MAJESTY OF THE SEAS FACTS

Description
MS Majesty of the Seas is one of Royal Caribbean International's Sovereign class cruise ships. She was built at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyards in France in 1992. The ship underwent a major multi-million dollar refurbishment in 2007.

Destinations
The Majesty of the Seas sails on several short cruise tours featuring a 7-day cycle. This includes a four-night cruise that leaves Miami every Monday through Friday, docking at Nassau, Coco Cay, and Key West. In the weekends, the ship goes on a three-night cruise that drops Key West from the itinerary.

History
The Majesty of the Seas, part of the Sovereign class, was built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, France. It was christened by Queen Sonja of Norway and went on its maiden voyage in April 4, 1992, which means it is one of Royal Caribbean’s oldest cruise ships. However, in January 2007, it underwent a major refurbishment that cost Royal Caribbean $36 million. The refurbishment added several extra dining options and beautified the public areas such as the pool decks and centrums.

Dining
There are two main dining rooms onboard, namely the Moonlight and the Starlight. Both offer travelers a lovely atmosphere fit for fine dining with elegant carpeting, luxuriant draperies, and upholstered seating. The menu includes standard thoroughfare as well as special diets such as low-salt or low-sugar options. Breakfast is better enjoyed at the Windjammer Marketplace, though, with its bacon, biscuits, waffles, fruits, French toast, pancakes, and homemade gravy. For dessert, Freeze Ice-Cream offers a wide array of ice cream confections.

One of the unique and newly added dining options onboard is the Compass Deli, which offers excellent paninis and wraps. And of course, the usual Johnny Rockets diner and Sorrento Italian pizzeria are on board too to offer great snacks for passengers. There is also a poolside barbecue on certain nights offered as part of the Majesty of the Seas activity schedule.

Entertainment
The Majesty of the Seas features the Viking Crown Lounge where guests can relax and enjoy the overlooking view of the pool and the sun decks. Guests looking for a more upbeat experience can head to the Bolero’s Latin lounge. But what most reviews rave about is the Spectrum, which has been dubbed as one of the prettiest rooms at sea. This features a sprawling lounge in a cozy black and wine semi-rustic theme. For other entertainment options, the ship also has a casino plus several bars including the Schooner Bar, the Blue Skies Lounge, the Pool Bar, and the On Your Toes Nightclub, which offers the ship’s main nightlife activities.

For a taste of culture, guests can spend time watching classical performances at the Chorus Line theater, while a small library houses several books to delight book lovers. For sports-minded guests, the Majesty of the Seas offer two swimming pools, a basketball court, and a rock climbing wall, lacking some of the more radical offers of the more recent ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet. A large part of the 2007 refurbishment cost went into upgrading the spa and fitness center onboard, namely the ShipShape fitness area and the Steiner-operated spa with its Elemis spa and beauty products.

Cabins
The cabins are fully furnished and the beds, carpeting, and draperies are all new. Passengers have plenty of closet and drawer space. The balcony cabins are quite popular but are limited in number; guests who are eyeing them should book early.
