Cuba or bust...bust....but had a great time on sea days, Key West and Nassau with changed itinerary. Full disclosure: we have been on 16 RCCL cruises including every class of ship in fleet, including Majesty years ago. We too were apprehensive going on a 22 year old ship but RCCL did not disappoint. The ship is aging well...all carpet, public rooms and our stateroom were in good shape. We are not saying the ship is of the Oasis class with all the bells and whistles but we knew that going in. We would say if someone boarded the Majesty as their very first cruise, they would be impressed. It just doesn’t feel “old”. Dining: windjammer for lunch and breakfast were what to be expected but I must add omelet station was exceptional. Omelets were not too big and way better than some past experiences. Hidden gem for lunch: Compass deli which is on 2nd floor of buffet (deck 12). Fresh made paninis and salad bar every day. Two soups and a variety of desserts and fruits. The spot was never crowded and was right next to Sorrentos so you could have a nice fresh salad with your pizza. Dining room: excellent service as we have come to expect from RCCL. Food was great but not the variety of a bigger ship. That was to be expected. Sea days: pool was very crowded. Don’t plan on swimming laps! But we could still find a spot around the pool area with patience. Schooner bar was a comfortable place to have a well made cocktail and listen to music or trivia. Boleros was a great spot too. As was Spectrum (karaoke). The service in all of these venues was excellent. Stateroom: we had an ocean view room. Yes they are smaller than newer ships but for our five night adventure, there was plenty of room. The room was clean and everything worked just fine as you would expect. Our adult daughters had a room on another floor and their room was also perfect. The cabin attendants for both rooms were attentive and did a great job. Spa: had a fifty minute Swedish massage and it was one of the best I have had and i have had numerous on RCCL. She listened to where I said the stress points were and she focused on that. Instead of an overpriced back rub, I received a very helpful massage. For early fifties with twenty-something “kids”, we found this vacation to be very fun. We were, as I am sure everyone else was, initially disappointed about the Cuba change of plans. But we sure are glad we decided to “stay the course”. We couldn’t recommend RCCL more and for this length of trip, the Majesty was perfect.

She has aged very well! A pleasant surprise.
