  3. Majesty of the Seas
Just returning from 7 days on the majesty of the Sea out of New Orleans. Brought my sister in law with us who had never been on a cruise. It was not the best Impression for a newbie. Beyond RCC control the ship arrived at 3:30 due to experiencing bad weather coming in. Embarkation was a crazy madhouse. Very long lines since they had us all arriving to board at 3:00pm. Embarkation took about 90 minutes. Pros Cheap price Food Average to above average Eagles Tribute band phenomenal Comedian very fun Ports were great Guitarist was great Staff courteous and helpful Dining staff excellent Cons Inside room on deck 2 very small and minimal storage. Hint. Have beds as twins rather than king. Made room more comfortable for two people Beverage prices high (1 beer and 1 Bloody Mary was $25 after tip) No seating in Centrum area where many events took place Production shows were average. Pool area overcrowded especially hot tubs, no area for adult only, kids took over the hot tubs Sewer smell on lower decks, especially today on debarkation day, enough to make you nauseous while waiting forever for elevators Buffet for breakfast usually pretty good but today coffee cold eggs cold too little seating. Waited too long before opening both buffet sections With all the news about conovirus the handrails were not wiped down enough Accessibility for many was difficult due to having to use stairs to get to several of the elevators in the main areas of the ship I’ve been on many cruises on four different cruise lines , RCC included. If this was my first cruise I would not cruise again. Very bad impression. I will cruise again but I think it is time to gut and redo this ship or retire it completely Key West and Nassau are walkable ports. We enjoyed both of these port days. Used some of the walking tour ideas from Pinterest. Coco Bay was very clean and nice. We were the only ship there that day. Complimentary food available was good ( except hamburger). There were plenty chairs around beach and pool available. You can use your beverage package on this island that is owned by RCC

Old ship not very accessible friendly
