck which wasn't accessible to wheelchairs, on windy days, which my dad who I bought a pkg for was in. Asked for a refund and all anyone would tell me was they are sorry they couldn't do that. Couldn't get wheelchair down hallway for Munster drill due to the luggage in hallway. Only after Dubay moved every piece of luggage was there room for wheelchair to fit. 1st day in statesroom, there was a used bandaid under the bed. GROSS!!!. Damp carpet, in 2nd statesroom, Sorry again. Rooms smelled like sewer. 1st night in dining had a pitcher of water spilled on us. Sorry again. Employees where uninformed, numerous times we got the answer of " I don't know" or the wrong information. Asked for a beach wheel chair on island, had to transfer dad to 3 different ones before they found one that didn't have a flat tire. Then attendant didn't even inform us you needed to pull on the sand instead of push. Poor customer service. After I stood in line for 20 min at snorkel shop to rent gear, the girl told me I needed to go to excursion hut first. Went there, waited in line and was told, once again I was misinformed. Went back to the snorkel shop, waited in line, again, to be told, Sorry, yet again. I rented a wheelchair from a company who told me to leave in the stateroom, yet your staff told me there wasn't wheelchairs available to get him off ship. I had to pay extra to have wheelchair picked up at different location, come to find out there was wheelchairs available. Only good thing about this cruise was Frankie, Dubay, and time with my family.

I have never cruised before and feel motion sick on a lawn swing! My husband spent 27 years in the Navy and wanted to see how it felt not to work at sea. The 4 day raise was enough to to let me determine if I could enjoy a longer trip. We knew the ship was older; we were pleasantly surprised by how well kept it was and easy to navigate in the corridors and public areas. The salad stations were well stocked; main course menus had variety; desserts were plentiful. Entertainment in the Schooner Bar by Pedro was excellent; the musical and dance shows were great and the comedy and magic shows were very entertaining. The Cruise Director was hysterical. ALET llwJHKtXreA the staff were friendly and helpful. Only two negative comments to make: 1. The food was not always HOT and by the time a seat was found it was just warm. Although desserts were plentiful and a good variety, they often lacked flavor (bread pudding was bland but the cream sauce delicious) 2. We were not aware our cruise period was Spring Break!!!! While I did not begrudge the students a good time on their break, I did mind the noise level and the fact the actual pool was monopolized the entire cruise by their use of it as a wading pool and drinking area. This was not a pretty sight for those families travelling with young children. We would have had no problem with changing our cruise dates IF we had been told at the time of booking to expect spring break kids. Read Less

This trip because of price as I have been on more than 21 cruises, most with Royal Caribbean. Didn't get off ship as been there, done that. My friends did and loved it. It's an older ship with great service. 4 day get - away, works for me. Looking forward to Oasis of the Seas and maybe try for the big new one coming out. Royal Caribbean has never failed to give super service. I love, love their rolls. I use a mobility scooter. No problem getting on or off. As always, their shows were great, even on this smaller ship.. I asked for several things from cabin steward and got them all, and with a very courteous smile. Also asked for favors at dining table, pasta for table etc. and it was done with a smile. If we felt that anything was not right, they tried to make corrections immediately. Read Less

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 supposed to leave on the 3rd. We were nervous about the lack of pre-planning, since travelling with someone who is medically fragile usually involves complicated logistics. Royal Caribbean could not have been more accommodating! We were unable to get a handicap-accessible state room, but we had plenty of space. Because of the smaller (these days…) size of the Majesty, we had no issues with getting around, and after the first day there was not much of a wait for elevators. Boarding was a breeze. There was an area for cruisers requiring wheelchair assistant, and wheelchairs waiting. They were very apologetic about the short wait for assistance, but there was room to sit down and the half hour flew by! We were scheduled for the later dinner seating, which was going to be a problem for my diabetic husband. Once the head waiter was able to assess the volume of diners at the early seating, he was happy to move us on a permanent basis! One drawback to the last minute situation, is that regular staterooms do not have refrigerators unless this is requested. We were advised that if it was needed for insulin storage, they would be happy to keep it at the front desk for us. Another issue resolved! Day 2, I’m not sure what happened to the planning for CocoCay . There were tables at breakfast, but many were empty because there wasn’t enough staff. The lineups for the tenders was hours long at times and I was really glad that my husband had decided to stay on board. The wait was worthwhile – the island was wonderful for snorkelling, my second passion after riding! I was able to rent a flotation device at the dive shack and I had my mask and fins with me. The fish were amazing, and better close to shore than further out. I booked a snorkel excursion for Nassau the next day- and I’ve never been disappointed with the fish there! We spent our evenings in the Schooner bar, where Pedro played classical guitar-everything from Bach to Beatles! ‘Abby’ (which is short for something complicated) was a delightful waiter and he served us and entertained at the same time! No complaints with the food , but I did miss the fancier restaurants offered by some cruises as an extra expense and nice evening out. I had a wonderful lamb meal one evening , so if it was memorable, it must have been excellent! Disembarking was as easy and seamless as boarding. The staff at both RC and at customs, could not have been kinder! We were very pleased with our ‘surprise’ vacation! TIPS: If you need refrigeration, ask ahead. If you require the early dining time, wait half an hour and you are likely to be able to change from the later one. If you are going to the private island, ask ahead of time what the best time for a tender might be. Or book and excursion and you will have automatic priority. If you smile at Abby in Schooner the first night- you have a friend for life! Read Less

