Hi Susan. We will be on Norwegian Majesty next week to Bermuda -- it will be our fourth time. The destination can't be beat, and there is so much to see and do that you will likely not have enough time to do everything in one visit. Bermuda is also a very easy place to get around on your own, between the bus and ferry service, although these do take a lot of time in some cases.
The larger ships go only to King's Wharf, which frankly, isn't much. Norwegian Majesty berths at St. George, a quaint town with a lot of history and within walking distance of several nice beaches.
Of the ships you've mentioned, I have been on Rhapsody of the Seas only. Norwegian Majesty will definitely have a different feel. The ship is smaller, but I feel that's a positive as you will see the same people throughout the week -- both pax and crew. There are great nooks throughout the ship, such as a set of window seats overlooking the ocean... magnificent. And, there's Freestyle Dining, of which I am generally not a fan, but it works well in Bermuda as you do not have to rush back to the ship to make a set dining time.
If you do decide to book, note that cabins are small. Very small. We've been in several cabin types, so please ask away. One key is that the standard outside cabins are actually smaller than the superior inside cabins. I'm happy to assist with cabin selection, if you'd like.
Of course, everyone's tastes are different, so I can't answer with any certainty as to whether you will be happy with the ship. I've found that having expectations in line helps a great deal.
