Following popular demand, Majesty of the Seas will continue to offer short cruises under the Royal Caribbean International brand and will homeport in Port Canaveral, along Florida’s Space coast, from summer 2016.
Before her season in Port Canaveral, where she will sail to the Bahamas, Majesty of the Seas will go into dry dock for upgrades and receive a range of innovative on board amenities.
Voom, the fastest internet at sea, will be available free exclusively for guests on Majesty of the Seas, enabling them to stay connected, brag about their holiday to friends and family, stream their favourite movies and music, and enjoy popular online video gaming.
Other exciting new features to be introduced on Majesty of the Seas include thrilling waterslides, family-friendly Jacuzzis, a poolside movie screen and award-winning entertainment.
Guests will also be able to enjoy the Dreamworks Experience, featuring activities and entertainment with Shrek, Fiona and other favourite characters from the animation studio’s popular movies.
An enhanced casino will offer gamers a variety of popular slot machines and table games and suite guests will enjoy exclusive amenities and services as part of a newly enhanced suite programme.
Some of the new culinary options include Izumi Japanese cuisine with fresh sushi rolls and sashimi, the Sabor Taqueria, featuring a mouth-watering menu of authentic and modern Mexican dishes, which can be enjoyed alfresco; and the Chef’s Table, an exclusive experience hosted by the Executive Chef and Sommelier for an intimate wine pairing dinner.
“Our short itineraries have been very popular offering holidaymakers 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, 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 sail three and four night cruises to the Bahamas with visits to the cruise line’s private island destination, CocoCay.
Highly rated among guests, this tropical paradise offers white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters set in 140 acres of lush vegetation.
The secluded Bahamian island, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features an aquatic park and water slide, beach volleyball and football, snorkelling and other water-based recreation.
With Majesty of the Seas’ move, the cruise line is now able to deploy Rhapsody of the Seas – which was announced to sail short Bahamas itineraries from Port Canaveral – to Tampa offering seven-night Western Caribbean cruises in winter 2016.
The new itineraries will further expand the choices for guests in Central Florida and help Royal Caribbean increase the total number of US destinations, from where holidaymakers can find conveniently accessible ports to embark on the ultimate Caribbean cruise adventure.
