  3. Majestic Princess
We wanted to go down under to Australia and New Zealand. This cruise was reasonably priced and had a lot of New Zealand ports. The majestic princess exceeded our expectations. The food was great, the service was outstanding, and the entertainment was brilliant. We really loved the day activities such as trivia and name that tune. We thought we had sufficient time at each port. The on boarding and disembarking process was well planned and had no waiting around. The only only problem we had was the room warmed up too much during the night. The waiters in our set time seating for dinner were so good and friendly that we tipped them extra. The ship is really well decorated and clean. We only had to search hard for a table once in the buffet area for breakfast. We enjoyed all the ports except Auckland, because it’s a big city and we did no excursions there. The port we stopped at which was close to Christchurch was our least favorite excursion, but we are still glad to have seen it. We took the 1.5 hour trip from the dock to Christchurch with uninspiring scenery . Then Christchurch is still in repair from the earthquake 8 years ago. Lots of scaffolding, construction sites and closed buildings. We visited 3 days after the shooting and saw an outstanding outpouring of love and sympathy with digs and flowers. The free museum is well done and we spent most of our day there. We ate at a great Indian restaurant. We booked small excursions on our own at most ports and enjoyed all of them. Hobbiton was a great tour which we recommend as was the glowworm cave at the Bay of Islands small group (4 of us) tour. The value we received was well worth the cruise price. We loved our cruise and look forward to another Princess Cruise

Fantastic journey

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin ME E703
The location of our cabin was perfect. It was close to the rear stairwell/elevator. Being on the 8th floor made it easy to walk down to dinner each night. In the morning we hopped on the elevators and went up to the 16th and walked right into the buffet.
