  1. Here we are back from the Majestic Princess, just got home, so will pass on our thoughts on this new ship.... very nice..but not for us.... Cheznandy have covered this ship in great detail in their wonderful blog, so these comments are just our 2 cents worth! We have done 15 Princess cruises....they are all lovely ships, this is no exception, very beautifully fitted out indeed..we did have a great time travelling with family, we all enjoyed ourselves.. She is way different to any of the other ships we have been on...our faves are Sapphire, Diamond, Ruby, Emerald. these ships have lots of room for everyone and lots of spaces to sit and lounge without too many crowds.... The Majestic has one large Piazza area which unfortunately was packed with people from about 8am to 11pm...very hard to get seats there at anytime.... they have music there, art shows, painting classes, line dancing etc, as there is very little other space to hold these events... Crooners was good, and the Crown Grill bar was good, always crowded, and no dance floors in either of these venues. We found the ship hugely crowded, with limited seating in most places, which is a shame as she is a lovely ship, just not laid out too well for the Aussie market... no chance getting a seat in the shows unless you went about an hour or more early to nab some seats.:mad: The staff were great, cabins were lovely, and embarkation very quick. Movies under the stars was great, you could get a seat up there! Unfortunately I got very sick onboard....Medical staff were great when I got the dreaded noro virus on day 7, they were quick to send meds, and I recovered quickly..first class service there! Sadly...The anytime dining did not work for us at all....we tried 4 nights to get a time... but were only offered 5.15 or after 8pm...so we gave up after that and went to the Alfredos pizza...very good fortunately... we went to the steakhouse one night...not as good as on the other ships, and the noise did drift in from the bar next door....the food was a little under par of any of the other ships we have been on, I'm sure they will fine tune this as time goes on... We had a great time, and we are glad we sailed on her, but we will stick to the other Princess ships, and of course..the fabulous Celebrity Solstice.... Happy cruising to you all... S&D:):)
