On the majestic now. You can plug it in on the side but there is no way to change the input as the remote is basic. I felt around for buttons on tv, nothing.

It appears as though they're setup the same as the Regal and Royal. The connection at the bottom looks to be their HDMI connection. If you remove their cable, you can substitute your HDMI cable and there's not need to try & change the TV's input. Of course you'll have to go through this swap each time you want to view your movies.

Are there kettles (hot water) in the rooms? I ask because once the Sapphire relocated to Asia, they put hot water kettles in each room. They were so handy for making tea, hot chocolate, and instant coffee.

Thanks for any info, have a lovely cruise.

I'm on board the ship now-- the HDMI port is definitely there.

Unfortunately, the manual control button on TV itself has been completely disabled-- the only thing that does anything is the remote. Therefore, it's impossible to change the input.

It's a Samsung TV. On other boards, folks say that if you bring a Samsung remote from home, you may be able to change the input via your home Samsung remote. I don't have one on me so I'm in no position to try. Hope this helps someone!

With the new movie program Princess has I wonder why you'd want to bring movies from home? Unless you mean movies you make each day on your cruise. Princess has new release movies now and heaps of selections across all categories, more than most long distance flights! We watched all the top movies from the Oscars (LaLa Land, Moonlighting, Lion, etc) within weeks of the award ceremony!

The only option is to unplug their cable & utilize their HDMI input for your device.

I bring many movies that Princess would never think of showing due to content. Their versions also don't include subtitles which can make it better for viewing early mornings what I have to keep the volume down.

I do agree that they do have a large selection for everyone.

Many phones (particularly samsung phones) have IR emitters and can use a TV Remote app, and
function as a tv remote.

On Royal, the TV firmware is fixed, so the only thing you can adjust is volume.
If you wish other content, your only choice is to unplug the princess hdmi cable, and plug in your own.

Here's another question related to the TV on the Majastic Princess. Is there enough space behind the TV to utilize the other electrical socket & is it a standard socket?

Thanks!

I haven't been on the Majestic but if similar to the Regal or Royal there's no way to use the AC outlet. The TV is so tightly mounted to the wall it's a job just to get you hand behind the TV even slightly.

My experiece on Royal was that the tv was locked in firmware, and the only thing
a remote could do was change the volume.

This was with a samsung tv. There is another brand of tv on royal as well
Maybe vizio?

There may be other brands in the PAX rooms but I know for sure they have Viewsonic Model VT4236LED and Samsung. The Viewsonic HDMI input is much easier to disconnect & reuse for your input cable.
