After booking 6 months in advance and thinking we were booking a dream holiday we not prepared for this! It was supposed to be a wonderful trip from Shanghai to Sydney with wonderful excursions, fun and entertainment! Spent a great 3 days in Shanghai before the cruise during the 70 year anniversary in China. 3 hours to board the ship, due to the Chinese authorities was bad enough but then to ...

Primarily I chose this cruise because it was a way of returning to Australia after holidaying in the UK. However it was a wonderful experience. We visited ports of great interest and met many lovely people. We enjoyed all of the on board activities and felt that for 23 days we were living a life of luxury - which we were! The ship was comfortable and large. The only thing I missed was a dedicated ...

We arrived in Shanghai for 3 nights before the cruise,we were aware that the biggest percentage of guests would be Chinese,what we didn’t expect from royal Caribbean was the food /entertainment and everything else were definitely aimed for the Chinese market only,the food was by far the worst food We have ever had on any cruise ship we have been on,the entertainment was an absolute joke,they had a ...

Other reviewers have referred to the debacle that was our boarding in Shanghai. A two to four-hour wait in the Asian heat was just the beginning of our worst cruise of more than twenty so far. This ship is shockingly, badly designed. On board there is no sensation of being at sea, due to the enclosed nature of all of the public areas. There are not enough lounge seats for more than 3500 ...

This ship was completely unprepared for this repositioning cruise from Shanghai to Sydney. The service in the dining room was the slowest and most incompetant Ive ever experienced. We had anytime dining, which should have been called queue up and wait a long time. When we finally got a table we mostly got only one waiter for a table for 8. A waiter who seemed to be inadaquately trained ...

We chose this cruise because of the destinations and the timing suited us both. We spent three nights in Shanghai which gave us enough time to explore this interesting city. What did I like about our cruise onboard the Majestic Princess? The service was very good, friendly and efficient. The tapas in Vines Bar pre-dinner was a nice addition. The Hollywood Pool Club was a pleasant ...

Travelled to Asia to join Cruise and Shanghai embarkation was abysmal. After arriving at the allotted time we were shown to a holding lounge for a bus transfer. The bus arrived and all passengers were told to load their luggage into the bus as the driver would not open the doors under the bus- those of us who could load the bus did so and helped those who were unable to do so. The bus arrived at ...

The WORST cruise ship ever

I will start with the positives - disembarkation at Sydney was fast and efficient. That's the positives taken care of! So now the ship and the cruise! The ships main problem is too many passengers and not enough public areas - so it is ALWAYS busy and finding a seat is not easy. Embarkation took over 3 hours for most people thanks to total disorganization at the port. At meal times with ...

Wanted to see some of Asia and this one was shown to us.Enjoyed it very much. Embarkation was a nightmare though , something has to be done about it if a ship leaves Shanghai, no thanks to the Chinese government, we think. Dining room food leaves a lot to be desired, was disappointing. It was the first time we chose to miss dinner there, at least 5 nights. Overall loved the ship, crew, ...

On Majestic Princess for 47 days - Some parts extremely disappointing

Review for Majestic Princess to Trans-Ocean

Chose back-to-back-to-back cruises on Majestic Princess (totaling 47 days) due to itinerary and effectively a brand new ship (about 1 year old). The Majestic overall was disappointing: 1) One of the 4 front elevators was out-of-service for the entire 47 days - extremely inconvenient for those of us with forward cabins. This also was totally unacceptable for an almost brand new ship. We ...
