Old ship not very accessible friendly


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 ...

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 ...

Nice smaller, older ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, which was to include CocoCay, Bahamas, and Key West. We have been to the Bahamas, but were eager to see CocoCay and revisit Key West. Unfortunately, CocoCay wasn't ...

The staff were wonderful, but didn't like the ship.

We chose this ship because friends were sailing on this ship at this time. We ended up being on different floors, not what we expected. The ship only had one dining room and seemed to lack the amenities that other ...

Not like I remembered

i remembered RCL being so very nice, great food, great service, just great in everything they did. I had pumped up RCL to my wife and family, that they would never again want to step on another Carnival cruise after ...

Not as family friendly as expected

We chose this cruise line because we had heard that Royal Caribbean is one of the most family-friendly cruise lines. And looking at the ship's offerings, there certainly seemed to be a lot for kids to do. Our ...

Relaxing transatlantic

So all in all a good cruise with all the typical good service from RCCL. Quick notes are that they really have very limited support for kids under 3 on most of the boats below the Oasis class. We were limited to ...

Quality Less Than What We Have Come to Expect From RCL

My wife and I have been on six cruises on four cruise lines. RCL; Holland America; Carnival and Celebrity. On this cruise we left from New Orleans. We had not cruised from there since before Katrina and were ...

Snoozer of the Seas

I want to preface this review by letting readers know that I typically avoid older ships so I'm probably a little biased. We took this cruise due to the location of the port as we were traveling with my grandmother ...

Are you kidding me?

Having heard nothing but raves about RCL and their larger ships, we were thrilled to be going on the Voyager out of New Orleans! Unfortunately, we started out poorly enduring several hours standing in the terminal ...
