Majestic Princess Cruise Review by Dishy2468
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Australia & New Zealand
- Cabin Type: Balcony
It was the first time we had been on a cruise and it far exceeeded our expectations.
Service and staff were excellent and probably the best thing about the boat.
Enjoyed the entertainment we saw ranging from comedians to magicians and singers.
Did not get to see the musicals only because it’s not our thing however we heard they were good.
Fine dining and specialty dining was very good with the exception of Harmony which we did not rate being spoilt by excellent Chinese’s food in Australia.
I suggest anytime dining rather than set times as it was tricky at times to coincide eating with going to shows.
Loved the Italian Pizza restaurant
NZ was spectacular and the excursions we did through the boat were well organised and really good.
Cooking school at Akaroa was a highlight and was booked via the ship.
Our self tours were also great and there are lots of options once you left the shop to self book things and tours.
Rooms were a good size we thought and well designed with lots of wardrobe space and balcony was good enough for us- would def8nitley always go a balcony room for future cruising
Remember to have money left in AUs or NZ dollars for a tip for exceptional service from staff at the end as we were a bit disorganised with this.
We did not do the drinks package but maybe in hindsight we would in future as we love a cocktail however you are able to byo with corkage at ports for bottled wine and bubbles which we only realised towards the end of the cruise.
Only negative we had was pools way too small for the Aussie market and inside pool was like a swim centre but definitely would book with Princess again.
