Majesty of the Seas Returns From Renovation

Friday, February 09, 2007
Less than a month after aging cruise ship Majesty of the Seas went off to drydock in the Bahamas to be refurbished, the new, improved Majesty sailed back to Miami on Feb. 8th to resume its schedule of three and four night cruises. When the 74,000 ton Majesty was put into service in 1992, the ship -- with its seven-story atrium -- was one of the largest, most modern cruise ships afloat.

There are 68 cruise ships in service larger than Majesty, with Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas boasting more than twice the gross tonnage. And beyond the size, the newer ships -- with their specialty restaurants, rock-climbing walls, surfing pools, bowling alleys and boxing rings -- have made cruise ships like Majesty appear to belong to a generation past. But many veteran cruise ship passengers continue to think smaller -- or at least a bit smaller -- is better, and even before its renovation, Majesty of the Seas had a number of loyal fans among cruisers.

On February 10th, Majesty of the Seas will sail on a two-day preview cruise before departing on its maiden voyage to the Bahamas on February 12th. Source: Cruise Ship Report
