Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Interior Accessible

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
