|Majesty of the Seas|
The Majesty of the Seas was introduced into service in 1992 and can carry approximately 2,350 passengers and 812 crew members. In 2007, she underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment to improve and update her and changes were made to the pool decks, all public areas, restaurants, shops (like the picture of the Centrum below), and cabins. Other additions include Johnny Rockets, the Compass Deli, Seattle's Best Coffee, Freeze ice cream, and Boleros (as seen in this picture). Having a basketball court, rock climbing wall, two pools and two hot tubs doesn't hurt either as my family likes to stay active while on vacation. I also liked the Compass Deli because it is tucked in above the Windjammer and most people don't know it exists. They offer salads and sandwiches, but also crepes! My friend likes Sorrentos, also above the Windjammer, because she can get her kids pizza any time, especially in between meals after they have been swimming or running around all day.
Inside cabins are 119 square feet; ocean view cabins are 122 square feet; superior ocean view cabins are 157 square feet; Junior Suites are 263 square feet with a 74 square foot balcony; Grand Suites are 382 square feet with a 90 square foot balcony; and the Royal Suite is 371 square feet with a 155 square foot balcony. However, if you are looking for a quick getaway and can get past the small cabin, especially if you don't anticipate spending much time in your cabin, you can't beat the price on a short Bahamas cruise on Majesty of the Seas.

Dining Options/Food: Royal Caribbean utilizes the same menu on all of its ships in the main dining and does change it up every few months. You can expect some of the cruise line's same offerings such as their steak, escargot, and French onion soup, but I like that they offer an Indian vegetarian option as well. I asked for special meals on my last cruise including tofu and steamed vegetables and they were extremely accommodating. Their food is pretty basic and you can get a decent meal, although I would never claim it to be gourmet. You can find lots of basic cruise-type food in the Windjammer from salads to hamburgers, etc. and more formal meals in the evening.

What Type of Client Would I Recommend for the Majesty of the Seas? Short 3- and 4-night Bahamas cruises are great for first time cruisers, but also fantastic for quick weekend getaways when you just need to get out of town and go somewhere warm. Sometimes we find great last minute airfare and what better way to take advantage of a sale price then to go on a cruise? Singles, couples, families, extended families, and groups will all have fun on a short Bahamas cruise, but for a true vacation you might want to opt for a 7-night or longer cruise.
