Review of Ocean Majesty
The cruise ship mv Ocean Majesty was built in 1966 and planned to serve as a ferry 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 sister ships.
History - construction & ownership
The 10,417-ton, 620-passenger cruise ship Ocean Majesty was sold to Sol Mediterranean and renamed Sol Christina is 1985. After being idle for many years, the vessel was acquired by Opale Lines and changed its name to Kyros Star. Later, the ship was sold once again to Majestic International Cruises. The new owner transformed the ferry into a cruise ship and a new name was assigned - Ocean Majesty. Majestic International operated the ship for some time and chartered it to Epirotiki in 1994. After the charter contract expired, the cruise ship regained once again the name Ocean Majesty. It has been chartered many times.

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 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 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.
