Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Majesty of the Seas by Mr Veendam Bahamas August 20, 2007

Now for the review. The Majesty just had a makeover and came back on line last Feb. Boy they did a great job! Now we never cruised on her before, but did do the third cruise on her sister ship SOS back in 1988!! And the feeling we had walking on board the Majesty of the Seas was the same feeling we had walking on the SOS way back in 1988. Great! That's the kind of job that was done on the Majesty. She feels new!

The cabins are small on this class of RCCI ship and it doesn't have the a lot of balcony cabins like on her newer sisters, i.e Liberty of the Seas, which, with the Majesty was part of our B2B cruises we did on both ships this vacation.

The Windjammer is so much better then before. The food is also better! They added a great place to eat, Johnny Rockets! Best apple pie alamo & shakes anywhere! The food in the main dining room was very good. One thing about the food on Royal Caribbean, it's so much better then a few years ago. Ok, this was our tenth Royal Caribbean cruise and 69th over all! We never went on RCCI for the food, always the overall cruise which we think is the best of all the cruise lines. We used to rate RCCI food before this year as a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. Now we rate it between 6 and 7, it got that much better! Now I wouldn't call it the best cruise food we ever had, but it was very good.

The shows where great. This is a strong point with RCCI. They were very good! The lounges were very good. We didn't get back to the cabin until after 2 am every night. The night life is very good on this ship!

The pool area I love. It's big with a lot of lounges to sit by the pool. We always got one anytime! I really think the pool area on this class of RCCI ships is the best in the fleet. Everything that goes on here is great.

The ports for the week were Co Co Cay it rained there .But we still had a good time .I got an hours nap in one of the Hammocks just great .Love Co Co cay even in the rain !!! The next port was Nassau did some shopping and took the ferry over to Pad.Island .Great beach day .And i think the best port of the cruise Kay west .It was great the weather was great .Now we have been to this island many times on other cruise .But we love them all !! Last thoughts of the Majesty of the seas . She looks and feel like a new ship great job Royal Caribbean .Like i said the food is better now !! The shows and night life is great . And the service was great .my 2 boy"s 15 %& 16 had a great time . And they used room service everyday when watching movies in the cabin. It was great !! The boy"s liked cruise Even better then on the Liberty of the seas witch was the next weeks cruise !!

The ports for the week were Co Co Cay. It rained there, but we still had a good time. I got an hour's nap in one of the hammocks which was just great. Loved Co Co Cay even in the rain!

The next port was Nassau. Did some shopping and took the ferry over to Pad. Island. Great beach day.

I think the best port of the cruise Key West. It was great and the weather was great. Now we have been to this island many times on other cruises, but we love them all!

Last thoughts of the Majesty of the Seas: She looks and feels like a new ship. Great job Royal Caribbean! Like I said, the food is better now! The shows and night life is great too. And the service was great. My two boys, ages 15 and 16, had a great time. And they used room service everyday when watching movies in the cabin. It was great! The boys liked the cruise even better than on the Liberty of the Seas which was the next week's cruise! This was the second of three cruises we had done on RCCI this year alone! First was an 11-day Empress of the Seas cruise out of San Juan back in February, and this cruise on the Majesty of the Seas, and the next week on the brand new Liberty of the Seas. WOW! What a ship! And, we are booked to do a nine-day Canada cruise round trip from Bayonne NJ on 8/28/08. But, before that cruise we will be doing an 11-day cruise 2/16/08 on the HAL Noordam out of NYC, our first wintertime cruise from NYC. We live in NJ! Hope you enjoyed my short review of this great ship. The Liberty review is coming shortly!
