Very Nice Ship

Review for Majestic Princess to Mexican Riviera

Just wanted to "test the waters" after 2020 being so confining. Very easy cruise for us to get to. Just had to drive down to San Pedro. COVID protocols were very good. ALL passengers had to be vaccinated, and ALL passengers had to have a NEGATIVE COVID TEST two days prior to departure. It made it very comfortable for us as well as all the other passengers on board. The ship holds about 3200 ...

My third cruise with Princess. They got it right this time. This is the first cruise I have had with Princess that I did not feel nickled and dimed to death. I enjoyed it so much I booked the same itinerary for March of 22. The ship was half full. The staff was exemplary. The only thing I had to complain about was Princess itself, not the ship or the staff. That infernal Princess Medallion App ...

It was our 5 th Mexican riviera cruise. This time however it was not the standard 7 day ,same ports as last time cruise. Princess came up with a 10 day itinerary that included two new ports in the sea of Cortez as well as two nights in Cabo. Princess has upgraded many of their ships to medallion class during the off time. This was our first medallion cruise and all in all it was a success. ...

The pre-cruise experience was horrendous, thanks to an app that insisted for 7 months that I needed to add my credit card info even though you could see the credit card info on the app. After numerous calls and emails to support, I was eventually told that a rep would be able to add my card to the system at check-in on embarkation day. Sadly, the rep couldn't comprehend what the problem was, when ...

Overall, the service was exceptional and food in the Specialty Restaurants was epic! The food in the buffet was average, nothing to write home about, but when cooking for 1800 guests it’s hard to get it right. The hamburger station had great service but the food was super bland. I guess when your a Chef it’s difficult to accept plain meals. I was not impressed with Cabo, Matzalain had great ...

GREAT SHIP FOR FIRST CRUISE BACK

We booked this cruise at good price during the shut down because of the itinerary and because the sailing was from the west coast. We have been on 44 cruises mostly with Celebrity but have Platinum status on Princess. Embarkation was a breeze. We were on board one hour after getting on the Princess transfer from LAX. There was really no waiting to board. We took our Covid test at a CVS in ...

I chose this a my return to cruising after more than 2 years not on a ship. This would be my 3rd cruise on Princess, the first on the Majestic. I have cruised at total of 8 times on different cruise line. I found the ship to be elegant and looked clean and well kept up. The crew was fantastic and I would have rates this cruise much higher if I was evaluating it only on these things but I'm not ...

My wife Liz and I have been wanting to go to Cabo so we just jumped in. Got a balcony room, bought the packages and got to it. First thing is that dining room food is great, but buffet was minimal. Minimal crowd so that was nice. Cruise Director and staff are really something special. Gary and Steff and the lot-wonderful. I'd say being an older ship it was good but not great. But the entertainment ...

I will preface this review by saying I am copying from my posts on the Live from that @hbccruiser authored. I’ve modified it bit to “read” better but I don’t have the time to rewrite all. So it will be “choppy”. I was happy to be on board the Grand again. We sailed at 20% capacity so of course there were no lines and embarkation, disembarkation were a breeze. Even though there were so few on ...

I picked this cruise because it was an easy port to get to and it was just the right length for my first cruise back since Covid. There were only 651 passengers which was sad but also very nice. No waiting for anything. Cabins were ready upon arrival at 12:00PM and check in was a breeze. I chose to treat myself to an owners suite aft facing cabin. Biggest mistake I could have made. While ...
