Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas' capacity is 2,350, putting it in the mega-cruise category, which helps keep costs low. The ship was inaugurated 20 years ago and some Royal Caribbean reviews say it's showing its age (thin walls, weak water pressure, dated decor) but still provides a cheap respite from the daily grind. Majesty of the Seas regularly takes three- and four-night cruises through the Bahamas with stops in Nassau and CocoCay, a private island reserved for Royal Caribbean passengers; some cruises also make a stop at Key West, FL. All trips depart from Miami. Excursions, such as snorkeling and cultural tours on the mainland, can be reserved online up to four days prior to departure.
