Just off the Majesty this morning... Here are my thoughts!
First, when rooms open at 1:00, double check you are in the correct stateroom BEFORE you start unpacking
Yes, the ship is small, but some people still had problems navigating!
Yes, the staff is AMAZING!!!
The ship's condition was average. I didn't see paint peeling, mold or obvious signs of wear and tear.
Deck 8, cabins 8516 and 8520 had zero problems with air, bathroom, smells, etc. The water pressure was a little weak, and the air conditioning was never TOO COLD but everything was average, no complaints!
The cabins are small. Fine for 2 people, I would have struggled with 3 adults. Minimal storage space, but for a 4 night cruise, we had no problems. There IS storage space behind the vanity mirrors, and of course, under the bed. Shelves, safe and plenty of hangers in the closet. Full length mirror on door, 2 wall hooks and a drying line across the shower stall. Body wash/shampoo/conditioner mix provided in the shower, as well as a hair dryer in the vanity drawer. Shower Curtains were cloth and NOT the kind that hug you while showering!
Food is all personal. I am a vegetarian, and managed to always find something tasty. Let's be honest, if "restaurant rccl" was on land, I probably wouldn't go, but while cruising, the options were plentiful and it did the job.
Entertainment was good. The shows were typical old school cruise shows. The singers and dancers were very good. The comedians were funny.
BINGO ... complete rip off They promote the "packages" but you can buy the sheets without the "extras", and make out much better! It cost $96 for 2 packages + 1 pkg free. If we just bought the sheets, I think it would have been just $75. Oh, and that was for just 1 round of bingo
Casino was good to me. I went once, played about 4 spins and came out 5xs ahead of my investment! Was smart enough to walk away and not return! Then had my husband cash in the voucher so i wouldn't be tempted to give it back!
The pools are small. On day 1 and the sea day they were literally filled shoulder to shoulder with people... It was "people soup" at its finest! . on the mornings of port days, we had the pools to ourselves. Plan accordingly, people!!!
Boarding was a breeze! We arrived at about 10:00 and through check in within 10 minutes. Waited a bit then were on board in no time! Debarkation was equally fast! We walked off at 7:30, through customs (they do not participate in mobile passport at port everglades), waited about 15 minutes for an UBER, checked in at FLL and waiting for our flight by 8:30. If only the weather had cooperated that day. Our scheduled flight was delayed multiple times due to severe lightning storms. What we had expected to be a 6 hour trip with plane change turned into a 12.5 hour trip with 4 hours spent on the tarmac!
Those are the highlights! Being loyal to royal, almost Diamond ➕ members, who usually prefer to travel on the big ships, my companions and I agreed that we would happily sail the Majesty again!
If anyone has any specific questions, I will try to answer them!
