We have previously been on a wonderful Mediterranean cruise with Royal Caribean November 2016. As a final part of our Florida holiday, we decided as a treat to do the 3 day cruise around the Bahamas. I can safely say that this cruise was not at all relaxing or enjoyable due to the following reasons: 1. When we boarded the boat the majority of the occupants were very drunk/ the language was disgusting and vulgar. We did our safety procedures, which involves meeting by your life boat to insure that in case of an emergency you know where to go. As you can imagine this was a joke due to the high amounts of alcohol that most guests had already consumed. How a company can do a mandatory safety procedure after large amounts of alcohol has been served is beyond me. 2. Boat clenleness: The boat seemed to need little bits of repair work done in our state room. Not only was the floor cracked, our toilet seat was broken (in fact the majority of the female toilets on the boat had broken seats) and our towels were dirty. Sewage smell: Our cabin was on level 2 and for some reason had a smell of sewage in the corridor. Cannabis smell: One evening when we were heading for our meal there was a strong smell of cannabis in the corridor on level 2. Even though this is completely unacceptable, it was a welcomed relief to the sewage smell. 3. Shore excursions: my husband booked an excursion for us one month in advance. We did not have any information left in our room the night before (which they usually do). When we inquired at guest relations they told us that we were mistaken and that we did not have a booking. This resulted in my husband having to pay to use their Wi-Fi, log in to his computer to not only show them an email from them to confirm but also the payment coming out. I should mention that at this time we had already missed the excursion departure time. Once we had proven our booking it took 3 separate employees to be able to tell us that it was not their fault but it had been a system error. I had to inquire about a refund and what they were going to do to resolve this. We were made to feel that this was our fault some how. They also informed us that we would have to contact Royal Carribean once we get back to the UK about our refund! 4. Boat employees: on the first morning of our cruise we decided to have breakfast in our room. When our breakfast was delivered the staff member was quite rude, we asked where the remaining parts of our breakfast were and she told us to call room service. We called room service to let them know that half our items were missing and that we also need cutlery. By the time this arrived my breakfast was cold. Waiting staff: during our evening meal which we pre booked in the formal dining room we were constantly asked to make sure that we left them a good review which became more and more irritating. On our last evening our waiter told us to leave him a tip in an envelope (these envelopes had been left in our room already). Our waiter told us to make sure that we put his name on it and hand it to guest relations. I should mention that our envelope already had a name written on it..and it was not our waiters name and neither did we write this! 5. Cruise Atmosphere: during each evening meal as soon as our main course arrived music started being blasted through a speaker directly above our head to encourage us to get up and dance. The staff were expected to dance and perform for diners which was incredibly uncomfortable to watch. On the eve of the formal attire all guests and staff were expected to get up and dance the Macarena! This did not seem to fit the 'formal attire' atmosphere you would expect. We have another cruise booked with Royal Carribean September 2018 which we will now be cancelling due to the experience. Read Less

This cruise was so nice and a very pleasant experience for me being this was my first time cruising Royal Caribbean! The food was delicious on the entire boat. I would most definitely choose this cruise line again! The housekeeper was the best ever! The dining staff Marlon and Clarizza was awesome! I love love love this cruise! Cococay was great they had so much food out there and good food! The beach was very very nice there was so much to do on this island and the drinks was great in the island if you love drinking then this is the island to be on! The drink package for my other half was great that is definitely the way to go if you are a drinker! You must definitely get your money worth by purchasing the drink packages I will always purchase this whenever I cruise in the future Read Less

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

My first Royal Caribbean cruise had been on the Independence of the Sea. This boat was my second. Boy, what a mistake. If I had done the reverse order, maybe there would be some Saving Grace to mention. I had a 4-night cruise, and by the third night I was ready to go home. The staff was not as friendly as I had hoped. Although I had read the reviews from other people regarding the majesty, and I did know it was a smaller ship, I was seeing reviews that the staff was a super friendly little crew. Not true! Next, I understand this is a small ship, but if your average Florida house pool is larger than one of the pools on the main pool deck, there may be something wrong. I do recommend the main dining room to have dinner. But do not, I repeat, do not order the meals on the bottom of the menu that require payment. I had the surf and turf and I believe I received a plate that had been previously made two hours prior. The lobster tail was dry beyond all recognition, but the filet was still good. The main food that is for free is very good. I would also recommend trying the breakfast in the main dining room at least once. They cram together tables which are entirely too close together, but the food was good on day one, by day 4, the English muffins for my eggs benedict were hockey pucks. Just a warning for you. Highlights of the trip were the casino, Casino staff, and pool bar staff. Read Less

