The Majestic Princess is a beautiful ship. The atrium is spectacular. However we prefer the older and smaller Princess ships such as Coral Princess, Diamond Princess etc. All our favourite venues for dancing, which we love, and listening to live music such as the Explorers Lounge, Wheelhouse Lounge and Crooners Bar have been replaced by restaurants and Princess Live on the newer ships. On Majestic Princess most of the dancing is in the atrium which is a very public and crowded area. The ship often seemed very crowded especially when 4000 passengers go to the buffet at the normal eating times. On this cruise we had 400 kids. Many were poorly supervised and wandered around on the dance floor to mid nite. Some as young as 4 years old. This is an accident waiting to happen. Complaints to the service desk did not resolve the issue. Dress standards are no longer enforced. “ Smart casual” now means shorts, thongs and T shirt. In contrast, staff were immaculately dressed. Even on formal nites only about 30% of passengers now get dressed up. As we love getting dressed up we found this very disappointing. We found the food in the buffet very good with a wide variety and selection of food types including Indian, Mexican, Italian and English. We found the staff very polite and helpful but under stress due to sheer number of passenger requests and service.

In the future we will only travel on the smaller Princess ships.
