We've cruised on all three ships in this class on their maiden voyages. While we had an excellent cruise, the Majestic fell short of our expectations given our experiences on the Royal and Regal although the cruising portion went very smoothly. We chose this voyage based upon the destination ports of call and the offered excursions through Princess and our expectation that as a sister ship it would be a continuation of our previous experiences. It was not. Pre-voyage we booked into the Hotel Hesperia Presidente through Princess, and booked air accommodations through Princess EZ aire. While the Presidente is a little more pricey, its in a great part of Barcelona, includes breakfast and has excellent rooms and excellent staffing. For our post hotel accommodations, we made our own arrangements for three extra nights in Rome, plus our own transfer service sharing with two other couples. During the voyage we booked excursions entirely through Princess. We had only one disappointment out of many and Princess refunded 40% of our cost. Our favorite excursion was at port of Livorno, where we did the best of the best for Pisa/Florence and had an excellent guide. Our journey included a five-star luncheon at the Villa La Massa just outside Florence, in the countryside. It included the Galleria Accademia (for the statue of David,etc,) and the Uffizi Gallery. Outstanding service from our guide. Our cabin aboard ship, was an aft balcony. While it was nice, it wasn't worth the extra money, mainly because we were never in it long enough to appreciate it and because we never had a great sunrise or sunset view. The food was unremarkable in selections but well prepared and served. Aboard ship, we were disappointed to not have the Sanctuary as we had known it from the Royal and Regal. Instead they have the Conservatory, which is noisy, lacking in style and purpose. Read Less

The Majestic Princess was beautiful. It was so shiny and new and smelled like a new car. We loved the décor and the newness of the ship. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. There were plenty of elevators and the staff was wonderful. The cruise was quieter that most that I have been on perhaps because there was such a mix of people. Many Chinese and many Australians. There was very little sales push for the stores on board which was a pleasant change. The food in the main dining room was better than ever. The food in the buffet was very good, too. The Chinese Restaurant on board was not to American tastes. It was truly a Chinese Restaurant. Alfredo's was great and being free is always a benefit. This is not a cruise ship that young people would necessarily enjoy as there were few young people on board and not many activities that they would have been crazy about. The entertainment was not good. The strobe lights were shocking and the entertainers not good - except for the three tenors. The excursions were awful. Don't bother. The ports are small and easy to walk around. The itinerary was the reason that we took this ship and it proved to be a bit overwhelming. So many ports in so many days. Read Less

The ship was certainly impressive in appearance, the entertainment was good in the theatre, the service all-round was excellent especially in the MDR and Piazza bar area. The food was good in the MDR every night. Dined at Harmony the food was tasty but not sure its worth the additional supplement. The marketplace (horizon court) where we had breakfast each morning was a little disjointed, everything seemed difficult to find and spread out with no real flow. The addition of the bakery in that area however did work for me. The ship did lack bars and an additional entertainment venue due to it being fitted for the Asian market. We travelled with a 6 year old who loved the basketball court/football pitch, table tennis and pools. He did not attend the kids club, we did visit on embarkation day and the facilities looked excellent. (he decided not to go). I would travel on this ship again and would use Princess for future cruises. Read Less
