This was a first-time cruise, and we chose Royal Caribbean for the destinations of Coco Cay and Nassau. We had two special occasions that we received little to no accommodation with: a wedding proposal and a birthday. Despite our requests, we did not gain any significant help from Guest Services and Photography to make these moments extra special. Also, on the evening of May 1st, $20 was stolen out of our wallet in the cabin. Additionally, our van broke down during the Charm & Beauty of Nassau excursion.The tour started late, and was to run from 10:45 to 1:45 pm. Instead, it went on to take up a great part of our day, and ended at 3 p.m. Nassau shops closed at 6 p.m, and the weather was too rainy for the beach. This largely forced us to go back on the ship. We did not know that Coco Cay was to be cancelled. One of two of the ports (Coco Cay) was entirely cancelled due to inclement weather. In sum, we were only able to enjoy any port of call for a total of about 5 hours. (On a four day trip!) We look forward to someday snorkeling the beautiful waters of the Bahamas, but will consider another cruise line altogether. Read Less

This was my very first cruise. I cruised with a couple of friends and my sister and brother in law. Port Canavral was great. We stayed at the Raddison at the Port and that was a great hotel with wonderful dining. I have celiac disease and require a gluten free diet and this hotel did a great job accommodating my restrictions. We took an Uber ride to the port and check in process was quick and painless. We were on the ship by 11:20am and had a drink in our hand by 11:30am!! While on the ship the main dining room really took care of me and my special diet restrictions. Windjammers was good too but not the same quality of food nor did they have the variety. Nassau was nice. Lots of great shops. I realized I am too old for Senior Frogs!! HA HA HA!!! Coco Cay was beautiful. It was my favorite day by far. The only negative for this was the fact that while on the island they served lunch but the staff was not very concerned or educated on a gluten free diet. Our rooms were nice and comfortable. We had a room with a window but not a balcony. Small yes, but you don't really spend much time in them especially on a three day cruise. The shows were mediocre. All in all I will for sure be taking another cruise probably next year for vacation. Read Less

The food was not good and was very limited. It was the same thing every day for breakfast and lunch. There was barely any food to eat after dinner and it typically tasted bad. And was exactly the same thing every night. At coco cat they only served food for 2 hours and they did not even have cold water. One member of the service staff refused to provide water to my pregnant wife because it was 1 minute after they had to close and told her she could buy a drink if she wanted to. Not to mention, it took over 2 hours to get off the ship in the morning to get to the island. There were no waiters to get drinks from at the island and there was music for less than 1 hour. All the activities in the island were very expensive and nothing was included with the cruise. The overall night entertainment was really only good one night. Read Less

This was a girls trip for a group of moms who all have their kids in the same sport. AWESOME time had on a short weekend cruise. Getting on the boat first thing Friday morning of the day we were leaving was a good idea. It felt like we had three full days on the ship, not just two and a half. RC's private island CoCo Cay was by far the best part. Myself and 3 friends bought the bed excursion which was on the quieter side of the island. It was so relaxing. Only complaint about that was our cabana attendant got one drink order from us and disappeared. Thank goodness we were right by a bar and it wasn't a long walk to get another drink. I opted not to get the internet package because I had no problem being unplugged for a 3 night cruise, however I didn't realize that would also be the way my 28 person group communicated. Part of my group had the internet package and the other half just paid the international package offered by their cell phone carrier. When my friend and I called the group reservation line to pay the deposit and get our room, we told the agent on the phone that one of us had never cruised before and were scared of getting sea sick so please give us the best room he could. He gave us the very center room at the very front of the ship. Pretty much complete opposite of what we had asked. We heard each and every noise the boat made when docking or anchoring. We could also feel every movement the ship made. The room was yes small, but I wasn't really expecting a huge one being on a ship. The bathroom was also small. When I shaved my legs I had to wait until I was out the shower and then turn the water towards the wall and stick my leg in so I wouldn't get water all on the floor. The drain in the room could have used a good dose of bleach. It wasn't an unbearable smell, but every time you opened the door to go in there, that was all you smelled. The air conditioning on the ship was hit or miss all over the place. You had some places where you could feel it blowing and it felt comfortable, and some places there was no air flow at all. One other small complaint I have was the last night when you could pay cash for the sea card purchases you made during the cruise. They had 5 computers at Guest Relations and only 4 people working them. There was one man who would walk the long line of people waiting asking if there were any questions, but everyone was there for the same reason, to review and pay for their sea pass card. He could have helped on the empty computer to help move the line along. They also could have opened up the Excursion counter to help keep the line moving. Again, overall great trip! The cruise director and his staff were great! Our room attendant and dining room waiter and assistant were great!! Read Less

