MS Majesty of the Seas is a Sovereign-class cruise ship owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd and operated by Royal Caribbean International. She was built at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyards in Saint-Nazaire, France, and placed in service on April 26, 1992. Her Godmother is Queen Sonja of Norway. Plans to transfer Majesty of the Seas to Pullmantur in 2016 had been announced on November 21, 2014, however in July 2015, Royal Caribbean reversed those plans, instead stating that Majesty of the Seas would stay with Royal Caribbean International. A 1/8 scale model of the Majesty of the Seas was built in Morsbach by François Zanella. The Majesty of the Seas (mini) was launched in 2005. She does river cruises in and around Paris.

Her features include the line-trademark Viking Crown Lounge overlooking the pool and sun decks. The ship has an onboard casino and 11 passenger elevators, two of which are glass-walled. Onboard bars include the Schooner Bar, A Touch of Class Champagne Bar, Blue Skies Lounge, Boleros Latin Bar, On Your Toes Nightclub, Windjammer Café, and the Pool Bar. There are also two swimming pools, two hot tubs, a basketball court, and a rock climbing wall. The ship has 2,384 double occupancy and 346 triple-quad occupancy staterooms.

On January 12, 2007, Majesty of the Seas entered a 4-week dry-dock period where she underwent a multimillion-dollar refurbishment of the pool decks, all public areas, restaurants, shops, centrums, and cabins. Additions include Johnny Rockets, The Compass Deli, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Freeze ice cream, cabins, Boleros (Latin night club), and other Royal Caribbean Amenities. Majesty of the Seas entered dry-dock after her April 29, 2016 cruise to receive several upgrades, a children’s water play area, a poolside movie screen, and upgrades to the casino.

Majesty of the Seas is routinely used by Royal Caribbean on a 7-day cycle that includes two weekly voyages. Four night cruises operate every Monday through Friday from the Port of Miami, stopping at Nassau, Coco Cay (a private island owned by Royal Caribbean), and Key West. A three-night cruise follows to Nassau and Coco Cay only each weekend. However, this 7 day cycle is no longer used. From 2011 to 2014, the Majesty of the Seas was the location of the annually held 70000 Tons of Metal Festival. The festival sailed from Miami to a different Caribbean destination each year before returning to Miami after four nights. For the 2015 to 2017 festival’s, Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas hold the event. On May 16, 2016, Majesty of the Seas relocated to Port Canaveral now operating a new 7-day cycle with four night cruises sailing every Monday through Friday, stopping at Nassau, Coco Cay (a private island owned by Royal Caribbean), and one day at sea. A three-night cruise follows to Nassau and Coco Cay only each weekend.
