went with a group or friends from work. It was my first cruise and an amazing time. I was blown away with the service and all the activities that were offered. Getting on and off the ship went so smooth, there were people everywhere to point the way to assist if needed. We did do the off site cruise parking and i would highly recommend that. My cabin was way bigger than i expected. Wow and the amount of food was amazing. who knew you could ever order two entrees if thats what you wanted . There was never an hour that you could not go do something. The shows were amazing. We got off the ship in the Bahamas that was a little overwhelming, because you are inundated with the locals trying to sell you stuff or go for a taxi ride, but if you said no they did not keep on. Would defiantly go again. Great product for my money Read Less

This was my first cruise so I had nothing to compare it to except what others had told me. Communication aboard ship was lacking for a first time cruiser. If there was an orientation we didn't see it advertised. More info as to where things were and "you are here" signs would help. Explaining how the travel mugs provided with the drink package worked would also have been helpful. The ship was nice, clean and comfortable despite its age. The cabin was clean and functional. We had issues with excursions we booked being canceled and rebooked with little to no notice.The excursion guy was rude and uncaring when we tried to address the issue with him. Lots of time wasted getting off the ship in Nassau to go to Atlantis. Why should we have to wait for people that get up late or for another cruise ship's passengers. We could have taken a cab had we been told. We had the MyTime dining option and didn't know we needed to book the time before we left port or would have to wait for a table. The food was so-so; we felt rushed in the dining room two nights. The food was often cold, especially breakfast (cold eggs Benedict - yuck). Espresso was terrible - just plain coffee in a tiny cup, tepid at best. I wanted a Scotch and water but kept getting a Scotch and ginger ale, even after explaining what I wanted. The Windjammer Buffet was decent as well as the Chefs Table (at $85 a person). Staff was very nice (except the guy mentioned above) and helpful when asked. Entertainment was decent; no one major. The comedian was good but very short show, like 10 minutes. It was nice not to have people hawking you all the time to buy things, but the ship is oriented around selling things - art, watches, jewelry, etc. The casino was nice but the smoking was terrible. I would have enjoyed a day at sea at the start to get oriented with onboard stuff like the day-at-sea at the end. I'll have to look for that next time. Read Less

All the crew members did a real good job. The wait staff provided us an excellent service during dinner, they are so attentive. They refill water as soon as they can. The foods are very tasty and fabulous so thank you for the chefs on board. We even ordered more than 1 burp. The Dining hall manager made our dinning experience spectacular. My mom who missed the food from my home country made a special request for my brother's birthday and he made it possible. The ship is really good, lots of fun activities and its very clean. My overall experience is five star, very nice experience. There was an auction painting with lots of raffles drawing. There was a comedy show and dancing show. I hope they provided a real Broadway show. I'm pretty sure it will be jam packed by the cruisers. The unlimited food was good. I really Love it as my first time. Read Less

My friend and I thought this would be a good cruise to enjoy for our first time. They were rude, didn't resolve ANY issues while on board. Our plugs in did not work, we had no AC. Made arrangements before setting sail to have dinner time at the same time each night and they let someone else have our seat. They then made us wait till they sat others and finally pulled up a TWO person table for my friend and I by the dirty dishes and server station. Their staff was friendly in different areas but for the majority they were rude and we did not like them. Our room attendant didn't help us with anything but to come clean in which she walked in two different times while we were still in getting ready. The one time we finally called and asked for ice they brought it to us about a hour later. Will not be cruising Royal Caribbean again. Read Less

Could not have asked for a better vacation! Royal Carribean and The Majesty of The Seas was a perfect fit for my husband and myself. The ship was beyond our expectations. I can't remember being so pampered. The activities team truly enjoy their jobs so that helped us enjoy our trip. I especially loved all the shows. There was something for all ages. Cruise director Bobby, Activities director Moe and Brandon interacted so well with the audience. (They were a Hoot!!!) Each evening when we returned to our cabin the towel animals brought a smile to our faces. Thanks to our room attendant. The food in the Windjammer was remarkable. Great variety and beautifully presented. We were assigned table 123 in the main dining and I'm so glad we were. Efren and Octa made a lasting impression on us. Their smiling faces and attention to details just blew us away. Thanks Royal Carribean. We will see you on our next cruise!!!!! Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the timing. We needed to leave and be back In time for our first grandchild to be born. Nassau was a little disappointing. Very touristy. We loved Cococay. The beach was beautiful, the mini straw market was not near as pushy as Nassau. The service overall was excellent with the exception of most of the bartenders in the Boleros room. They would ignore you for 30 minutes easily. We would choose a larger ship next time. Majesty had only one pool that was too crowded to get in most of the time. The food in the dining room was excellent and Galen was an outstanding waiter. The windjammer was ok, Sorrentos pizza was barely average. The activities director is pretty funny and the activities were very entertaining. They could really scale back on the pushy sales once you're on board, that got pretty annoying and you need to learn to dodge them. Read Less

This was my husband and I first time cruising. We had heard so many great things about cruising, so we decided to give it a try. .....Oh my!!...where to start... First...this is an old ship...carpets are stained...linen in the rooms were a dingy yellow. The towels always looked liked they had not been washed well. (yellow stains, red marks, old makeup looking marks on towels and washcloths..and this was even after asking for new ones) Second...our room attendant never knew what he was talking about when asked a questions...for example...i asked him if there was a way to print out our excursion tickets, since we had forgot to do so before leaving home and he said "no"...wrong!! they have computers set up with printers! Third...we could not port at CocoCay and was not offered any cruise deals or ship credits or anything...I'm convinced Coco Cay is messed up from Hurricane Matthew! Fourth...The waters were very rough on the 3rd and 4th night...as I am accustomed to flying..the pilot will come on the intercom and let everyone know we are experiencing turbulence"...well not on the ship!!..I didn't know if this was normal or if something was wrong...I was waiting for the captain to come over the loud speaker at any moment and let us know that we were experiencing rough waters or something!! Nothing!! For a first timer this was very unnerving! Fifth- we paid for the internet service that promised to be fast....welllllllll....fail....we were told it's slow in the rooms but fast if you come out to the common areas! -: I could go on...like the very smoky casino! But I've said enough and had enough to know we won't be doing another cruise anytime soon if at all....it is what we thought it was!! Read Less
