New ship and very very big. Great ship...Ports of call were interesting, should have been longer at Singapore and Vietnam, so much to see and do. Food menu was very disappointing in the Lido bar. Very repetitive and boring. Disappointed with photo deals....no package offered...only digital copies promoted....not good! Ping pong tables were unsuitably positioned, in the wind rain and heat....should have been indoors. Gym was good, did not feel uncomfortable. Overall entertainment in Princess Theatre was good but not great, could have been better. Enjoyed the music and entertainment by the band Opus. Line dancing Flash mob Choir and yukelele was great. Balloon drop and staff entertainment was enjoyable. Loved The Majestic Princess overall. Looking forward to next cruise with Princess, already paid future cruise deposit in anticipation of a great holiday in 2020/2021. Hope my review will contribute to better changes in the future for all passengers concerned. Read Less

The Majestic Princess is an amazing ship. The staff and crew were fantastic and provided an outstanding level of service. One of the highlights has to be sailing through the Fiordlands. Absolutely stunning and we enjoyed this mostly from our balcony. There is so much to do on the ship if you choose to or you can simply relax. I would highly recommend the Chef's Table. This is worth every extra penny and as long as you enjoy fabulous food and service, then you will love it. It is also a great chance to dress up and for the men to wear sports jackets (not necessary but looks good). The food in the dining areas is fantastic and the service across the ship amazing. The bar and dining staff really know how to look after you. The entertainment on the ship is of an extremely high standard. Lots of places to sit and have a drink with friends before deciding where you will eat your dinner. You will love it. We will certainly be cruising with Princess again. Read Less

Choose the cruise for ease of journey and a number of places in New Zealand we had missed previously. We were impressed with Dunedin and fascinated with the history and beauty of Napier. Having been to Auckland before we decided to take the ferry over to Davenport, an easy choice as the ferry is right on the wharf where Majestic Princess docked. It was a lovely 15 minute ride which showcased the harbour and the little town itself was pretty and very visitor friendly; we had lunch there and browsed interesting shops before returning to Auckland. The itinerary Proved to be just the ticket! Every staff member we encountered on the ship were without fail, friendly, efficient and helpful, from wheelchair assistance at embarkation and disembarkation, to dining and stateroom staff. Caught up with all the latest movies under the stars and in cabin and really enjoyed The Crown grill, La Mer and Alfredos. Symphony dining staff were also superb. Joined the pop choir and made some new friends ….All in all loved it and are excited to return next year. Read Less

Such a fantastic ship and the step up in quality from our previous provider was HUGE. I didn't think it would be that different from our previous cruises but it really was. The rooms were so much tidier and newer. The bed was very comfortable and the air con worked well. On previous cruises the air con didn't work which was horrid. Food was fabulous, outstanding in fact and we all put on weight lol. I think above all the dining staff were superb - they went above and beyond their duty each night and we really were grateful. We ate in the Symphony restaurant and recommend it highly. We had a meal in one of the specialty restaurants but we still preferred the Symphony. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment which was also a big step up from the previous provider we've used in the past. We would definitely recommend this ship over other providers of similar value. We were so impressed that we have booked two more cruises with this company. Read Less

