  3. Majestic Princess
I chose this ship as it was new, but after cruising on the Royal Princess 2 years ago, which is a beautiful ship, plenty of atmosphere, great menu, happy hour I felt these things were missing on this ship. I hope it adjusts for the Aussie market. It would be great to have a ship this size based in Australia.Also there is no walking track, the Royal Princess has an excellent walking and running track. The Majestic Princess could improve the atmosphere on the ship, more activities like shows in the attrium to make more lively. Improve the menu and stock up better with Aussie wines. Also the cost of bottled water seems to have doubled. Hopefully the reviews for this ship will improve and I will enjoy another cruise from Australia in the near future. The ship is so big that it is very smooth on the ocean, hardly know where sailing. The Vista lounge was always hard to find a seat as to many bulky seats that take up extra room. The Crooners bar could do with the glass panels removed as its used as a piano bar and it would be great to see the talented singer/pianist. The show dancers only put on a show in the theatre 3 times in 3 weeks., it would have been nice if they had a few more shows. The show band were excellent and seem to perform every day. The dining room staff were always friendly but the menu wasn't as good as other Princess ships. A lot of bottles of wine ran out half way through the cruise as well. The shore excursions were good, and no problem with the tender for 1 port. As for the embarkation in Shanghai, it would have to improve as left a lot of people to fend for themselves with heavy suitcase in the heat of the day for hours, not a pleasant experience before a cruise. Our cabin was good as we had a mini suite, so very comfortable and our cabin stewart was very good and friendly.

Not too bad
