Overall, the cruise was excellent. My wife and I took this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It worked out great as a long weekend so we weren't away from work or the kids too long. We have cruised twice before, 1st time on RCI Explorer of the Seas (130+ Tons), and then on the Norwegian Dawn (94 Tons), both to Bermuda. When we cruised on the Dawn, we felt the ship moving a lot more than when we are on EoS, and I was concerned that an even smaller ship would be worse, but we hardly felt any motion on the Majesty.

My wife is on a Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Wheat Free, low fiber diet, so our dining experience was not the typical one. Anyone with a special dietary need can rest assured that RCI will go out of their way for you. We met with the dining room staff upon boarding the ship and explained our needs (we had contacted guest services before we left). The head waiter (Angela from Jamaica) could not have been more helpful, she would bring us the menu for the next evening so my wife could pick out a gluten free meal. For breakfast, she had gluten free pancakes that Angela ordered for her the night before. One afternoon the main dining room was not open for lunch, but Angela requested a special meal be prepared for my wife in the Windjammer. When we walked in for lunch, we talked to the Maitre'd of the Windjammer, and they had my wife's meal ready before I got back from the buffet!

We had a Junior suite, which I think is the equivalent of a balcony room on the Explorer of the Seas, Roomy enough for 2 people, and the bathroom had a full size tub!

The onboard activities were great. I went to the fitness center and was disappointed to see the lack of elliptical machines, but the ceiling is too low for them. The equipment was in good shape, the weight machines looked to be new, the exercise bikes were good, but the treadmills were a little shaky. The rock climbing wall was a blast and the staff running it was great. The Casino was fun.

We stayed on board at Co Co Cay, and went to Atlantis in Nassau. No excursions.

The trip was fantastic, I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a quick long weekend.
