  3. Majestic Princess
First time on a Princess cruise and won't hurry to get on another one. Embarked in Singapore and got off in Shanghai. Chose this cruise as it let us visit a number of parts of Asia on our way to Europe. Also we were told that Princess cruises had a good reputation for service etc. We had no problem boarding the ship in fact it was the most efficient boarding experience we have had from the past number of cruises we have been on. Cabin was very good as was the service from our cabin person. We mainly had breakfast in the buffet on deck 16. The service there was poor and probably the worst we had from any cruise. Found it strange that we had to have the main breakfast in one part and then move to another part if we wanted pastries. The service did get a bit better the last few days of the cruise. Had anytime dining meals where the service was much better, however we wanted to try the normal dining but were told we could not do it. Entertainment on the whole was good but there were some artists that were second rate. This showed by the number of people leaving shows before they finished. Excursions we went on were good however the getting on and off the ship seemed very poorly organised. We sat on a coach for over an hour before the tour to the Demilitarized Zone started when visiting doing a tour in South Korea. As part of the cruise we watched the sports channel on our TV. We were extremely unhappy when this channel was discontinued about a week before the cruise ended, We have never had this before.
