Good food experience with many options.No problems suppling food of your choose. Crown Grill still has good quality. International Cafe is good for light snack & coffee. Entartainment good but spaces limited to first diners. Pleaty of things to do during the day. Staff always willing to help you in need. outside area easy to get around with easy aCCESS TO FOOD & DRINKS. Cabin staff good with room always completed in time and never have to wait. Need to improve excursion departures compared to other princess cruise ships and depature disbarkment took some time compared to meeting times but only a sdmall problem. embarkment good and could board before scheduled time and luggage drop off excellant and recieved cases prompltly in rooms and could unpack before dinning time. Good cruise and would only consider Princess cruises for future cruises. have already travelled 12 times with another 2 cruises booked for the future. Read Less

The lovely cabin was the highlight of this ship. The Majestic Princess is certainly large! A cross between a Westfield shopping mall and a casino. Quite difficult to navigate as most of the large open areas have no markings as to what direction is the front of the ship. They run red carpet on the starboard side and blue on the port side in the cabin hallways, common sense was obviously not used in this design decision. All of the (non-automatic) doors in the public areas are not marked with pull or push markings confusing many passengers. The entertainment and shows were great. The princess theatre was usually packed out at least 15 minutes before each show. They would simulcast the shows to princess live which is set up like a large TV studio but has the speakers overhead and a low ceiling so the sound quality is awful. They tend to cram the shows to conflict with the dining hours and they generally do not run matinee sessions which would be more appropriate on sea days. The design of this ship makes it very difficult to walk around the outside. There is no promenade deck you can do laps of and they deliberately close off areas to make it more difficult. The forward sections of deck 7 are cordoned off as crew only and the deck comes to a dead-end at the back of both sides of the ship. You can walk around the top when they do not block off the stairs due to "high winds" which they even did in light to moderate wind conditions. Being a large ship the tender transfers were generally well organised but the some of the tender crews appeared quite inexperienced. This was our second cruise with Princess and we prefered the smaller Crown Princess. Read Less

First cruise on this ship. Internals similar to Sun and Sea Princess but bigger. Takes a while to get from one end to the other, apparently has 3500 passengers in Australia but up to 4500 whilst overseas. This probably explains why ship did not feel busy ( except of course in Princess Theatre-as per usual for Princess Cruises). Being set up for overseas it had things that Princess once had in Australian ships.eg free soft cone ice creams, full cream ice cream at Bistro ( or Marketplace as they call it), pizza's free but with other items, free noodle bar, free hamburgers etc. Alcohol is expensive as no Australian $6 beers ( they were $8.50) no $9 glass of wine ( they were $14 up) compared to P&O. Duty free prices on board for alcohol was still twice the price in Port Vila. Princess Theatre had an extra escape route to level 6 which meant could exit with no problems as compared with Sun and Sea. Dancing and singing group larger then usual and put on great shows with effects, however, I am sure they were the second rate singers on board. Other shows were hit and miss, some great and others well so so. Always great to have a band playing not pre recorded music as on P&O etc. Entertainment crew boss Andrew was very good and deputy Cristiaan was excellent, other were ..so so. Stores only sold expensive rubbish, nothing worth buying. International café free was good, coffee on board was boring no real taste.But coffee cards loaded onto cruise card were good value. Cannot walk around ship on one level as on Sun and Sea, but plenty of room upstairs to move. Gym was excellent full of equipment and 24 hour access. Marketplace (Bistro) was excellent and plenty of variety, no need to go to restaurants. Only problem was finding what you need as so big, things scattered, but plenty of seating and quality and variety very good. Trivia prizes crap which maybe good as to reduce trivia rage.... Rooms were good, better insulation in walls, larger TV with movies etc on demand free. No gratuities charged to Australians. Elite members looked after with extra afternoon snacks and cheaper cocktails. Read Less

Having travel princess before we were hoping to get more of the same And while the dinning was great and service excellent - service at other time seemed under staffed. Who wants to get a scone or toast then wait 10 minutes for the jam The highlight of past princess cruise was the entertainment staff - this time the flopped - they just went through the motions and didn’t engage the passenger to encourage participation The ship has 3000 people and most nightly activities are in the central piazza where getting a seat is hard work Shore activities were really good And their staff really helpful - it was a highlight Our room was always clean and fresh and what we expect from princess I’m still a fan - the food is always top shelf and presentation spot on. Just need to make sure the service picks back up to make in the Princess I expect Read Less
