MS Majesty of the Seas is a Sovereign Class cruise ship owned 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.


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.


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.


On January 12, 2007, Majesty of the Seas entered a 4-week dry-dock period where she endured a multi-million 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.

Scale model

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.