This is our 3rd longer princess cruise and now qualify for “ruby “ (30 sea days or more) these ranks would be fine if they gave discounts for drinks, WiFi, laundry,etc. I think you get free laundry and WiFi if you go up to platinum! Our Australia cruise started with 3 days at the Amora Hotel in Sydney... a very nice, quiet room in the convenient part of a large town. Even in our 60’s we opted for the bridge climb.. which was scary and fun! (Do the short one). We were told to embark on the majestic at a specific time based on your room floor.....ours was 4:pm. I have to admit... that is the fastest we ever got on a ship! The first sea day went quickly with the many new events to explore. We signed up for the you yang sanctuary in Melbourne our next port. Warning, this turned to be not what the description said... very difficult to see any kangaroos or koala! This tour would have been better if it was described as a sightseeing tour with a possibility of animal sightings! Our guide was good describing the area as we drove by. Another sea day... the Tasmania.... and Bonorong.... wow happy days!!! A tour with kangaroos, koalas and even dare devils!!!two more sea days... the the Fiordland and incredible scenery .....Dunedin,the next port was hilly and interesting. We toured and went to the batanical gardens.. also olverton house.. great if your into history and antiques in New Zealand! Akaroa, the next port.. was a hop in hop off... with a great driver who knew the area. We took the bike ride tour in Rotorua.. a super place inside a semi active volcanic area... with steaming geysers! Our trip ended in the Auckland hotel also a Amora... very nice hotel! We took another hop on hop off tour. Disembarking was long and painful from the ship and you wait for up to two hours to be called for port clearance! Eating on the ship for dining.... don’t get a set table number... if you want to meet people and have fun, ask for open dining or any time dining when you first book your cruise! Our room Stuart was so so ... he did his job, but not friendly like they usually are! The cabin was fine.... nice closet space... small balcony.. but mostly quiet and convenient. Read Less

My family needed a cruise suitable for our range of ages and tastes and this family friendly, low stress cruise absolutely matched our needs. Very clean ship inside and out with friendly staff and fun entertainers. We travelled from Sydney, Australia to Melbourne and Hobart and then went to New Zealand getting stops at Port Chalmers, Akaroa, Tauranga and Auckland. There was a large variety of activities that suited the seniors in our group as well as the younger cousins, too. From Zumba to Bingo to jaw-dropping production shows, we were thoroughly entertained onboard. Food was easy to acquire and change to our tastes as necessary for those with food allergies. I am pleased to note that there were accessible shore excursions and the entire ship was accessible for people with mobility issues. The outside and inside of the ship were truly majestic, with details everywhere to enhance the experience for guests of any culture. Read Less

Wanted to go to Australia and this was the best value for the money, We hadn't gone on Princess before but had been told by a former travel agent that they were a good line. It was a great experience so we signed up for another cruise next February. The service was exceptional. Everyone was more than happy to help and everyone greeted us with a smile. Embarkation and disembarkation were so organzied with few delays if any. The food was great and always prepared they way it was requested. The Captain gave us an update every day which was appreciated. We were in heavy rough seas but the ship was so stable that it wasn't a problem. Our excursions went like clockwork for the most part and were just as advertised. We saw wonderful scenery and learned alot about Australia and New Zealand. I would recommend Princess Cruise lines to everyone. Read Less

My wife and I chose this cruise to find out about this new ship. Dining in the Concerto restaurant at 5.15 was as we requested and we found the food to be of excellent quality The Theatre was good but we found it lacking a tray to put your drinks as on the Sun and Sea Princesses. Also not enough seating in the Piazza when entertainment was on We did not dine at the Market on deck 16 as we found it hard going in different places. the best layout was as in the Sun and Sea Entertainment was excellent even though you had to go at least 20 minutes earlier to get a seat Another thing we missed was the Wheelhouse which was a good place to go and listen to music and dancing Will we travel on it again PROBABLY Enbarkation was smooth it took 15 minutes to get onboard the same when disenbarking The waiters we had in the dining room were excellent and would get anything we asked for Read Less

Timing as the Cruise was over the new year and also location the ship was traveling were the important issues. Traveled on the other cruise ships during the new year eve time frame and it was very nice. This trip seemed to be smaller in activity scale when compared to other cruise trips Limited activities - Started a golf activity that was to continue - dropped without notification, no word, just dropped it. Food left a lot to be desired - Asian food represented very well however if you do not like this type of food the balance was less than acceptable - ended up eating from the kids menu for many of the meals. Became sick during the cruise and went to see the doctor - very little help - seemed as many people on the cruise were also sick with coughing and sore throats. Small room, balcony had the life boats right below the room. Read Less
