Farewell to Majesty of the Seas

Royal Caribbean will retire its long-serving Majesty of the Seas cruise ship in 2016, marking the end of an era.

Introduced in 1992, Majesty of the Seas is the last remaining of its three Sovereign class ships, the largest and most innovative cruise ships of their day. Referred to as “megaships,” because of their grand scale and cutting-edge features, the Sovereign class vessels, were cruise industry pioneers.

So what’s to become of Her Majesty? Like her sister ships, Monarch of the Seas and Sovereign of the Seas, she will join the Pullmantur fleet. A Spanish cruise line, Pullmantur’s parent company is Royal Caribbean.

The 2,384-passenger ship has hosted millions of passengers, with many loyal followers that have contributed to during her impressive reign. Majesty currently does three- and four-night Bahamas cruises, with a stop in CocoCay, Royal Carribbean’s own private island.

The ship’s hotel director is quoted as saying, “Majesty is like a fine wine: She only gets better with age.” Her soaring multi-tier atriums, the first at sea, still impress, as do a deck completely devoted to stateroom balconies, roomy staterooms and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Weighing around 74,000 tonnes, the Sovereign ships were the largest of their time. They are now dwarfed by the Oasis class  ships, which are 100,000 tonnes and maintain RCI’s reputation for having the largest ships at sea.

Majesty currently sails short three- and four-night cruises from Miami, which often draw first-time cruisers and families, much like she did when she first set sail. The ship’s itineraries feature stops in the Bahamas, including Royal Caribbean’s private island of CocoCay.

Majesty of the Seas sails her last voyage April 29, 2015.