We do an annual girls weekend and have always done it on the Royal Carribbean - last two years it has been Majesty of the Seas. This year the food was the worst - grey salmon, tasteless meat, under cooked french fries, The vegetables however were good and cooked well. good stuff: 1. Entertainment was good - loved the Elton John show and the comedian. 2. Activity staff - loved the people doing trivia, very friendly whenever we saw them. 3. Our cabin guy was lovely - he brought us lots of ice (we had bottles with us - they allow 2 per cabin). 4. Coco Cay - I just love Coco Cay - it is really beautiful and the buffet on the island it the best food you will get on the trip. 5. Drink prices are reasonable bad stuff 1. The food was just awful (other than coco cay) 2. We had a bad wait staff this year but in previous years they have been good. 3. The restaurant manager was very difficult - we had 10 people on the cruise, yet they only had a table for 8 for us and made a real stink about changing it so the 10 could sit together. Read Less

Went on this cruise with my husband on our honey moon! It was amazing! We didn't have to worry about anything! The staff was very attentive, every couple of steps we were asked if there was anything we could have done. All the staff was very friendly and the food was fantastic! If you are looking for a fun, family centered, but party cruise this is where you need to be! The entertainment was great! I loved how organized everything seemed to be, and if we didn't want to do one thing, there was always an alternative! I really enoyed our cabin and the the location. The only thing I wish the cruise line would consider would be the price point of the cruise package. The last day we didn't get to use it because everything was closed so we felt a little bit like we taken advantage of a little bit from there. But other than that, it was a wonderful cruise.

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

We went on our first RC cruise as an anniversary celebration. Huge disappointment. Food was terrible. Same food everyday that seemed like it was reheated from the day before. Employees seemed very unhappy. Even rude at times. Activities were disorganized. Ship had plumbing issues. Smelled like a sewer in our room even waking us up when the smell would get bad. The only positive was our room attendant and female employee in Johnny Rockets. Tried to email RC when we got home only to be told we should have spoken with guest services on the ship and that they couldn't help us. I wouldn't recommend ROYAL CARIBBEAN to anyone. Don't waste your money or your time. They only want your money. Also cruise employees don't seem to understand how to properly direct cruise passengers during disembarkation process. Rude in my opinion. I can understand now why employees may hate their jobs. This ship needs a re-do and new people that have mgmt/people experience. Great bosses = happy employees. Read Less

Hubby and I went for our 29th anniversary. The staff was phenomenal and we had a great time! Nassau was nice but I probably wouldn’t go back again. Cococay was very nice! Our toilet didn’t work for about 24 hours and the ship compensated us by refunding 30% of our total for our inconvenience. I highly recommend Majesty of the Seas. We had wonderful waiters in the Starlight Dining Room as well as the wonderful man we took care of our cabin. We had a great time in the sushi making class which I highly recommend. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful while boarding and disembarking. I can’t say enough good things about the staff, the ship and everyone that was involved in helping to give us a wonderful and memorable anniversary weekend. We also met a great couple on the ship that we had dinner with all three nights. Read Less

For royal Caribbean's oldest and smallest ship, it was still a better experience than any ship from other cruise lines! The majesty of the seas was very clean and well maintained. The crew onboard was phenomenal in every aspect! Diningroom service was great, the food was awesome. The stateroom attendant was amazing. He kept our room emaculate. We also had a towel animal EVERY night which was a big deal, the reason being on my wifes first cruise she was expecting a towel animal and never got one. All around an amazing cruise! I wouldnt consider any other cruise line. Ive been on cruises with other lines and ive never had as good of an experience as i do when i cruise with Royal Caribbean. The service, respect, friendliness, and enjoyment on a Royal Caribbean cruise are top notch! If I had a problem with even something small, ANY crew member went out of their way and will go above and beyond to fix the issue and make sure you are overly satisfied. Ill never cruise anyone but Royal Caribbean! 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

