Majesty of the Seas

Our Ship Review
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

Editor's note: This ship is no longer sailing as part of the Royal Caribbean fleet. 

When Majesty of the Seas was introduced in 1992, it was the world’s largest cruise ship. Now, the 2,350-passenger vessel is considered mid-sized and is one of the smallest in the Royal Caribbean fleet. Renovated in 2007, Majesty of the Seas was set to be transferred to RCCL’s Spanish division Pullmantur Cruises in 2015, but plans changed and she will instead be refitted again and remain in the fleet, sailing three- and four-day itineraries to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral beginning in May 2016.

What We Love

Gorgeous Lines: This was one of the last ships designed with real curves, from the sharply raked bow to the layer cake superstructure and rounded stern inspired by the 1930s French liner Normandie. They just don’t build them like this anymore. 

Wraparound Promenade: Majesty of the Seas' wide, 360-degree promenade on deck 7 is a favorite spot for walkers and those who enjoy the fresh sea air — and there's also a jogging track on deck 12.

Best Known For

Viking Crown Lounge: Like a giant spaceship, the Viking Crown Lounge hovers around Majesty of the Seas' funnel and offers spectacular views over both the pool deck and ocean.

Pioneering the Mega Ship: The third ship in Royal Caribbean’s Sovereign class, Majesty of the Seas was one of the world’s first mega ships — more than twice the size of the average cruise ship of its time. Offering multiple entertainment and dining venues, she was a game-changer that led to the massive modern vessels of today.

Who It's Best For

First-Time Cruisers and Families: Majesty of the Seas will be getting a giant poolside movie screen, family-friendly hot tubs, free unlimited Voom Wi-Fi, an updated casino, and some other nips and tucks that will keep it viable for first-time cruisers and families seeking to test the waters on a three- or four-night adventure.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Tight Quarters: There's no denying that the ship's cabins are small (interior staterooms measure just 114 square feet and most ocean view staterooms are 120 square feet). Plus, only suite categories have balconies. Majesty of the Seas is a high-density ship, carrying up to 2,744 guests at full capacity, so expect lines and crowds.