This was our first cruise, chosen because it was convenient to home and over a long weekend. We weren't certain we would enjoy cruising, so we chose a shorter cruise. While we didn't partake of the add on excursions, we thoroughly enjoyed exploring on our own. Our favorite experience was exploring the beautiful beach at CocoCay. What made this birthday cruise special was the exceptional staff. From the first person who greeted us through the wait staff and stateroom attendant, it is clear that this staff is concerned with making certain each passenger feels welcomed. Each crew member we met was engaging and attentive to our every need (including anticipating some we had not considered), and professional - even when faced with some cruisers who were clearly out of line. We found the dining choices to be excellent in both Starlight main dining and Windjammer buffets. The shows in the Chorus Line theater was both varied and surprisingly professional. Read Less

We are teachers who celebrated our 25th Anniversary on the second night of our 4 day/4 night cruise to the Bahamas and CoCo Cay. We picked this cruise with Royal Caribbean as it fell perfectly during our Spring Break and over one of their competitors with almost the same dates. The entire experience was very well organized with everything laid out for us to pick and choose what we wanted to do. We loved all the restaurants especially the fine dining Starlight Room and looked forward to our meal there each evening! The quality was excellent along with the service. Our server and his assistant took care of us beyond my expectations. The other restaurants were all clean, well maintained and stocked, and had what appeared to to an army to take care for each food, drink, and dining station. We never had to wait on anything food related. We picked Royal Caribbean based on their reputation and recommendations from friends as well as the value of what we got for our price. Read Less

This is my first cruise and i had such a great time with my wife!! Our favorite was going to the private island of CocoCay. We enjoyed relaxing by the beautiful turquoise beach, and seeing some colorful fishes. We went on a bottom glass boat tour and that was really fun. Our tour guide was very informative about different kinds of sea creatures around the island and they even picked up some starfish, sea cucumber, conch and urchins for us to see and touch. Nassau was a nice city to explore and the beach was gorgeus! Our favorite meal was dinner because not only the food was delicious, our waiters were very accomodating and fun! One of the shows we enjoyed watching was Almost Elton John. He was almost like him amd he was funny. Love all his songs and his outfit. The only 2 things we didn't like was the access to the internet, it's overpriced just to be connected to it and the stateroom. I feel like the room could use some renovations. Overall, we truly had a wonderful time and would defintely choose Royal Carribean again for our next cruise. Read Less

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

While Majesty is an older ship, the crew surpasses any ship we’ve been on. Sometimes it’s nice to get away and not feel like you’re missing something because of your jam packed agenda! We were on the week of March 26th with some spring breakers but never had an issue with sloppy drunk people. We were in cabin 9502 and had plenty of space. Our view out the window was fantastic! No obstruction what so ever! It was a perfect location to use the stairs instead of the elevator. We ate in the MDR and the food was typical. Not amazing, but not bad. We did eat at Johnny Rockets when we got on the ship. Food was great but not sure it was worth the $9.95 upcharge. My favorite place was the Compass Deli! Loved having the late night nachos and tacos! Only bad thing was it was only 4 nights! Overall, it was a great cruise! 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

Choice of cruise was availability on spring break, personal past experiences, affordability, etc. Unfortunately we did not realize that so many colleges were also on break. Very loud, sometimes rude young people which Royal Caribbean could not control. Staff were always very attentive to our family, but it made getting to events difficult because of too many people on elevators. This cruise was our second on Royal Caribbean. First time was about 20 years ago, and much has changed. Most changes were for the better, but I did remember the elaborate chocolate midnight buffet that was offered back then. Couldn’t eat it, but loved looking at the visions of art. Entertainment by staff was elaborate this time. When at Johnny Rockets, we were entertained by our waitress and by the chef and other staff. Not many in restaurant, but we enjoyed card tricks, puzzles, and dancing! We definitely will be booking another cruise with you in few months. In our senior years it is nice to have comfortable lodging and staff to treat you like royalty! Read Less