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 food and poor quality that was not even served hot/warm all four nights. Drinks were very expensive and made up for any saving on your price and the per paid tipping was out of sight $27 a day for a couple. We did note the children's program was enjoyed by the little ones but the teens seem to have RUN of the ship. First time we have ever seen a "companion pet" can't wait for the pet pigs, cats, and snakes to join the small dog. Overall the quality was not what I would expect from Royal Caribbean Cruises. Rooms are too small disabled and not recommended for Seniors. Fine for a quick I don't care get a way or party crowd. Read Less

Three 70+ year-old mothers, each accompanied by their 50+ year-old daughters, all who have been friends for 50 years. Most of us had cruised previously, except one (my mom). When we embarked the ship, we were greeted nicely by crew members. Just a few feet away there was a table with blinking frozen drinks. I had purchased a liquor-included beverage package for $220 for four days, so I was psyched. However, when I showed the attendant my Sea Pass that indicates my beverage package, he told me that you have to pay for these drinks separately because they come in a souvenir glass! Thanks, but no thanks! When booking the cruise through Royal Caribbean on the phone, we specifically requested our three rooms be located together near an elevator bank, because a few have mobility issues. However, when we arrived at our rooms, we were almost the furthest walk away from the one elevator bank on our floor. And in the hallway down to our rooms was a large bump in the floor that at least one of us tripped or stumbled on every trip to and from the elevator. There were small signs on the walls advising caution, but some of us didn't notice them until someone pointed them out on day 3 or 4. Suggestion for Royal Caribbean: put red (or a different color) carpeting on the bumpy part of the rug to visually remind people as they walk down the long corridor, especially at night after a long day and/or a few drinks. The room was unfortunately as small as could be. Two separated twin beds, maybe a foot between them. The beds were firm, sometimes uncomfortably so. Room under the bed to store a large suitcase was a good feature. Pillows were sad sacks. Linens were adequate. Room was clean.One thing that irritated me was there were bottles of Evian water and soda, snacks and candy placed on top of the very limited dresser space. Of course, these items were like a hotel snack fridge - you use, you pay (with no prices shown), even though we had purchased beverage packages that included bottled water. After a day of working around this stuff, I tossed it all in the dresser drawers so we had more dresser/desktop space. Good thing we didn't want to put our things in the drawers. There was a small closet with shelving. Inside the closet is a small wall safe (large enough to hold an iPad Mini and a few other small items) that you program with your own personal four-digit PIN number. I used the same number as my cell phone lock, so I didn't forget it. There were about a dozen hangers to hang your clothes, and room on the floor for a bag or two.The bathroom is, of course, tiny as expected. The toilet seat looked worn and should be replaced. The shower was adequate, as long as you don't expect to bend over to shave your legs. Had to stick each leg out to shave which in turn soaked the bathroom floor. Some days we had a bathmat, other days we didn't. Why do they provide only one large towel person? Most women, if not men, need a body towel and a hair towel. So, ladies, be sure to ask your attendant for two extra towels every day.Our cabin attendant was friendly enough, although was sometimes difficult to understand. (I am a very patient person when it comes to language barriers, but it kept me from interacting with our attendant more than saying hello.) The one thing I asked was I needed to refrigerate some medicine. Our cabin attendant said he would take care of it, but when we got back to our room after dinner, there was no refrigerator or any indication that one would be coming. I went to Guest Services, spoke to a crew member there, who told me that he would have a refrigerator delivered to my room immediately. When I returned to my room later that even, the refrigerator was there as promised (free of charge). The food for breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer Cafe was cafeteria-style and okay. The omelet station was always a good choice. The one thing I didn't like there was the amount of flies around the food stations and at the tables. The food and service at the Starlight Restaurant was a step or two above the Windjammer Cafe. Our waiters were attentive (even feeding my mom her ice cream dessert one evening). They remembered our preferences for things after our first night. The food was good, but not outstanding. If you wanted lobster or filet Mignon, you had to pay extra for it, which we didn't bother. The only deficiency at dinner was the lack of bar service. Considering a few of us paid for a liquor package, the cocktail waiter didn't frequent our table much, usually just once during dinner. While we prepaid our tips when we purchased the vacation, we still felt obligated to leave a tip ($15 for six) at the end of each meal. While pre-paying tips seems like the easy way to go, we still tipped the staff each evening. On a good note, the Casino bartenders were excellent. They made great drinks, which, of course, encourages people to stay and play. The musical shows were average at best, but the Newlywed Game and Adult Quest activities were a hoot! One activity I strongly advise against is playing bingo. Yes, bingo! My mother and friends love bingo, so we went to play. There was a long line to wait to buy cards, which were very expensive ($11 per paper strip with three cards on it). They also offered electronic bingo machines that hold 30 games and needs no to interaction to play. These machines were $32 for one, $64 for two and get the third one free!! The most ridiculous thing of all is that bingo was only one -- yes, ONE (1) GAME!!! The letter "X." No $25, $50, $100 games. Not a coverall that takes a while. Just one game, the "X," for $500. There were probably 200 people there, spending probably an average of $20 at least, which would gross Royal Caribbean $4,000, not counting people buying drinks. It took some people 15+ minutes to buy their cards. It took LESS THAN 10 MINUTES for the one game to be played and won!!!!! This was the BIGGEST MONEY GRAB I have ever seen! I was disgusted that I bothered to participate in this charade. Royal Caribbean needs to review this activity and improve it. Charging people $64 for less than ten minutes for one game is outrageous!!!! Read Less

