our group of six cousins does a weekend cruise every winter. this time, we wanted to stop in havana and chose the majesty and it was fantastic! i found the ship to be in fine condition and the crew was very friendly and accommodating. this is my 16th or 17th short cruise and i've been on royal, carnival, celebrity and princess. in other words, this ain't my first time at the rodeo. we had a delay embarking due to the tragic death of a crew member on the way into port. i can't imagine how the crew members who knew this person managed to put on a happy face after such a sudden shock. the muster was mercifully short and well-organized. we had the moonlight dining room and i can't recall the names of the waiter and assistant but they were both right on the ball and very sweet. my sister has celiac disease (gluten allergy) and the staff was very solicitous of her the whole trip. they were very kind to me the time i was too hungover to eat anything but mashed potates :-) the dining room meals were very good and the buffet was good too. i didn't realize the pizza place (sorrento's?) was free until the last night. oh well. the cruise director whose name i've also forgotten was one of the best i've experienced. his second in command was also really fun and charming. kareoke was hilarious. the comedian was surprisingly good too. i usually find them cringeworthy but this guy was actually funny. we listened to a guitar player and a piano player - both excellent. and the band in the show was very good as well. our cabin steward was eugene and he was both adorable and very sympathetic on my hangover day. we re-arranged the cabin a bit. i don't know why cruise lines insist on having extraneous furniture in cabins. we had a good size table that i shoved under the desk. i put the chair between the beds and used it as a luggage rack. we were way up the front of the boat on level 2. it was pretty noisy the first night but it settled down after that. other people from level 2 said they hadn't heard anything so it might have been the location on that floor that was the problem. we had not-so-great weather. so we didn't hang out at the pool. it's on the small side but we only had one day at sea so no big deal. we stopped in havana and nassau. don't believe the hype about going to havana - it could NOT have been easier. both the US and cuban immigration/customs folks glanced at our passports and sent us on our way. we went to junkanoo beach in nassau. not as loud as i remember and great conch fritters. would definitely recommend the ship and the itinerary.

Fantastic time on the Majesty!

our group of six cousins does a weekend cruise every winter. this time, we wanted to stop in havana and chose the majesty and it was fantastic!

i found the ship to be in fine condition and the crew was very friendly and accommodating. this is my 16th or 17th short cruise and i've been on royal, carnival, celebrity and princess. in other words, this ain't my first time at the rodeo.

we had a delay embarking due to the tragic death of a crew member on the way into port. i can't imagine how the crew members who knew this person managed to put on a happy face after such a sudden shock. the muster was mercifully short and well-organized.

we had the moonlight dining room and i can't recall the names of the waiter and assistant but they were both right on the ball and very sweet. my sister has celiac disease (gluten allergy) and the staff was very solicitous of her the whole trip. they were very kind to me the time i was too hungover to eat anything but mashed potates :-)

the dining room meals were very good and the buffet was good too. i didn't realize the pizza place (sorrento's?) was free until the last night. oh well.

the cruise director whose name i've also forgotten was one of the best i've experienced. his second in command was also really fun and charming. kareoke was hilarious. the comedian was surprisingly good too. i usually find them cringeworthy but this guy was actually funny.

we listened to a guitar player and a piano player - both excellent. and the band in the show was very good as well.

our cabin steward was eugene and he was both adorable and very sympathetic on my hangover day.

we re-arranged the cabin a bit. i don't know why cruise lines insist on having extraneous furniture in cabins. we had a good size table that i shoved under the desk. i put the chair between the beds and used it as a luggage rack. we were way up the front of the boat on level 2. it was pretty noisy the first night but it settled down after that. other people from level 2 said they hadn't heard anything so it might have been the location on that floor that was the problem.

we had not-so-great weather. so we didn't hang out at the pool. it's on the small side but we only had one day at sea so no big deal.

we stopped in havana and nassau. don't believe the hype about going to havana - it could NOT have been easier. both the US and cuban immigration/customs folks glanced at our passports and sent us on our way. we went to junkanoo beach in nassau. not as loud as i remember and great conch fritters.

would definitely recommend the ship and the itinerary.

Cabin Review

Cabin 2020
as i mentioned it was loud the first night, like being upstairs from a dryer full of sneakers. and too much furniture. first time with a porthole and it was pretty small. nice feature but an interior or a balcony would be better for next time.