We had a credit from RCL from a cruise on the Oasis this past June; and it expires in June 2018. We decided to use it on the Majesty of the Seas, and for the first time see what it is like to sail in a Junior Suite. The suite was fabulous, and on future cruises we will definitely go this route. Our cruise had an enormous number of spring breakers on it, and it was fun to see all the young people having such a good time. The amount of alcohol consumed was considerable though; and according to some of the passengers that we spoke with, many of them overindulged to such an excess that they became sick in the hallways on the lower decks. We did not see any of this ourselves though. Our 4 day itinerary included a trip to CocoCay arriving Tuesday morning and staying all day, and then departing for Nassau in the evening. The pool was open all day Tuesday and then closed for the rest of the cruise. The closing and draining, according to the Captain of the ship, was the result of unspecified mechanical problems. After spending the entire day in Nassau with no pool, the Captain announced at dinner that due to the pool closure we were going to Freeport (instead of 'At Sea'). This change to an all day stop in Freeport was a disappointment to us as we had not scheduled any shore excursions in favor of relaxing at the pool. I have no way of knowing whether mechanical reasons were the result of the pool closure, but other passengers that we spoke with claimed that some of the guests had vomited in the pool. It was an unfortunate result if true because there's really not much to do on this ship. Now on to the reason that I decided to write this review in the first place, which is the quality of the food. We ate in the dining room each of the 4 nights at the 6:00 PM seating. The decor and the service were excellent - no complaints whatsoever. The quality of the food, however, was awful. Each successive meal starting Monday evening and ending Thursday night was a disappointment from the night before. On Monday night I ordered the NY strip medium rare. It was cooked ok, but it was thin (3/8" or less), course, and chewy. Clearly, it was not a 'choice' cut, and it was probably the worst steak that I ever tried to eat - definitely a 'select' grade (or worse). The Tuesday evening meal was no better. What was described on the menu as 'Snapper' and elaborated on by our waiter as a 'Red Snapper' was definitely not red snapper, as I have eaten red snapper many times. Furthermore, it was overcooked to an extreme, resulting in a dry, chewy piece of hard to even cut mass. Meal three was a pasta with scallops so small that it is hard to imagine how they were even harvested. Since the Thursday night meal did not have a shrimp appetizer, I instead ordered the garlic shrimp entree, which was described on the menu as 'Tiger Shrimp'. They were so small (not bigger than my pinky) that they were not worth the effort. There it is: four uninspiring meals, which were of decidedly low quality and all poorly prepared, which in my view, should be an embarrassment to Royal Caribbean. Read Less

So many things to do on ship, excellent food and service by staff. Lots of options both on board and off the ship. Great entertainment. Enjoyed choice of movies by the pool. Definitely want to go again and bring my young adult kids with us this time. Loved how Oswin, our cabin attendant decorated the room nicely for our anniversary with a beautiful heat on the door saying Happy Anniversary magnet that we can keep. Inside were beautiful heart decorations on the mirror and hanging from the ceiling. The dining room staff brought us a slice of cake with a candle and sang Happy Anniversary to us. Really loved how they gave us an extra, unexpected shore exertion due to rough seas and pool being taken out of commission due to problems outside of their control. Would have enjoyed a few more extra days to be able to do more activities as there were so many to choose from. Read Less

There was a work convention that myself and my coworkers were going to that was being held on this ship. The food was never hot. The bathrooms never flushed. The hallways had an odor of feces. Two of my coworkers had a room each that was flooded when they woke up the first morning on the cruise. This issue was never truly fixed. The water that set on the carpets smelled the room up and drenched the clothes hanging in the closet as well as their suitcases on the floor. The bar service took 40 minutes or more to get a drink at the pool, not enough bartenders. My room toilet was clogged and was that way 12hours until I had to be nasty to have the plumber come and fix it. Guest Services was a joke. They moved my coworkers room 2 times and continued to have the keys not working- and with a language barrier and lack of empathy or compassion this would probably be my top reason I would not crusie on this ship again.. and likely not on Royal Caribbean Cruise line for that matter.

This was my 4th cruise (3rd with Royal Caribbean). I sailed Majesty of the Seas about 5 years ago and had a fantastic time. This time was much different. It didn't have that same upbeat energy from the staff. They seemed stressed and worn out. We were ignored multiple times by various bar staff. Skipped over by bar service giving attention to people that came after us many times. We had multiple charges on our bill that we had to dispute because we had an all inclusive drink package the the bar staff charged us full price. On disembarkation day, the guest relations line took more than an HOUR to get through. We almost missed our transport back to the airport because of this. It was by far the worst I've ever experienced. Many, many people had issues on this cruise. I was listening to one complaint after another while in the guest services line. The best part of the cruise was one of the entertainment staff, Isaac. He was really funny and made up for the fact that we missed one of our ports because of high winds. Others were okay but Isaac's personality stood out the most. The cruise director, Susan, was pretty good, too. Our waiter in the main dining room was great, but I overheard MANY senior staff talking down to lower ranking wait staff and training/disciplining them in horrible tones within ear shot of guests. I was very disappointed in how they were treating their own staff. I observed this in the Windjammer, too. I feel like that should have been taken behind the scenes. You could tell it affected the staff's attitude, too. Only the people greeting at the doors to the Windjammer really smiled and greeted us. Everyone else just seemed surly. The new renovations to the pool area were nice, but they were having major problems with their video/audio systems. Movies would start and suddenly stop. A couple of speakers were crackling making it hard to hear. A couple of times a movie was playing along with music. I'm a fan of Royal Caribbean, but won't be back on the Majesty of the Seas anytime soon. Read Less

