Majesty of the Seas is an old ship and cabins are on the small side, with standard ocean views at 120 square feet and superior ocean views at a still-tiny 157 square feet. At 114 square feet, interior cabins are generally difficult to maneuver. Decor wise expect shades of green (think jade) with pink accents, which does rather date the ship. (One painting of a tropical flower will probably adorn your wall.)

Note, just 63 cabins have balconies -- and all of those are suites.

All cabins have flat-screen TVs with multilingual programming, safes and hair dryers. Most allow for the conversion of two twin beds to a queen-sized bed. Closet and drawer space is ample.

The majority of standard cabins do not have refrigerators; the "mini-fridge and snack bar" consists of small snack packets including candy and nuts, warm soda cans and bottled water left out on the desk with a note card indicating price. However, cabins on Decks 9 and 10 -- no matter their category -- do have small fridges.

Bathrooms are small, and there is limited space for amenities. If you are carrying a lot of your own stuff, you may have to store the bigger bottles in the main cabin. Amenities include a bar of soap and a wall-mounted shampoo dispenser inside the shower, plus the dreaded clingy curtain.

There are interconnecting rooms on every deck, and also a number of rooms (both Inside and Oceanview), which can house three or four people either via pulldown beds or a sofa bed.

Inside: There are 460 interior cabins, and as noted, these 114 square foot cabins are smaller than the industry average. As well as all the above, you'll get bedside drawers, a desk and chair, as well as a large mirror.

Oceanview: There are 670 Oceanview cabins, making up the bulk of the cabin types onboard. The window is oblong, and slightly recessed, thus providing an extra shelf. There is a desk, with shelves and a mirror with 110 volt power sockets below. There is a three-door wardrobe, one side of which is a chest of drawers with the safe on top. There is also a little sofa and a glass coffee table.

Mini-suite: The ship's 50 Junior Suites are all located on Deck 10. They run 221 square feet apiece with balconies that are 60 square feet. Balcony furniture, consisting of two chairs and a small table, is aluminum. They include a sitting area with single sofa bed and a private bathroom with tub. Junior Suite passengers enjoy complimentary in-cabin tea and coffee service, bathrobes for use onboard and bathroom amenities.

Suite: The 13 suites are situated on Deck 10, and all enjoyed a significant refresh during the 2016 refurb. Out went the old fixtures and fittings, in came a more modern and contemporary look in terms of furniture, drapes, decor and bedding. Suites feature light and airy decor with creams, tans, whites and pastels throughout.

Additions to the suite bathrooms include Jacuzzi baths and modern fittings. Suite passengers will also find four travel-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion in the bathrooms, rather than the fixed-wall dispenser.

Suite passengers enjoy a number of perks, including priority check-in and departure; reserved seating for main theater and entertainment shows; priority tender tickets on select sailings; VIP pool deck seating; full breakfast, lunch and dinner dining room menus available for in-room dining; board games available to order for in-room entertainment; spa bathrobes for use onboard; complimentary bathroom amenities; luggage and valet service; and free pressing on formal night. Suite passengers (and Diamond and Pinnacle members) also get invited to onboard parties and a drinks and canape event on CocoCay with officers.

Grand Suite: There are six Grand Suites, five with one bedroom and one with two bedrooms. The one-bedroom suites come in at 355 square feet with a 119-square-foot balcony. The design is studio style, with one part of the suite given over to a living area and the other the sleeping area, with a heavy curtain as a room divider. The one with two bedrooms has a master bedroom with a queen bed and a second bedroom with three bunk beds and a single sofa bed. It has two bathrooms, a living area and a balcony. The room is 377 square feet, with an 85-square-foot balcony.

Owners Suite: There are three Owners Suites, 446 square feet apiece, each with a 119-square-foot balcony. These have two twin beds that convert to a Royal King (slightly smaller than a traditional king), sitting area with double sofa bed, bathroom with tub and private balcony.

Royal Suite: Majesty has one Royal Suite, which is an impressive 670 square feet with a 154-square-foot balcony. It features a whirlpool bath, separate living room and wet bar.

Royal Family Suite: This category has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room area with a sofa bed. One bedroom features two twin beds that convert into a Royal King and a pulldown bed; the other bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The Royal Family Suite measures 364 square feet, with a 78-square-foot balcony.

The ship has just four cabins for people with disabilities -- two Inside and two Superior Oceanview. Door width (for both the main cabin door and the bathroom door) is 32 inches.
