Majesty of the Seas Overview

Majesty of the Seas is the perfect ship for three- and four-night cruises. There's enough to do to keep you busy during your single sea day, but nowhere near enough to feel like you've missed out on anything.

The vibe on the ship depends very much on the time of year -- quiet and sedate on early-in-the-year sailings, to full-on party ship during spring break, to family amusement park in the summer. There's also a strong Latin showing at any time of year as the ship tends to be popular with Spanish-speaking Florida residents, so venues are consistently lively, particularly the popular Boleros Latin lounge, which was a hit night after night; from the salsa dancing, you could tell the crowd knew what it was doing.

Cruisers are on Majesty to kick back and have fun, and this is reflected in the bars and at the pool, both of which are always packed with people. With no real quiet spaces set aside, be prepared for an ongoing party wherever you are onboard.

The crew, like most of your fellow passengers, is uniformly friendly; a lot of the staff have been onboard Majesty for years and seem to love it.

Because of its size and the fact that it only does short sailings, Majesty of the Seas is perfect for first-time cruisers, as well as the time-crunched who can't take more than a long weekend away from work. (You'll find yourself sailing with lots of Floridians who scooped up a cheap cruise and drove to the port from home.)

It's important to note that as one of Royal Caribbean's oldest ships, Majesty of the Seas does show its age, so if you're looking for the newest, shiniest ships you've seen in a Royal Caribbean commercial with big attractions and a Broadway show, you're likely to be disappointed.
