Majesty’s major refurbishment

Royal Caribbean has announced 23-year-old Majesty of the Seas will continue to offer short sailings next year.

Starting the end of 2016, she will homeport in Port Canaveral and sail three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas, with visits to the cruise line’s private island destination, CocoCay. The “tropical paradise” – reserved for Royal Caribbean guests – offers white-sand beaches and turquoise-blue waters set in 140 acres of lush vegetation.

“Our short itineraries have been very popular, offering guests the perfect opportunity to sample the unmatched experience of a Royal Caribbean cruise, as well as providing a quick, adventurous getaway,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.

But before she gets to her new home, she will be sent to drydock for an incredibly exciting array of upgrades:

  • The company is claiming it will have “the fastest internet at sea” onboard in Voom. It will be free and unlimited.
  • Waterslides for guests of all ages.
  • A poolside movie screen.
  • DreamWorks Experience – activities and entertainment featuring popular movie characters from the studio.
  • Izumi, a Japanese-style eatery serving sushi rolls and sashimi.
  • Sabor Taqueria, for Mexican cuisine.

“With these exciting new features as well as unprecedented fast and free unlimited internet for guests on Majesty of the Seas, we are stepping up our game and offering a phenomenal short cruise adventure for our guests,” said Mr Bayley.
