This was an 8 night cruise from Sydney to Melbourne, Hobart then back to Sydney. Boarding was easy and painless, about the best cruise line we have experienced for this. The ship is new, clean and despite it's large ...

Not Majestic at all

I’m not even sure where to begin with this review as I’ve never felt compelled to leave such negative feedback about a cruise, let alone whilst I’m still on the ship! A bit about me first, I’m 31 and ...
