Majestic Princess Cruise Review by jarydr

  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand

Just completed Shanghai to Brisbane - 20 nights and still sick.

My numerous attempts to speak to management re lack of enforced handwashing/cleaning of handrails etc, fell on deaf ears,

Every night in the theatre, numerous people could be heard coughing/sneezing right across the whole audience. Passengers who have previously cruised on Majestic, told us that this is normal - good business for the medical centre - upper respiratory infections/runny noses, Spoke to a passenger who said her husband had been confined to their cabin with confirmed Influenza A. Also a number of cases of diarrhoea and vomiting.

Just very poor infection control for a ship of this quality and size.

Will definitely think twice before we rebook princess. We have never experienced this much sickness on a cruise before - and we are very regular cruisers on princess, royal caribean. celebrity etc,

Every time we booked a Princess excusion, we were short by at least 1/2 to 1 hour. And the numerous excuses for the reasons why, were an absolute insult to your intelligence i.e. too much traffic on the harbour when they had taken down sufficient tender boats for 3500 passengers.

Very glad we were not on the previous cruise after reading previous reviews, but there continued to be numerous black hairs right through the whole cabin/bathroom /balcony repetedly,

For the price we paid for this cruise, I did expect much better.

On the positive side, the food was good, TV in room was excellent and the hollywood club was great too.

Some ot the staff were sensational and made the greatest effort to be personable and lots of fun i.e. trivia and ukelele lessons.

Just such a pity that basic cleaning/maintenence was not carried out apprpriately. And a 900 seat theatre for 3500 passengers is rediculous - had to get there 30 - 45 mins prior to show if you wanted a seat.

Have 3 more cruiises booked over the next 2 years and none of them are Princess!!!!!!!
