Majestic Princess Cruise Review by bradeckx
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: South Pacific
- Cabin Type: Premium Deluxe Balcony
While owning "The Love Boat" theme and it's integration throughout was a cool touch, overall the ship and experience was average compared to other carriers / ships.
Cabin size was disappointing (we were in a PREMIUM! - I'm 6'2" and this was a ship built for the Asia market so I guess I should have expected it), dining was good (not great), entertainment was good but limited, service was actually not very good, and excursions varied dramatically.
Generally the ship was built for cabins, not venues - and so we ran out of things to do quickly - especially on multi-days at sea.
It was very much a senior cruise - as are most 10+ day cruises. Expected.
The itinerary was great although I would question the Noumea port. Not much to see in the city so without an excursion it was boring at best. We *really* depend on the carrier to provide good solid port information - probably a lesson learned there.
Sydney is an EXCELLENT port from which to embark/disembark - especially at sunset.

LifouShort walk, tiny cave, "hunting" experience was really basic. Disappointed.View All 108 Lifou Cruise Port Reviews
Also, cruise line made this one VERY difficult to book. Didn't even have it available until we were on the ship.

SnorkelingSnorkeling equipment was failing for us. Minimal views. Also, it's apparently known ocean is calm in the morning and not in the afternoon so the time of our excursion shouldn't have even existed.View All 15 Snorkeling Reviews
