Not for couples in their 20-30s

Just to forewarn this is mainly all a negative comment Lol. This ship is the 3rd smallest in the fleet, and built in the 90s. Boarding was not very smooth for us. Royal Caribbean never sent me any emails or a ...

No Diamond Club happy hour on this Bahamas Cruise!

The Majesty is the second oldest ship in the line, but contrary to some opinions it is an attractive ship in very good condition. This ship just began homeporting out of New Orleans a few weeks prior to this cruise ...

No food selection

We chose this cruise for the port of departure, New Orleans, and ports of call. New Orleans is always a great city to enjoy and explore before or after a cruise. We had sailed on her four years before and were ...

Great 7 nights out of NOLA

This was a small ship with great staff and activities. Steve, the cruise director, was easy to understand and added energy to the events. There were two comedians and a juggler in addition to the singers and ...

Perfect Retirement Group Cruise

We went on this cruise with a group 10 (9 of us are retired) including 4 brand new retirees. Since we are a group ranging in age from 55 to 80 (most in the 55-65 range) we were looking for an active cruise agenda ...

Really Enjoyed This Cruise

We wanted to leave out of New Orleans since we had never done that before. Also, since we live in East Texas, we wanted to drive. I thought it would be a nice trip to drive to the port and take our time getting ...

Low crowds, but...

We chose this ship to sample the smaller ship. We also have never been to New Orleans, so we spent a few pre-cruise days exploring NOLA. We got a pretty good deal and was happy to sacrifice lack of “active” ...

Barely worth it for a cheap cruise

Overall, this ship was flat out boring. There is no entertainment besides trivia, lame shows, and seminars for the purpose of selling something. The ride through the Mississippi and gulf was extremely bumpy a couple ...

Enjoyable cruise

We took a 7 day cruise out of New Orleans. We took this cruise for several reasons. The first reason is because it left from New Orleans. Since we live just outside of New Orleans, it is very convenient to just ...

A fun, relaxing and inexpensive week at sea

I’m a price/deal buyer for cruising. The stars aligned the first week of January – a low season cruise week. There were good choices- HAL out of Tampa had great window cabin pricing and air fares were good. ...

The good and disappointing...

We (a mid 30's and early 40's married couple) chose this cruise originally for the ports (Coco Cay, Nassau, Key West) and because it was a good deal. Then the Coco Cay port was changed to Miami so that was the first ...

Great staff, mediocre everything else

This cruise was a severe disappointment. The ship itself is ill designed, with no place that is peaceful or quiet. The food in Aquarius ran from mediocre most of the time to a few nearly inedible desserts. Trying ...
