Service has dropped considerably. After 3 cruises with Princess cruises we are now considering other cruises companies not connected with Princess or Carnival. No happy hour. This gave us an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy our cruise. Over priced Princess excursions. We and just about everyone we speak to will not consider booking on shore excursions with Princess when then the are around four times the price. Majorly over priced Soda package. It has doubled in the last couple of years. However we have reduced our expenditure by buying less soda packages. Staff not knowing ingredients of cocktail menu. Some have no idea. Slow service all round. Like four small orange juices instead of one large. Over priced wine. Half the price by bringing your own and paying corkage. Stupid cruise ship policies. The majority of people I spoke to are not happy with Princess Cruises. From where I’m sitting this is costing you the company big time. Read Less

Hi. guys How r u! I will tell you some words which i felt and my first impressions from majestic princess on18th September to first of November with my good friends. so sorry my poor English but i will tell you the facts which i felt my experience and uncomfortable things use simple words. The food was not fresh, the cabin is very smaller than i expected and internet speed was horrible and activities not enough. many times were toilets blocked and no toilets papers. People were so crowded can't find seat during breakfast and lunch time moreover the buffet foods were everyday same manu and some vegetable especially cabbage and pumpkin were almost gone. Moreover, the free coffee's quality was so bad indeed. However there crews were so friendly and politely anytime the shows which princess theater was pretty good. Before i take on board we expected high quality of service this ship but some parts and should be up date for next guests thanks Read Less

We have been on many cruises on other ships before but never on princess. My daughters went on sapphire princess and since then they keep on telling us to try any princess cruise ship because they are the best. So we booked one and not just anyone but the Majestic one. The ship itself is grand. The design and furniture inside the ship is very modern and classy. The adults only area called the Hollywood is amazing and no other ship compares. We liked it so much that we went there everyday. The cabins are wide and near providing a fresh feel. The bed matteress and pillow is very comfortable and felt new. The tv was great as it was big in size and the selection of movies on demand was great. Being all free was also a bonus. The food in the dining room and buffet was in an abundance and god quality. There was a wide range of entertainment on board with something always to do. It was our best trip to date and look forward to our next voyage with Princess. Just like the Captain used to say "The magnificent Majestic Princess..." Read Less

We went on the Majestic Princess out of Australia in Sep 2018. The ship was relatively new and was well fitted out, the food was good, the staff were generally great and the entertainers were fantastic. However, the amenities such as the Pacific Theatre, the buffet and the piazza did not cater for the large number of passengers. We had trouble finding a seat in the buffet and we found ourselves doing a lot of standing to see the entertainment in the piazza due to a lack of seats. The Princess Theatre was a joke; to get a good seat you need to get there about 1 hour before the show. You would miss on a seat completely if you did not get there 15 minutes before the show. The drinks were also quite expensive. AUD$8.75 for a beer and $13.95 for a nip of spirits. Maybe this was to discourage you from buying drinks because most of the entertainment venues did not have anywhere to place your drink, you had to hold it in your hand or put it on the floor. We also did not get the room we booked. We were given a room 2 floors up and half way down the ship rearward. This caused a slight problem for us as we booked a room opposite my mother-in-law (82 yo) to look after her. The response from staff at the front desk was that the travel agent changed the room and there was nothing they could do. We contacted the travel agent after the cruise and they confirmed that they did not change the room. They actually did not have the access to the Princess reservation system to change our room. None the less, we had no notification from anyone and when we printed the baggage tags off on the princess site a few days before the cruise, they were for the room we had booked. This was our 7th cruise. Compared to the others this was not as good and I think the number of passengers was the main issue, I recommend you avoid this ship. We will never cruise on the Majestic Princess again and will look for ships with a more modest number of passengers for future cruises Read Less

Plenty of food but all the same lack of flavour, very bland/basic. The ship seems to carry a huge amount of stored food so the fresh food / vegetables offered by the islands of the Pacific. Even water and soft drink was from Chinese suppliers that does not have the same safety standards as Australia. Embarkation and disembarkation when docked at a pier was quick / easy. When anchored and using tenders expect to wait at least one or two hours. Entertainment was nothing special with only limited performances making it even harder to see it. Those shows that we did manage to see seemed that the Cruise Director was too busy drinking and shouting his staff drinks to ensure the show ran smoothly. The DJ seemed to think the cruise was full of 15 year olds and lacked any ability to get atmosphere. That being said the room assigned for the disco was not appropriate, lacking any vibe. The room was clean and spacious with great service from the room Steward assigned. Read Less

We went on the Majestic for a family getaway to Fiji...beautiful new ship with great crew and captain..all very helpful. Lovely cabin and steward, very spacious cabin with nice sofa and good bathroom. Priority Embarkation very quick, we were onboard by 11.30 am. Service was great throughout the ship, except the atrium area where it was too crowded ..all the time....and the poor staff where often overwhelmed. Normal Princess activities, trivia, bingo etc, all pretty standard and well run. Great movies under the stars too. Ship is spotless and new. Unfortunately, we all found the food to be no where near as good as our other 20 cruises, mostly Princess...buffett was very bland and many items could not be found...breakfast was sadly not good, huge jars of jam and vegemite with spoons in them for all to share...no sachets which would have been more hygienic ..we have never seen this before, very strange!..I unfortunately I got noro virus onboard, I had my own hand sanitiser, and washed hands outside buffet area too and used the sanitiser also in buffett, no idea how I got that, but there you go! Medical staff were wonderful, sent the meds to my cabin and I was quarantined, and recovered well. The dining rooms were okay , we had a problem with the anytime dining, they only offered us 5.15 or 8pm, so we had to eat in the pizza place and buffett quite a bit to get a good time to eat. Food was very average . The worst thing about the ship is the one and only area..the piazza...where everything happens all day and night, 3000 people with only one area to congregated and not enough seating....not good,,,one dance floor on a ship this size is ridiculous. The theatres were very crowded with people saving many seats for an hour or more before the shows, so we avoided those. The ports were good, loved Mystery island again and Noumea, and enjoyed Lautoka. She is a beautiful ship, very strange layout for such a large number of people.. too much room for the huge casino and many high end shops were a waste of valuable space which could have been given over to more bars or a nightclub.... shes just not for us...we will keep to the Diamond, Ruby Emerald etc...and Celebrity Solstice of course. Looking forward to the Ruby when she comes to stay in Oz. Read Less

We chose the ship because it’s new and classy. Nearly all food in all outlets is included. Highlight was the traditional dining room with fine dining service and scrumptious food. Embarkation and disembarkation were both quick and efficient. Deluxe balcony room was perfect - spacious and could look out at the ocean from our bed. The pool and outdoor hot-tubs were quite the bit of bliss whether in the sun or under the rain. The captain was polite and informative. We stayed on level 14 towards the front of the ship and had very little movement throughout the 12 days - the size of the ship kept it steady. Our room steward was attentive and kept things stocked and clean. The shows were ok but we mainly were on the cruise for the food, swimming and island visits - a clear focus for our luxury family cruise. Mystery Island a definite highlight. That impressed with the ship we are booking again on the Majestic Princess. Read Less
