Sailed recently between 7th and 14th May 2017 on the Majestic Princess. What an amazing, large beautiful ship and I can honestly say we had a wonderful time. Travelled with friends and the other couple who booked at the same time as us, but as the departure date approached they chose the option to upgrade their cabin via their travel agent. We didn’t and this is what happened.
We got given B210 on the port side which is on deck 11 and forward (blue carpet) and our friends got given the equivalent cabin, same deck on the starboard side (red carpet). They chose to upgrade and got moved down a deck to deck 10 and they looked out of their balcony directly down onto a lifeboat!
Not every cabin has the same view. B210 by the way was Fabulous with a very good clear unobstructed and totally private view from the balcony out to sea. 2 Lounge chairs and a small table on the balcony. Move a few metres towards Aft and you encounter lifeboats etc. There is also an amazing Sky Walk up on deck 16 which you can walk around a glass floor and it’s like walking out over the ocean but people can also look directly down into your cabin, you can see people lying on their beds. Cabins below mine had a larger balcony but I could look straight down into their balcony as they sat eating Breakfast. Be interesting if Princess Cruises read these reviews, they could maybe attach a 360degree camera view from each cabin onto their website, be interesting but each passenger would know exactly the view and balcony they are paying for.
Our cabin had lots space and loads of storage. The side of the bed next to the wall is a little small but just manageable but it’s not helped by an amazing piece of artwork which sticks out several inches, I banged my arm several times shuffling down the side of the bed. You have lots of drawers and space to put your suitcases out of the way. There is a simple safe that gives you confidence with just a 4 digit PIN number followed by # to either open or close. We ordered a pair of robes and sat on our balcony with a glass of champagne looking out to sea fabulous.
