It had been assumed that Royal Caribbean was going to offload its oldest cruise ship, Majesty of the Seas to Spanish cruise line Pullmantur next year, but this is not going to happen now. The cruise company has decided to keep the ship after its extensive refit, taking place in April 2016.
Following the refit the 2016 Majesty of the Seas itinerary will start from May 27, 2016 and will sail to CocoCay; its private island in The Bahamas, as part of her four-night cruise.
We do not know why Royal Caribbean has decided to keep the ship, although we do know that the Majesty of the Seas changes will make it a far better ship for cruisers. One of the more popular enhancements is said to be the “fastest Internet at sea,” and will be free to all passengers.
The other upgrades are to include a poolside movie screen, water slides, the DreamWorks Experience, and several new restaurants. More details can be found on the Royal Caribbean Blog.