My husband and I chose this cruise over his spring break (he is a teacher) because we got a great price under the BOGO 50% off deal. We typically cruise Carnival to get the best deal, but the sale bumped RCL's prices slightly below Carnival's. Sold! Embarkation was a breeze, as it always is through Port Canaveral. We arrived around 10:30, and there was already a bit of a line, but we were still on the ship within twenty minutes of arriving. Our only complaint on the first day was the wait until our rooms were ready. We typically buy Faster to the Fun on Carnival so we can access our rooms right away, but RCL doesn't have an equivalent, so we wandered around with our carry-ons for about two hours before we could drop them off. Wasn't a huge deal, we just walked around and explored. The only problem is that I had made the mistake of wearing high heels! We noticed that a lot of people had carried on all of their luggage; I imagine they were even more ready to get to their rooms than we were! After we got to our rooms, it took another hour or so for us to get our luggage. We, like most of our neighbors, opted to search through the suitcases as they were brought up rather than wait until they were delivered around 3 or 4. It took an hour or so to get them, but we kicked back and watched a movie until they showed up. Then I got my flats on, and we went back to exploring the ship. The Majesty of the Seas looked great, especially considering her age. There were a few rust spots and some of the decor was dated, but I still thought it was a beautiful old ship. The layout worked well; there were very few dead-ends when trying to get from one end of the ship to another, or between floors. We opted to take the stairs as often as we could to reclaim a few calories here and there, so we didn't have very much trouble with the elevators. I think the biggest difference we noticed between quality on RCL and Carnival ships was the food. Everything we tried in the main dining room was AMAZING. The buffet food was a little more hit-or-miss, but generally up to par with buffet food anywhere you go. The buffet and seating areas were kept very clean, and all of the service was amazing. We've been warned before about cruising in March/April because of the Spring Break crowds, and there were definitely tons of college students, but we weren't bothered by them. They certainly kept the atmosphere lively, and we didn't see anyone overindulge too seriously, and even those who had one or two too many were polite, and their friends were there to keep them in line (shout out to the young lady who brought three or four glasses of ice water to a booth of her friends who were in various stages of falling asleep on each other at karaoke one night). The first day of our cruise was a sea day. We took part on a lot of onboard activities, and we filled the rest of our day reading and relaxing on the deck. My only complaint from the down-time onboard was that it seemed like every out door area allowed smoking. I had to hop around a bit because it seemed like every time I found a comfortable spot, someone else would walk over somewhere up-wind and start smoking. Nassau was...Nassau. It really only takes one trip to Nassau to see everything there is, unless you want to pay out the nose for excursions. Nevertheless, we thought we'd try a cheap tour through RCL. It was...okay. We went to all of the usual places; the fort, the distillery, the rum cake factors, etc. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Our biggest complaint was that it went about two hours over the advertised time! The last stop was Fish Fry, a section of beach with a few dozen restaurants. When we arrived, the guide said we could either make it a ten minute stop so we could walk around and maybe grab a quick bite, or we could stay an hour and a half for lunch. About four people out of the twenty on our bus wanted to stay for lunch, so the rest of us were effectively stranded for ninety minutes. We didn't have any other excursions planned for the day, but I imagine that some people may have missed their second excursion because the first one took so much longer than expected. Coco Cay was the typical relaxing beach day, as usual. We found out later that three other ships were also supposed to have been there, but they didn't make it due to weather conditions. I hate to say it, but I'm sort of glad they weren't there. With only the 2,800 passengers from the Majesty to fill up the beaches and bars, there was plenty of room to spread out. The lunch hour was hectic, as usual, and I can't imagine how much worse it would have been with another few thousand more people there, fighting to find the shortest lines. Overall, we had an amazing cruise. The food and service were excellent, the ship was just the right size for us, and the onboard activities were great. Read Less

I read about cruises for more than 20 years. Royal Caribbean seemed to be the cruiseline that caught my attention the most. Instinct said I should take a 3 night Caribbean cruise out of Florida. i only found one leaving late March; Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas. Royal was good about identifying required ID for my wife and I. i would need my driver's license and certified birth certificate copy. My wife would need a copy of our marriage certificate to explain why the name on her birth certificate does not match that of her license We passed through customs with ease. The schedule of activities printed in Compass was very helpful in planning. ai especially liked the live comedy and music performances that happened every night. The pool had lie music and movies. Nice touch. My favorite spot became Viking Crown Lounge at the highest point of the ship. Glass exterior with comfy furniture. Bar. Quiet. TVs showed sports but with sound off. The only other people there seemed to want peace too. Read Less

