  3. Majestic Princess
Over all the experience was not so good. The ship was too big, it had to be docked at Circular Key not White Bay as it wouldn’t fit under the Harbour Bridge. The laundry's were located the end of the ship on each deck directly above and below each other, meaning a cut lunch and a water bottle was needed. Some of the wait staff spent more time speaking to each other rather than looking after the paying passengers. The price of refreshments was a rip off being &42 a bottle and $12 to $14 a glass for wine. Water in the state room was also overpriced at $6.50 for a 1.5 ltrs bottle. The entertainment was that good, not a lot of of variety offered. The big screen was not used that often for movies. The main entertainment areas were located at either ends of the ship again meaning the cur lunch and water bag were needed. The layout of the main eating areas (help your self) on deck 16 was rather strange, having different sections for different foods but not those that should have been together ie the bread was with the cakes not with the hot foods. It meant by the time it took to get all you needed to make a main meal and returned to your table it was cold.

Not so much a Majestic experience

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB B319
A Mini suite, was very good, able to separate lounge and bed areas by curtains. Each had a TV attached to the wall. The shower was incorporated in the bath.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The price for a tube of Pringles was $7.95, twice the price from on land.
The Computer/Library room was very small, it only had 3 desktop computers which on sea days you had to line up to use them.
The book content of the Library was poor, books that were borrowed and returned and put into the locked return cabinet was never cleared during the entire trip. This meant that the shelves were only half full.
The only positive comment I can make for the whole experience on this ship was that the cabin (a mini suite) was very comfortable and the attendant was very polite as well as helpull. Other than that I personally wouldn't recommend going on it, stick to the smaller vessels being the Sun or the Sea Princess.