This was a 'Let's Get Away for our Anniv. and My Birthday' cruise. We did not plan on doing much except eating and drinking and relaxing. The ship is in good shape for her age. Everything was kept clean. The Christmas decorations were lovely. Food was good, not great, but very good. We had My Time Dining and chose to eat at the same table each night. Miguel our waiter from Mexico was wonderful. His asst. Dulce from Honduras was always on the ball with our wine orders and to keep the water glasses filled. I just wish RCI didn't push you on the first day to make reservations. That defeats the purpose of My Time Dining. It just happened that this time we chose to eat each everning at 7PM. Our room was laid out quite well for our needs. DH uses a small mobility scooter and sometimes it can be a challenge getting it in the room. Not so this time. I was able to back it up to the loveseat and it was out of our way. The bathroom is smaller than most other ships and storage is at a premium. There was plenty of storage space in the rest of the cabin. The beds are very comfortable and wer slept very well. Except for the last night when I kept waking up to check the clock afraid I would oversleep on disembarkation day. We stayed on the ship the first day in Nassau. Been there many times. It was very, very windy that day. My friends said they had a hard time just walking around in town with the wind. We did find a sheltered spot in the sun on deck 12 and read, people watched and dozed. In all of my times to Coco Cay this was the first time we couldn't go ashore. The seas were too rough and the Captain would not take the chance on tendering in. I heard that the Monarch missed it the day before us. This put us into Key West a little earlier than originally scheduled which was nice. Of course with an unplanned sea day there were no loungers to be had anywhere on the pool or sun deck. We finally found two chairs on the promenade deck in a little bit of sun. It was a nice spot for reading and dozing. At Key West we docked at the Westin Resort next to Mallory Square. It was great to get off the ship and be in the thick of things. No tram to take into town. We strolled Duval St for awhile and stopped for a Bloody Mary at the Mad Rooster. My advice is don't order one of these. It was absolutely vile tasting. And at $7.50 a pop. Not one of the 4 of us could stomach the drink. So back on board to the Schooner and Chris from Trinidad made us some great Pina Colodas to take the bad taste away. The Schooner is one of our favorite places on all the RCI ships and this one did not disappoint. One caveat for mobility impaired cruisers who use a scooter, walker or wheel chair. This ship has a real problem with the forward elevators getting to the Schooner, Casino and shops. Because of the 'tween' deck when you get off at five you must then go up about 4 stairs. The alternative was to get off at either deck 4 or 7 and go around to the glass Atrium elevator and go down or up one deck. Or we could walk all the aft and use those elevators. Since our room was just two away for the fwd elevatore this was a problem. Not insurmmountable just a pain in the neck. I would recommend this for a first time cruiser. There were a lot on our cruise. I was also surprised to see so many International cruisers. I wouldn't have expected that on a short cruise like this. The children on board, about 230, were extremely well behaved. More so than any of my other cruises. Kudos to those parents. Of course we were 'raided by Pirates' one night in the dining room. I remember when my own grandaughter was one of them years ago. I enjoy seeing the kids have so much fun. This was a Diamond in December cruise which gave us double credits!! We also received a gift of cookies and dried fruit and 2 bottles of water in the room. Also got a plate of chocolate covered strawberries, yummy and two very nice luggage straps, magnate pins and diamond shaped fridge magnets. Not a bad haul. All in all we had a very nice time on Majesty and would cruise her again. We especially like cruising out of Miami. Read Less