Majesty of the Seas (Majesty) was in dry dock for the month of February 2018. We enjoyed the new features that were added: our junior suite had new beds, furniture, curtains and bath enclosure. We also noticed new indoor/outdoor carpeting on Deck 12. I am sure there were many other enhancements that were not as noticeable below deck (engine room and toilet system). Majesty uses the newest cruise dock at Port Canaveral, Terminal 1. The parking garage is adjacent to the cruise terminal so there is no need to get rained-on like all the other terminals. Traffic is far less congested than those servicing Disney, Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Lines. The menu in the main dining room has changed since dry dock. It is probably more efficient for the waiter to obtain orders for the appetizer, entree and dessert all at once. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the Junior Suite. It doubles the cruise points for Crown and Anchor Society Members. There was adequate storage and drawers in the room but storage and shelves in the bathroom were sorely lacking. It is rather small compared to other junior suites in the Royal Caribbean Fleet. It has173 square feet with a 60-square-foot balcony. The balcony has a table and two chairs. Majesty is in Nassau from 08:00am until 9:00pm. Personally, I would not be in Nassau after dark for security reasons. I enjoy taking a short walk to Pirate Republic Brewing to enjoy their craft IPA (Island Pirate Ale). The beer is fresh, cold and one-half the price you would pay on the ship. Entertainment: The first night features a Welcome Abord Comedy Show and the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers. Tuesday night's production ShowTime is "Signed, Sealed, Delivered". The Headliner Show is Wednesday night while the ship is in Nassau. Thursday night highlights the singers and dancers in "Boogie Wonderland". Embarkation: There are two lines to enter security in Terminal 1: one for those passengers who have sailed on Royal Caribbean before and one line for those who have not. Priority embarkation for suite guests is a myth through the security line. Disembarkation: A buffet is served in the Windjammer and a full-service breakfast is available in the Main Dining Room. Suite guests receive priority luggage tags to be the first numbers called. Continental breakfast is also available in a reserved conference room while waiting for departure. 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

My husband and I were celebrating our 20 year "1st Date" on St. Patrick's day so we decided to take a cruise and invite friends and family. We had such an amazing time that we cannot go on more cruises! The staff made us feel like royalty! Coco Cay was so much fun. The fish are so beautiful and we were over the moon to find an Irish Pub in the Nassau. It made my day even more to find Starbucks on board the ship in addition to Nassau! We had a lovely view of the Ocean which made it so romantic. Watching the sunrise and sunset was a special treat from the deck of the ship. Everything was clean, tidy and amazing. We were lucky to check in fast because we were with a friend that was a double diamond so I did feel for those checking in slow. Now we have a goal to become a double diamond too! Her perks were amazing with free wifi and drinks! 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

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

We were visiting Florida for another vacation, so we decided to cruise out of Tampa or Orlando, and Royal Caribbean was given good reviews by friends and family. We cruised to the Bahamas on Majesty of the Seas, a smaller, but manageable size ship for my husband's first cruise. We were overwhelmed by the incredible friendliness of the staff and crew, and I was underwhelmed by the variety of food choices for vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free diets. Because it rained for most of our vacation, the majority of the shore excursions were cancelled, which saved us a lot of money! We chose to have a junior suite on the 10th floor, mid-ship, with a walk-out balcony. This provided the space I needed to not feel claustrophobic. On one previous cruise I stayed in a room with a very small window -- this was MUCH better. The entertainment and activities on board were great, but I felt they were geared to a much older audience (sorry, bingo and Lionel Richie tribute artist). While we were not traveling with kids, it was amazing to watch the crew treat the children on board like royalty! They were so sweet and helpful to all the parents and grandparents with these kids! We will undoubtedly take another cruise with Royal Caribbean, probably on a bigger ship. Too many people on board kept recommending different ships, and I think my husband is hooked. Read Less

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

The ship was wonderfully maintained and the service and food was fabulous. Everyone was genuinely friendly and helpful. It was one of our best cruises ever and that says a lot because we are almost Diamond Plus. We celebrated our 49th anniversary aboard. Dining room did not seem crowded or noisy, and the food and service were superb. We cannot believe the ship is going in to dry dock because it is so beautifully maintained and clean. We had a fifth floor cabin that was perfectly located. The ship is easy to navigate and everything is conveniently located. We look forward to sailing on her again. Ports of call were pleasant. We stayed aboard while everyone went to Coco Cay, and really enjoyed the empty ship. Nassau is always a pleasant visit even with two other ships in port. The big plus on this ship is its people. Truly the friendliest staff at sea and one that takes pride in the little details. 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

Toilets backing up everywhere. Ships old and beat up. Furniture in bar broken. Dinner Menu average unless you pay for upgraded meals. Up selling rampant. Paid for internet only good for texting only no games can be downloaded or played. Check your bill. Charged for items they could not explain. Entertainment consisted of guy with puppets lol. They charged for ferrie boat to man made island with rental beach chairs. Total joke and waist of money. Rented scooter in Nassau had great time. Get away from boat for authentic experience. 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. Our room was so small we had to climb in it from the end since the sides of the bed touched the walls..could hear the people above u clomping around all hours of the nite..do not go. Save your money for a real cruise. Read Less
