Majesty of the Seas Cruise Review
We sailed the Majesty of the Seas after its "overhaul". I cannot say that I have gone on any other cruises in order for comparison, but we had an ABSOLUTELY fantastic vacation. We chose this cruise initially because of its short sailing distance. We weren't sure if we were going to like cruising, or if we would be sick. We wished we would have picked a cruise that did have some sailing time because there was SO much to do on the ship and we didn't have near enough time to do everything we had wanted.
The food was FANTASTIC! The only problem is I think we gained 10 lbs each. And the entertainment was great. We saw a comedian one night, who was surprisingly funny, and we attended the last night song and dance. Nicely done!
Day 1 - Nassau
This was a port of disappointment-though it had nothing to do with the cruise itself! The vendors are VERY pushy and everyone is pushing you everywhere when you get off the ship. After we took the water taxi to Paradise Island (which was only $3 per person) we walked around the Atlantis and found a public beach nearby, the rest of the afternoon was pleasant. That night we ate at the Windjammer Cafe, which had a selection beyond belief! We felt spoiled. And the staff was there to meet your every need.
Day 2 - Coco Cay
This was my favorite destination, although it was quite windy. We were the first group off the ship because we had booked kayaking in the a.m. The beautiful water and hammocks hanging between each tree make this location paradise!!! Kayaking was fun and our Royal Caribbean kayaking guide was SO much fun! He jumped out of his kayak quite often in order to show our group some ocean life, picking up star fish and such. We also tried snorkeling, which I did not like. The spot to snorkel was really rocky, and it wasn't for me.
Day 3 - Key West
Key West was wonderful. It was a lot less windy. We booked a sailing trip from a vendor on the corner. It made you really appreciate the helpful, but not pushy, American people :) We booked sailing on the Appledor for $39 per person for a 2 hour sail, which included beer and wine. It was very relaxing and a nice view of Key West. We did a little shopping, and headed back to the ship early to lounge by the pool.
Overall, the ship and trip was FAR beyond my expectations. We loved it and are eager to book our next cruise and will DEFINITELY go Royal Caribbean. The staff treated us like royalty!
