We boarded in Barcelona great city. Embarkation easy. We liked the ports this cruise offered and being a new ship were so excited to sail on her, We were on the Majestic Princess for 35 nights Barcelona to Singapore for our trip of a lifetime. The ship herself is beautiful and new but not a ship for entertaining her travellers. The Piazza was always busy for line dancing and ballroom lessons it seemed, day and night, when the entertainment of Evolution was on board it was a breath of fresh air to be able to enjoy the music and dance but after Dubai the new band was terrible, very poor entertainment for a princess ship. Heddon Band great and Arny G great for relaxing with a drink in the evening. Grill Bar was the only place to be entertained but had to dance on carpet or in the passage. Cruise Director Dan organised nothing much for the pleasure of passengers, Paper Plane making, Juggling lessons, not for me. Bingo on sea days was good but costly for 4 games. We were bored most sea days as was many other passengers, it was very hot to sit by the very small pool area for too long. Food was good in Market Place but fruit terrible and not fresh. MDR food was good. Harmony Restaurant fair. Grill Bar Restaurant great. Chef's Table excellent. Vines Bar is great but only opened at night and does not serve sushi as on other Princess ships. Vista Lounge a crazy setup with the gaming setup. Karaoke Area never used so Lawn Bowls played in the passage of Karaoke Area. No great discounted sale days, the high end shops always empty. Most Staff were very pleasant and some outstanding but some really didn't want to be there it seemed and were not interested in more than getting through each day. Disembarkation was easy and Singapore a lovely city. Having met some great people on this cruise made it enjoyable but it lacked a great deal of Entertainment and the new layout for the Chinese market is certainly not to our liking. We missed Crooners Bar, Explorers Lounge, Wheelhouse Bar, Larger Pools, Wakeview Pool area. PublicToilets never working and never clean. Public areas often not clean. We love Princess but will not sail on the Majestic again, and hope Princess do not stay with the concept of this ships layout. Read Less

It was a new ship and it was a means of getting to Sinapore with out along flight. Faults, Standard of food improved when travel agents arrived. The slots or poker machines where used as a cash cow as the progressive jackpots were zeroed in the middle of my cruise. The cost of bottled wine and beer was excessive another company cash cow, when bottled wine is more than three times the Australian retail price it is a rip off It was a very nice ship with a very good crew apart from the aggressive Irish Pursar. The high speed internet failed after about three days and reverted to the normal email only as there was only one high speed connection for the whole ship. Port information is limited to the companies shore excursions and the ships library is a job lot of books with no organisation and nobody to control them. Conclusion, Only cruise on this ship if the price is right and there will be a lot of good deals when it starts to cruise from Sydney Australia. Bring your own Vegemite. Read Less

i-pad check-in? Waited 2 hours at the terminal in Barcelona. Water offered may be nice! More broadband than all cruise ship added together? Internet barely works. Satellite TV? Can't get any basic news for 5 out of 16 days. Staff- They are all very good. Tries hard and sincere. That includes all dining rooms, pool bars, activities etc... Guest service area- VERY POOR. Minimal line ups of half an hour or more any time of the day for the whole journey of 17 days with the exception between 1:00 a.m.-5:00 a.m.. Expect 4 representatives to serve 4500 guests? Caused frustration for everyone. It took me 3 days 6 tries to get a photo copy of the passport for my wife. Not to mention the time spent on line ups. Room-Excellent. Spacious and well designed. Attendant was excellent. Dynamic dining- Personally, I like it. I works for a longer cruise. Never have any issue. Offers a different setting and atmosphere if one chooses. However, I can imagine the bottle neck effect and frustration on a short cruise like 6 nights. Food- Quality of beef was consistently excellent anywhere we went. At the same time fish was of very inferior quality everywhere we've been to. The saucier on board makes inferior standard soups, generally with chicken or beef base with hardly anything in it. Crab cake at American Icon use surimi ( crab flavored fish product ) but no crab. Should just call it crab flavored cake. However, it was very generous to offer quality east coast lobster tail everyday in Grande and Divinely decadent. Good as appetizer but not for main course. Jamie's Italian was not worth what they charge either lunch or dinner. Entertainment- All excellent. At the ports of call- No representative to be seen to give information and direction. No information sheet available neither but one. All in all, it was an enjoyable trip. All comments meant to be for FYI & benefit to both RC and CC members. Read Less
