Majestic Princess Cruise Review by Tunnas

- Cabin Type: Interior
What did I like about our cruise onboard the Majestic Princess?
The service was very good, friendly and efficient.
The tapas in Vines Bar pre-dinner was a nice addition.
The Hollywood Pool Club was a pleasant place to relax during the day. Both pools are heated.
Movies under the Stars was an enjoyable experience particularly on warm evenings.
The classical musicians were excellent and provided appropriate ambience in the atrium.
The ports of call were interesting and we enjoyed all of them.
Harmony restaurant was great and well worth the cover charge.
The destination lectures were informative and interesting.
Disembarkation in Sydney was a breeze.
What did I dislike?
Embarkation in Shanghai took three hours. Enough said.
The house band often played in the atrium before dinner and the music was way too loud. It made having a conversation near impossible.
The entertainment and activities were geared towards an older demographic. Only one deck party on a 22 night cruise says it all.
Nowhere to place your drink in the theatre.
Not a lot of options where to go for night caps considering the size of the ship.
The openness of the atrium reminded me of an upmarket shopping centre.
No observation lounge or wrap around promenade deck.
We kept getting drinks charged to our account even though we both had a drink package. This was a daily occurrence.
In summary, would we go again? We’ve done a couple of cruises to south east Asia, so probably not. We’d like to explore different destinations now. This was our second cruise with Princess and have found the demographic onboard too old for us, so it’s unlikely we’ll do one in the near future. We’ve cruised with Celebrity in the past and they are more to our liking.

SingaporeWent by train to Clarke Quay and had lunch on the riverfront. Took the cable car to Sentosa Island and had a look around. The trains in Singapore are inexpensive and efficient. It’s so easy to get around.View All 569 Singapore Cruise Port Reviews
