The Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas is a popular floating resort. The waters are crowded with sea-worthy vessels, so to make planning easier, we've done all the prep work for a cruise vacation. As part of a Huffington Post Travel series on cruise ships, here is a tip sheet offering all the key information one could ever need to know about the Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas.

Destinations

The Majesty of the Seas sails on three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas from Miami. The ship visits Key West in Florida, as well as the Bahamian ports of Nassau, Freeport and Coco Cay.

Grand Ship

The Majesty of the Seas is a Sovereign-class cruise ship. At the time it was built, the Majesty was one of the largest cruise ships afloat, and the ship is designed with luxury at every turn.

Special Features

Adults on the Majesty of the Seas can enjoy playing blackjack and poker at the Casino Royale or having a night out in one of the dance lounges. Age-appropriate activities are available for children via the Adventure Ocean program, and teens can experience cruising nightlife in the supervised Teen Lounge. Together, families can enjoy the rock-climbing wall and the open-air basketball court.

Accommodations

An interior stateroom on the Majesty of the Seas has two twin beds with the option of being converted into a queen-size bed. The ship offers two different oceanview staterooms, with one as large as 155 square feet. Five different suites are available on the Majesty, including one designed for the family with two bedrooms.

Cost

Even with the short cruises, prices vary on the Majesty of the Seas. A three-night cruise to the Bahamas may cost as little as $209 per person for an interior cabin and $549 per person for a suite. On the other hand, the four-night cruise to the Bahamas that sets off on New Year's Eve costs $489 per person for an inside stateroom and $1,049 per person for a suite. In the fall, customers are more likely to find a less expensive cruise passage.

Excursion

One passenger recommended the Stuart's Cove snorkeling excursion, which includes coral reef and shark snorkeling. While the passenger recommended the excursion, he did not recommend it for the faint of heart, since sharks were abundant.

Dining Experience

The two main dining rooms on the Majesty of the Seas are the Moonlight and Starlight which were both refurbshed in a 2007 renovation. Buffet meals are served in the Windjammer restaurant, while Johnny Rockets is available for a quick bite with retro burgers and a shake shop. The ship also offers 24-hour room service for those passengers looking to spend a relaxing meal in their rooms.

Maiden Voyage

The Majesty of the Seas made its maiden voyage on April 26, 1992 and entered a dry dock for refurbishment in 2007. The ship's "godmother" is Queen Sonja of Norway.

In The News

The Palm Beach Post reported that the Majesty of the Seas contacted the Coast Guard after a crew member fell overboard. The man was found and taken to the hospital.
