Majestic Princess Cruise Review by Gjmmaxup

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Majestic Princess is the nicest ship I have ever been on, this was my 9 Princess ship, by far better than the others including Regal Princess.

We embarked easily just walked straight on.

Disembarkation was long as usual.

They were not very organised with shore excursions, after all the practice and years they have been doing this, waiting times seem to be getting longer.

Shore excursions of getting very overpriced.

Had trouble getting to a show in the threatre after dinner as it was full, for the 13 nights on board we did not see one production show, they were all full on both sessions. The theatre seemed smaller on the Majestic than the other ships, it could have been the layout not sure.

The Captain on this cruise did not make himself very public only saw him once and that was at the Captains Cocktail party for return guests.

Cabin Review

Balcony

I cant remember my cabin number, but it was a balcony cabin, nothing special, just like all other Princess Cabins, bathroom I thought was a little larger.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Tauranga

Meet friends, went to the hots springs.

Very expensive, took about 12 hours, bus driver was full of himself, he worked for Peter Jackson as Security during filming and thats all he talked about. The guide he picked up halfway through was nice, she was very informative.

The port was not on the itinerary but the ship had to change course due to bad weather.


Went to two specialty restaurants, the steak and the Chinese personality I think the cover charge is to high, as the dinning room food was just as nice. The Chinese food was disappointing.

The dinning room food was excellent, wine service a bit slow, they always have trouble trying to find the bottles leftover from previous meals. The cue to getting into the dinning room was horrendous, having to line up for up to 30 mins.

Only played trivia and bingo on board.
