In a surprise move, not only does Royal Caribbean International plan on retaining its oldest cruise ship – the Majesty of the Seas – but it also intends to greatly enhance it. Once upgraded, the vessel will homeport in Port Canaveral, Florida and set sail on short Bahamian sailings beginning in summer 2016.
To start, Majesty of the Seas will provide unlimited Voom, the fastest internet at sea according to Royal Caribbean, to its guest free of charge. Infrastructural improvements include new all-ages waterslides, Jacuzzis, a poolside cinema screen, an upgraded casino, enhanced suite accommodations and new entertainment and dining options. For instance, the DreamWorks Experience, highlighting characters like Shrek and Fiona, is headed onboard.
New culinary experiences will include Izumi for Japanese cuisine and sushi and sashimi, al fresco Sabor Taqueria for Mexican eats like table-side guacamole, and the exclusive Chef’s Table wine pairing dinner hosted by the ship’s Executive Chef and Sommelier.
“Our short itineraries have been very popular offering vacationers the perfect opportunity to sample the unmatched experience of a Royal Caribbean cruise, as well as providing a quick adventurous getaway,” says Michael Bayley, president & CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “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.”
Majesty of the Seas will set sail on 3- and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas with a stop at the cruise line’s private island of CocoCay. Sailings beginning on May 27, 2016 are available to book now. For more information, visit Royal Caribbean International‘s website here.
