Majesty of the Seas refurbishment

Royal Caribbean have announce that the popular Majesty of the Seas will undergo a multimillion dollar refurbishment in May 2016 before being relocating to Port Canaveral.

The Majesty of the Seas was built in France and launched in 1992. She was most recently refurbished in 2007 during a 4 week dry-dock period. At that time all the ships public areas, pool decks and cabins were upgraded.

The 2016 refurbishment will see the ship transformed. In a move that is bound to be popular with travellers, unlimited free WiFi internet access will be offered to all guests following the upgrade.

Other new features to be introduced on Majesty of the Seas will be waterslides for guests of all ages, family-friendly Jacuzzis,  a poolside movie screen and the DreamWorks Experience featuring activities and entertainment with Shrek, Fiona and other favourite characters from the powerhouse animation studio’s popular movies.

Following the Majesty of the Seas refurbishment there will also be new dining options onboard including Izumi, showcasing Japanese cuisine with fresh and flavourful sushi rolls and sashimi, the Sabor Taqueria featuring a mouthwatering menu of authentic and modern Mexican dishes which include hand-made table-side guacamole, and the Chef’s Table, an exclusive experience hosted by the Executive Chef and Sommelier for an intimate wine pairing dinner.

Michael Bayley, president & CEO, Royal Caribbean International told CruiseOyster: “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.”

After the Majesty of the Seas refurbishment the ship will relocate to Port Canaveral, on Florida’s Space Coast, and offer short cruises to the Bahamas. These 3 and 4-night cruises will visit to Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, CocoCay. The Island is always popular with guests – it’s a tropical paradise offering white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters set in 140 acres of lush vegetation. The Island also features an aquatic park and water slide, beach volleyball and soccer, snorkelling and other water-based recreation.

“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.

Majesty of the Seas will enter dry-dock after her 29 April 2016 cruise.


  1. I just read this article…Wrong…the Majesty of the Seas was not refurbished in May 2016. I was on her in the end of October and friends in September and all of us were appalled by the condition of the ship. For one the bathrooms “ours” was an inside cabin because my daughter is afraid of heights and did not want a window…was horrible…the bathroom floor tiles were black with mold. the vanity (old metal one) was chipped and rusted in more than one place. So this article should be updated. If TMS was in fact refurbished then they did a poor job and probably just threw a shoddy paint job on it and nothing more. I will post this on my blog so that other people can be wary if they want a clean and and clean looking bathroom and things like window sills. I am very disappointed as my husband and I retired to Florida and our plan was to hop on RCC for a short 4 night cruise several times during the year. Now we can’t do that from (our nearest port 50 min) Port Canaveral, as we would have to go 2 1/2 hr to Tampa. Not sure I want to go there either as The Majesty of the Sea’s sister ship is there… Empress of the Sea’s and she is as old as the Majesty. Both these ships do 3-4 nights. Last year in May I was also on the Navigator of the Seas for 7 days…Enjoyed that cruise, the ship was in descent order( clean!!) When I planned our February cruise I went with Norwegian Cruise lines on the Epic…the ship was clean and first on the list when considering any over-night accommodations on land or sea…that’s was important to us.
