All opinions are welcome, it is afterall only mine.
We all have different reasons for cruising, mine doesn't include paying a premium for a sub-standard service or accepting first world hand me downs like those two tired old rust buckets and being contented because it sails out of our homeport.
This has more to do with this pair being the only real choices year after year (except for one Circ. Pac. I can recall) to be offered to Australians for World, Circle Pacific or Cherry Blossom cruises all above a minimum 38 nights duration.
To have a new fit for purpose ship like Majestic in that list over these two clunkers beggars beyond belief. To me it feeds into the Aussie mindsets of "she'll be right mmmate" we will put up with what ever bones you Multi-Nationals want to throw us and be happy with it. What's more we will pay a premium over & above that than anyone else in the world does for the pleasure as well, just give me a cheap drinks package.
How many cruises over 14 days have you spent on the Sun Class ships just as an interest?
Have you ever been on Diamond, Sapphire or even Golden Princess before it being P&O'ed?
