This was our second time on the Majesty of the Seas , so we knew what to expect. What we did not expect was 2 FREE days added to the back end of our cruise, Because of hurricane Dorian 2 extra days were added to the back end of our five day cruise, I have to say the the captain was on the P A system sometimes twice a day letting us know that because of the hurricane RCCL would stay out 2 days longer than planned and there would be NO added cost to passengers and Drink packages and internet packages would also be extended at NO extra charge. The only thing I wondered was the room attendants and waitstaff would be shafted on 2 days of gratuities because of our FREE days?? The ship is small and compact with easy access to everything, There are literally No steps so mobility issues are no problem, Food was good and drinks were a bit expensive if you don't have the drink package ($17 for a Mojito at the pool bar) Shows and entertainment were typical for a cruise ship and even the extra days there were production shows and performers. Overall Nice cruise , the only downside was downtime in the cabin the TV was TERRIBLE There were almost NO movies or TV shows , Everything was taped loops and cartoons or sports that most people don't follow. Royal you really need to improve your stateroom entertainment.. Read Less

We live in Florida so we didnt explore the port town. The process getting on board was normal and smooth. The staff on board were pleasant but it wasn't as lively as other Royal cruises I've been on. The hallways to room had a mildew smell that seem to come and go through out the cruise. We were on level 5 which seemed to be perfect location to everything and not too bad to take stairs if elevators were busy. There were few options for food outside of dining times. The windjammer had very little hot food and seemed to always have leftovers from main dining the night before ( cold squid, shirmp, scallops and whole fish eyes and all!) YUCK!!! Also the variety was terrible. With the exception of the pizza place the other places had the same exact food. The water was pretty good but the tea had a funky taste and the coffee was like drinking oil. I love strong coffee but you could add enough creamer or sweetener! Absolutely the worst food! The last shows were ok but the last one was the only one we thought was a good job. Maybe they were new together but there was a ton of technical difficulties. The band was impressive but the shows were just not that good compared to other cruises. Also I would have bought more photos if the photographers would have taken time to say hey your bra strap is hanging out or your necklace was sideways. I was really looking forward to a good photo of our family. :-( Also the drinks were so stinking weak!!! 2 drinks was 25.00. It just blows me away I could spend 75.00 and not even get tipsy and I'm an occational drinker! The rest of the cruise was typical with funny game shows, and contest. I liked that smoking wasn't allowed everywhere. I only smelled it when I went to the bar by the casino. The kids club was my favorite part. My Daughter loved the teacher Ms Salsa! My daughter has TYPE 1 diabetes and I was concerned it would be a problem but they didn't seemed phased by it. They took instruction called us with any questions, gave us a beeper and only charged 7.00 per hour if she stayed later. She had so much fun she begged us to go! We could pick up any phone around the ship and check on her. Absolutely our favorite part. I will probably never go on this ship again. It just wasn't that good. Read Less

We choose this cruise because friends were taking a trip. The room was spectacular with a balcony water view. It came with fresh fruit, champagne and snacks. That is exactly what we needed after traveling to port. The child care was amazing and our boys always came out of the care with something they made. This ship will always hold a special place in my heart. The staff and crew were so compassionate and understanding. My mother was ill and ended up passing away on the cruise and the support team was more than I could ever imagine. The have trained staff that are extremely supportive and I was overwhelmed by the true compassion for myself and my whole family. I am forever great full for the Majesty of the Seas team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will cruise again for sure. Thank you so much, Sheri Read Less

+I had never been on a cruise before let alone out of the United States of America. I chose this exciting cruise because of a combined decision among family members. The ship is not even the biggest ship offered, yet is still really large! The state rooms were very clean and the staff members were lovely. Most of my meals were held at the Marketplace. The food had many options- some the same every day but definitely enough variety for me to enjoy the experience and not feel like I am eating the same thing every day. -There were two fires while I was on this ship. One was at 3am. This consisted of staff members and the captain over the loud speaker at 3 o clock in the morning. The way the staff handled the situation was great, however a fire in the incinerator at 3am is not always the best wake up call. The second fire had to do with the A/C units. I don't know how far the A/C outage occurred, but me and my floor did not have air conditioning for a night & half the next day. The last negative I have is that the bathroom toilet in my state room randomly did not have water flowing in it and would refuse to flush. This is gross and not acceptable for obvious reasons.

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
