  3. Majestic Princess
We cruise to NZ every year, and Princess is our favourite cruise line. Majestic Princess is only two years old, and is still in very good condition. The ports of call are excellent, and there is a fairly good selection of shore excursions. The public areas are spacious, and the cabins are a good size. The bed is very comfortable, but there is only one chair. The balcony on this cabin was a very good size, with two deck chairs, a small table, and two foot stools. The food was well presented but quite repetitive. The waiters were very obliging and efficient, and also polite and friendly. The entertainment staff left a bit to be desired, with one member who didn't turn up to organise one event, and who was also 15 minutes late for another. The production shows featuring the singers and dancers were fabulous. The Wake Show (the morning in-house TV show featuring all the events of the day) was not very interesting, and we stopped watching it after a few days. We have noticed that the standards on Princess have deteriorated over the years we have been cruising (26 cruises with Princess, 10 with other cruise lines), so I think our next NZ cruise will be with someone else.

Great cruise, but food was a bit boring.
