We are not new to cruising. We were travelling with two other couples from previous cruises. Stunningly large ship doesn’t always mean a great ship. Cruise was great ship less than good. We experienced a lot of negatives such as. Not enough pools, unsupervised Hollywood Observatory adults only pool and someone took their grandchild in who defacated in the pool meaning the closure of pool for 2 days. Grill restaurant Tbone was well done on the edge and raw in the middle to the point you would get sick if you ate the bloody meat. One staff member was rude both during photos at dinner and at the shop. Another staff member sold me a $600 camera with an American warranty. Thankfully I returned it the next day and got the Australian version. What does it say when a staff member ask you where did you get the blankets for movies under the stars. We bought the soda package online and waited four days before receiving our soda drink bottles and then only because we asked every day. I also bought a coffee as I like my lattes. Alas never got a decent coffee the whole two weeks. Very bitter and I would like to ask the question did they have a barista or just use the staff. Never once did we get into Princess theatre. It’s too small and people were waiting for 1.5 hours beforehand to get in to the show. Big ship and very elegant but nothing personable about it. With the hot weather coming and the lack of good size pools makes for not good swimming. Will continue to cruise with Princess but not Majestic. Oh and we even found a piece of plastic in one of the desserts but they seemed more interested in telling us the money they paid the chocolatier for his recipe. Also other ships have milkshakes or thick shakes in the ice cream shop but majestic didn’t. Crazy when you have kids onboard. Everyone you spoke to said they were not happy. Lots of trips. Nearly every second day you saw someone with a new break mainly arms. Again will cruise princess but not majestic we stopped anytime dining as the menu was nothing to write home about. It’s not good when the burgers hot dogs and even the pizzas were more enticing. Read Less

Having sailed with Princess on other occasions, we found them to be all that we expected. As soon as we heard the brand new Majestic Princess was coming to Australia, we immediately booked to go on the first cruise out of Sydney. In a nutshell the ship is big, new and shiny. The crew are fantastic, food in the Buffet ( they call it the Market Place) was okay, but we have had better on other Princess Cruises. The food in the Dining Room was very good as were the waiting staff.. Here's the crunch, The ship is big damn big, we found the balcony cabins to be smaller that on other Princess Ships. They have squeezed in more cabins (more passengers) but have failed to provide sufficient lifts to move the high number of passengers up and down the additional decks. This ship had the feel of a live sheep export ship. Crowds at the lifts were a joke. It was said that the Majestic Princess was built for the "Chinese Market". As far as we are concerned they should have kept this ship in China. In the long term this ship will not be well received in the Australian market. Read Less
