Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas Cruise Review
Majesty of the Seas is the subject of many positive Royal Caribbean cruise reviews, and it's easy to see why. The four-night Bahamas cruises aboard this ship start at $199 per person, cheaper than most Royal Caribbean International voyages. According to reviews, Majesty of the Seas caters to all ages with a full menu of entertainment, adventure, and food options, plus onshore excursions. On Expedia, customers of all ages rank the ship high for quality of service and overall experience. The staff garners numerous shout-outs from passengers on sites such as Cruise Reviews and Yelp, where writers commend the staff's hard work, attentiveness, and professionalism in Royal Caribbean cruise reviews. Royal Caribbean International also earned a nod in 2012 from Porthole Cruise Magazine for the best adventure cruises, best eco-friendly operations, and best on-board activities.
The capacity on Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas 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 cruise 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, Fla. 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.
The bottom line: Sailing with Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas lets you experience a weekend getaway at a bargain price. Unique features like an on-board rock wall and flexible dining (enjoy your evening meal anytime during normal dinner hours) help make this a favorite all-ages ship. Above-average service makes frugal travelers eager to cruise again and again.
