You will have a wonderful cruise! Try not to listen to all the negatives. If you are going to have fun you will have fun. It's a nice ship, cabins are small but who spends a lot of time in their cabin? The itinerary on the 4 night is terrific. As far as the ships condition they may have already worked on the worn spots by the time you go. Go with an open mind and you will have a terrific time!
This ship was no dissappointment at all. I had the next to the top floor for my room and it was not very big. However, I only sleep there and do whatever else that does not require a lot of space. The shows, the bars the dining, the casino...Everything was fun and elegant in nature.
I went on a 7 day Western Caribbean itinerary. Haiti, Jamaica, Grand Caeman and Cozumel. The best time to cruise the Caribbean is from January through May. The weather is best then. Huricane season starts in June.
I know that there are bigger ships but this one is a huge one too. You just can't imagine one bigger.
I highly recommend the ship and it's crew was outstanding. They earn their tips.
I would definitly travel on that ship again. It's been 4 years but surely the ship has not deteriorated within that time.
On the cabins, we had three of them, with two of them adjoining by an interior door. There is where my party of seven would congregate when we had the need, which was rare. We usually planned to meet elsewhere and everything worked out perfectly that way.
Good luck with the weather!
PS If you drink, take a suitcase full of plastic airplane travel bottles of booze. It's very expensive down there unless you drink that Red Stripe Beer all the time.
And...at the time there was no topless sun bathing. MY WIFE really approved of that. Maybe I'll try Carnival next time. I do go topless.
We sailed a 3-day cruise last yr.on Majesty and abslutely had a wonderful time. It was our first cruise and we wished it had been the 4-day as we weren't ready to get off. I think it is a beautiful ship but we didn't have any comparison, until this year. We loved that cruise so much that we went on a 7-day on Norwegian Sun. Brand new 2001 ship and Majesty ranks up there with a new ship because even though maybe a little worn, it still has elegance that some of the newer ships don't. We will continue cruising due to a wonderful experience with Majesty. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

I've gone and returned and can't wait to go again. I wrote this post about the Majesty questioning everything as this was my first cruise. How wonderful everything was and how beautiful and clean the Majesty was. Her staff and crew were absolutely top notch.
I could sail on her again and again. If you are thinking of cruising on the Majesty, don't give it a second thought. You will have the time of your life and will be sad when you return. Can't wait till June now, goin again on the Enchantment this time. Wish me luck!! Maggie
The 'Majesty of the Seas' plus her sister ship the 'Sovereign' are very nice ships to cruise on. Their itineraries are very similar and with the abscence of some minor cosmetic differences you would not tell the ships apart.
On the 'Magesty's four night cruise the itinerary includes Key West and on the 'Sovereign' you have a day cruising at sea. Another thing to remember is that you only have to drive as far as Port Canaveral when sailing the 'Sovereign' which is a big plus.
As far as negatives go, there is only one that I would mention. The ocean view cabins have that column sticking out in the corner by the window which does take up valuable space. Also, when requesting beds be placed together, they are positioned directly under the window.This means that one has to climb over the other when it's time to hit the hay. (OK for some I suspect!)
Parking is conveniently located directly across from the ships in both Miami and Port Canaveral and is generally secure. Ought to be, they charge enough. Cruiseman
