Things to Do

Entertainment


Broadway shows & Dance spectaculars

The Majesty of the Seas has something for everyone.  Every sailing features original productions you can only see onboard. Amazing vocalists and dancers deliver rousing performances wrapped up in stunning sets and transcendent multimedia productions. Whether it’s a jazz excursion, techno-inspired cabaret or something beyond, prepare to be amazed. There are numerous casino events throughout the day, including Texas Hold’em, three card poker and blackjack tournaments.

 Dining

Moonlight & Starlight (Decks 3 & 4): Moonlight (Deck 3) and Starlight (Deck 4) are the ship’s main dining rooms, and the decor is rich but not pretentious. At dinner, expect starters including shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque or perhaps an eggplant artichoke tart; entrees might include roast duck, salmon and steak. Desserts might include pistachio and chocolate ice cream, and a selection of cheeses.

Each night is themed, and the Italian night slightly upped the game in terms of starters, with delicious tiger prawns served in garlic and beurre blanc and a decent antipasti selection.

A Royal Lifestyle menu offers lighter and healthier items such as salads and grilled chicken breast; and there is always a selection of vegetarian options as part of each course. Low-salt, low-sugar, gluten-free and other special diets are also accommodated, and Royal Caribbean’s fleet is free of trans-fat.  The wine selection, is impressive, with a wide variety, both of grapes and countries,  including an excellent selection of New World wines.

Windjammer Cafe (Deck 10): The ship’s buffet, Windjammer was refreshed in 2016 including new tiles throughout and a new buffet counter. Breakfast at the Windjammer features an omelet station, fresh fruit, cold cuts, bacon and sausage, hash browns, fruit, pancakes and more hot foods in addition to a cereal counter with single-serve boxes and cartons of milk, as well as tea, coffee and juice dispensers.

Lunch and dinner offer almost too many options, with the center buffet area touting tacos, burgers, hot dogs and pasta dishes; while outer counters are typically themed by cuisine, such as Mediterranean, Asian and specialties local to the region you’re sailing in. The local counter is always fun and the food is spot on. Bahamian night, for instance, offers Royal Caribbean’s take on conch. An eclectic dessert station offers a sweet end to your meal, and, at night, a crew member is ready, scoop in hand, to dish out ice cream in front of the bar counter.

Nightlife & Lounges

There is always something going on, on this fun-packed ship. The cruises are short and passengers maximize their drinking time, packing out all the bars at most times of day or night — except the Viking Crown Lounge, which is quiet day and night and makes a pleasant respite, should you wish some quiet time — and great views.

Schooner Bar (Deck 5): The Schooner Bar enjoyed the biggest refurbishment of all the ship’s public spaces in 2016, with new, smart wood paneling and flooring, new chairs in nautical blues and whites and comfy, old-looking brown sofas.  It also boasts a piano player each night, who takes requests, and belts out sing-along hits until the early hours.

Boleros (Deck 7): Boleros has a distinct Latin feel that comes alive on Majesty, and once the Dominican Quartet starts playing, with mojitos and caipirinhas flowing, you will see how.

Spectrum (Deck 8): Spectrum is as close to a club as Majesty gets, with a large dance floor, DJs at one end, a bar at the other and plenty of seating all round — not that you’ll be sitting.

Pool Bar (Beck 11): This is the main pool bar.  It’s open all day, serving beer, wine and cocktails.

Sky Bar (Deck 12): Added in the 2016 refit, this small bar is just above the main pool bar and makes a good spot to look down on the pool deck and people-watch.

Viking Crown Lounge (Deck 14): A staple on Royal Caribbean ships, guarantees a great bird’s-eye view of the pool deck and surrounding sea. It’s one of the quietest places on the ship making it a great spot if you’re looking to get away from the craziness on the pool deck or in Spectrum.

Pools, Fitness & Fun

There are two pools on the main pool deck (Deck 11), one adult and one for children, with plenty of rows of loungers around both. The refit included two new hot tubs installed, in addition to the two existing ones, on a raised area right beside the splash zone.

The 35 foot rock wall is situated at the aft of the ship high up on Deck 12, against the funnel. Below you will find the sports deck, where you can take part in soccer shootouts, basketball and table tennis, among other games.

Just For Kids One of the biggest features added during the 2016 dry dock is the kiddies’ splash pool area, Splashaway Bay. The actual pool has a water park, which includes a tiny slide, a tunnel slide, water cannons, a drench bucket and lots of brightly colored fixtures on which to climb and hide. There are lifeguards present throughout the day.
