Disappointing is the only way to describe this new ship, its layout is way behind the times and poor use of space. We were on board for 3 weeks and found the crew to be disinterested, not very energetic and there is a distinct lack of supervision. The food is not good particularly the buffet where food is prepared elsewhere and left to serve yourself was not hot, bland and repetitive. The specialty restaurants are not worth the visit with the exception of the Crown Grille. The only good thing to say about the dining room is that the food is hot. There is no shopping to talk of on board. Drinks are outrageously expensive, particularly wine and buy by the glass serve is miniscule. Don't bother with the Casino, it is only a place to make a donation. The plus side is minimal with the exception of the in cabin TV which would be amongst the best in the Cruise ship world, possibly to make up for the lack of entertainment. All ports were outstanding and ship excursions overpriced. Read Less

Liked itinerary. Thought it would be a relaxing 21 day cruise (the way it was booked). Turned out to be three 7 day cruises with lots of transients. Menu was boring as it was repeated exactly every seven days. Upscale restaurants are more out in open than other Princess ships. Eliminated Italian restaurant. Replaced by Asian. Most common areas are profit centers with drinks etc. No private space. Kicked out of card room to make way for Art auction. The computer room and library are combined and it is minuscule. Rarely could find seating in adult sitting area in front of ship. The chlorine smell from pool made it unpleasant, even when you found a seat. Went to two or three shows and then did not bother. Costumes and stage sets were great. Music and dancing were unimaginative. Maiden voyage. Ship is going into the Far East service. It seems to have been built with the Asiatic market in mind.

As a first time cruiser I chose The Majestic because even though the experience was meant to be traditional, I had heard that the experience would be casual with many options in terms of dining and activities. The ship itself is amazing and spanking brand new with nice decor, albeit a little to beige and gold for my taste. everything was clean and freshly painted and, very impressive indeed. I loved the cabin, it was spacious with a balcony and our steward was always helpful and everything was spotlessly clean. We used the World Fresh Market for most of our meals and the service was really very poor. The concept of different countries didn't really work as half the area was closed most of the time and the selection were poor and repetitive. This ship's downfall will be the lack of service. Not once was I impressed by anyone who served us and the crew looking after drinks in the pool areas were the most pathetic and walked around the area with sunglasses and shiny new waistcoats like models. Not once was I offered a drink and I always had to get up and go to the bar for self service. Im not sure that I would ever sail on Princess again die to the lack of service. Read Less
