Ocean Majesty Review

Review of Ocean Majesty

The 1966-built MV Ocean Majesty cruise ship was planned to serve as a cruiseferry for Trasmediterranea. The first name of the vessel was "Juan March" and initially, it was used mostly as a ferry to transport passengers from Spain to the Balearic Islands. This was the first of two almost identical Albatros-class sisterships.

History - construction and ownership

The 620-passenger ship Ocean Majesty (as "Juan March") was launched/floated out from drydock on December 4, 1965, and delivered (to Trasmediterranea) on July 27, 1966. In 1985, the vessel was sold to Sol Mediterranean and renamed "Sol Christina". After being idle for 2 years (1985-86), the boat was acquired by Opale Lines and renamed "Kyros Star" (1986-88). In 1989, Opale Lines sold it to Majestic International Cruises. The new shipowner transformed the ferry into a cruise ship and renamed it "Ocean Majesty". Majestic International operated the liner for 6 years (1988-94) and chartered it to Epirotiki (1850-founded Greek shipping company) in 1994-95 (under the names "Olympic" and "Homeric"). After the charter contract expired, the ship regained once again the name "Ocean Majesty". It has been chartered many times.

Cruise itinerary program

Ocean Majesty itinerary program is based on the Mediterranean, Baltic and Western Europe cruises, with departures from Venice, Genoa, Piraeus, Kiel and Hamburg.

Cabins

MV Ocean Majesty has 274 staterooms, of which 185 are outside (including 16 Suites, of which 8 with private step-out balconies).

All cabins are equipped with air conditioning, shower, satellite TV, radio, safe. Minibars are fitted in all suites.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

The dining room is located amidships, on the lowest passenger deck. The room has no windows making it a little reminiscent of the dining rooms found on the great Ocean Liners. However, it is quite attractive in a retro style, with interesting glass chandeliers. Dinner is served in two evening sittings. The other dining area is the informal "Lido garden", featuring a glass-domed roof. 

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

MV Ocean Majesty features a casual and friendly atmosphere, lively entertainment and exciting ports of call. The "Majestic Lounge" is probably the most appealing space onboard, with a bar and a piano. Directly behind it is the "Starlight" show lounge, also attractive, but with the usual problems associated with old-style show lounges.