We had cruised with Royal Caribbean 15+ years ago to Alaska and the Western Caribbean (Cozumel, Caymens, Jamaica & Haiti). Both experiences were great and we really felt catered to. This cruise just didn't match that experience. Majesty of the Seas is a very old ship and it showed it in much of the decor, ship conditions and appearance. While the food was good, it did not wow us and seemed somewhat repetitive (especially in Windjammer). Our dining room staff, while friendly, did not go out of their way to remember our names (even after 5 days). But the thing that frustrated me the most was the wifi. I needed reliable and somewhat speedy wifi so I could keep up with things while gone. For $18/day, I expected the VOOM service to work well. Let's just say that it hardly worked in our stateroom (staff told me to leave the door open to get better reception - really?!), I tried several of the lounges/bars, up by the pool (staff told me it worked better the higher you went) and even in the VOOM sales area. Best download speed I could ever get was 4 Mbps. I tried downloading an app on my tablet every day for the entire trip but could never get the download to complete, but when I got to the hotel the night after we left the ship, the app loaded in under 1 minutes. The trip was not all bad. The shows (comedians, singer/dancers) were good, the client interfacing events were fun (Newlywed game, belly flop competition) and they did show the NFL playoff football games on the big screen by the pool. Just not enough to make we want to do it again any time soon. Read Less

My party occupied 4 cabins. 3/4 cabins had bathrooms overflowing and showers over flowing into our stateroom. The hallways smelled. We had to wait 45 minutes to have our water line fixed and this was right before formal dinner. The water was completely shut off in our room while we were stuck on board because we missed Cococay due to weather. There was a HUGE lack of communication (no one reported our water line breaking to the Superiors) and there was no flexibility in trying to "right" this problem. They offered me $60 towards my next cruise. Worst time I've ever had with RC. Stateroom attendant was AMAZING. Dining service was GREAT. activities were okay. Thankful i had a party of 8 to hang with and enjoy company... If our friends werent there it would have been a very boring and rocky cruise.

This was the first cruise for myself, fiance, and our two newlywed friends. All of us had mild expectations of how the experience would be. We expected mediocre dining options, bottom shelf liquor for our drink package, and a cabin that was passable at best. We basically expected the ports to be the highlights and the ship to just pass the time. Well let me tell you that we could not have been further from the truth! The food was superb, the drinks were top shelf, and the cabin felt like home! We were drinking Bombay Gin, Johnny Walker Black, and Grey Goose without any extra charge. The food consisted of melt in your mouth steaks and 4 course meals every night for dinner. The cabin was prepared for us multiple times per day and we had a cute little towel animal waiting for us every night. The ports themselves were a great time as you can expect. We had white sand beaches and delicious local cuisine. We felt safe and that we could explore without hesitation. All in all it was a wonderful experience and the ship may have been even more fun then the ports! Read Less

We chose to take a New Years cruise and it was great. The weather was tough going out and then coming back in but we have been told the bigger ships you do not feel it. I loved the ship and what there was to do. I do have a suggestion. They do need more than one barista in the coffee shop, they lines were far too long with only one person getting orders and making the drinks. Also a second hair dresser. She was the only one on board so she was way booked up and if you got on the ship and went right to the spa to book a hair appointment for the formal night you would had had to get your hair done at noon when dinner was at 8:30, so you do need more help with you have a to capacity ship. We did enjoy the food however having hot coffee with room service instead of lukewarm. For photos there needs to be a better way to find your photos, I know we had more taken but it was over and hour looking for them, so we gave up and just went those we could find, it would be nice if they were all in one place maybe by room number or something else to make the process easier and help us to see all that were taken. Over all we did have a wonderful time. Read Less

Excursions cheaper PURCHASED on shore. The best thing was crushed baggage with wife makeup all over everything. ...they showed old crappy movies everyone on the big outdoor screen by the pool with 30 kids playing in it couldn't hear the movies. And speaking of pool..theres 1 the parents dump their kids there all day so you can't get in it.

