Norwegian Majesty Overview

The Norwegian Majesty cruise ship departs from Boston, MA and Charleston, SC. Throughout the year, she offers ocean cruises to Bermuda, Eastern Caribbean, and Western Caribbean.

After her recent stretching, the Norwegian Majesty reenters service as an almost new ship. Those who may have cruised her in the past will be pleasantly surprised by the numerous changes that have been made. The addition of the new 112' midsection brought many improvements. Additions include two new restaurants, 203 passenger cabins, 33 crew cabins, another swimming pool, two whirlpool spas, a new deck bar, a coffee bar, a new casino, two elevators and a stair tower.

Additional improvements include new teak decking on Sun deck. Sky deck was expanded by a new extension that increases sunning space. A new plastic deck covering on Sky deck drains quickly and eliminates the problem of outdoor carpeting that never seems to dry. The deck extension provides additional shaded areas below it on Sun deck. Additional glass was added along the sides of Sun deck providing better weather protection. Carpeting in the public spaces and in all cabins was replaced.


There are 10 categories with staterooms attractively furnished in soft tones and featuring two lower beds that convert to queen, small bathroom with shower, hairdryer, cabin-controlled thermostat, duvet, TV, and radio. Inside cabins measure 140 sq. ft.; standard outside cabins are 152 sq. ft; superior deluxe suites are 176 sq. ft. Owner's Suites include a living room, separate bedroom, picture windows, refrigerator, stereo with CD library, tub and shower. There are no balconies on this ship.

Important notes: all cabins on the port side of the ship are non-smoking. Staterooms on Promenade Deck open to the jogging track. Some cabins have fully obstructed views and some with partially obstructed views so choose carefully.


The food is fine, service is good, but the views are the best. Tables for two, four, six and eight are featured. Dining rooms are assigned by cabin location (but guests can request a restaurant and table size if available). The Four Seasons (260 diners) is the nicest, most intimate restaurant, followed by Seven Seas (636 seats). Both have terraced seating and floor-to-ceiling windows. The Four Seasons has great tables next to glass walls on each side. Dining rooms offer open seating for breakfast and lunch is open seating in port. As part of an alliance with Cooking Light, menus feature more than 160 of the magazine's delicious recipes. Le Bistro, a reservations-only, 78-seat alternative restaurant, serves Italian fare at $5 per person additional charge. Cafe Royale is small but offers buffet breakfast, lunch, teatime snacks. There is a poolside snack bar/pizzeria, ice cream bar and a small coffee lounge. The lavish Chocoholic buffet is the most popular of the midnight snacks. Room service is available 24 hours.


NCL excels in nighttime entertainment. Smokey Joe's Cafe is a production featuring 50s and 60s hits such as "Hound Dog" and "On Broadway", Frame 52 Disco is a popular dancing spot, and the Winners' Circle Casino has six blackjack tables, one roulette, one dice, one Caribbean Stud Poker, one Let it Ride table and 158 slots.

Fitness & Recreation

The Norwegian Majesty has a mediocre fitness center divided into two small square rooms - one room contains aerobics exercise machines and the other has an assortment of weight machines and stationery weights. Both the size of the fitness center and the number of exercise machines are far less compared to fitness centers on similar-sized ships. There are only four treadmills, four stairmasters and five stationery bikes. As a result, the room is often filled to capacity and passengers who want to work out have to wait in line to use the machines. Other onboard recreational facilities include a golf driving net, shuffleboard courts and ping pong tables. There are also two Jacuzzis, sauna, massages and a daily schedule of aerobics classes. Located midship on deck 10 is the main swimming pool with a terraced deck, and deck 9 has a Children's Splash pool.

Public Areas

Interiors have a contemporary ambiance with lots of glass walls that afford views of the sea and ports. As a result of the stretching, the Four Seasons Restaurant was expanded to encompass the entire width of the ship. The Palace Theater features a stage for revues including the Sea Legs Circus at Sea; views are good from most seats. Polo Club, a horseshoe-shaped piano bar with a dance floor is one of the most popular lounges on board for a drink after the show. The Royal Observatory Lounge with its floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides is great for watching Bermuda sunsets. For people watching, the Rendezvous Lounge is best. The 24-hour Internet Cafe is equipped with four computer terminals (cost is 75 cents per minute). There is no self-service launderette; laundry and dry cleaning are available for a fee.


NCL's "Kid's Crew" program is divided into three age groups. Junior Sailors (2 - 5), First Mates and Navigators (6 - 12), and Teens (13 - 17). Operating on Sea days: 9am - noon, 2 - 4:30pm, 7:30 - 10 pm. In port: 3 - 5pm, 7:30 - 10pm in the "Kids Korner" playroom. Only group sitting is available; evenings from 10pm - 1am; in port from 9am - 5pm. Cost is $5 per child per hour; the second child is $3.