We have sailed on the Majesty before, the ship is old but well kept. Way back in 1993, my wife for some reason saved a copy of the Ships Compass and we brought it along. During the meet and greet with the crew we showed them and they loved it. One of the crew members took photos. We are Diamond RCCL members and this is the only line we have sailed on. Always a good time and not sure what type of training they put the crew through but they are always helpful and friendly. We were on the four day out of Canaveral, on the three day cruise mostly young types. That is the reason we always do the four day. Spotless and the crew was A+. We received a good price from Casino so we couldn't pass it up. This would be a good ship for first time cruisers. Our favorite ship is the Oasis, but one will receive a lot of value sailing on this ship. Read Less

We chose to stay onboard after arriving at Port Canaveral to explore the ship. Embarkation was surprisingly quick and easy. The ship did have a bit of a vintage feel, but I didn't think that retracted at all from the vacation experience. Our cabins were clean and orderly. We had an interior stateroom, which are small but we barely spent any time in our rooms during the cruise so it didn't bother us. I absolutely LOVED the food on the ship! The entertainment on board was excellent, as there was always some activity you could find to do. The ship went to Cococay and Nassau in the Bahamas. We chose to do Rainbow Reef Snorkeling in Nassau, and I have to say that was the highlight of my vacation! There were a variety of fish and the reef was beautiful! I only wish we had brought a waterproof camera with us. Above all, the service by Royal Caribbean was the most impressive and would lead me to choose this cruise line again. All of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and so helpful. I would definitely cruise again and recommend Majesty of the Seas, especially for a first-time cruiser. The ship may not be huge, but that also makes everything easy to find aboard so it's not too overwhelming. Read Less

Crew not polite, entertainment on board very poor. Cinema is in pool area at 11:45 PM with a temperature at 61o.F Main restaurant with ugly aspect and odors. Food and service with nothing special even during gala night. Shows very poor and many of them are made by the guests. The disembarkation process was not well explained: stay with luggage ou send them. If you not stay with your luggage you will need to remain on board 2 h more. Cause this I miss an meeting. Every information required was answer with a ugly face. At the cassino, restaurant, etc. The main restaurant require a specific table during dinner. Although I make a reservation for table for 2, that was not available. During breakfast and lunch the guests were told by crew to seat in a very small area, one over another. I don't know why!. Food with no flavor and menu very simple. Read Less

We chose this cruise as a (hopefully) fun way to end a trip to Orlando. I wish we had chosen another ship. The Majesty of the Seas needs some work. A lot of work. A good cleaning. A more organized staff. First, upon boarding the ship it smelled like a dirty locker room in the hallways and the lower you went, the worse the smell...the last few days of the cruise funk that seeps from the bathrooms. Our room was positively frigid. It had to be 60 in there. No matter how hard we tried, the temperature would not change. We called twice maintenance to adjust. Problem was supposedly resolved, but what was done was our air was turned off completely. An interior cabin on a not so fresh ship...not pleasant at all. A third call to maintenance finally resolved the problem and a part was replaced, but springs, wire bits and vent crud were left all over the floor. Not a single power outlet in the room functioned properly. All of our plugs fell out of the sockets. And the muster...what chaos. It took over 30 minutes to get muster completed and not a single staff member seemed to understand how to complete the process. One and a half hours after departure, the ship had to turn around and head back to port due to a medical emergency. The return delayed our docking in Nassau the next day. No one announced the disembark at the port. We waited for an announcement...none. People just got tired of waiting and started lining up. The port delay threw off many excursions and the staff had no idea how to handle the situation. At the port, the excursion staff sent us three different places. No one seemed in charge, it was like the chaos of muster all over again. We were scheduled to be in Nassau until 11:30 pm. 95% of the featured specialty shop were closed by 6 pm. The streets were empty. Only two dive bars and a Senor Frogs open and taxi drivers and T-shirt vendors at the port remained open. Oh, and Nassau was filthy. Windjammer cafe...half of the ice machines and ice cream machines were not functioning. Drink machines often empty. Dirty coffee cups mixed with clean ones. The dining staff in the Windjammer seemed to hate their jobs, never smiling or saying hello. The cabin attendants were simply okay. They were not exceptional in any way. One towel animal was actually made from dirty, damp towels off our (we hope) bathroom floor. The good points...Coco Cay. The island was awesome. No excursions necessary. Snorkeling the reef from the beach was outstanding. The area was clean and well managed. The main dining room...the food was very good the two nights we went. The main dining room staff seemed to be the only capable staff on the boat. I am pretty certain I will choose another line for my next cruise. RC really needs to retire this ship or do a full refurb. They also need to be more selective with staff. This crew was well below par. Read Less
